Ive looked at the Obsidian audio subs before and the only thing that got me..was that the OA 12 box i have would be 1cu ft bigger than recommended. and idk if this makes too much of a diff to ear..but the sensitivity is a lil lower than the CVX. I heard Xmax matters in Sealed enclosures and sensitivity matters in vented enclosures...correct me if they are wrong

    also it seems the Obsidian audio is the most wallet friendly. always a plus.

    Why is it no one would go with the Audiopipes? ive looked at specs and they got me hooked...plus i can get one for 128 a TXXBF12 free shipping. thats not a bad price but seems its a bad sub?? idk i just need a major overhaul of the sub i have now. id hate to get something that is marginally close or sounds exactly the same as my CVX in terms of loudness in the same box
    VVX subs are really designed around those who want that extra deep bass. It should kill anything in the 20-40hz in the right box. You'll sacrifice some >50hz output though. I've heard some negative things about customer service, but I don't know how legitimate the complaints are. There's always two sides to a story.

    Re: Buying a New sub, whats louder than CVX?

    so basically by switching to a diff sub only i wont see a big gain in loudness with everything else being the same? thats a huge bummer. i heard the cvx wasnt all that great compared to other subs. at that price. so this is my question

    If a kicker comp had 500w of power in a 3 cu ft box...and then you switched the subs out to a SSA GCON in the same box and the same power..the loudness wont change much? if thats the case..then i didnt know the enclosure made up THAT much of the loudness...i knew it was at least 75% but thats crazy to me

    Should be fine on that. You said the box is tuned to 34hz?

    You'll probably lose some output above 50hz in comparison to your Kicker, but it should be quite a bit louder below 40hz.

    Hopefully closer to 30. 35 won't be bad, but based on you're saying, 30 would be better for you. I'm assuming nobody has any serious objections to my recommendation, because everyone else stopped commenting. lol

    this is the best way for me to explain it to you...if you ever get the chance... listen to this song by drake its called "The motto" my sub in that box doesnt even hit the first high notes...but those low bass notes afterwards it hits loud as heck!!

    I told you in the other thread. 1500 watt amps almost clamp 1000 watts. A lot of stuff dont work out the box. quality control is non excistant. People have gotten subs without the surrounds glued

    Your crossover should not be at 50 hx, way to low.

    80 hz is much better.
