the soundstream tarantula is a good sub.
comparing it to an L7 isn't saying much really as I'm not a big solobaric fan anyway.
I still prefer my RE triple X subs to be honest, but there's a big difference in price there too.

the cerwin-vega stroker and stroker pro are good subs, too.
great for SPL events but very touchy about being in just the right box to work to their peak performance.
They also like a lot of power.

an SPL of as little as 156dB can stop the human heart. Keep that in mind when you turn the stereo up really loud in a confined space.

THANX GLASS, but when u talk about price difference, waht are we talking about. is it worth it getting 3 10 tarantulas rather than 2 x.xx for the price or even 3 12's for two 12" re's

well, the triple X 12" is $369 plus shipping.
weighs 60 lbs.
I think my pair ran about $420 each shipped from RE.

not cheap subs, but they have an Xmech of 3", 38mm one-way Xmax.
they get very loud, and crystal clean clarity.
they do like to have at least 1,000 watts RMS each though

Hey glass, how you running them? I saw on your site you had AP on the system layout picture. Did you do the membrane in front or behind the cone? Just curiosity. I found a car from a guy today and I think it's the one :-) 1970 Fairlane, all original, burgundy. Package tray is HUGE, I could probably squeek 3-4 subs AP back there.

membrane in front, but I'm playing around with sealed boxes at the moment too.
trying two fiberglass enclosures tucked back into the rear sections behind the wheel wells.
conserving useable space

still messin around with everything

Thanks. I'm contemplating a lot of things. I was thinking front mounted membrane if I do AP, simpler to install and it'll couple better, and cut 2nd and 3rd order harmonics. I guess I'll have plenty of time to think it out saying $$$$ is a factor right now. I found an Arc dealer in Savannah, gonna call them up and see if they have the Rainbows I want to demo, I'm kinda wondering about the new Eclipse components too. I'm not too sure about them though, website says they now have a titanium tweeter, which is usually ugh in my book. Never know, though.

My brother closed the shop bout 2 months after I left, he had finished school, supposed to be getting a job in HR soon. We had been suffering this year cause of all the jobs lost in town, plus he was getting tired of audio in general. All you'll find there is some Italian restaurant named "The Brick Oven", at least that's what the rumor is. Should be good food, though :-)

I wish he'd kept it open long enough for me to get the system for the Fairlane, it would have been nice to get some Esotars at cost, and an Eclipse head unit and Ti subs. Oh well.
