    Trying to decide on sub...

    I am trying to decide on which sub to run. I have narrowed my selection down to three subs. I would like to know, from experience, what are the pros/cons as far as why I should or should not run the sub. I've heard mixed reviews on all of them, yet none were from people CURRENTLY using said sub. So, I turn to YOU GUYS for advice. This is for Four 15" subs I will run in my 2011 ext cab Silverado. I already have a vented enclosure (had 4 SA-15s). If I should run another model of said brand, let me know. I have one Massive D8000.1, but can get another.

    1.) dB Drive K9
    2.) American Bass XFL
    3.) RE Audio ***

    I've heard/read that the newer XFL's soft parts aren't as good as they used to be, am I getting false info?

    you are so wrong ,the new xfl is better than the older ones .larger spider landing ,stiffer spiders = more power handling

    Awesome. That's motivational. I think I will hit up my friend who sells AB and order a set of 4 from him.

    Just not so sure about wiring it down to 0.5 for daily use. But, it says that's its "stable" point...so why not? Right? LMAO
