    Pair of 12s that are loud and low

    Just looking around for a pair of 12s that will be on 3500 watts that love lows. I dont care about dB numbers, just want some lows with authority in them.

    I've heard a pair of DADs go **** low, but not enough power for me.

    Right now im looking at two Orion HCCA 12.4s; i will be underpowering them for longitivity sake.

    So lets place my budget for brand new pair of 12s @ $1000

    And of course, two D4s for a final impedence of 1ohm



    ** NEW VEHICLE AND BUILD ** 2003 Jeep Liberty Sport
    2x SPLAudio DAD BD 12s
    2x SK-1500.1s
    Box 5 cubes @ 29hz
    XS Power D3100 & D2400
    Tenney 270A
    4x PowerBass 3xl 6.5s
    Clarion CZ702

    Honestly any 12s you get from a reputable company that will handle 3500 watts will hit low notes if you put it in a low tuned box.

    This question has been asked so much this past week



    Headunit - Pioneer DEH-P8300UB
    Subs - None
    Sub Amp - 2x Crescendo 3kwp
    Front Stage - Polk Audio db651 Coaxial
    Front Amp - None

    What is considered reputable changes per person. Just wondering what kind of feedback i got on my choice. I'm really liking Orion lately for some odd reason.

    I won't be going Fi again, Skar ZVX subs appear to like higher notes judging by just Fs alone, Looking into DC now, probably XLs. Not a big fan of sundown subs, and i havent gotten to SSA yet.
