    debating on subs for upgrade

    Ok as in my sig I have 2 re mx 12's powered by an md3d each. I was looking on upgrading to some FI subs or maybe some sundowns. what are your thought would it be much of an upgrade or what it not be worth the change. In other words if I changes subs to maybe something more efficient would I notice a differences in output plus sound quality?

    Re: debating on subs for upgrade

    The MX is a really high quality sub. Unless you want to play fartbox I wouldn't bother looking elsewhere, and if you want to just get loud for the sake of getting loud I wouldn't really be looking into Fi, go really big like IA Warden, Shocker Sig, DD Z (or at least 95XX), DC LV6, TRF, TSNS.

    Re: debating on subs for upgrade

    but if I go the rout for mayhem's they are 2500rms I am a little under that would it be a problem? when I get my alt I should be around 2000 to 2200 rms on each . If I had the room for a bunch of batts I would buy them dual 1 and run the hell out of them but I have no more space lol. only thing I am missing is my HO alt that I plan on getting before any other upgrades then some better subs. again the mx isn't bad I just hit nicer and better with other subs in the past.

    Re: debating on subs for upgrade

    Stick with MX's, I loved those subs when my friend had them. Was very envious. Plus they're shmexy.

    I dont think you'd notice a difference anyways.

    Sensitivity has little bearing on <80hz duty. For all practical purposes it's a BS number. I would at least suggest if you must buy something else, don't sell the MX's or you'll probably regret it if you want to sound good again.

    That will make a huge difference! Glad you found it, happened to me once I was wondering why they were bottoming out so easily low and behold.
