As far as being better than DC I have no dout that any RD sub would smash any comparable DC sub. Joel has made every effort to make right what Steve Miller has done to RD Audio. Give em a call and speak to Joel or Ty super good guys.
    ty is working there now? lol..

    There is sarcasm in that question as it is a tired and ultimately worthless argument to the masses. It is a tired tactic a company can flood the scene by giving away a ton of free or uber cheap product, then suddenly their product is so much better then everyone else's.
    thats exactly what im saying.. i know guys that have been doing it for 20 years and test 4-5 hours a night after work and 12+ hours every weekend.. believe me.. its no coincidence the big boys in the sport run rd/atomic .. more of a sign you should be looking at...

    theres a reason DD only rates their subs for a couple k

    no need to make arguments everyone has thioer brands they like... but if you like DC bring it to the lanes and i promise you an RD setup will walk that as s

    Why would you think thicker is better? That is a flawed since of logic.

    What about all the 'big boy's' that run DD, IA, Sundown, etc. etc. etc. It should mean nothing to the masses, they are not doing loads of testing to find out what is best for their install. An increase of .3 in a certain SPL competition application holds zero water (in common sense) to the countless "ground pounder" types that just care about loud to the ear and bouncing their cell phone on their roof. Meaning that just because a certain driver that is a little louder, in a certain competition association in very specific SPL application, it does not make it a better driver for the every day average customer.

    It is like Bentley touting their race car program, it means nothing in actual application in the real world as none of their customers are driving any where near close to those limitations.

    Re: RD audio vs. DC audio

    I think of all the subs I own my Rd alpha is noticeably better made. Iv beat the heck out of it on 2k and it takes it like a champ. However when I had my audiopipe it got hot just like any other sub would. I think that amp was **** lol Theres a major problem when it heats up an hcca @ a 4 ohm load



    system 1:
    Car:04 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited
    Sub: Tc Sounds 3000 quad 15
    Amp: Audio Pipe Ap1500.1
    Head unit: Eclipse AVN7000
    Big 3: 1/0
    System 2:
    Car: Gf's Pontiac G6 GT
    Sub: Orion HCCA 12.4
    Amp: Audio Pipe Ap3000d

    i would put sundown right up ther with RD especially amps.. but DD/aq or DC.. your dreaming.. and throw all the specific setup out of it.. run a dc or dd sub ion a spec box and an rd sub in spec box to spec power and see what comes out on top.. and if a guy knows one is louder by .3 .. whether hes going to competition or not hes going to buy it sop he can say well mines better then this brand and this brand by .3 blah blah.. just the way it is.. Like i have said if hes looking for sq or some good sounding sub i doubt he would be looking at a lvl 4.. so obviously he just wants to be loud and i told him the loudest line of subs... anyone who competes on a regular basis knows this.. ask pro rabbit.. i know he likes the DD but whats winning in the lanes right now on a very consistent basis??? RD

    If they were the same they would be identical. They are not. They are similar.

    Sometimes you talk out of your ass. The Level 4 is a great SQ woofer if done properly. They were on par with the Image Dynamics ID series. Im sure you dont know SQ if it hits you in the face though.

    Re: RD audio vs. DC audio

    I used to be a rep/graphic design artist for RD... when evan from havok audio was also a rep, he and steve are/were both idiots.

    They still used a ton of my site design/graphics on most of their stuff and all the sigs I made as well.
    Hell as far as I know they still use the logo on the boxes if they are truly still around.

    Needless to say, I wouldn't touch RD with an infinity foot pole.
    Shits' wrecked thanks to steve... sorry to whomever bought that pos from a pos.

    The DD coil will take more power and for longer periods then the RD...


    I have been around long enough to see this situation many times.

    DD has been the sub of choice for way to long. There are always "other" products that show up from time to time. One thing has stayed the same though. DD always sticks around others do not.

    And that is the stupidity of it all, it is not better as it is not their application. Side note, I have been a spectator at 3 shows in my area this year, did not see a single RD. Saw plenty of DD, Fi, and T3.

    Re: RD audio vs. DC audio

    wow...i created one hell of a discussion here haha. But for those who were asking, at the time I wanted to know which one of those two specific subs are better over all( SPL wise and somewhat SQ, whatever little amount of SQ they have...). But now out of curiosity..... Im tryin to find the real winner between these two companies, product wise and customer service. Also, how does RD compare to other "top dog" company's???

    you've already gotten this answer... read people's posts and base an opinion off of it from that. I was a sales rep for RD and I wouldn't touch their products as I said. my 2 cents.


    go from there.
