    Icon32 Looking for new subs

    Alright well I have a few questions first. Right now my sub system is a pair of eD 15a.22's @ 35hz and a PG Xenon 1200.1 I like the sound of these subs, but they just seem to be underpowered, and with the T joint problems in the past I get nervous everytime I turn it up, especially when I have just one hooked up. I have a few noob questions for anyone who wants to answer

    1- If I have 2 subs, for instance a 15sx and 15xxx, the sub with closest matching RMS rating will be louder in most cases right?
    2- Seeing how im not using these subs to their full potential, plus I think they are geared towards sq more, would I be better off going with a single 15 with 1200 watts to it, OR a pair of subs, maybe 12's or 15's with 600RMS to each??
    3- I have my subs sold to my friends, Im goin to have around 400 to spend on the sub or pair of subs. I want a sql sub. RE subs have my attention seeing how they are really popular, and with a pair of Se's id be giving them RMS, but IF I can save some cargo space, I would be excited, IF not its ok.
    4- I was thinkin an 18" sub, but how big of a box does it need? I remember reading it was like 8 cubes or somthing huge.
    5- I want some of your opinions, Im not going to be competing, strictly daily driving.

    $400 dollars, 1200wrms on tap, which sub(s)?

    No. It depends on the boxes, efficiency, etc etc. Read the 1st and 2nd things in my sig.


    2- Seeing how im not using these subs to their full potential, plus I think they are geared towards sq more, would I be better off going with a single 15 with 1200 watts to it, OR a pair of subs, maybe 12's or 15's with 600RMS to each??
    Depends on what you are looking for. A pair of decently-high displacement 12s or 15s may have the potential to get louder than a single 15. But a single 15 will surely get pretty loud also.

    3- I have my subs sold to my friends, Im goin to have around 400 to spend on the sub or pair of subs. I want a sql sub. RE subs have my attention seeing how they are really popular, and with a pair of Se's id be giving them RMS, but IF I can save some cargo space, I would be excited, IF not its ok.
    Not quite sure how to respond to that Not sure if you are asking for other suggestions or something?

    4- I was thinkin an 18" sub, but how big of a box does it need? I remember reading it was like 8 cubes or somthing huge.
    Rediculously huge boxes. If cargo space is a concern, don't look at getting an 18.

    $400 dollars, 1200wrms on tap, which sub(s)?
    What all do you currently have in mind??

    Re: Looking for new subs

    I was thinking particularily of a pair of Se 15s, SX15 XXX15. I have just been reading on Magnum d2, Death penalties etc, I have a pair of eD A series 15s, which have decent displacement on them, It just seems they really want more power than what I have. When I have one hooked up I get alittle worried cuz of the problems they have with the former.

    I hate asking these questions, but its hard to pick a sub that ive never heard before. I did it with the eD subs, they sound great.

    Re: Looking for new subs

    check out soundsplinter subs..

    http://www.soundsplinter.com/rlp_pre...subwoofer.html


    a pair of the rl-p 15's will run u a little over the $400 ($459)..but these are a awesome sql woofer!! i am running a single rl-p 12 in my wife's 04 grand prix off a nemesis nx750d....it is awesome! the sq is better then anything i have ever owned and it gets plenty loud(enuff so my wife won't hardly turn the amp on) to rattle just about everything. and i'm running it in 1.25ft^3.....these things get low (can only imagine how low a 15 could go..lol), handle transitions easily and like i said..get loud!


    to top all that off, [email protected] , is just about the coolest guy u will talk to...also check out http://www.soundsolutionsaudio.com/f...p?showforum=41 , soundsplinters official forum, mike checks in there regularly (also, less bs then here)...

    if u email mike, he will get back to ya quick, not months later (like a certain company who has yet to answer my email, 6 months later..re) and answer ur questions thourghly and honestly.


    it's well worth the time to check them out!









    wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eee
