    dd9512 or idmax12s?

    I have been looking for some new subs and havenarowed it down to the idmax 12 and the dd 9512 subs. I have 2300 watts rms at 1 ohm from my amp. I don't know that much about the tuning of a box. i have found places to buy the image dynamics but I can't find anywhere to buy the dd's. Anyone knows anything help me out. Thanks.

    Re: dd9512 or idmax12s?

    Uh... I hope you're talking about a pair of woofers, cuz that's way way too much power for a single IDMax.

    And, imo you;re comparing two very different woofers built for two very different applications, the choice should be easy. The DD9500's are built tough to withstand alot of abuse and bash out some serious SPL (but sound... decent). The IDMax is designed to accurately reproduce even the most detailed sub-bass at relatively high levels. DD's get louder, ID's sound better... you chose. *shrug*

    What are you looking for in your setup? Sound quality? SPL? Both?

    i have an idMAX and i love it. havent heard any other supersubs though.. i just hopped on the bandwagon thanks to this forum and dont think ill ever come off. if youre looking for a daily driver to play music go with the idMAX. if you wanna attempt to make your passengers go deaf, join a competition, or just be plain LOUD go with the DD.

    Well Im a big fan of the Brahma, and I own XXX's, so yeah I like them. There are alot of other good sub choices out there too, check into SoundSplinter, Incriminator Audio, Ascendant Audio... I also like Image Dynamics IDMax. I personally would stay away from Audiobahn, even the Immortals.

    Re: dd9512 or idmax12s?

    2 SXs will get loud and sounds fairly good doing it, they are not fart machines like some subs like L7 and others, but u would need to change voice coil ohms to dual 4 to get 2 at 1 ohm and will be right 500 without shipping

    I didnt listen to em or anything, lol...not so impressive #'s for the power I was using (~4-5k)...mt's pwned them...

    i feel i should mention the 9500's were different models (c and d series) and the coils werent the exact impedance's on all of the lines...the way i had them wired the dd's idealy should have seen morepower
