    15" Death Penalty vs 15" XXX

    Hey guys, I had my mind set on a 15" XXX. Until I started reading reviews on the DP. Now I am contemplating (sp?) on either the DP or XXX. First off how well is the DP's low end? I listen to rap only, mainly southern rap that has lots of low bass notes, ex: three six mafia, gangsta pat, gangsta blac, playa fly, kingpin skinny pimp, dayton family, and also too short My box is going to be tuned low (32hz) So I want that low loud bass to be heard. Also how well can the DP take high amounts of power? I got a orion 2500d with gains set at about 2k watts. Please reply i'm unsure of what sub to get!! Thanks!

    Re: 15" Death Penalty vs 15" XXX

    I think 'Moe Lester' has one ... might want to talk to him.

    Especially in this comparison, see the first line in my sig. Too many people are confusing the hell out of others, so take opinions straight from people who actually own/have heard the driver.

    Re: 15" Death Penalty vs 15" XXX

    Steve, thats what I am afraid of. People commenting on what they "heard". I am just out to get a review of the DP on its low end performance, and how well it can handle the amount of power that I want to supply it with. Someone who has actualyl heard this woofer perform, please reply. KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!

    Re: 15" Death Penalty vs 15" XXX

    I've heard both in person. The DP was in an SPL install...shitloads of power...they can take the power easily. I've heard 1 XXX 12 on a bx1500d in a daily install. SO, it's kinda hard to compare the two...BUT, what is the main focus of this setup?!?! SPL or SQ....a perfect mix of the two...or are u leaning a lil one way. peace

    Re: 15" Death Penalty vs 15" XXX

    Hey, thanks for the reply. This is going to be my daily driver, being put into a 2002 monte carlo ss. I want a SQL setup. Maily 60/40 SPL/SQ. But what I want to hear the most is the low end bass. You know what I mean. The low, loud, rumbling ****....more suggestions needed guys!!!

    XXX would be put in a 4cuft box tuned to 30hz
    DP would be put into a 4.5cuft box tuned to 32hz

    Re: 15" Death Penalty vs 15" XXX

    Well, i'd honestly say it's a toss up. I mean, the DP is a lil more SPL oriented...and i *guess* it could get louder than the XXX...but i dunno, if it was up to me it would depend on which was cheaper...and how quickly i needed it (which i know DP's have a waiting list, and the XXX's are out also). So, pick whichever one you have a gut feeling about. peace

    DP's come in Dual 2 and quad 1 ohms. They are also out of stock as of now so you will have to wait for them to get more.....

    Re: 15" Death Penalty vs 15" XXX

    DP 15 = $385 shipped.

    I got to hear an 18XXX yesterday... All i can say is that the SQ was awesome on it. It does sound better than the DP does IMO. A 15" DP vs a 15" XXX though, the DP should be able to get louder. Dont get me wrong though, the DP still does sound good.

    Re: 15" Death Penalty vs 15" XXX

    Darn, i might end up going with a dp instead of an XXX and save me an easy 50 bucks. And I'm guessing that since I'll have an amp thats 1-ohm stable (hf 1500bd) the voicecoil config wouldnt really matter that much. Anyone know when the dp will be back in stock?
