dumb question....there is a bunch of good subs and im sure if you take like 3 seconds you can find this exact same post...but it all comes down to preferance and cost...now maybe if you would have stated how much you have to spend and maybe a preferance in brand(either or) maybe we can help you..
DUDE. Your setup is all ready for spl anways. I would add like 10 more Audiobahn's though. And 5 more batteries. Better add more caps. Caps caps caps. What the heck is an alternator anways? I took mine out, my car runs off solar panels, they look more p.i.m.p, and they ave chrome trim. Thar ya go G'
I keep hearin about Digital Designs and one of my friends won the italian Db Drag Championship 2 yrs ago with a 3500. joe u right abouth the chrome stuff, that's pimpin s**t! But with the setup I have, and it's good here in italy coz just think that a 15" Audiobahn Immortal costs more than $1500 and the A2300HCT amp costs $2300 so dont judge me DUUUUDE....if u got an advice a appreciate it, but im not here to be fooled by someone who dont know s**t. Thanks
yeah plus i spent $1500 for the head unit, another $800 for the speakers, then $300 for the digital bass processor and anothe $200 for the capacitor. Just to let you know i already made the conversion from Euro....1 Euro = $1,32, well thanks Hunter i'll try with the MT, hope i'll do more DB than the Immortal...in my eclipse I did only 144,3 db with no dynamat or somethin, so i want to reach a better level. Thanks Joe and James, you guys opened my eyes, you are my light...LMAO!
yeah I got a audiobahn sub just to try it out and gave it to my little brother two days later. I was very unimpressed and they have been on my garbage list ever since. Like Joe said as long as you learn from it. The MT will be incredible for you if you have the power to run it but in strict SPL burps. That sub is not a daily driver sub if you want that get the REXXX. Good Luck!
i started with a small 8" Coral, than a 15" Cerwin Vega, then a 15" Magnat and now this 15" Audiobahn, but no really high DB. 144,3 aint enough so i was tryin to find something better that might help me to reach 150DB. So i was thinkin about DD. But if u guys think that MT is good i'd try with that. Do u know where I can get one online? Dont really care about the money, i just wanna be sure to buy the best one they have. Thanks
hey you know what, you guys can go screw your selves, he can be competitive with that audiobahn sub. let me ask you guys what competitions you've ever competed in? this guy is in italy and hes bustin butt to make his car loud, i know, we've emailed eachother a few times.
keep the fricken immortal for now, i told you you just need different amps, e-mail me bro
before anyone goes talkin smack about abahn, i want you to back up your statements by beating a 153db on a TermLab mic with two 12"s, thats what number i did with 2 12" 1208 audiobahns. you start putting up numbers in the 150's and i'll listen to your opinions on wether or not audiobahn is loud, until then, stop hatin on somethin you dont even know about. (btw, to who ever feels this concerns them, dont bother writing about how you know audiobahn because you had one and it blew up or some other lame excuse, point is you probably had a cheapy model) hell, i've got one 10" AW1005X in an explorer that does a 141 all day strong
**clap** **clap** **clap**...want a cookie??? nobody said that audiobahns couldnt hit 150..they just simply said there is better out there..especially if he is paying 3 grand for audiobahn...chill out smoke a blunt and get over it...but after that post i might go buy stock in kleenex for all the f*ckin crying your doing.
hahahahahahaha! yeah zack if you go and read what most of us are syaing its not that Audiobahn (garbage in my opinion) wont get loud because it will it just sounds like sh!t doing it. If all he wants is to compete then so be it but if he wants any sort of SQ out of this sub for a daily driver then it is Awfull IMO and not to mention the fact that he way way overpaid!
he's not retarded for thinking audiobahn will get loud...you are..lol..hes only asking if it will...you are the one insisting that it is great equiptment....and people are allowed to have opinions...thats all you hear people saying..the immortal will get loud but other than that audiobahn is garbage...yep garbage..hahaha..now write your little post back to me on how awesome audiobahn is so i can read it and laugh...and then ill take your mom out to dinner...see what happens when you write arrogant posts???now how about we drop the issue of audiobahn sucking cause there has to be atleast 40 or 50 posts that already say it...why dont you and your audiobahn butt buddys start a forum???theres an isea huh...then you all can be happy and nobody will bash it.
1) SPL subs 101. Don't require huge linear excursion, and don't really require the best build quality. Sooner or later, SPL subs get destroyed. If you can conjure up a cheaper sub that will hit a high SPL, it's better than spending thousands on an exotic sub that you'll beat to death. I'm sure you'd rather rag out an Escort than a Bentley. Audiobahn subs may not be the best out there or your top choice for a subwoofer, but they do get loud when setup properly. As far as him "overpaying", by our standards he will overpay for any American equipment since he's in Italy. A RE MT, DD 9500, and others will be very expensive, more so than the Audiobahns.
2) SPL competition is different than everyday SPL. Everyday SPL relies on higher linear excursion in order to produce good SPL over a wide bandwidth, and are put in typical enclosures such as sealed and low-tuned ported. SPL subs don't have to drop down to 20 hz, most are tuned in the 60s-70s with a bandpass filter, and they pack power on the sub at that frequency. Ported and bandpass type enclosures exert huge mechanical control on a sub at and around the tuned frequency, so that sub with 40+mm x-max isn't even going to see half of it's capabilities, especially at that high frequency. So what is important? Power (motor strength + amplifier power), surface area, control, and thermal power handling. You have to have an enormous amount of amplifier power to hit high numbers, pushing the sub to even more excursion (still not close to X-max) and get some more SPL out of it.
Rob, in all honesty you're making yourself look like a dumba$$. Zack knows more about SPL than you could ever dream of. No Audiobahn isn't the best built equipment, but it does get loud. You just don't see it recommended in daily driver setups as much because they tend to be unreliable (especially low-end models). Most people are looking at the cheap models, so that's why it's recommended against. If you're a SQ listener, you're probably not interested in hitting 150s anyway, nothing sounds good at 150db. Until you propel those Type R's you have into the 150s, you may as well shut up as this is totally out of your league.
