If I were you, I'd have every reason to veer away from two 12s and veer into two 15s. Chances are, they won't need more than 1.5 cubic feet each.Amazing subs.
I'm glad to see they have added a 15" IDMax. It's about time!!
I doubt there will be any audible difference between any of them and the V.3 series however (which is good, but doesn't give me any reason to veer from the 12's I have now haha)
black basket? do not care
ease of manufacturing? has nothing to do with me haha = do not care
stiffer spider? cool
Well, not necessarily more power. Just because power handling is high, doesn't mean you won't bottom them out on far less power. Don't forget, those will likely be very high efficiency. Very strong motors and very low moving mass make for a very efficient sub. The IDQ15 in my trunk creates more music at less power than anything I have ever heard before.haha that would be awesome. However that means more power, more space, and then I'm going to have the itch to add in dual woofers up front, and its all downhill into the money pit from there.
two 12" v.3's will have to suffice
DC Audio doens't make anything that comes even close to the sound quality of IDQ and IDMax subs. In fact, very few things out there come close in any price point, and nothing can beat them in their price point. At just under $250 for an IDQ sub, you will not, I guarantee it, find any sub that can compete for sound quality.i would still never run them i will stick with mmats or dc audio dc audio deff and another good brand thats so cheap is american bass but great quality
Amen to that. Anyone who tells me otherwise knows very little about the science behind subwoofers and what it actually takes to make an incredible SQ subwoofer. There's a reason why I strongly support the IDQ V2 and V3 line both for SQ and for general purpose use. There's just nothing else like it out there. Two IDQ V2 10" subs can be had for $200 shipped (if you can find them that is), and will destroy anything at 2-3x their price for pure sound quality. I could go on for a long time. A few people on this board have heard my IDQ15 V2 and will vouch for how tight, accurate, and musical it is.why would you never run them?
the IDMax and IDq series are arguably some of the greatest car subs ever made
I have heard them, have designed boxes for them, and have been unimpressed by them. Feel free to use what you think is best, but I'm telling you what actually performs best from a sound quality perspective. Want to know what makes an SQ subwoofer?the dc lvl 3s with the carbon package even in to the lvl 4s with the carbon package are some of the most sound quality sounding subs there are so many other subs out there that are better than them,,, like i said i stick with mmats and dc audio, i would venture into american bass as theyh are almost unheard of no one really has them and are a great subs for quality and sq as well as spl depending on sub....
It is a little big.
