    Undecided, help me choose.

    Over the past couple weeks I've been searching for a pair of 15" subs for under $250. Well now I'm stuck as I've found quite a few good deals and I have no idea which one to choose. Well anyways, here are my options thus far:

    Cadence Wild Beast
    RE SE
    DC Sound Labs Level 2

    For box space I have a max of 6 ft3 and I would like a ported box but I'm open to sealed. I want decent SQ but I also want to be as loud as possible. I had 2 Elemental Designs 13K.v2's in 4 ft3 so I want to at least be louder than those.

    Thanks for any help or direction,
    -Ryan

    SE's, i've heard they do great sealed both with output and SQ, and you dont have enough room to go ported with a pair of 15's, a pair of 12's ported would be better in that space

    It may be closer to 7 or 8 Ft3. My old box is still in my car so I can't get it measured out.

    Re: Undecided, help me choose.

    I was talking with Jason on the Cadence forum and he told me that the Wild Beast doesn't have good low end extension because the suspension is too tight. Going by the sensitivity on the driver I would think it would be pretty loose given that it is so high, but I guess he would know best. Anyways, I'm only using the subs for the really low (<60Hz) so it probably wouldn't be a good match for my use...

    Re: Undecided, help me choose.

    really? i found the suspension to be fairly loose. I have the ZRS and the DCX lines and the suspension on those is stiff.

    I played with a WB before and it was great, just not enough power handling
