I'll never get to hear either of those subs prior to purchasing one of them, so I need some advice / opinions on which to choose.
My power source at the moment as a Phoenix Gold X600.1 that puts out about 700 rms @ 1-4 ohms, according to the birthsheet.
Either sub would be going in a custom made sealed box -- no larger than 2.5 cubes though.
I'll have the sub crossed-over @ ~70hz.
Btw, the DC sub's coils would be used in parallel for a 1 ohm load.
The AV sub would have dual 4 ohm coils,wired in parallel for a 2 ohm load (Since I have a choice with the AV sub I wanted a higher impedance, because my amp will still put out the same power, and I'm assuming it'll put less strain on the amp as well.)
Here are the specs for each sub, in case those are relevant to your suggestion:
Vd p-p: 3.67L
Re: 1.6ohm (parallel)
Le: .38mH (parallel or series?)
Bl: 11.0Tm (parallel)
DC Audio LevelFour 15
Cms: 1.83e-04 m/N
Re: 0.9ohm (parallel)
Le: 1.0mH (parallel)
Bl: 8.07 (parallel)
Btw, I dunno how the DC sub is listed as having the same cone area as the AV. The surround on the DC looks wider to me. But oh well.
All advice / suggestion / comments will be appreciated. Thanx
