    IDMAX vs. supersubs

    Anybody know how well the idmax stacks up against the supersubs (xxx, brahma, rl-p, avalanche...) out there?

    Thinkin of buying one...wanted to hear some opinions.

    Very comparable to the other "supersubs". Excellent SQ sub that can get pretty dang loud too. The Brahma, XXX and W7 outdisplace it...but not by much. So, it can get relatively loud still. It and the rl-p are pretty hand-in-hand as far as displacement goes. Distortion wise it isn't far behind any of them either.

    Overall a very nice sub. Very versatile aswell....works well ported, sealed or IB.

    IDMax is a 'supersub'.

    squeak summed it up well imo.

    So, good sub, but it's not really going to outperform an RL-P, which can be had for a lot less, I see.

    cant handle near as much as the rest of the subs listed in thermal power handling. It having a smaller coil pretty much sums it up..They sound nice imho, but dont send it too much power..

    500-800watts is all it needs

    from the words of matt at ID "I recommend sealing an idmax for most purposes. they sound the best and get pretty loud. Now port that son of a ***** and it'll tear your *** in half"

    Re: IDMAX vs. supersubs

    reason i like an idmax is it plays well outside the sub bass range so getting it to blend in is pretty simple. on paper it isnt the best in total output it isnt the best. in loudest clean output it isnt the best either but putting it into a usable sq or sql system and having great results is probably the best of the bunch for doing so. its pretty hard to get poor results with it.

    Are there any audible differences from your TC9 (ignoring output if you have different cone sizes)?

    Re: IDMAX vs. supersubs

    Considering that I haven't hooked the TC9+ up in any install, much less in my van..

    I haven't the slightest idea
