    American Bass

    Looking for opinions... Would you rather have two sundown nightshade 12's or two American bass HD 15's? Wondering what would be louder and hold up longer?

    which will be louder depends on the enclosure. I'd rather have the ns 12's.

    If I had my choice, just due to customer service experience, I would go with American Bass. Customer service is top notch

    We sell American Bass, I love their products. Very good customer service like mentioned and I would much rather have 2 15's than 2 12's, cone area is KING!

    Re: American Bass

    Like av83 said, your enclosure is going to be a HUGE factor. Besides that, you have to look at the cone area of the two, in which case the 15s are going to win.

    Re: American Bass

    15s are gonna win due to pure cone area if enclosure is good and has enuff room.
    american bass subs are all knock off's with no originals.

    Re: American Bass

    price of american bass subs are great. If you cannot find a good price on the HD, look at the AQ HDC3s, same sub priced great as well.

    Want an SPL meter for a lot less than the cost of a Termlab, but just as accurate and has more features and support? PM me.
