So currently I have a JL 10W7 in the HO box that I've had for about 4 years now and it's really not hitting like it used to. When I first got it, it was LOUD and it would flex stuff like crazy inside and out of the car. The last couple years though it has become quite a bit less impressive, still gets fairly loud but doesn't flex anything around anymore (besides the headliner a bit lol) and the SQ has gone to hell and doesn't sound good with rock/metal music at all.
So I'm here looking for recommendations for the best new subwoofer setup to fit my needs. I enjoy a lot of SPL but I also want a sub that will hit really HARD and accurately with rock/metal music. The only subs I have really looked at so far is a pair of Sundown Audio SA-8v2's as from what I have seen they can get pretty **** loud and still have excellent SQ. But all I've seen in youtube videos for almost any sub is people playing bass tracks or rap which wont showcase a subs SQ properly so can't tell what they would sound like with other types of music.
I am running an Audison LrX 5.1k rated at 1160W (underrated) on the sub channel. So any recommendations for a dual 8/10/12 inch sub setup that would absolutely KILL my 10W7 in every aspect would be awesome.
Also if anyone has more experience with the SA-8v2's I would really like to know if they're as good as they say and if 2 of them in a good ported box would be better than my 10W7 or not?
Thanks in advance for taking the time to help me. I really wanna upgrade my system but don't wanna get some subs and end up being disappointed with them. Also money is a factor. One of the reasons I was looking at the SA-8's was because they're only $180 a piece.
