    Icon32 12" Magnum d2 or 12" RE SX - Just straight up opinions

    Hey guys. Just wanted all your 2 cents. I have searched through the threads and read a lot about each, but was just wondering opions straight up. The sub will be in a 2.2 ft^3 box tuned to around 30-34 hz. It will probably have either the visonik vx900d or a hifonics 1500 running to it. Thanks all!!

    -Matt

    PS: please dont recommend bigger box sizes as that is the max room I have in the back of my wrangler .

    Re: 12" Magnum d2 or 12" RE SX - Just straight up opinions

    what is your goal? SQ/SPL? If SQ then I would say magnum, if you want spl I believe the SX is a loud sub w/ good but not outstanding SQ, you also might want to look into the Orion H2 w/ the bx1500d if you want loud.



    Words of wisdom:
    "you don't need ohms to make a sub loud. trust me."

    My System:
    HU: *stolen
    Speakers: CDT CL-61a
    Speaker amp: HiFonics Hawk
    Sub: Magnum D2 15
    Sub amp: HiFonics BX1500D
    Box: 4.3cu.ft. tuned to 30hz

    Two totally different drivers.

    Either driver will work.

    Just depends on what you want. (SQ / SPL / whatever wise)

    I'm not going to be the one to tell you to get sub X because it's 'better'.

    I agree with 78nova, Mag is better for a small box application.

    Re: 12" Magnum d2 or 12" RE SX - Just straight up opinions

    magnums get loud and sound AMAZING. honestly though, with a wrangler id rather downfire a sub than port it regular. or maybe ur porting it and down firing....

    If you are considering the Sx, you will need another cubic foot of enclosure space. The Magnum would produce some nice results in the smaller box you suggested.

    Re: 12" Magnum d2 or 12" RE SX - Just straight up opinions

    Interesting ... So i guess its magnum or orion ... I think I am going to go for the mag as I have heard a lot more good things from them. Also, the sub is going to be firing down and ported down .

    Thanks everyone for all the help!! Keep sending opions if you've got em
