    Icon32 Need some advice guys.

    Hi guys,

    since most of you have heard most subwoofers and have lotsa experience in the field, I would to get some advice from you guys (concerning new subwoofers).

    First, this is my current install:
    - Rockford Fosgate 1501BD amplifier (for the subwoofers running stable at 1.3 ohms)
    - Soundstream Tarantula 500/4 (for the 2 component sets)
    - 2x CDT Audio ES-620 component sets
    - 3x MB Quart PWE 302
    - Pioneer DEH-8400MP (going to be replaced by Alpine 9835 headunit in the near future)
    - 2x Rockford Fosgate 1 Farad Capacitators
    - Optima Yellowtop battery

    Here is a picture of my trunk with the MB Quart subwoofers installed: http://www.vanderlingen.nl/PF/mijnstereo.jpg

    Too be honest, I'm a bit disappointed with the MB Quarts, they didn't fulfill the expactations I had of them. They don't sound accurate on fast speedy low bass at high volume.

    Now I am planning to buy (Stereo Integrity):
    3x 12" SI D2 subwoofers
    or
    2x 15" SI D2 subwoofers

    What would you guys recommend?

    The music I mostly listen too is: Techno, Hardtrance, Hardstyle, Hardhouse and Hardcore. So this means the bass needs to be low, but still very accurate and fast! Even when you turn up the volume! This is really a MUST!

    So guys, if you have any advice whatever, please share it with me.

    Thanks in advance already.

    PS.: Sorry about my crappy English grammar, but hopefully you can understand my posting.

    Re: Need some advice guys.

    Since you already have the box for it, you could go with the 12's. You could even go with a pair of 12's and use your middle hole as a port to really help produce you low end frequencies. (That's what I would do.)

    P.S.: Don't worry about your grammar. It's better than most Americans on this board.

    Well I'm considering a complete new box, so that's not the problem. So if 2x 15" will perform better. I will go for that option.

    I just wanted too know what you people would think.

    Re: Need some advice guys.

    Anybody with some experiences with Stereo Integrity D2 subwoofers (formerly known as Magnums)?

    Also are they sturdy enough to be shipped overseas? Cause I ordered 3 NEW Audiobahn ALUM12X subwoofers and when I received them (Netherlands) two of them were broken and cracked!! Luckily they were only 90 dollars each, would be worse if they were 300 dollars each. Hehe.

    there is the stereo integrity forum there. And i would go w/ the 2x 15" woofers if you can fit them. I've always loved how 15's sound, and the D2 is an excellent woofer.
