    Does RD really still exist? Also are those your only choices? Either way go XL

    DC > RD in every department including a lower failure rate and a less shady owner.

    FYI , RD is under new ownership. that douche doesn't own RD anymore. As far as failure rate , idk , i never had a problem with my sonance. But i know for a fact that customer service is terrible at RD. I personally would go DC.

    Theyve had "new" ownership for the last few years. In the end it was always the same douche bag running the show.

    well thats good to know haha. RD audio does seem a little bit sketchy, havent heard much about them and by looking at their stuff, their subs dont look half bad.

    Do you think that the XL can take 2500 watts daily? or is that pushing it...?

    I had my Level 4 on 1400@1 and its only rated for 1000wrms. Id say you could probably get away with 2000wrms if you tune it right and its in the right enclosure. Id just dial the map back a little and tune with a DMM to compensate for the differences.
