    ADIRE,RESONANT,or IMAGE DYNAMICS?

    Im just curious of everyons opinion... This is my first car and also my first car audio project and im looking for some subs with a good mix of SQ and SPL. From reading peoples threads I can tell that these 3 subs seem to be the way to go as far as quality and sound are concerned. All three of them look great to me so I need all your help to decide. Im getting 3 12's that will be powered by a PPI 1000 watt mono amp. The three subs i am considering are the Adire Shiva, Resonant Engineering SE, and the Image Dynamics IDQ. Any help you guys can pass along would be great!

    All three are great, and anyone of them would do you great. I personally like and have heard 2 of them, the IDQ and the Shiva, and love them both. The Shiva will be great with the amp and so will the IDQ. Its all up to your personal choice. I am promoting the RE XXX right now because it has the best SPL/SQ mix of any sub, so you might want to take a look at them.

    You don't have to be fixed on 3 12s, one 18 will whip major arse. Also Blueprint is a great choice.

    Yes, the new amps are compaired to the 1200.1. They are about the same price right now on their web site, but you better get them quick if you want them, because that is a preorder price only. Throughout my research on RE, I have found their products to be excellent. RE does do one thing wrong IMO, in rating their amps. They rate it at 14.4V instead of 12V. Look at the bench test numbers, and judge for yourself. You should get 1100@2ohms out of that amp.
