    for the price of that, and comparing the subs, he might as well spend a little more and get a lvl 3. Both should be decent for SQL.
    for SQ, the dayton or tc still kill it.

    Re: SSA DCON vs Dayton HO vs DC lvl 3

    well i can get a lvl 3 for 200, the tc is 193.....

    Local guy does my boxes, so i guess the only remaining question i have is how big a difference in output is the DC gunna give me vs the TC. Theres only a $7 difference lol

    Although with my rms my FR is putting out, i think the TC will do better. Since im sure its underrated, i dont think my 600 @ 4 will be as much as the DC wants. Although im not seeing steady box sizes to use. Anyone got an idea?

    IIRC, the lvl 3 is rated at 600rms. I think its a good match to your amp. As far as both sealed I'm not sure which will get louder....but ported, Id go with the DC hands down

    Re: SSA DCON vs Dayton HO vs DC lvl 3

    Well i really want to go sealed just for peace of mind(i wanted sealed on my JBL, didnt plan on changing subs so soon lol but im not happy with the SQ)

    Plus theres more support with the DC subs, several reps here who know box sizes ect.... If i can find someone will to sell a new one for 180 ill snatch it, gotta wait on this guy to get paid before he can pay me though lol

    Ive got about 1.5cu of space to work with, box will be built for sub after purchase. buget is 100-200max

    Looking for a sub that does well with SQ, while still gettin decently loud. My jbl ported didnt have a very large freq band it picked up(anything kinda high sounded bad). Like to hear a larger range of notes hit hard.

    SSA DCON- 125, wont have to push my amp hard
    Dayton HO- 150 at partexpress, have had ppl recommend them to me for SQ W/ some decimals
    DC lvl 3- These do well sealed correct? i think a dc sales quoted me 200shipped
    Also, is the AQ SDC2.5 anything special sealed?

    Re: SSA DCON vs Dayton HO vs DC lvl 3

    The funny thing about this topic is the real issue was not addressed, people are more worried about suggesting which sub they think is better. Where the issue is the OP is not happy about port noise. So why people are not saying, hey let's look at the box design to correct that issue first is confusing to me.

    Becuase i had many people tell me not to do port since my head is 12ins away from the box, loads of single cab pickup drivers tell me port noise drove them crazy too. PLus my gf cant even hear it >.> its just a slight "flap" but its driving me insane. So im actually looking for a good sealed 12, not a new box. A local is suppose to be buying if for 300(box and sub), wouldnt u just redo it all? hahahha Plus ide really like punchyer, more defined bass. the JBL specs's strongly support a ported enclosure, or least thats what i was told. By more then one person, including my builder and DonH from these forms

    What I am getting at, is in a proper enclosure designed for the specific sub woofer and it's intended use, you really should not have any port noise at all.
