    Kicker CompVX 15, Soundstream Tarantula, or..

    I made a post the other day regarding a multiple sub setup in my Civic, and..
    Well, scratching that idea.

    I would have gone for an L7 15, but they like a 6ft + port box and it would be pretty sketch getting that
    In and out of my trunk.

    Now, I noticed the CompVX calls for a foot smaller box, which is doable, and handles 900 in a ported
    enclosure vs the L7's rated 750. Also, being as it has a higher sensitivity, I'm thinking it might be almost
    as loud. Ideas?

    I came across a few other "smaller enclosure" 15s in my quest for mad poundage.

    Thoughts on the Soundstream Tarantula 15? 1000w RMS like the CVX, and a little bit
    cheaper. Thoughts on that? Vs. The CVX?

    What about the MOFO 15? Any good?

    Any other woofer suggestions?

    No more than 300$ for the sub would be nice.

    1000-1500 RMS would be my range.

    Look for SPLaudio's custom subs. I'm telling you they will get lower and louder, for that price and power, better than anything you can buy.



    Current set up: Island bombed out 92 mazda 626. Stock rust bucket

    66 Pontiac GTO, modified stock radio, Crossfire CFA 302, Kicker KS6.2's in the front kicks, Crossfire CFA 452 for the 6x9's I need.

    This. Or Obsidian or Gcon... The choices are pretty much wide open at a 300 dollar price point. I would look in the classifieds. There's plenty of subs in there that fit what you're looking for. Also ace_800 had a good suggestion. Tell Corey what you want and he'll build a nice sub for 300 bucks. There's an SPL Audio sub in the classifieds right now that fits your criteria.

    What's the deal with the Audioque HDC3 18? If I went for the 15s in this, would I be best going copper or aluminum for the price?

    If I could make a box that would fit, I surrree would love to have an 18! A friend had to crappy Rockford 18s like 10 years ago and they
    straight pounded. Thoughts?
