They are hands down a great company from top to bottom.

    Re: Why is new RE XXX not good?

    Hey guys,
    Thanks for all the info. Just out of curiosity, would i still be better off with the zcons over two Sundown zv5s? Which would excel where and why?
    Thank you

    That's like asking wether to get a Lamborghini or a Ferrari for most bassheads. Your never going to get a straight up answer unfortunately.

The zcon would still be superior right? Is the xxx truly not worth it anymore?
    shit motor, inefficient and unbalanced sub. All that MMS and you'll never come close to reaching half of it unless you throw a lot of power, but even then the coil might not even handle it.

    Yeah I’ve noticed. I unfortunately have never heard either in person, but have heard many good things about both. If I was doing two 12s on a twisted sounds 3.5k at half ohm, they’re both getting right about 5k. Just not sure which to get

    I'll stick to my underling large diameter coils before I DO SC.
    Xbl works good but the geometry cause it to be huge expensive and heavy.

    Because at the level that those two are on, it really comes down to tuning. Both are reputable companies, both have impeccable customer service. What it would really boil down to is if you are willing to wait for build time with the zcons. You would not be disappointed with either sub, so basically 6 in one hand and half a dozen in the other know what I mean dude?

    I loved my old XXX's.

    I don't think the new one are bad at all. They sound really nice and are well built IMO. The big downside is the MSRP is brutal and also they use all proprietary parts. For example if you blew up the '02 version you could recone it with easy to find parts and either keep it underhung or put in a coil that would be well suited for SPL, or just throw in whatever parts.
