Re audio xxx
 
this might be the wrong place to post this but i need opinions around the site good bad pros cons, and any sub that compares or is better in class than this sub. When i say better i mean i will be using a mojo 4kw at 1ohm as a daily driver i will be looking for sq and spl at the same time what do you all think? I will eventually have 3 of these and another amp just need some opinions.. oh yeah it will be a 12“ haha almost forgot that part.
Nothing but the greenesthaze

Re: Re audio xxx
 
Which year are you speaking of? For that power, I honestly suggest something else. Not saying that the newer XXX can't handle it, I'd just run something different. Especially 4000watts to a single driver. VERY few drivers can handle that much continuous power for a long period of time.

I'd personally run the newer Crossfire XS's or XS SPL's. The larger brother of the Crossfire XS SPL is the Ascendant Audio SMD, which seems to be a pretty capable driver.

i wont be giving it all 4kw but i will see what it can do. Thanks for the input, i will look into those crossfires and smd. Anyone else want to throw in some 2cents it will go a long way. Thanks

Re: Re audio xxx
 
The XXX was mainly built to be a louder daily oriented sub. 4000watts is a lot of power. Most people don't understand how much that really is.

You could even look into Digital Designs' 9500 series. I love mine. If you can get your hands on some, RD HW's are pretty decent.

Re: Re audio xxx
 
at 1ohm my amp can do 4kw rms, i just want a very nice sub to handle all that power ya know. I do like the look of digital design but its not all about look i guess all in what it can do. Does fi make a BTL 12“?

Re: Re audio xxx
 
If you want something to sound good, the XXX will definitely do that, plus it'll get ridiculously low. Like vegan said though, 4kw is an assload of power, be very careful running that much into any sub. The one big downside to the XXX is that they're HUGE space whores. They like to have massive boxes, but if you've got the space, I say go for it.

Re: Re audio xxx
 
i was thinking of inverting all 3 when that time comes of course, or dont the xxx like that too much? Well i have narrowed the field down to the XS-SPL12, Ascendant Audio - SMD 15 or the original xxx i would like some more reviews on the smd it looks insaine. Anyone own one of these bad mama jamas?

I am pretty badass!!!! I have good SQ and I can take that 4k!!!

Re: Re audio xxx
 
Give us some dimensions for where the enclosure will go. This way we can give you a better idea as to what you can physically fit.

RE_XXX 11-23-2010 05:16 PM

Re: Re audio xxx
 
I like big enclosures tuned very low! I have around 50 mm of xmax depending on which model of year you bought of me. I eat da lows

Re: Re audio xxx
 
lol @ ^^^^
Anyway i was thinking to start off with for the 1 xxx it would sit in a 3.5 - 4cu sealed just to try and i will have a ported box tuned to whatever the lowest it is said to hit is, i think it was 28hz? Ill double check. Anyway its come down to the xxx and the crossfire xspl v2. Think that will be enough cubes for the RE? i can always fit bigger i will get the full cu. Of my trunk tomorrow. 98 buick century if that helps anyone for now..

Re: Re audio xxx
 
if u havent installed that memphis 4k yet or purchased it..id look elsewhere also...cuz get ready for some serious electrical upgrades to power it..it is extremely power hungry...I know Ive owned one!

sri3850341 11-24-2010 05:54 AM

Re: Re audio xxx
 
if me and daily i would opt for 2 efficient drivers running 4k

greenesthaze 11-24-2010 09:15 AM

Re: Re audio xxx
 
Not here to talk about my amp i know what it needs i got a big alt batts and the big 3 already done... Im here to talk about the subs in discusion. Crossfire or xxx? Or anything that coild compare to these? Maybe 4 w7?

xseveredveganx 11-24-2010 11:20 AM

Re: Re audio xxx
 
I'd personally run 2 xxx 15's in that trunk with that much power. The one 4k should suffice for both drivers.

inferno3436 11-24-2010 11:43 AM

Re: Re audio xxx
 
agreed @ severe..I know initially he stated 12's..me personally Id do 15's over 12's and he stated spl & sound quality. And Im sure we are all in agreement on the xxx Has both covered..he also stated soon to be (3) woofers and another amp? and toward the end I read buick centry and Im like (1) xxx 15 would be hard enough @ 4 cubes..I cant see 2 15 xxx's in a 98 century :confused:

greenesthaze 11-24-2010 03:48 PM

Re: Re audio xxx
 
In regards to the 2 15’s i was thinking maybe but i would prefer 12’s or maybe 2 12’s and a 15? i have plenty of room i dont care about the back seats

cone size does NOT dictate frequency reproduction.. a 4" sub is very well capable as an 18" sub to produce the exact same frequencies.

greenesthaze 11-24-2010 05:42 PM

Re: Re audio xxx
 
negitive, a 12 has more frequency range than a 18 all day it can hit the lows thats for sure, your going to tell me a 4“ sub is going to hit the lows just like a 18“ sub can? Dont thinkso

Lol i think you need to take your stupid retarded self to the doc tell him you need a visectamy cause no one needs to listen to your loser comments.

well, your arguing and your wrong and you have a bad attitude.. enjoy your stay at ROE, and hopefully you will learn...

Re: Re audio xxx
 
nah its true bro 4's hypothetically are just as capable as playing the same frequencies. your talking about how loud it sounds when playing, and of course the 18 is gonna win that battle with all that extra cone area. but lets say 1 18 vs x number (equal to cone area of an 18) 4 inch woofers (both subs being the same) will sound about the same.

greenesthaze 11-24-2010 06:03 PM

Re: Re audio xxx
 
Really though? Thats not what my ears tell me. 12’s seem to hit highs better than 18’s but than again thats just me. I get the cone area but are my ears playin tricks on me?

150dbs 11-24-2010 06:12 PM

Re: Re audio xxx
 
i beleive people tune their 18's lower to be louder and move more air which depletes the ability to play the higher notes (of course it is all install dependent). and from my experience and definitely not a end all beat all factor but 12's are usually tuned a lil higher to compensate for inability to move as much air. once again my 2 pennies

150dbs 11-24-2010 06:16 PM

Re: Re audio xxx
 
its all in box and tuning
