Anyone know anything on this 15 by Planet Audio?

75$ for a sub that can take this kind of power seems way to good to be true. Any ideas?

Just by looking at the specs they give you can tell its bogus. It's frequency response and sensitivity are both way higher than even a really good sub could hope for. It looks like walmart level garbage to me.

you get what you pay for. if you build a really good box. and set it up right it could sound alright. but is the sub any good? not particularly, dont know that I would say it is bad either. it is a 75 dollar sub.

that website sketches me out more than the sub does. I would be hesitant on giving my money to a company with such a poorley designed website.

What tuning would you guys recommend for a 12" RE Srx? Re's website suggests 35hz. ?

Depends on what you're going for, really. 35hz should be fine for most people's daily setups.

So instead of banging out my whole build at once, I think I'm going to have to do it in stages. It's too cold and I don't have time to completely re-wire everything at once.

Going from:

Quote:
CTX65CS components with the included passive crossovers
Amped by a JL 360/2
Stock rear speakers on HU power
to:

Quote:
CXS62v2 components
Hifonics HFXR active crossover
CTX6M (mids from the CTX set) in the rear speaker location
CXS mids powered by JL 360/2, tweeters by Arc FD2100
CTX6Ms powered by Pioneer GM5500t
I think at first I'm just going to throw in the HFXR and FD2100 to power the CXS set, then when I get time to rewire everything to my liking I'll throw the CTX6Ms in the back with the pioneer amp.

Unless I can trade my brother for a 4-channel he's got sitting in the basement, which would be ideal for space/wiring reasons

Got a head unit, and dash kit on the way. Box is being built soon too.

I'm excite.

Got my crossover working, installed it and added the amp for the tweeters.

I'm not gonna lie, I'm ****ing impressed. But I'm still contemplating throwing my old mids in the back.

So I found a psb subsonic 6i for $200. Holy ****. I seriously couldn't ask for anything more besides some more low end. But when it gets cranking, the entire house shakes. I am very pleased with my purchase.



That's an 11" remote for a size reference. It's the height of the arm rest on the couch.

Love PSB subs.

Might try putting it in the front of the room so it works better with your fronts. And if you don't have the room for it, make sure it's in phase with the fronts.

Yeah unfortunately I really don't have the room in the front, but the phase thing is a good tip.

I've only gotten to crank it for a little bit. Can't really go nuts at 2 am haha. But I'll be watching a movie or two tomorrow and really see what it can do.

Also, you're gonna have to delay that ***** a good bit.

protip: take your front channels to 0 delay, and delay everything to match them.

Couldn't find a place to mount these two amplifiers, so I settled on under the back seat. Hopefully I won't have problems with overheating in the summer, but we will just have to wait and see. Not super clean, but it's under a seat so who really cares?

Let me know what you guys think of me starting this series. Sorry for the low light, recorded at night. System contains 2 RD 15s in a Probox on a RE 1500.1

http://youtu.be/IDVqFJ0KAd0

Next build I'm thinking 4 Sundown E-15s. For 130$ you can't beat the performance. Going to try that sometime this year.

Let me know about the series though people!
