    Brands comparison

    Best 'bang-for-buck' overall has to go to Dayton Audio. The quality build and design you get for the $$ spent really has no equal. Your question is pretty broad.

    Which Subwoofer

    I’m curious what criteria folks on here are using to judge which sub is ‘better’ than another. Subs like the Alpine X and JL W6 have some pretty nice features... Folks are making claims of ‘this better than that’ and citing nothing to back their claims. Nobody has mentioned motor topology, coil/gap treatment, shorting rings/caps...no modeling results. What makes the Audiofrog so much better? I own quite a bit of AF product...I’m quite pleased with it. But people really would do themselves a service by taking time doing some research and learning what it is that makes for a good subwoofer. ...on a side note the Flatlyne sub looks very interesting...underhung design with a neo magnet.

    WTB: Soundsplinter Rl-p12

    The person you want to talk to on this forum is Ciaonzo...he's the resident expert on all thing TC Sounds. He could more accurately describe the similarities/differences with the assorted TC9 based drivers.

    I have (5) total...I would sell up to (3)...I'm keeping at least a pair. I see you have a tc1000-8...I was able to score a tc1000-15 a few years back. Those tc1000's are hard to find. All TC products seem to be getting much harder to find these days. PM me if interested...I can send pics etc.

    The SS RLP is a tc9 based overhung design. I have a set of Audiomobile MASS 12's...they are also a TC9 design but underhung for more SQ application. Very similar drivers as far as output and power handling...The MASS drivers are more SQ oriented.
  6. If the pods on eBay are yours can you tell me the measurements?
  7. Im looking for pods this style (round): https://m.ebay.com/itm/Audiofrog-GB25-pods-Cover-Rings-for-Midrange-Audiofrog-GB25-Midrange/273252548902?hash=item3f9f1f0126:g:8SoAAOSwN2VbEkRX But as small as possible. Thank you
  8. What are the smallest spherical pods you can make for Audiofrog GB25's?

    What subs?

    With 20hz SS @24db

    What subs?

    Exactly what Kush said...the 12's for sure. Make sure what ever amp (or DSP) you get has a variable subsonic filter...it is a MUST for ported enclosures. The Type-S sub in 1.5cubes, tuned @32hz with 600rms will unload and hit xmax at 26hz...if you apply a subsonic filter at 20hz @24db you will control the sub below the tuning freq.

    What subs?

    The advantage of going with a larger driver will be ability (in most cases) to play lower than smaller drivers. In this case the Fs, = resonance frequency of the driver of the 15 is 27hz, the 12 is 34hz. You could say the 15 is more 'comfortable' playing lower frequencies than the 12. This can be important in ported boxes where tuning below the Fs can sometimes cause issues. The (2) 12's will have a about 19% more cone area, but the 15 is a tad more sensitive...and would only require 1/2 the power.

    What subs?

    For under $200 a sub your best options are Dayton Reference or Alpine Type-S. Both are designed for SQ, have good displacement capabilities, and work with moderate power and small-ish enclosures. Also you may want to consider a single 15 instead of dual 12's...usually a 15 will dig deeper. Someone was selling a couple SoundSplinter RL-P 15's on here not long ago...based off the legendary TC9 platform it will easliy out perform any combo of 12's mentioned in this thread. My advice, grab a single 15, throw 800-100rms at it. Forget Skar and Kicker...Skar is garbage and unfortunately Kicker's quality has gone down hill over the last couple decades. Look to brands like Alpine, Sundown, JL, anything TC Sounds built, Image dynamics, Dayton Reference/Ultimax. Honestly the best value in subs right now would be Alpine Type-S...underhung motor/coil design, 15mm excursion, relatively shallow mounting depth, inexpensive, Alpine quality...and available in a 15.
