Anyone had Polk Audio DXi124's??

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to order 2 DXi124's and i'm wondering if they're good, I want something that hits hard but i'm not worried about competition level. I'm going to build a custom size box, I have plenty of room, these are going in an Xterra. I will also have an Optima Yellow Top as well as 2 660 Watt Polk Audio amps and a One Farad Capacitor. At first i was going to get 2 12" CVR Kickers and the zx1500.1 amp, but i'm trying to save some money. For some reason no one ever buys them because I've never had a customer bring some in for installation and i cant find many reviews or videos online about them.

They are equivalent to polk's db series if that means anything to you. I have one although i'm not currently running it. Had it in an enclosure not really designed for it and ran it for roughly a week. Sounded alright at lower volume but lost a little composure when driven hard although the enclosure was probably wrong for the sub. I was using 2 cubes tuned to 35 . Seems like it would have done better in a smaller box. Cone got outta control real quick.

You're not? How much would be paying for either?

Yeah i figured they would be.

 

polk was not that loud even for what it was. If your going for loudness over sq I'd take the cvr's

 

I would still like great sound quality but i know ill get that from the kickers as well.

Well I'm an autotech for bestbuy, so i get a discount but its a secret :)

Just figured id give yall an update. I went with 2 12" Kicker CVRS, dx 1000.1 and a few other things. I decided against polk audio, ive heard a lot better reviews on all kicker products anyway.

I don't know if this is helpful, but I just bought the single voice coil version of the DXi124 for use in a home subwoofer [vented box of about 2.7 cu. ft. tuned to about 29 Hz and a 200 watt amp pushing it]. I was looking for seriously deep bass instead of hard pounding and high decibels. It works as intended and more. It's as if that what I don't hear I can feel it. This affect makes itself known on pipe organ and movie soundtracks.

      So I recently purchased 4 Polk Audio DB652's for my 2012 Subaru Impreza (with a stock in-dash stereo). I like them but I wanted more out of them so I purchased a Pioneer D9605 5 channel amp. I chose this amp because I wanted to see more output from my current 4 door speakers and a sub woofer that I am planning on getting (Rockford Fosgate P3D4 12"). I feel like I got my amp without being well informed on other factors and was wondering what some great car enthusiast think of my purchases and car audio goals. Ask any questions that I would need to further clarify to help y'all help me!  Also, are the Polk door speakers I got that great?
      All help and recommendations are very much appreciated!!!
      P.s. I don't have a large knowledge of car audio if it isn't yet obvious.

      I have been doing retail for 18 Years now i set up a site for our company to make extra money off internet sales. What we do is sell a memberships for less then $20. Then we let the customer order his system for his car at our dealer pricing. It saves the customer a bundle and we are reaching out to customers we normally would never have. I just wanted opionions on this do you think it will work? Is it a good idea?

      im just going to list what i have, and you guys can leave any comments, suggestions, tips etc u want.
       
      i have a 04 dodge ram 1500, now for audio stuff....i have all new speakers n tweeters, a kenwood KDC-MP342U headunit, Kenwood KAC-8105D 1000w amp, 1 alpine type r 10", and a ported box.
       
      alright, now i like what i have, but i have always wanted a system that would rattle my truck and be loud enough to make other cars around me shake a bit lol. but i know that cant happen with what i have. i have read a lot that the sub i have needs a lot of power, but it seems to not be getting enoigh still. i dont have much room in my truck, but i want to get another type r 10 so i have 2, and get a bigger box for them. do you think this will help improve the sound of my system. oh and i know i will need a new amp. but thats not a problem right now. thanks for any help

      Hi i was wondering if anyone could help me....
       
      i have a pioneer ts-w308 D4 12" sub runnin at 2 ohms.
      My amp at 2 ohms only pushes out 265 wrms and at 1 ohm pushes out 500 wrms
       
      i want to either change the sub to a ts-w308 D2(to run at 1 ohm) or add a 2nd ts-w308 D4(bringing both the subs to 2 ohms then bridging them to run at 1 ohm)
       
      please advise me on which would be a better option and how much louder would it be to run 1 1ohm sub instead of two 2ohm subs..
       
      TS-W308 D4/D2 (450wrms subs)
       
      thnx alot excuse my english and my questions for i am a noob at this:confused:
