    Icon32 Rockford HX2 12's > or < Eclipse Aluminum 12's

    I would like to know some opinion's on S.Q. & SPL for each of these subs from some people that have some exsperience with them. Is one that much better then the other? Or are they fairly close in comparison? I have the memphis 16-ST1000D right now & would like to know if it will push the aluminums.
    Would the 1100 watts rms be enough power for them?
    I have 2 HX2's right now that I am happy with BUT I keep getting told the eclipse subs are ALOT better . I would like to try some but want opinions from people that have had or have some.

    Any opinions would be greatly appreciated.

    The Alum are great subs from what I hear and I most likely plan on buying some of the subs, so as for the comparison I say the Alum. wins SQ hands down but the HX2's are somewhat more louder but I say that the Alums are great!! as for your amp its WAY MORE THAN ENOUGH to push the Alums. since they are rated at 500 WRMS and 1000 Max, but what is the ohm rating for that 1100watts?

    Oh yeah and I forgot to say that the Alum come in 4ohm SVC and DVC so it only can be wired to 2 ohms in parallel for the DVC.

    To get the 1100 watts it has to be 1Ohm which means I would have to run the 4ohm DVC's

    At 2ohms it's 600 watts RMS which is not enough. I am currently running 2 HX2 4 ohm DVC's in parallel to get the 1100 watts.

    This is the wiring wizard I used to confirm the ohm load.

    I would go with either two punch hx2's or one power hx2. If the box is at least 3 cubic feet, then a power hx2 would sound beautifuly low. Just make sure you have an amp that can handle a 1 Ohm load, cause the power hx2's are 2 Ohm DVC's. I hope that helped.

    I have dealt with both plenty,

    Eclipse on this one is the winner
