How 'bout a really generalized statement? The sub sounds great and can get really loud. You'll be happy with it if installed properly.

I dont think they sound great, they have a strange sound to them honestly... I prefer the ID Max over them in most instances...

with the XXX 12", does it have more SQ in a sealed compared to a ported? (is it worth it if its not accompanied by a slot vented box?)

and if so, how much of a "step down" is the level of loudness the sub can produce going from ported to sealed?...

Totally enclosure dependant.

so the enclosure built by awash and 1ofa is basically the best way to go to get the most out of the sub?

-qs
a sealed enclosure is gonna give you more low end output..and most likely a flatter curve then the box specs RE gives for the normal [email protected]

i had mine in 1 cube and sounded a LOT better then in the ported box.
i think my girlfriend is finally gonna let me impregnate her car with a system, and i've been having my eye on the XXX eversince 1ofaknd posted pics of his box build up... my truck is basically finished, and im very happy with the overall system (redtop batt, coaxils, and sub is kicker, amplifiers are both power acoustik, panansonic HU)...i wish i could have ran a different sub and maybe some comps, but i didnt want subs in the bed, and the cvr's mounting depth was perfect for the space i had...(i build the system so everything fit with everything, and nothing overwelmed anything else, everything is level)

her car will be my 3rd "bumper to bumper" system build up...im really aiming at sound quality so thats why i was thinking sealed...


1OFAKND, your saying that your 12" performed better in the 1cubed as far as sound quality was concerned right?

did you build the box to re-specs, or did you use a different box blue print?

im thinking her entire system will consist of (optima redtop, panasonic HU, polk-audio components for front and back, im tied between going directed or crossfire for the amp to components, and not sure on what amp to go with for the sub)

it wasn't quite as loud..but yea, i thought it sounded better.

and you won't be getting a xxx anytime soon, unless you find a used one or one from a dealer.

RE is comming out with the new line of XXX right??? thats fine, it gives me time to piece everything else together, i like to do the installs all on the same day instead of installing the comps today, then the sub next week, etc...

Where an you get them from I've been on every website rying to find a pair of 12's.
You have to call them and find out if there is a dealer in your area. If not you will have to order one from them direct. If your lookin for the XXX's your gonna be outta luck....... Like 1ofakind said, they are being revamped and wont be available for several months.
