    Only thing I know is dd subs definitely like larger boxes one 12 in a 3.25 box tuned 32 is nasty and plays fairly flat.

    I've been running the cheaper 1000 series single 12 in 2.5 cubes in my daily driver and it gets plenty low & plays very well overall musically

    Re: DD subs are peaky and don't get low?

    just like pretty much anything, it is pretty much all box dependent. Response looks super flat, good job.

    aside from box design, copper v. aluminum coil and ferrite v. neo i think have a decent deal with if a sub is "peaky" or not. not 100% sure on that though.

    The new i models dont need a huge box. DD is saying you can run 3 12s in 5 cubes now. I'm not reaching full xmax now but I do plan on adding a bit more power.

    New basket woofers ? The new ones with the new suspension will be ALOT smoother than the old style drivers; which is where the generalization came from. In terms of music the new platforms are a massive step up.

    Yes they are. Way lower fs then prior models. You can still get the stiff suspension pack and raise it.

    It was an h series so maybe its changed doubt it though as far as dd recommending a box I wouldn't trust a word out of their mouth.

    A freind is running a "DD box" doing a 149.9 with a single 9518 on 2400 rated watts on basically stock electrical. It may not work for every install but its working for his.

    Nice numbers! I always thought DD/AQ subs like/need higher tuned boxes compared to the 33hz tune you have.
