    Need Help with new set up

    OK guys Its time to make a change. Right now me and my freind switched systems. He has my 2 15" Phoenix Gold Titanium DVC running off a Hifonics 1000 in a ported box 32hz. And I have his 2 12" JL W3v2's running off a JL 500/1. So were gonna trade back and Im gonna sell the 2 15"s cause they wont fit in my trunk. And Im debating between these subs. They will be running off the Hifonics Amp.

    1 15" RE SX
    1 15" RE XXX
    2 IA Lethal Injections 12"

    Which do you think would be the best with that Amp.

    Open to any other suggestions too.

    Thanks

    Re: Need Help with new set up

    spl on a budget (SX)
    super sql (xxx)
    super spl (2 LI's)

    thats my breakdown. you will be loudest with the LI's. be loud with the xxx as well as have awesome sq, and will be almost as loud with the sx just not as good of sq as the xxx. i should mention if that is a 500 watt amp, you should go with the cheapest setup here and step your amp up. that amp isnt gonna cut it in any of the aplications without a huge *** box.

    edit: woops just realized that your gonna be running the hifonics and not the JL amp. either way, i would go with the sx most likely in that application. if i were you though and you want a more spl orientated system get the LI's and a powerful enough amp for them...boom

    the SX will get louder than the xxx in most applications. and most likely this one too. i would go with the LI's personally. but the SX would be hella cool.

    really? i havnt yet ran a single sx in a ported box against my friends xxx, but that thing get hella loud. from what i read though supposedly the sx can keep up with the xxx in output to a certain level until the xxx just starts to take over in the higher wattage range. of course this is from reading, not a actual test between me and my friend. now you say most applications, are you speaking like what most peopel would run IE 1000 watts or whatever, or are you sayin it can keep in almost all the wattage range until of course the xxx takes over due to suspension limitations? thanks

    edit: btw i should add i do not have expereince with the LI's. im just saying output wise they should be louder with all things considered. SQ wise, im going from reading. i do have expereince with the other subs mentioned but there are more people on here that are more informed than myself so take my advice with some hesitation.

    of course the xxx could handle more power and end up getting louder. but how many people do you see puting a 2500d on an SX daily? and when i say most applications, i mean lower power, daily driving installs.
