    Obsidian audio? Too good to be true?

    I've heard some wonderful reviews, and I want to get a 15 or 18 and toss it in a 2008 Scion xB, will it get low in the right box? The amp would be right around 600rms to 1000peak. I love the lows, and the price on these is great. So if it's a good sub, 15 or 18? I'll probably be getting a better amp soon, of necessary.

    My 18 got nasty on 1200 watts. My 15's got REALLY nasty on 2400.

    Depends on the space you have. If you have room for the 18", by all means go for the 18". Don't let anybody tell you that it will be slower, sloppier, or do anything better than the 15... because they will be dirty liars.

    Thank you man, I'll take some measurements and see. I love me some big subs. Except the crap MTX and those other BS brands put out, the 22's, 24's, and that 32 or 36.

    It's going to use their SHD motor, which they rate at 5k.
