    RE vs Fi

    Just got an RE sxx 15" and a JL 1000/1d.
    I regret it lol.
    I want a Fi BL15 because for almost the same price it's a ******* beast. Trying to sell my RE now, not even a month old.
    You just can't compare RE's new stuff with Fi.

    Re: RE vs Fi

    Yeah the magnet on the Fi is massive.
    Same design but Fi doesn't outsource to china. Do they slam harder?
    I just want a quality US sub which I thought I was getting with the RE.
