The hifonics brz15 looks promising, and maybe the sundown e15. Any suggestions? I know I can't get anything awesome with such a low budget, but I know I can get something a little better than a cheapo boss or pyle sub.

    All input appreciated.

    The obsidians look pretty nice, are they a branch of sundown? Would you go with the OA 15 or e15?

    Obsidians are very nice subs for the money.

    I would deff do an OA 15 over the E15.

    Would definitely go with the OA15 over the e15. Those obsidians are d*mn near bulletproof. No, they are there own company.

    Surprised none of you people thought to buy used for someone on a budget...

    Dude, get the SA 15. You can pick one up on here or CACO used for 150 shipped all day.. If you want a pair of subs, go with what @audiobaun ; recommended

    As much as used CAN be a good deal... I don't trust people to package stuff very well and have it arrive in very good condition. This coupled with how much it costs an individual to ship vs what a larger company that ships 100's to 1000's units a day. Jim Walter and crew over at Alpine did a great job with those new SWS 15's. Sealed or Ported specs are very respectable-- You don't have to sacrifice much room. I know some people here would rather drive a 1 seater, but eventually this will matter.

    No... For one. Most everyone here, who's been here a little while has a general idea of how to ship a sub, if you're worried then spend 5 bucks extra and get insurance so that everything is taken care of anyways. 2nd of all you can get cheap *** shipping from @Boomsday ; if he has the time and is willing to help, you shipping cost for the subs ill basically be cut in half, and third of all, no sub that alpine makes, not even the type x is even comparable to the SA-15. It'll stomp all over any alpine sub all day long. I've had a few alpine subs, and I have SA8s now. Hell.. The 8s get way louder than the type E's, R's, and type X's ever did, and the alpine subs had more power too. OP you will want to go ported for sure. You have a sub for a reason, sealed is a waste of time 90% of the time unless you're solely dedicated to pure sq.

    Fair enough... Everyones experience may vary. I have had my fair share of bad experiences here. Never a problem buying from responsible adults elsewhere. Have you ever heard of the term-- The High Cost of Saving Money? You might want to remember that one. It will ring more true the older you get. As for subs... surely you must be talking one note wonder and NOTHING SQ related. I would like to hear your thoughts on things like shorting rings and what purpose they serve. I would also like to know your thoughts on JBL's DDD drive. I am not going to argue with you... It would be pointless. Good day.

    If you only buy from trusted, experienced members you will greatly reduce your chances of a bad experience, that's common sense..

    The SA line is a good mix of a SQ and SPL sub actually. It does get pretty loud for what it is, yet it is FAR from a one hit wonder sub, it's very versatile. I have 4 of the SA-8" version and I love them. No ones trying to argue buddy I was merely stating a suggestion..

    And as to JBL's DDD Drive, I've never heard of it, and I have no experience personally with the sub so I don't want to make a comment on it without having previous experience with it.
