galactic needs to lay off that.

for the past few weeks galacticmonkey has been the official type-R putdown spokesman, he talks bad about them in almost every thread remotely related to them like there the worst things in the world, yet he ran three himself, and ive seen his videos, they didnt look that bad to me

i did type Rs on hifonics brutus amps... it was ok, but if you use cheap equipment, thinking its more than it is, thats when you're dissapointed. there are exceptions, where some cheap stuff is nice, like comp VRs and some PA amps.

i finally coughed up the money and bought subs which i really liked, but i still had the cheap amps, and because of that my score and loudness suffered.

at last ive decided on this project to go and save over months and months and buy quality equipment.

moral of the story: you get what you pay for. if something seems too good to be true, like a huge Power amp for cheap, it is. quality costs money.

edit for jo0es: i really didnt like my Rs that much. i had my gains set appropriately, and even then those things couldnt take a bx1605D for more than 5 minutes to save its life. anything that was low, below 25hz they would just bottom out. imo, they are nothing special at all. if people run them and like them, good for them... really. for a budget sub, they are decent, but not the be-all-end-all woofer everyone makes them out to be. anyways, back on topic.

why am i getting the role eyes?

my treos i could slam anything to em, as loud as i wanted and they would never bottom out. im sure that had to do with not having much Power to them, but id go 10hz full tilt and they would just play it.

Some subs are built so they cant bottom out mechanically. Im not sure about Treos, though.
