    Re vs sundown

    I've asked this on other forums but this looks like the place for it.

    Re sxx v2 12 d4
    Or
    Sundown sa-12 d4

    My amp at 2ohms puts out 1000 rms so that's not the problem. Which is better bang for buck.
    (Already own the RE just wondering if the SD is an upgrade)

    quality wasn't in the profit. as long as theres fools to buy what looks good, theres business. that's basically skar audio's business plan

    Re: Re vs sundown

    looks do matter when you're looking at a sub, but you need to look at the right things and even at that some of things cant be seen without knowing about that subwoofer specifically.

    skar spams the hell out of my local craigslist with shit. they use reputable companies brand name as tags for when you search quality equipment.

    poor quality. little known fact, the xxx was supposed to be neo originally but cost wouldn't allow. the top plate, IMO is more suited for underhung. its not a very saturated structure either. the tinsels are sandwiched and the MMS is nuts which hurts efficiency

    But with enough power it has 4" of throw, great sq, low as ***, and it's arguably the best looking inverted driver. And as far as I know the material quality is good.

    gobs of power indeed to get anywhere near 4" peak to peak and even then it wont be near linear travel nor BL curve. its low end response can be attributed to the great MMS. the coil should be American wound (if hey haven't swapped to china)
