Should I go with a 15" sub (probably a brahma) in a snail shell with a hifonics 1500d, or should I buy 2 other subs, (preferably $350 or less) and 2 hifonics 1500d's with a self-made box. Im not sure which would sound better/be louder.
those hifonics are overrated. I would go with something like a kx1200.1 or a bp1200.1. I cant really think of two subs off the top of my head that will beat a 15" brahma for less then 350$ i would go with the ss box.
hmm, you seen any good prices on the kx1200.1, and im not even sure what kinda sub the bp1200.1 is, but either way, have you seen any good prices for them?
KX 1200 is Kicker and the BP 1200 is JBL. They are both amps not subs. I would also recomend both of those if its in your budget over the Hifonics amps. If its all you can afford then Hifonics is the way to go. Best cheap power IMO. But do remember I said best cheap power not best power. Both of those amps mentioned by Nick are superior to the Hifonics.
