    Orion h2 15 vs AA Avalanche 15 vs RE SE 15

    I was wondering which of the two would be a louder SQL Daily Driver..

    I would run each of the subs at their recommended wattage. I would probably put them in a ported enclosure.

    - Which one would get louder

    - Which one would sound better..


    Please.. only comment if you have experience with these subs
    thanks

    Re: Orion h2 15 vs AA Avalanche 15

    Well I just started running the avalanche a few days ago...very impressed so far. The SQ is amazing, and it gets loud enough for a daily driver, you really shouldn't need any more IMHO.

    Re: Orion h2 15 vs AA Avalanche 15

    Loud enough(percent volume?)...? What are you using to push it? Does any part of your car flex?

    anyone have experience with both? tuan... TTA guys?

    Re: Orion h2 15 vs AA Avalanche 15

    I never turn any of my stereos up past half way on the HU, and the avalanche is plently loud there, being pushed by a bx1000d. As a comparison, the last sub I was running was a 15A and they both have about the same output with the avalanche having a slight edge I think.

    As far as flexing...yes, things flex, everything flexes. I don't know why that's important, but you wanted to know.

    The H2s are not very well designed drivers. Really high Q, poor overall design. Definitely get the Avalanche, far more competently designed driver, and won't be REALLY high Q in ANY box, unlike the H2, which has a sky high Qtc in any box.

    Re: Orion h2 15 vs AA Avalanche 15

    Not sure the exact amount of power I'm pushing with the amp, but I'd guess around 800, yes...maybe a little more.

    Re: Orion h2 15 vs AA Avalanche 15

    Comparable to an SX in output. My brother is running an SX with an dei1100d on it and the avalanche is not quite as loud on some notes, but dominates the SX on the low notes off just over 800ish watts (bx1000d).

    They produce a completely different sound, but when you take the average output over the spectrum, there isn't a huge difference between the two in the setups I've heard.
