    How big is your box? Don't get an HX2, look into an SQ woofer.

    Re: Which subwoofer should I buy?

    Whoever said HX2, that is mainly SPL so I dun't really want that. My box is sumwhere from 1ft^3 to 1.2ft^3 so I dunno if that would be big enough for a 15 mag d2. The Alpine Type R isn't going to work because I said 1 woofer and 1200 to one type R is most likely gonna be too much for it.

    Re: Which subwoofer should I buy?

    if a 15" inch D2 wont fit then a 12" should. You could also check out an RE xxx. I think the d2 would work better with around 1200 watts, but if you ever decided to upgrade your amp, a xxx would be able to handle it.

    Re: Which subwoofer should I buy?

    Well I guess those have been some good suggestions. Although people have suggested other subs, here is a list of the subs in which I may consider getting 1:

    Adire Audio Brahma 12
    RE XXX 12
    RE SX 12
    Mag d2 12
    IDMAX V3 12

    Of those 5 subs, which will 1.) Have excellent SQ and 2.) Be loud enough for people to hear me coming down the street

    Remember, I have a BP1200.1 so I can put out 1200rms to one of those subs. After researching I'm guessing the IDMAX has the best SQ of the bunch, but will it get loud enough for people to hear me comin' down the street? The Mag D2 sounds like an awesome sub, sum1 suggested the 15, but I've never heard a 15" sub and I don't know what to expect it to sound like would it be much different then the 12? Also I have a sealed box for a 12 so I don't think the 15 is an option really. The Brahma seems awesome too, but it says 1600w rms in which 1200w might not get it going that well. I've been told before that it is better to slightly overpower a sub than to underpower it. Also the XXX is 1600w rms so I guess that would be eliminated too? Unless 1200w would really get it going, but I dunno. The SX seems pretty promising, but I've read it might be more of an SPL than an SQ sub? Although I'm sure it sounds good because its an RE tho. So I guess my list is down to IDMAX12, SX12 and Mag d2 12, but if you think something else from the list would be better with my setup then tell me. So plz give me suggestions on those subs. Feel free to give me suggestions on other subs, but from the research I have done I would say that my attention is toward those 5.

    no it is not better to overpower a sub than underpower it. there is nothin wrong with underpowering a sub, that is unless you get a weak amp and try to turn the gains way up and end up clipping the signal.... anyways for loud sq, id go with an xxx

    In all honesty, pick one of those out of a hat, either way you will not be disapointed.

    Re: Which subwoofer should I buy?

    allright then forget i mentioned the 15" mag d2. Get either a 12" mag d2 or a 12" xxx if you want sq and want it to get loud.

    I think I might get the mag d2 12 then. The price is good and the power rang is probably better for my amp. Although I think the XXX is **** **** lookin, 400w underpower may not be that great. But its all about install right? What kind of box demension would get the XXX really going to full excursion? I was reading on this one site that a brahma could get to its full excursion with 300-400w in the right box, so with the right box I'm guessing I could push the XXX fine. What do you think?

    Re: Which subwoofer should I buy?

    1200 watts should be fine unless you really want to compete. If you like the looks of the xxx more, and you're willing to pay a few more dollars, then the xxx will be sweet.
