    PG RSD12 vs RE RE 12. Is more cone area better?

    Ok.....So I'm getting ready for my new build and I'm doing in on a strict budget. I've been searching for months and have narrowed my subs down to either (4) Phoenix Gold Rsd12 or (6) RE RE12. I can get the 4 Rsd's for 300 and the RE12s for 330, so price is right on par with one another. which do you think would be better. although the REs have more cone area, I would only be feeding all six about 1500 watts due to the weird ohm load. with the Rsd's, they'll be getting around 2000 watts, maybe a little more. i know install counts for alot, but any suggestions would help. thanks.

    What cubes and tuning are you thinking for each option?

    I'm looking at roughly 8 cubes for the rsd's tuned to between 30 and 32 Hz. For the REs I was thinking about 10 cubes tuned to 32.

    Rsds like larger than 2 cubes ported. They like almost that sealed

    RE makes legit *** subs but the re12 is the legit bottom of the barrel. You might get louder at a peak frequency with the 6 REs but I think you would be happier overall with the 4 rsds. They are beefy ****ers too!

    I can make the box larger. They can take 1.8 to 2.5 ported so I should be ok with 2 cuber per sub.

    Sorry, my bad. In that case the RSD's will destroy the RE RE.

    I would just whip up a quick 8 cube sealed box and see how you like them that way first.

    What setup are you coming from?

    My setup was supposed to be two MJ-18s, but I only got around to installing one in my everyday 6 cu ft box tuned to 32. I'm sure the RSDs would get louder and lower than that.
