    Skar VVXv2 12s vs American Bass XFL 12s

    I have a good deal on both, but I have an even better deal on the VVXv2s! Let me know what y'all think. I know the XFL 12s will take a lot of power.. But I have VVXs right now and they take a lot of power, while also sounding great and DESTROY the lowest of the lows. I'm not exactly sure what all is new with the v2 but I just want to know which would be a better deal.

    An XFL would dominate a VVX in any category lol, you're comparing a 3" vc 1000 rms sub to a 2.5" vc 600 rms sub

    Both subs are good, but the XFL wins hands down. And XFLs are definitely low end monsters, but thats more based on enclosure that the subwoofer.

    You're basically gonna hear that the XFL will be the way to go. At an unbiased standpoint, I'd still say the XFL will be the better subwoofer. If you feel like the VVX will be the better deal, go for it. However, if you're looking for the better performer, like IonRL said, you're comparing a 3" VC 1000w sub to a 2.5" 600w sub. Hands down, the XFL will outperform the VVX, given both are in proper enclosures.

    Alright thanks. Im just looking to dominate lows while still playing dominating the higher notes and whichever would get louder. They'll be running off of a Soundstream Rubicon 2500.

    then do the xfl's, you won't be disappointed. it all falls on the type of enclosure you have, in the right custom box, the xfl's will hit all the notes you need them to. if you don't already have one, check with double 07. there were a set of xfl 10's on sale in the classies, might do pretty decent lows in that versa.

    For sure. No need I have a sick deal on 2 XFL 12s. (the newer models) My current box is 4 cubes tuned to 33hz but I'm looking to go bigger for the XFLs since I hear they like a bigger box for the lows.
