    So lost ..don't know what to get

    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

    I'd reccomend a CD Omega, or some 3hp based driver. I've used both, and they both get pretty loud while still sounding good.

    yeah ... i'm not really looking at offer atm.. more like OBJECTIVE advice

    and i can't see how a btl would sound better to me than a Q

    i'm not putting any budget... but take in account the fact that i'm not bill gates

    I would say they're sql, but they can easily put up numbers if thats what you want them to do. I have mine in a 30 hz tuned box and they sound great.

    2 Mach 5 IXLs would do the job wonderfully.

    Re: So lost ..don't know what to get

    I went with a pair of 12Tc sounds tc-9

    I hope they sound at least as good as my fiQ and get as loud too. Epic-160 will give an objective answer
