    Yet another "which amp, which subs" question....

    Hey guys,

    Here's the deal. I'm looking to get (2) 10 or 12" subs to finish off my system. I've been looking at ARC because I understand they are substantially cheaper than Rainbow, and I would like to keep it to one of those two brands to go with the rest of my system. I've been recommended either KAR, Extreme, or ARC series. So, basically, the only ARC series I'm not considering is Flat Line.

    For the amp, I've been recommended an ARC KAR 1000.2T, which is most likely the amp I'll be going with.

    I'm having a difficult time finding comparisons of the KAR, Extreme, and ARC series subs. What are the differences between these lines? Why should I go for one over another? Anybody that can shine some light, it's much appreciated. Thanks.

    ARC KAR 400.4
    Rainbow SLC 265
    Rainbow SL 165
    ARC KAR 1000.2T
    ARC 10s (x2)

    LOL. Thanks man. I would post on the Org, but I feel that forum is reserved for mostly screwing around. And I've been talking to Don about this stuff, but he seems too busy to answer all of my questions.

    Aren't flat lines much more expensive than the rest? I'm going for SQ more than SPL, just so you know.
