    Is the avalanche single voice coil or dual voice coils at 2 ohms?

    I called up AA yesterday 15 minutes after they closed (i didnt know) to order an Atlas 15 for 160$. No dice.

    I called today at 6...put the whole order through, and the guy tells me "Okay, itll come out to 121.25. My jaw dropped. I thought he made a mistake, so i hesitated a little bit while i went to their site...sure enough, they dropped, real far too.

    I told him to screw that and put me down for TWO Atlas 15's...impulsive buying makes you lose money. Oh well! Now i have an extra Atlas to play with.

    Im pretty sure the 2 Atlas 15's would be louder...more cone area...



    Take off every 'sig.

    u think 2 15 atlases getting 400 watts would be louder then my 4 10" mtx 8000's getting 300 watts each?

    i dont.

    i havent heard them, so i cant say much, but ive heard a few times that the SPL on the atlas is mediocre at best. SQ is a different story, but i would go with the AV 18. you can feed it a ton of power and make it as loud as you want. haha.. 3kwatts is juusst fine. but seriously, i think the excursion (and i have to believe xmech is much higher) and power handling would give you what youre looking for. i heard theyre loud.
