just replace this box man... I can't believe you still have it. It is the source of your discontent. Not the sub.
It is all about the enclosure. I've heard garbage subs sound good in the right box.
The fi q can dig very low in the right box, but it is not an sq sub by any means just high power handling sub that can dig low. I would not recommend getting for sq. if u want a cheap sq sub get a Dayton ho or idq v2/v3
get a tc sounds sub to hit the lows
a used ed 13av2, they seem to be cheap used and love the lows
I'm about to jump on that custom Type X 2500wrms....
You guys forgot that I'm trying to get as much trunk space as possible
I already have sketches for a good box for my 15, but its an addition 3 inches deeper than my current box, and I'm tryna go smaller ban my current setup...

if you can fork out a couple more bucks this is it brand new, amazing subs. i love mine. designed for lows and 2 me a better sub than the fi q 1200rms but underrated
Lets think about this!
That Custom Type X @ 1 ohm 1200ish watts in a good box tuned to "dig da lows" will probably sound better, and get louder than my OA15 @ 2 ohms 700ish watts in its current box (I've got 12v electrical) right?
And I get a ton more trunk space too....
BTW you guys are right that I can just turn it down, I've got a freaking bass knob at my finger tips when I drive! So let's forget about trying to be quieter, since I can (and do) change it on demand!
I have a custom tc-9 12". It is on a candy blue ti basket but is missing the trim ring and has a scuff on the surround. 175 shipped and it is yours. Not sure on true rms handling but would doubt that the type x will take more any day of the week. I know it sounds awesome on 1000 rms. It sounds good in 2 cu ft tuned in the 28-32 range.
For $20 ( the shipping charge) I can get that custom Type X which is built for 2000+ RMS which has never been powered, so basically brand new...
I highly doubt I'm going to find a woofer like that for so cheap...
Plus, it doesn't have that dainty Type R Type X surround....
Big surrounds = Big ****!
tc9's are besigned to go lower in small boxes hence the only 2 cube 29hz tuning and the hcca tc9 i posted is brand new 195 shipped
didnt realize cory built those subs, he builds amazing subs. i would get them, just not sure how effecient they will be on 1200rms ?????. dont clip your amp
I don't know how I disliked your post, but I can't undislike it, so don't take it personally!
You don't think 1200 watts to a 2500 watt sub will allow it to flex?????
Can I hit 135dB at 30hz, provided its in a good box?
