    which sub would u take...need advice

    ok so earlier on i want to know differ of SQ from Q to bl...my box is tuned to 35hz at 2 cubes
    the Q is made for lower than that 28-33 hz
    BL is made for that 30 -37 hz
    BTL not sure what its made for

    i have a 1998 corvette...dont have much room for another 12

    and dont have the height for the 15 (want to be able to see out of rear window

    i like loud but of course need sq too cause it will be for daily application

    when i get sub (next month or less) i will be getting every option

    but i only have 1400-1600 rms to work with...bxi brutus 1606d

    should i go with a btl which will be underpowered or a bl?

    advice will be highly appreciated

    thx for the help

    Hifonics brutus 1606d's are overrated the way it is, so the BTL would be very underpowered.

    Re: which sub would u take...need advice

    I second the BL but I doubt there would be a huge difference between that and the Q on the same amp in the same box

    Re: which sub would u take...need advice

    You know, I'm gonna have to change my vote on this one... I'm an sq guy. I would prefer this factor to "loudness" any day, when considering a driver.

    And in staying relevant to this convo, I would choose the Fi Q.

    The general premise is that the Q should have the superior SQ, as is stated on Fi's website.
