I've been around for a long time enough to know that these threads aren't innovative but...
i'm looking for a new sub.
Being from Quebec in Canada, I can't really hear the subs at local shop since all they sell is kicker, kenwood, alpine and pioneer. I want something more exotics as people don't even know what Fi/Re/Id is around here...
Right now, i'm using two american made (old model) sd (not C) 2.5 and while they sound fine, i still want something that will sound better. Beside that, i'm not really into spl comp, but i like loud bass on friday night after job I'd say i play subs at full tilt around 20% of the time.... the rest of the time i'm just blending them with the frontstage (which is plenty loud btw)
So, i got around 6-7ft/cu NET to play with... probably more around 6-6.5 after sub/port/bracing displacement.
I would be looking for either 2 twelves or one fifteen or one eighteen with low airspace recommandation. Whatever is choosen will be ported in the 28-32 area.
I want the sub(s) to sound GOOD... a Fi Q sound good to my ear... but drop roll off too quickly in the high 50s for my taste. I still have a 18Q in my house and i tried few box combinaison without getting exactly what i want. Maybe i don't have enough airspace for it
As far as power goes, it will be powered by an bxi2006d. I prefer driving it at 1ohm and probably won't upgrade soon since i would need more batt.. which equal more weight... which equal new suspension and ... too much work. Anyway, since i don't listen to my subs at 140db all day long ... i don't need more power.
I've been offer an 15inch RD alpha v2. But i find the fs a bit on the high side, so unsure about his ability to dig low
I'd like some reccomandation from the experts... not the compagnies rep who would sell their soul for a sale...
I'm not in a hurry of buying... i just want to be sure i won't buy something that i'll want to change in 2 months.
thanks you ca people rocks
