    Nasty Sounding 15" XXX?

    My friend is telling me not 2 get a 15" sub because it will sound nasty.

    Is this true? Im gonna go pick up an XXX 15 tomorrow. He has me thinking now, Should i go with something else. But then again, he works at Circuit City. He never heard of RE audio before. Sub going in 5 or 6 cubes. I really havent heard much subs before.... L7 12's and Rockford p2 10. L7s loud and muddy, 10s sound ok.

    Should i scrap the idea of a single 15?


    Heres my Setup (Nothing Installed Yet )

    Stock BMW HU
    Audiocontrol EQX
    Diamond m6
    Phoenix Gold Octane R
    BX1500D Amp

    Tell him he is an idiot for me, k. He is just like the guy at a local stereo shop here that told me welding cable is only good for voltage, not current. I was so shocked by the stupidity that I couldn't speak.

    Re: Nasty Sounding 15" XXX?

    It might be just me, or it might be the installs I've heard them in, but I think that L7s and L5s have horrible SQ. I don't enjoy them one bit, and the squareness just pisses me off more. And of course the XXX will be better than an audiobahn in terms of.....well, anything.

    Re: Nasty Sounding 15" XXX?

    The XXX is the best sounding sub I have heard to date IMO... Heard several audiobahn/kicker/fosgate/alpine setups, XXX takes the cake
