Whats the best sub for SQL for 500 bucks?
I was looking at a DD 3500 because I have heard nothing but good things about them. So, can anything beat that? I want to get 1 or 2 subs. Thanks.

i second the FI Q....also 2 SI BM's would be nice...a little over budget though.


the Q is being compared to the old XXX in SQ and a bit louder in SPL on a LOT of forums. and from Scott himself...i think he would know. lol:-)

The Q is great in SPL, but SQ isn't what was expected. Also,don't expect them to be low monsters. They lack in that area. DD or SI is way to go.

winning what? lol

i have tlaked to many people about the CompX's...and the most common response i get is "yeah, they are nice...nothing special though"

i seem to doubt they are as nice as i thought...and affter reading a review on CA&E about the CmpX that was given 1500wRMS....i am not thinking the Compx's are as loud as you claim chauncey....but they are supposed to sound..CRYSTAL clear as they say. lol

can you tell me more about how loud they are? i have only heard one XXX 15" and it was loud....but if the Q is louder, and sounds just as good...i am not seeing the price tag on the CompX either...maybe i am not seeing the whole picture here....someone enlighten me!!! lolol

damn how loud did i say it was???

it isnt as loud as the 05 XXX(almost) but sounds better and is more efficient....
and whats wrong with the price???loll

The msrp is around $800..around the same as other subs that would compare...just because u can get it cheaper doesnt knock the sub...from being a great 1....
