    MB Quart Discus Sub?

    Wondering who here has experience with the Discus line of subs from MB Quart (specifically the DWI run). I'm trying to find a good and cheap Dual 2-ohm solution and might be able to strike a local deal for a NIB 10". Impressions would be greatly appreciated, especially regarding performance ported vs sealed and how well it might perform with a ported box like the one in my signature.

    I know Quart can be washy in quality, but know the Discus amps are a solid line...just hope the subs are, too.

    Talking about this sucker. Figured someone could benefit. Just locked down a 10W6 for 120 locally, so don't need to be looking at this.

    Something tells me the refurb will have passed through Boston's hands more recently than the new stock knowing Sonic.
