    American bass XFL 15 or Sundown SA 15??????????

    Looking to purchase either a xfl 15 or a sa 15. I have 2 locally for sale and I don know which one to buy. The American bass as a 3 inch coil as the sundown has a 2.5 inch coil and the American bass has a little bit bigger of a motor. I really don't know which one to choose. It will be ran on around 1000 - 1500 daily in a 3 cube box tuned to 34. Please help me decide and don't just say which sub, please give an explanation why. Thanks.

    They sound the same but you can give the American Bass XFL more power.

    Xfl. I have two 12s and if you tuned a little bit lower like 30hz they get nasty on the lows.

    Both great subs but for the long run on that much power, the xfl will probably be a better choice.

    148.1db on two XFL1544's on CLEAN power. I heard they can make more too - its all in the install man - thats the most important thing no matter which sub you choose

    Is one cheaper than the other? The two factors i would use are price and condition.
