    Buying a New sub, whats louder than CVX?

    Plenty of these threads have been done but ive done more searching and researching on different subs and EVERYONE has their opinion. All ive ever owned was kicker and apparently they arent great..lol I currently have a CVX 12 and am looking to upgrade to a better 12 or 15 for less than $200. (I AM NOT LOOKING FOR ANY SQ..JUST PURE TRUNK RATTLING LOW BASS 35-30HZ.

    These are the subs ive been recommended multiple times:

    SSA GCON 12
    Obsidian Audio 12/15
    SSA DCON 12/15
    Sundown E 12
    Audiopipe TXXBF 12/15
    Audiopipe TXXSPL 12/15
    Sundown SA 12/15

    I have absolutely no idea which sub to get. What im looking for is again...pure loudness at low bass freq. Power im working with is ~750w (Kicker KX600.1). no power upgrades anytime soon. and 3cu ft enclosure for 12" at around 34hz or so. (the low notes in the song "The Motto"..i wont hit the high notes..lol) Have approximately 16 cu ft of trunk space to work with...i was also recommended RE audio but plenty said their new stuff *****...also the reason my budget is 200 is because i can snag a CVX 12" for 149 brand new at a nearby shop plus my experience with them shows they can rattle a trunk like nobodys business and thats what i want. Opinions would be appreciated. Just no kicker bashing and no SA nuthugging. Only factual details....thx

    P.S. will be purchasing in the next 2 days

    If you want really good bass in that frequency range than you want a sql driver not spl. I would look into the used section for some quality equipment. Out of your list I would go with Obsidian or SSA Gcon.

    ps a 15 is going to be louder and it looks like you have room for it

    Skar VVX would do well for you. I'd second the Obsidian as well. Hit up @TeamPSI or go to PSI Car Audio | Subwoofers in all colors and flavors!. I'm sure he could build a pair of Platform 1's specific to your application. That's what I would do. Some of the best subs I've heard for the money.

    And yeah i figured that...not going for SPL because they said normally u tune higher with ported enclosure..and thats a no go for me..nothing higher than 35. I dont need SPL i just want loud to the ear. Seems like Gcon and OA are the winners so far. They WILL be louder than a CVX correct? just pure louder

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

    SSA Gcons are up to 239..thats def out of budget...havent found a XFL price yet and the skar VVX for some reason doesnt excite me..idk doesnt look like a car rattling sub. looks a lil too SQ friendly...idk might just be me. 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

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

    Keeping the same box and same power, I doubt you will see a huge gain by just switching to a different sub. It is possible, but not likely. Also manufacturers sensitivity ratings are basically useless, as they are tested @ frequency the sub will never play.
