    Icon32 SQ/SQL recommendations on 1500-2000 watts tops

    Doing a project on my Nissan Versa, going more SQ than anything. I have been out of the game for a good 5 years now. What models should I be looking at for loud SQ/SQL subs? As stated, probably going to run 1500w, no more than 2000w. I'm thinking one 12" or two 10"s is really all I'll be able to squeeze in there when considering box size and all.

    Don't forget Dayton subs. Handle a bit lower, but good subs.

    Re: SQ/SQL recommendations on 1500-2500 watts.

    Id suggest a pair of Dayton HO or IDMAX at that power. Hell, a pair of IDMAX 10s would get PLENTY loud on about 500W each, but give them 1K each in a ported enclosure and you pretty much have the textbook definition of SQL.

They were loud as hell and held up well, I know Fi is a solid brand, no experience with the Q however - will check into them.

    What's become of the RE MX and XXX drivers?

    Your mor looking for SQL since SQ wouldnt need anymore then 1000 at most... I honestly wasnt terribly impressed with the Xcon and was happier with the Q if you go that route... The newer RE stuff isnt worth the price but the new XXX's arent bad if you can get them cheaper

    I have never heard of of the Dayton stuff in a car audio application. I helped a buddy built a few lines and subs for his home theater with Dayton's and they were great. I'd love to hear these in person someday.

    I wish I could find someone close with a good Dayton setup.

    Yea, I'd say I'm about 65/35 on SQL/SQ. It's hard to completely let my SPL days go

    As in Class A/B. Versus Class D. Honestly, I've yet to see where Class A/B can trump a properly-made Class D of similar specs, so take it with a grain of salt.

    WOW , I was like, "A/B? the eff, oh maybe American Bass, been reading a lot of stuff on them lately while searching" lol.

    The last A/B I had was a Hifonics something or nothing that I used to run a SoundSplinter 12" in my work truck. It was iight.

    Yea, I think I'll end up with a nice, clean D class. Whatever I end up doing, I want to make sure it's efficient, it's in a Versa and all. Outside of a big 3, new Deka battery under the hood and a battery in the hatch, I don't really want to overhaul anything else with the electrical.

    Main reason I am going in hat 1500-2k max range. I figure, I should be able to find something very nice in that 750-1200 range for sure, especially with the proper enclosure and tuning.

    IA Flatlyne, then? Good enough for @ge_off_me ; to use in competition and runs off 750RMS. I might be tempted to play around with the 18" version of it on a Tahoe build in a couple years. Either that or 4 Dayton HO 8"s on about 300RMS each
