So I've been reading through the forums, but decided to just open up a thread. I was set on getting a dcon, but I've never made a box before and think I should go sealed instead of ported. I've read that these subs aren't too great in sealed boxes. I don't have the proper experience or time to learn how to properly build one.
So what else is out there. I'm looking for a daily driver, probably 50-50 sq spl. I want something that can get deep. I've seen other threads recommending subs in this similar range, but they are like infinities and memphis. I have nothing against these brands, but after buying a internet direct sub for my cousin's home theatre I'm very much sold on going underground brand vs mainstream, I think the bang for buck is way better.
I'm open to all suggestions, I'm looking for a 12" that stays clean but can get low. The 400 watts is at 4ohms. I have alpine type r's as components, if that makes any difference. Budget is $150-$200. Thanks.
