I've been out of the Subwoofer game for I dunno 9 years ish, I actually can't believe I still have an account here ha!
Last time I was posting around here GLASSWOLF was the ultimate Sansei in the car audio forums..... But I need to know what's up
So anyways I need a sub to go in my Infiniti G37 Coupe. I go to a local car audio shop in Mass, and talk to a guy about subwoofers, installs, etc. He asked me what amp I had, and told him it was an old school OG Orion 1200D that was awesome and pushed 1200 WRms @ 1 ohm. He laughed at me and said Orion is junk and that amp maybe it pushes 700 watts. - First bad sign
So then we get into subwoofers. He said name some of the brands you're looking at, so I tell him: Digital Designs, Resonant Engineering, Ascendent Audio, Sound Solutions, FI Audio, and then said I heard DC Sounds are getting popular - (he told me DC sounds is junk from China) and then.... He tells me that all those brands I listed are JUNK now and were popular in the 80'-90's. He said the technology has advanced and proceeded to show me a JL 10w1 in a prefab box for my car for $1,300 lol ??????
I was then told Rockford Fosgate, JL, MTX are the big dogs and all the underground subs from when I was into car audio are garbage now.
1. Did I go off the deep end? Do all my OG Brands actually suck now and JL/Rockford Fosgate etc have really stepped up their game and are just more 'technologically advanced?"
2. This lil gangsta punk is on meth/crack?
3. Not a question but I'd like any advice from some OG Car Audio Ninja's that really know what their car audio :
Car - 2012 Infiniti G37 Coupe
Amp - OLD School Orion 1200D ...1200 Wrms @1 ohm
Sub - *****Need Input***** looking to spend around $3-400 on 1 Sub ...or ~$500-600 on 2 subs if 2 10" underpowered subs would be better idea? ... i like my amp
Sound Solutions 10" Icon
10" DC sounds Level 4
10" Ascendent Audio Havoc
Box - Prefab 1 10" sealed 1 cuft chamber or 2 10" prefab .5 cuft per chamber built for my car - don't have time to build one.
****Prefer 1 subwoofer setup****
Previous System 2007-8 ish in a Truck with no back seats:
Subs: 2 15" Digital Designs 9515's 6 cuft ported box
Amp : Orion 1200D (yes under I know underpowered severely but HOLY SCHNITZEL WAS THIS SYSTEM LOUD AND I LOVED IT lol)
Any advice from some OG Ninja's or people who really know what their talking about?
