    Obsidian Audio 15 D2 vs Skar VVX15 D2 vs SA-15 D2

    I have narrowed my search down to these 3 subs. Each will be in a custom ported box tuned to 33hz for a happy medium between SQ and SPL. Question is which one. Currently the Obsidian 15' is out of stock, so I don't know how much they are, but the Skar is well within my budget, as I can get one for $160. The Sundown Audio 15 is slightly outside of my budget at $230, but I could manage.

    I have an ASPM-1300 amp, which I plan to wire at 1 ohm, and have the gains almost all the way down, I can't stress my 80 amp 12v alt.

    Any other subs you guys are thinking of recommending? I'd would be preferable that I don't get any more expensive than the SA-15.

    Obsidian 15s are 158+ shipping. Well worth the money too! They wont be back in stock for about 90 days though. I have a lightly used D4 I may sell.. Pm me if you're interested.

    Obsidian, and gain is not a volume knob.

    Yea, I'm leaning towards either a single Obsidian 15 or 2 Skar IVX 12's So many options -_-

    And Mitch86, I might take you up on your offer. I'll let you know.

    Creating three threads in two hours asking the exact same thing with different wording? Sure, if you're retarded.

    It's just common sense. You've asked the same question in each thread. I just don't know why you can't post in the threads you've already created. I agree, go with the Obsidian if you're willing to wait, or buy Mitch's.

    Not to thread jack but where can you get a SKAR VVX-15 for 160$? Or is it used or something

    Skar VVX 15s are sold out until the end of March anyway.

    But from what people have told me, if you order directly from Skar, you can get the subs cheaper than listed price.

    Subs - None
