    Sundown SA 12 Vs. Pioneer TS-W3002D4

    Which sub do you think is better? Right now I have the pioneer but I was thinking of selling it and getting a Sundown. Do you think it's worth it? Will it be an overall better sub? Louder, less distortion etc.

    I'm running a kicker 11IX1000.1 amp

    With that amp and that right box there wouldn't be any comparison. Sundown.

    So you would say its worth selling and picking up the sundown? I just worry because it says it only handles 600rms. I know everyone says you can put at least a 1000 on it, but it still worries me.

    I wouldn't worry about. People put more than 1000 on the SA's with the proper electrical. I'm not a Sundown nuthugger or a Pioneer hater. Just have seen both in action and it's not even a contest.

    Or just set the gain at 800? Either way it will be a lot louder with the sundown in the right bOx

    Sell that prefab box and the pioneer sub and get yourself a custom built enclosure and get the sundown. I used to have a pioneer w3002, and when i did a sub swap to an audioque hdc3 a while back, I gained a good 3 dbs. lol

    You need to either build one or have a vendor build one for your sub...

    Hmm. Never thought of building my own box. How would I tune it and everything? Any site I can just buy a box already done?

    There are many vendors on here that can either design or build you a box
