    SQ Sub route need some advice!!

    So im finally looking to get some sq subs and get rid of my ssa dcon, shes a beast but im in the trying mood. Im looking to do 2 10's in a sealed box and i have some ideas but would like some input on what to do and what some good sq subs would be for this setup.
    Right now i am looking at two different options;
    2 Dayton Audio Ho 10's
    2 OZ matrix elites 10's D2

    How are these options and what other routes should i think about, i am willing to put about $300 into the subs combined and will need to buy a new amp for the subs too so those reccomendations would be much welcomed too! Thanks for looking!

    Re: SQ Sub route need some advice!!

    the oz woofers are very nice and grimy has some for sale here,dont know much about the dayton's but alot of guys here like them.as for amp really depends on power and budget.the dc amps are 90% efficient so they would be a great choice if you want big power.if you are looking for smaller power , lets say 1000 watts or less ,look at arc ,zapco ,or audison and even zed

    Re: SQ Sub route need some advice!!

    I have been trying to decide on a single 12" SQ / SQL sub, myself.
    A few of the ones I have been considering, that may be of some assistance to you:

    JL Audio W3
    RE ***
    DC Level3
    DD1510a
    Skar VVX10
    Dayton RSS265 HO

    All are reasonably good for use in sealed enclosure, tho the EBP on the Dayton is notably higher than any of the others.

    HTH

    do the HO's.
    There is so much more to sq then just sounding good. The ho excels at all of them.

    They don't localize easy. They blend well, and they don't distort very easy. I have pushed mine well into clipping and still didn't sound as bad as some spl subs I've owned.

    Daytons are very nice SQ wise. Highly recommended. Mine are ported on about 400 rms each. Tuned to 30hz and they get plenty loud while still having amazing SQ.

    How are the tc sounds epics? What's the difference between the Dayton hf and ho line besides rms?

    the hf are less sensitive, and need larger enclosures. The tc sound good but not as good as the daytons at sq
