sometimes quality overrides quantity... I haven't heard these in person but hopefully they provide clean bass instead of a bunch of really loud rattling
Agreed. You don't need even close to that much power to listen to your music. This is sound competition levels. Its 2000 RMS per sub and no, bass will not blow out your back window. Only high frequencies will shatter your glass. It has to do with atoms and resonant properties. If you ask, you get a long explanation. The resistance on these are so low! Be careful, thats how equipment burns out so fast.
Reprecussions - Loss of hearing and/or DTP violation.
You're gonna need a full farad cap, 4 gauge wiring (maybe 2, thats a lot of power). Don't even think of listening to your stereo with the car off without getting an Optima battery. For optimum clarity and kick, get a ground wire kit (if you don't have one already) and a voltage stabilizer, like a Sun Automotive Hyper Ground.
Ppl say a lot about the best subs. I take my information from CA&E magazine. "JL Audio 12w6v2 is the most linear subwoofer and best sounding subwoofer they've ever tested...PERIOD." Trust the experts, they know a lot about sound quality. You're looking for volume, so if you want your Audiobahn, go for it. I just hope the subs don't deteriorate as most do at high volumes. When you buy a sub, what you're paying for is the quality and construction of materials it was made from. You get what you pay for.
