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)

There'* my 50 cents.

Beat it at what? There are way too many factors to compare here, nothing is the best at everything. Price, SPL, Sound quality, responsiveness, sensitivity, power handling, what kinda box they fit in. What do you want to do with this sub?
