Loudest Single Subwoofer
What do you guys think the loudest single Subwoofer is. I have a few ideas.
1. The Kicker Solo X 18 Inch. 5,000 Watts RMS
2. MTX Jackhammer 22 Inch 6,000 Watts RMS
3. Earthquake Audio Holees 15 Inch 7,000 Watts RMS
4. SoundStreem XXX 18 Inch 10,000 Watts RMS
you looking to purchase? is sheer volume your goal? i know a guy that used a pair of peavey black widow speakers (pro sound reinforcement) in a homemade ported box. looked like flabby ass, but those speakers have something like a 98dB efficiency. i wont comment on SQ, but it does seem that the vehicle began leaking during downpours, whereas it was watertight before. they dont dip as low as virtually any "real" car-type sub, though.
i cant imagine a 22" sub could possibly sound good, or be accurate. there are threads about some of the subs you mention.
I'm not looking to buy any of those. Funny you should talk about Black Widows though. I have a 15 inch black widow in my car right now. I'm only giving it 150 watts RMS and it's louder than most stuff with twice the power. The sound is pretty good but it doesn't go as low.
probley not the mtx cuz its just big and can only pick up really low bass kicker prob not cuz i dont like square subs and sound streem sounds like a walmart brand so ill go with the earth quake cuz its sexy and big and sexy
I see a lot of Kicker subs at competitons and theyre usually the loudest.
you should check out the Termpro forum if your looking to get into SPL.
By the way i believe the loudest single sub in competition currently is the DD Z series. I believe their just a few db short of hitting the big 180 :). (ofcourse this aint no daily driver type system).
Other subs you might want to look inta are Fi, Cactus, Hifonic's new Maxximus, Atomic, T3, etc.
The World Record holder is hitting over 180 db with Pioneer SPL subs.
yep the upper-end Pioneers are supposed to be really good too :)

world record with an 18" DD is 180.5 pretty damn impressive for one sub
braaaains! zombie thread need brainssss!
i had a atomic apxx 4" coil on 6krms and it was really loud, was a daily driver. that sub is up there with the top single subs.
i would just do more subs than a single loud sub, its easier, usually more power handleing, more motor strength, more cone area
wow. i had an 12" and 15" RE Audio XXX ('05 model) and they both were stupid loud
