    Two Hifonics BX1500D for what pair of 15" subs?

    While waiting for my Adire 15" Brahma to be shipped, i am shopping around for a pair of subs for my daily driver. Acoustic Visions told me that my brahma will be shipped soon; and that was 38 days ago =(

    I got two Hifonics BX1500D amps. Can you guys recommend a good pair of subwoofers? I want somthing with more SPL than SQ, maybe 65% SPL and 35% SQ.

    i would also like to use a ported/vented box, but my trunk is rather small. the max dimensions on the box that can fit my trunk is:

    MAX Width = 43 inches
    MAX Height = 18.5 inches
    MAX Depth = 19 inches

    with the dimensions listed above, would i have trouble fitting two 15" subs [with ported box] into my trunk?

    2 RE XXX would fit into that price range. 2 SX's would be nice as well, a bit cheaper. If you aren't looking for RE, you could go with Kicker L7's. They will have more SPL than SQ

    on RE's website, the XXX's recommended enclosure is 4 cubic feet tuned to 30 HZ. for the cubic feet, is that before or after displacement?

    the XXX's are on my list. im hoping members would name a bunch of subs so i can do some research before i buy.

    dont count on getting the A's. it will be a while longer before they are out. 2 SX's would be sweet and would get louder than a pair of xxx's on 1500 watts apiece.

    Re: Two Hifonics BX1500D for what pair of 15" subs?

    what company makes SC? i was thinking i would find it at www.respl.com but that sub is not listed. Only RE, SE, HC, XXX and MT.

    EDIT: I meant SX sub, not SC.

    Re: Two Hifonics BX1500D for what pair of 15" subs?

    I think what the SX is is actually the SExxx. It is like a beefed up SE with some of the XXX motor. Think you have to contact RE to get them If they are even made yet. Not sure, actually I don't have a clue, but it was worth a shot.

    get XXX's man, screw the brahma. by the time u get it itll probly fall apart on u, and ull be without a sub for another lifetime.
    2 15" XXX's should cost u like 900 bucks shipped. With 2 hifonics 1500d's that would be nasty loud and sound awesome. and i mean SICK loud.

    are the brahma subs really that bad? i thought the brahma and XXX were similar subs and were built in the same build house?
