im selling my 15" clarion with the crap box its in for $170 bought it for $200 new 2 years ago. kid said he'd give me 170. so i want to get all new. amp, HU, subs and all. i want to know the best biggest sub i can get for around 200. i dont want to get used all that much... its going in a chevy astro, so its got to push some air. im looking to get 2 or 3. but thast going to be over a bit of time... any suggestions? i dont care weather its sq or spl. just some thing that i can use every day.
id get from my top 5 i would want: (im not too sure on prices either) Si Mag around 350-400 i think Re Audio Sx 600-650 (ebay it for sometimes 200-300) DD Audio 3515 ( 350-400 ) Crystal comp 15 ebay them for 200-300 Fi Btl 400-450 Fi Q 375ish those are my favs right now not overpriced (except for new re products )
ive had them all man. dont get 3 15's for 200 apiece. spend a little extra and get the 2 kicker 15" l7s. they run on average 320$, but can find for less. also these 15 l7s hit like 18 inches because of there square. also maybe the 12" l7s. hit like 15's, quality sub and definately push air.
ok, im doin area of a circle at school in math and this is how we calculate it... for a fifteen it pi times the radius squared =176.63" squared. and for an 18 its same formula but the result is 254.34" squared. i see quite the difference... or maybe im just tought wrong. im not all that conserned about it any ways. i dont want to make a box that will take up the hole van for some 18's. 15's will be good. probably cant get quality 18's for around 200 too often any ways.
Don't do a 3 sub setup, do two 15's and spend 300ish on each subwoofer and that'll be great. Instead of getting 3 somewhat nice but not as great 200 dollar subs and THEN, have a weird ohm configuration because you have a 3 sub setup, where as you can spend 300 each on two better quality subwoofers and have a good ohm load depending, and getting the most out of your amp. Get my drift? if not then ok =).
i get your drift... im still diggin the fi ssd's. when i get my social insurance number, so i can get my income tax back, im going to invest in a vehicle, then get my old job back and start on the system. thanks for the info guys.
im not going to competitions or any thing. just need some thing with some pound for every day. you guys are givin me top of the line stuff. nothing wrong with that, its fittin my price range. im stickin around 200 still. so i see the Fi SSD for $209 and the Treo TSI for $220... now that difference isnt alot to worry about... what more should i lean more to? the tsi handles 300 rms, and the Fi handles 800 rms. i like the look of the Fi a bit more, but appearance isnt every thing. i think i might go with the Fi... what do you's think?
From my experience I would recommend you that SSD. My friend just got a 15" Q and it pounds in a ported 4 cubic foot box tuned to 33hz. I have an RE SX and I love it. RE and Fi are kind of the same thing but Fi subs are improved from the RE's from what I've read. I can't speak for Treo since I've never heard any of their subs but I've read they are very good.
