    another vs. thread between Dcon vs. sundown e series vs. obsidian

    Got ~550watts@2ohms. Just wanting to one sub setup. One 10" ported or a 15" sealed. Which of these subs and what size would give me more output? I like the lows also!

    Can't speak as to which sub to choose but if you have three cubes to work with, why not go with a single 12" ported? I tend to prefer ported vs. sealed, mainly because I'm used to the sound and they're more efficient off less power.

    i would say the dcon but you would have to be very carefull with setting gains, The obsidian is your best choice, 3 cubes should be fine sealed

    Really looking to go sealed this time. I know a properly tuned box can sound as good as sealed and get as low but imo, sealed lows just does it for me man!

    For sure I prefer the Dcon. Just set gains properly and build a great box, win.

    been looking/hearing about BA lately. Have also been eyeing the G1 Boston sub in the prefab box that Sonic has on sale.

    The G3 is on Sonic as well for 150 shipped. Excellent subs...

    edit* Nevermind. Sonic says they're discontinued. Going to be a lot of this with BA. If I had some monies I'd stock up on some stuff.
