Default Best sub for < $300 (nuthuggers welcome)

In case you haven't seen it on FB, I'm doing a 12" sub roundup of some lesser known brands. But I need a "control" that's a more popular sub. Something most people can relate to.

Already in my posession...

- Sinister Soundz
- FU Audio
- UPA Audio
- RD Audio
- Pure Audio
- DSS Ethos

So, what's it gonna be?

I'd imagine the infamous SA12. It has a solid reputation to test against.

Yeah. The SA is definitely at the top of the list. For some reason I kinda wanted to save that one for an SA vs XFL shootout later, but it may end up being one of those anyway.

It's basically the benchmark 2.5" coil sub.

why not throw a L7 12, or if you have to a cvx12

and i agree the sa12 is just about the end all budget 12
hard to beat for the price and even without getting price involved its still have to beat.

what rd sub?

idk if they fit the price but alot of B2 and ground zero have never been tested like this.
it would be cool to see some of the mainstream subs up there though
rf t1/t2, type aarrrrrrrr, kicker, memphis (entry level), maybe a JL w3, MTX 7500/8500,
im sure a bunch of people around here have most of these

Ideally... I'd like to include allllll of those. But this shit is going to take forever as it is, so I need to narrow it down to one that most can agree on as a "measuring stick", so to speak.

But the JL and Alpine are good ideas.

And it's the RD Sonance. Although... I may have to include an Alpha.
