    American Bass XFL or HD 12? - Daily - Or something else?

    I heard the HD's like to be tuned high? Looking for a daily sub. Something to put in a box @ 32-34 hz. Thoughts?

    Will be ran on an AQ2200D.

    So you think the XFL 12 would be better for me on my aq2200d? Will it take all the power without blowing? Will it go low?

    If you are curious that price is almost cost on that sub.



    As for what sub to get, to say that XXXX power is not enough for a sub is not exactly true. You just need to build around what you have and everything else will work just fine. Personally I would do an HD in 2-2.25ft3 net enclosure with a very generous amount of port area and tune it to work best for your goals and the application. That sub will play low just fine.

    It seems at that power level the HD would be louder. XFL would probably start running to thermal compression issues. I think they both like similar sized and tuned boxes though. I don't have direct experience; just guessing from what I've read around these parts. I do know one thing for sure: pro-rabbit knows what he's talking about when it comes to these subs.

    No doubt. You clip that amp into the HD and it will blow eventually.

    not even clipping it you can blow it. play alot of lower freqs alot see what happens to the spiders/triple joint. its a decent woofer and with a 1200aq you wont have a issue with it...
