    well all i can really tell you is that my eD k's sound awesome SQ wise and get moderately loud while doing so, the bass is clean and crisp, i can only imagine what the O series and even the A series sound like, the A series is basically made for SQ purposes but also gets very loud. the O series is also SQ oriented. i would check out the A series, especially with the price they are running at.

    Fact 4: 1 lonely bugger is reading forums...- You hang in there sunshine!

    It's the opinion of many good ears I know, Magnum D2.




    Is this not a reasonable place to park?

    Quite frankly, there is a list of about 10-15 subs easy that match your criteria. It will ALL come down to how precisely you coordinate box and install design.
    What I always say is get the sub that matches your SQ needs, but always get one that can get louder than what you think you'll need. Subs are like breast implants, you think you know what you want till you get it, then you'll wish you went bigger.
    (ok, not the best analogy for guys)

    It is not particularly necessary to choose between a good sounding sub and a loud sub anymore. There are subs that can do both.

    JL Audio W7
    Adire Audio Brahma
    Image Dynamics IDMAX
    Elemental Designs A-series
    Resonant Engineering XXX
    Crystal CMPx2

    Those subs make little to no compromises. Basically just close your eyes and point a finger at any of those and you'll be happy. If you really don't care how loud a sub gets than you can go with another list.

    Image Dynamics IDQ
    Adire Audio Shiva
    MB Quart PWD
    Infinity Perfect

    Any of those subs will save you some money and will be loud enough for the average listener. I mean, these subs are all so good all you really have to do is pick a list to go from, find the ones that are in your price range, see which ones box recommendation fit your available space, then check the power requirements to see what size amp your willing to buy. Debating these subs is like debating which NFL QB you'd take in his prime to lead your team, its all opinion cause most of the choices are so good (I'd take Dan Marino by the way) Hope this helps.



    I'm never wrong, EVER! Just ask me.

    i think u can find more SQ in a nice 15" Brahma, or a single 12" ID max than that setup.. and it will cost the same.

    there is no best SQ sub according to other people. there is only a best SQ sub according to you. its a very subjective thing; you have to judge on your own. yes there is a definite group of subs to choose from, but there is no single best one that someone can tell you is "the best."
