    ab hd will get the loudest but wont get low, the ab xfl you will blow with 2000rms, and the fi q will get loud, not quite as loud as the hd but a better built american built sub with hand machined motor and loves the lows and sounds great for something that can get crazy loud. many people have the old fi q's, fi totally redid all their subs and basically beefed them all up and introduced the fi x's. a beefed up fi q is basically a

    another thing you can do is buy a really nice motor

    TC Sounds TC9 - Car Audio Classifieds
    (2) level 4 m1 12s (motors/baskets/gaskets) - Car Audio Classifieds

    is buy a nice motor and have someone like @SPLaudio ; build you a hand made custom subwoofer for exactly what you want. im a big fan of the tc9 motor they get notoriously low and i have had splaudio build me some nice as subs out of tc9 motors and they wanged and sounded amazing and destroyed my car with the lows.




    a 15 spl built me out of a old school hcca motor.

    You think the Fi Q will do the best in a 32-34ish hz tuned box? I think I might go with this.

    Thank you. Would you have any input on the BL line? They seem to be around the same price.

    Okay yeah, that's what I figured lol. I mean, I want to slam the 35hz-ish notes. Fi Q will be good to me for this? And it will take all of the AQ2200?

    ^ thanx for the props.

    the thing with a custom sub is i can build it for ur application. most subs today are made to handle power and not be eff and make good use of said power. reason being power is soooo cheap these days they are scared not to build and under rate for warrenty sake...
