    AQ 18 or FI or ?

    Looking to replace my 12's with one 18". Need it to be D1 coils.

    Budget around 300. Currently stuck on the HDC3 18".

    Would an FI BL or Q be a better sub?

    Any other options in my price range I should know about?

    Thanks!

    Goal? Subs listed are fairly different from one another.

    Re: AQ 18 or FI or ?

    SQL I would say? Not looking for all output with no sq. I think the BL is more SPL vs SQ?

    I don't know what the AQ is designed for. For some reason I am thinking the AQ is more musical than the FI's?

    Are there any DC's in my price range or are they all way overpriced? Need to take 1200 RMS comfortably.

    The Q would be the most SQ oriented while still getting loud. I'd put my money there. I'm not farmilar with DC pricing so I can't help you there.

    You should be able to get a lvl4 18 for that cost maybe don't quote me. Dc subs are sq oriented but they get loud

    Is the HDC3 a good sub compared to the FI or DC?

    They are on sale and I can get the 18" for 262 shipped.

    The IA Death Penalty is on sale for 341 right now. That is a little bit out of my price range. I am really trying to stay around 300 bucks for this.

    I have a feeling the DC Audio is going to be well over 300 bucks.

    Well doing some reading online and the Aq seems to be a very good sub. People compare them to the DC Lvl 4's. Wondering about FI now.

    I know this is going to sound very stupid, but honestly I cannot stand the way the IA's look. I don't like the dust cap. I know it is not a good way to justify not getting a sub, but I don't like it.
