Default Well I blew my first sub...

cant say im too pissed since ive been wanting to change my build but i need something in the meantime!!! Do you all think I should buy a cheapo 8 or 10 in a box off craigslist or go all out and buy a box/subs off craigslist. OR should I just wait and buy another 15 when I get the chance

for anyone wondering I had a sa15 and I decided to up the bass on the head unit even though I know im not supposed to

Damn, i forgot I made this topic haha. But anyways yeah the bad boost on the HU wa at 2 and the db increase was at +3. I knew it wasn't gonna be a great idea but it seem like it was getting pushed that hard. There was no distortion that I heard. The gain was moderately high i guess. I dont have any way of actually finding the wattage.

I went ahead an bought a 10 inch GR gravity sub in a tube off Craigslist. I haven seen much about it but it's supposedly rated at 1400rms but it's a D4 off my 1200 so less than 900 for sure. It gets kinda loud, but I went from a 15 to a 10 so maybe it's better than most. No idea. Tell you why though it's got some really good SQ I think. I may try to sell it on here once I get that 15 in the future.

I have no plans on a recone mainly because I'd rather not try and fix it myself, but also because I wanna upgrade. I may try to sell the sub as is on here or take it apart and sell motor/basket, that's something I can easily do.
