Audio (and aftermarket electronics) This is your place for alarms, remote starters, to brag about your system, exaggerate your db levels, or simply ask questions for stock or aftermarket audio. No Flames! (except from roasted amps)

I know for a fact some companies do make 6x9 subs. They're not very popular, but they'r eout there.

I think that Lanzar sub could get louder than your Fi sub, but as mentioned before, the Fi would probably be more accurate.

Not that it should matter. Anyone who sits there arguing about who'* sub is "better" obviously has nothing better to do.

lol, no. Just saying, if you're happy with your sub and how much you paid for it, there'* no reason telling someone that its better than theirs. There will always be someone out there with a better sound system than ours. Someone who has more money or worse priorities than you do. I know of people who drive a $60k Mercedes yet live in a shack. If you're happy with what you have and it sounds great, then that'* all that matters.

In my case, I wasn't happy with what I had. I would listen to my 15" Hifonics sub in the car, then get home, turn on my home theater downstairs with a single 10" sub, and I would be in audio heaven by comparison. I got to the point where I dreaded listening to music in my car simply because the actual sound quality of that sub listening to anything but rap/hip hop was aweful. It had nothing to do with anyone else'* sound system, I just wasn't happy with it.

Will my two ID subs sound better than your Fi sub? You bet. Will they be as loud? Hell no, but that'* not what I'm going for. Does it even matter? Nope.

That'* why I said it wasn't a totally fair comparison. If and when I re-cone the SSD I'll probably stick it in a ported box and see how it sounds. I doubt it'll sound as nice as my Sundown, though. That sub is loud, but still so accurate and clean.

Everytime I hear you talk about that Z it makes me want one sooo bad, but i'm not on that level yet.....but Sundown does have a 1000 watt rms X-12 coming out soon

Yeah, they're going to have a 600w x-8, and then then 1000w x-12, x-15 and x-18.

And I've heard lot'* of good things about DC Audio amps, my boy used to have a DC 3k and he raved about that thing, said it'* the best amp he'* ever owned and that dude goes through car audio gear like we do underwear. That'* the one piece of equipment he regrets getting rid of, and he HATES DC Audio. They're coming out with a 2.5k next month, and a 4ch and some higher powered amps too. I'm gonna see what'* up with that 2.5k, if it'* reasonable I think i'm gonna have to ****** one up.
