    Icon32 Can you still buy XBL^2 subs new?

    It's been a while since I've really been in the forums. I was around when ED first came out with their flatcones A's, Adire was still making the Brahma's and the RE XXX was the ****, before they got sold to US amps. However Adire is now out of buisness and I'm pretty sure the new RE doesn't use XBL^2 in their subs any more. So my question is, where do I buy a XBL^2 sub brand new? I'm going in a whole new direction now, looking for a more SQ based system and would really like an XBL^2 sub, but if I can't find it I'll have to find something else.

    My choices for subs right now are the following if I can't get what I really want:
    ID Max 12"
    IDQ 12"
    TC Sounds LMS-R 12"
    Soundsplinter RL-S 12" (probably not this sub as it's single 4 ohm only)

    Whatever sub I get will be in a sealed enclosure. So where can I find a XBL^2 sub brand new, and if I can't what are you're guys experience with the above subs when it comes to SQ?

    Thanks

    They are very hard to find new.
    I have a 2005 XXX with a ti basket but it needs a recone.

    Hmmm do you know if they offer anything bigger than a 10"? I can't see anything on their site but maybe you guys know of a different link?

    all I see is that one 10'' and to be honest I'm not impressed. They used to have more.

    Yeah I'm not too impressed with it either. Guess I'll just stick with the TC Sounds LMS-R

    eew. You can buy a used motor and have it rebuilt to factory or better specs.

    And soundsplinter isn't around anymore either, so gotta try and find them used (which can be hard)

    I might have to do that but I wanted to invert my sub, hence the reason for wanting a new one that doesn't have any scratches or damage to the motor.

    Re: Can you still buy XBL^2 subs new?

    Creative Sounds used to have a sdx15. It was a pretty good sub, I though they still offered it, IDK. Other than that, no there are no XBL^2 subs to get new... LMS-R uses a different tech to get a flat BL, and they are somewhat pricey, but still good subs.

    that might be hard to find. The xxx and brahma have been out of production for a while now. The brahma is at least painted so you can refurb it, but again hard to find.

    Re: Can you still buy XBL^2 subs new?

    Don't think the RL-P is XBL^2. Ascendant audio's avalanche is XBL^2 but they are gone as well. I do have an avalanche motor I am not using if you wanna buy it. I also have 12,15, and 18 inch baskets. Fi car audio is Ascendant audio and they still sell recones for the avalanche.

    Want an SPL meter for a lot less than the cost of a Termlab, but just as accurate and has more features and support? PM me.
