Massive Audio Dmx 12. $450 shipped and will hit hard as hell. Many people over on termpro use them, and they are said to have right around the same amount of output as a Re MT of the same size. That just gives you an idea of how loud they will get.
I know people have hit in the mid 150's with the Dmx subs before. So I don't know if the Apxx would walk all over it. They are both probably very capable SPL drivers, but still mid 150's isn't an easy task for anyone to do. Even with great equipment.
my brother my friend from the shop that i work for he got a single dmx 15 inch in a 6.5 cb ft and hes is pulling around 155.6 with i think he got 3000 rms to it and my cousin has a single 15 inch apx hes hittin 157 with 3000rms (two orions 2500d strapped)
Well if the guy is looking for the best SPL sub for $400, chances are he isn't going to have the money to give that sub enough power to get full output. Most people don't spend $400 on a sub, then spend $1000's on amps to power the sub.
Hey Showrides since you spoke of them... do you know of any single amp that could power 2 Massive Audio DMX 15's ?I was thinking of a SS XXX6500-D but I just recently heard they are of poor quality.lilrob so by you saying those subs can handle 20k RMS does that mean anything besides durability? I would imagine those subs starting to sound like crap after a certain amount of power goes through them or do you get an insane amount of db?
Well as far as an amp goes. You are going to want something that puts out around 5000rms. The soundstream 6500d will put out plenty of power, and many of the times they are amazing amps. I know a couple people who had problems with them, but after talking to soundstream, they said they fixed all the problems with them. And since they I haven't noticed them breaking. So it would be an option if you decided to get 2 of the dmx subs.
well im gonna be honest my brotehr i dont like dmx they sq is just like audiobahns but with much more spl, u can get the regular apocalypsis and it will get loud as the dmx but wiht more sq, i dont know if is still there but in ebay theres was a regular apocalypsis with the paperwork that the dude wwas hittin 147 with a regular apocalypsis and with 1k rms
my brother the dmx has ok sq but its not that great it gets loud as fak but its not too impressive but if ur going with the dmx good luck, and if u like spl go for it if u like sq go with something else
Yea...I do agree his typing and spelling are just terrible.But oh well,maybe he should try spending time learning how to read/write/type and lay off the car audio world for a little bit.No offense lilrob.Just some advice.
Ben, "The owner of Low-Hz.com actually made this account on ecoustics"
But now his company has switched over to more of a rep system, instead of him personally going around telling people about his subs/amps. I am actually a rep for Low-hz.com, and a few other companies as well. And being a rep for not only Low-hz, but SI as well, I know a thing or two about the mags. And would recommend them to anyone who is interested in since I do they think are the best SQL driver available to date.
whats the point of having a system that plays louder than 120 db cuz if you listen to it for more than a half hour at 120 u wont b able to hear anymore haha. and the human threshold for pain is about 110 db so i dont get it.
I thought the threshold for pain was 130DB?I could be wrong on this,correct me if so.Besides there is lots of points to having a system that plays louder than 120db.After listening to sounds at 120 you could be partially deaf and need sound at a higher DB to hear it or you could be a competitor in SPL.Last thing I can think of is the feeling you get from the pressure achieved at higher decibles,although I think you can produce the pressure levels for shaking things without the db.But in my experience high db comes with high pressure as a side effect .Correct me if I'm wrong,please.
At first, I didn't understand it either. Why listen to music so loud it hurts? Well, think of it this way. There are alot of people out there who drive cars and ride bikes that go in excess of 180mph. They don't go EVERYWHERE at 180, just when it's fun/possible. To create a setup capable of dbs that are harmful, allows the user to experience music from the setup at much lower and safer dbs with increased impact. To go flat out on anything long enough is just destructive, and stupid. My exwife used to scold me for chirping the wheels on my 88' Iroc. I'd look at her and say "It's got a 350, every once in awhile, I use it!"
True. but still why more than 140 then i mean thats just stupid. my ex girl friends dad is a doctor and he claims that 140 bd can make anyone go def in under 3 minutes exposure! you can get the same feeling by installing aura bass shakers it might not be as much but in sure it will do justice paired with a decent sub.
Higher pitched sounds have a diff. effect than low bass sounds, they'll ruin your hearing faster. So yes with high pitched NOISE 110-120 does start to hurt ur hearing, but lower BASS will not have the same affect. Im not saying it doesnt hurt ur hearing, but most doctors make that claim based on higher pitched noise.
Oh yea, and as for a sub, y not try a DD 3515, its a great SQL sub, muddy can tell you about em more than me, but i think itll b right at 400 prolly. It will get really loud tho, depending on the install i bet you can get into tha 140s. Muddy said hes in the mid 130s with 1 3510.
