I am slowly building a system, but it is coming along. Soon I will be getting to the subs and amp. while I have been set on getting the sundowns, lately I have began to question if they are the right sub for my application or not. For the sake of simplicity if nothing else, I have decided to go with Alpine for everything with the exception of subs, I planned on SA12's. I am getting an Alpine MRX M-240 amp that makes 1,500W @ 4 ohms, regardless of which subs I get.
I mostly listen to rock and metal music, so booming is not so much desired as hitting. The more I read here and look around, it seems the Sundowns are well suited for the traditional long low bass tones found in rap,hi-hop, and dub-step. The alpines X series are built with aluminium windings and formers which makes me think they will offer the faster and crisper response the music I like demands. I know either one would be a good sub, but I have not listened to either and hoped some of you good people have and could share some knowledge/experience. As always. I appreciate your opinions and input.
