Default Quick Question

I plan to run 2 AP3k's or 4 AP18001D's powering 8 12's. Now my question is what 12's out of these two would you run? AQ SDC2.5's or American Bass Xd's?

The AQ's are rated more power but all i heard was good about AB and they are half the price of the AQ's. Such a hard decision and cost is very important.

Wont be buying the equipment for awhile, just need to know what im going to be running so i can build to suit.

Thanks guys.

No thoughts? Opinions? Other options in that price range?

Get better amps. Then subs to match the quality...

First, this post is about the subs not the amps.

and

Second, if you read the original post then you seen "cost is very important". Which is reasoning for the amps.

This is for a complete show vehicle, not competitions. Have spent and still am spending thousands more just on the truck. Just building something that looks cool and gets loud while on a budget. No wall.

agreed though i would look into slightly better amps, expecially for a show truck, you dont need to spend a bunch on amps, look for deals and get something of quality

I was looking into the obsidians, but they are even more than the AQ's which i really dont want to spend any more than the AQ's.

Dont need better amp because of it being a show truck. They dont judge by brand.


Here is a quick pic of the truck.

If cost is the issue, go with the cheaper of the two. If you're still on the fence, go with whichever will be cheaper! Def look into SA...

FWIH, those AQ's will take more power than they are rated.
