Why the metal cone? I went to a friends shop to hear his 2 Alumapro alchemy's, each sub had 1cu. ft each. connected to a Memphis 1000D. It sounded great with rap, hit low and hard. SQ was great, but when it came down to fast pace music, these subs just couldnt keep up, is it the metal cone, may it be too heavy? What is crazy about this sub is that he connected it to a xtant2200ix (400watts) and they still rocked. But maaaan did these subs pound, i think its time to put my 12w3's at rest. (maybe in 2-3 months, im broke!) If i do get ONE, is it possible to put it in .85cu ft.? what amp? ... zane..audiolife...suggestions?
p.s., this is for future reference, considering my budget and bills, its not gonna be a good 2-4 months till i get this puppy, or puppies if the money lets me!
