    I like those Bravox subs, I heard one not too long ago and it seemed like a decent sub to me.

    Re: Help me picking my subwoofer <3

    guys it's nearly impossible to ship subwoofers (or anything) from US to Brazil...

    i remember UPS wanting to charge me nearly 300 american dollars ONLY for shipping a CDA-9815 head unit... and i would still have to pay 60% of the product price for custom dutys +++ on a head unit i was ebaying for 222 dollars

    what i have i bought used (VERY used )... that's why my HU and Amplifiers aren't that bad...

    i need something according to my reality

    thanks

    No way! US Postal service all the way .
    Sure, you might have to wait 10 weeks for a surface shipment. But an RL-p12 to Brazil would run $75 for shipping--roughly three times what it would cost on average to ship one within the US. One week airmail is $140. It is no doubt more expensive than domestic shipments, but you also have to figure that the dealers over there are charging much more for products that sell here for less. Thus, a trade off.

    FedEx is also nice for US-to-Canada shipments since it costs about the same as USPS Surface and takes roughly 1/10th the time... (though FedEx does require a lot of paperwork for their International Ground service which drives me up the wall)

    Granted, the aforementioned options are likely to be over our Brazilian friend's budget - but there are quite a few people that do buy products over lengthy distance and have no problem paying the extra for shipping; since in all honesty (and not to toot my own horn! ), there are a nice variety of US-based woofer solutions that either aren't available internationally, or are available at incredible markup.

    Everything is relative though - there is great bass everywhere .. different types to be sure, but bass nonetheless!

    Good luck on your system Slaugh
