    which sub will be the loudest?

    i've got 5.3 cu.ft box with two 6" ports (6" X 25.5") and i can make them bigger.
    with 1600 RMS amp

    which sub will be the loudest?
    Sundown Audio Z v3 15"
    SSA XCON 15"
    Death Penalty Incriminator Audio 15"
    DC Level 4 15"
    (or any other sub up to 450$, 15" only!)

    i know you said 15" only but that box is kinda big you would be better off with a 18". you dont want more than 3.5net per 15"...

    Re: which sub will be the loudest?

    i cant place 18" in my trunk, i have a small car, 15" is my max, and the box that i have, it takes ALL my trunk
    and its not a problem to make a smaller box.
    just need to choose the sub first!


    this is how my car looks like.

    this is my box.

    there's a pic of my box, the sub will be facing up
    cant put it on the outside wall of the box, it will hit the trunk door while playing!
    so 18" is not an option

    Personally out of that list I would put them in this order.

    SSA
    Sundown
    IA
    DC

    I would rebuild the enclosure to work with what ever you end up purchasing though. Altering the volume and port area to allow what ever you purchase to be used to it's fullest potential with in the limits of what you have and your goals.

    I don't think 5 cube is too big for a single 15 on 1500W. All those you listed are pretty comparable. Go with what you like the looks of or which company offers you the best customer service.
