    RE Question and New vs. Used

    two sealed SE 15s vs. 1 ported XXX 15....which one takes the cake for sq and SPL?

    Also, how much louder would two 15 xxx ported be compared to 1? Like 4-5 dB?

    And lastly, are there downsides to buying two used subs to run together, but from different people? Like, someone might have played one harder or broke it in different...?

    Re: RE Question and New vs. Used

    no transferrable warranty is the biggest downside of buying used...
    also that you dont know how the previous owner treated it...

    Re: RE Question and New vs. Used

    I meant if I were using two subs broken in at different periods and treated differently, if I ran them together...

    Re: RE Question and New vs. Used

    one might have a looser suspension or something... but
    after a little while of use im sure everything would even
    out...

    making the jump from SE's to XXX as well???

    the 15s are incredible, I was just thinking about getting the XXX now...how much louder would two 15XXX be compared to one?

    depends on install

    in a perfect world and all variables the same, double the pressure equates to +3dba

    depends on install... crazy kids.

    oh and power and tuning and whatnot. The SE's might win in loudness due to more surface area but you never know what a porting will throw at you until you try. Power will play a factor also.

    Re: RE Question and New vs. Used

    I believe the 15xxx would be louder, it can take alot more power than 2 se's, more excursion, its ported. My 2 cents
