    American Bass XFL 12", good buy?

    I'm going to be running an American Bass XFL 12". I haven't heard much of these subs. I couldn't find much on youtube. I was wondering if anyone had some actual input on this sub? Looking to buy one in the sub-200 dollar range, and this is what i've landed on based on some advice i've got on here. I'm going to be running it in a 32hz ported box on an AQ 1200D @ 1 Ohm.

    Does anyone have experience / input on this sub? Is it my best buy in the sub $200 range?

    I'm going to be using it as a daily sub.

    I was actually considering this route. Will it take ~2000w rms ? People say that it can, but is that pushing it too far?

    If you do it right and feed the sub clean power and right enclosure it will do great.
