    Favorites and least favorites.

    I'm sure this thread has been done before, but I'm a noob and want to start an updated one. So what is everyone's favorite subwoofer they have owned or heard? Not necessarily the loudest or cleanest, just one that you fondly remember. My favorite would probably be my brothers Ascendant Audio Mayhem 15. And what is everyone's least favorite they have heard/owned? For this mine would have to be a buddy of mines MTX Thunder 4500's, I'm not sure why, but I hated the sound of those 12's.

    Go for it! Post pics if you got em!

    Re: Favorites and least favorites.

    Oh and I forgot, this old Jensen (I know, "bad brand") with a white hand on it! The sound quality was pretty bad, but it hit okay, and it was durable! We beat the crap out of that thing. Hooked it up to a Rockford T1500 and blasted it. We never actually killed it, the surround ripped, the dustcap popped off, and it smelt awful, but to this day, that sub still works! It was also the first sub I ever had, so it is remembered fondly.

    Re: Favorites and least favorites.

    Probably catch some flack for it, but I really liked my alpine type-x's.
    Least- MTX Thunder's - don't remember which series they happen to be because it's going on 15 years ago or so now. Probably didn't help that I had them stuffed in a prefab bandpass box for my first system ever.

    I have to agree w/ the Adire Brahma MKII.

    I used to have a Adire Brahma MKII 10" D2 on JBL BP1200.1 w/ Harrison Labs 30hz HPF Fmods in 1.3ish cuft @ 28hz....w/ the old Pioneer DEH6400 HU.

    Damit, that 10" sub was seeexxxxxxx....I just wish Dan could have kept the company alive, and the XBL^2 idea would have progressed even further!!!!!

    Re: Favorites and least favorites.

    Favorite: Savard Pro. Was just like the OLD kicker competitions, but better (I really wish they'd come back, I still have a Rap 15")
    Reason: No matter how it was setup, no matter the box, they hit so **** hard, and sounded clean.
    Least Favorite: All 9 of my JL12W6s in '97.
    Reason: Magnets slid apart after playing for about an hour. (subs were about 6 months old) YES MAGNETS SLID APART UNDER THAT RUBBER COVER. And JL would NOT warranty their product, saying I over-powered them drastically.



    Looking to buy 2nd and 3rd gen Orion 2100 HCCAs.
