    Memphis Subwoofers...Worth the hype??

    I live in Chattanooga, TN, and around here it seems that Memphis subwoofers (and amps to power them) are super popular. I guess they have lots of street cred for being some of the best kind in my city, but I'm just wondering if they're better than other stuff. Does anyone know how Memphis compares to Alpine or JL or know anything about them?

    What's your budget man? A single type r would be nice but its gonna be far from 'shaking the car next to you'

    Go with dc level, Fi , sundown, SSA and give the streets something new to talk about. Go with AQ ,Sundown, or Crescendo for power and you may even start a new trend in your area.

    believe it or not,that one sub can sound amazing,its not going to make you bleed or rattle your teeth out,but the one thing you must know is: its all in the build.if you build it crappy,its going to sound crappy

    It's a nice enough amp for $240 bucks. Plenty loud at 1 ohm.

    Re: Memphis Subwoofers...Worth the hype??

    Sounds like any good Memphis is out of my price range. Any thoughts on what CaddieJapan mentioned? - dc level, Fi , sundown, SSA. I like the idea of mixing it up and not having the same thing everyone else has.

    Re: Memphis Subwoofers...Worth the hype??

    I like the cm cast mojos. I also like the sound of the pr's. their coaxials aren't good at all, and better amps can be had for the price. That's Memphis car audio in a nutshell from my point of view.



    Things to look forward to:
    (2) 10" or 12" imperium audio designs subs
    set of PHD MF 6.5" comps
    Completely seal off and deaden my doors
    aquire a 2k amp
    aquire a 2 channel amp for front stage
