Re: Which subs would work better for rock/metal music, Sundown SA12 or Alpine SWX-124
Its more in the lines of, which subs are more picky. Your cabin gain, vehicle accoustics and how you can build your box to hit that sweet spot is more important then what brand of subs. I've had ported enclosures play kick drums just as good as a sealed box but its hella louder. Your going to want a larger box with adequate port area to give the flattest response possible. Find out your vehicle's peak frequency and use winISD to model something that would work well with that to smooth out the response curve. I listen from anywhere to old school metallica, megadeth to new school hadcore metals and trust me, its a lot of work building and tuning boxes to get the right sound. Sub brand is the least of your worries.
