Hey all, I have a quick question, I am considering getting rid of my two 10 inch subs for one 15 inch, and am looking at either the Orion H2 or C/V Stroker 15 inch. Have not heard anything bad about the Stroker, but am not real familier with the Orion. Any suggestions?
i would get the h2, it looks better and i think it has better sound guality than hte stroker, both are stupid loud subs but i think you would be a little happier with the h2, i just bought the 15" h2 and i am totaly satisfied with it. my neighbor sold his 15" stroker a long time ago and from what i remember i think that the h2 has a bit more sq. remember all this is just one persons opinion.
Two 15" CompVr's would sound really nice. Make just you push them with a good amp that puts out a lot of clean power. If you don't the subs will blow easily because they don't seem to like bad quality amps very much.
Thanks again Wahl, I am kind of undecided as of now, the Orion I was looking at on eBay is sold, I did not bid on it. Going to save my $ and sit back for a while. Will probably go with two 15's just to be safe as the two 10's I use now are not near enough of the kick in the butt that I am looking for. WIll keep your advice on the Comp Vr in mind. I have a Memphis ST500 now but will probably get rid of that and move up to an ST1000 to push the two 15's. Thanks again for your input.
I recently got a Memphis 500 and it is pushing my Memphis 12. It hits pretty hard for my music type (house music and drumnbass type stuff) but I wanted a bit more.... Should I go with 2 10's? I orignally was going to get 2 JL 10's but my friend was out of them and recommended running 1 12?
Kyle, I am certainly no expert here but will give you my opinion as to my system so far. I too have a Memphis 500 and have run it with two Bazooka 10 inch, two Cerwin Vega 10 inch, then just today I replaced the subs with one 12 inch Bazooka 12 inch, the P Miller. This is not suppossed to be a great sub but I tell you what, it hits harder than the two tens, either the Bazooka or the C/V. THis is just a temporary situation for me, as I plan to get a REALLY good quality sub like a JL 7 that I see everyone talking about, but for now, the 12 inch P Miller will do. I know it is all about quality, perhaps two 10 inch really good subs would do better than the one 12 inch I have now, but I can honestly tell you that the one 12 is better than the two 10's that I had. Hope this helped, at least we have the same amps to compare this stuff
Mike, Thanks for reply. So I hear lots about this JL 7 too...? Would our Memphis amp handel this powerful sub? Would it be 500-600? RMS to the sub? If you think it would be no problem for the amp, I may start saving my pennies for one too!
Yep, swan is right the 500 Memphis is 500x1 at two ohms, but is only 250 at 4 ohms, so best bet is to get it hooked up to one sub at two ohms so it is using its full power. I am thinkin' of going with a ST1000 or maybe 1500 in the future, that way I know I will have enough power to drive a HIGH quality sub. From what I see here the really, really, good ones are the JL W7, Orion H2, Strokers, RE , Adire Brahma, and JBL GTI something or other. I am sure I have left a few out but the REAL good ones tend to cost over 300 bucks for a single 12 inch. BUT, with a good power amp I take it one of those will sound better and louder than two crappy 15 inchers......
