So, I want to start a running page where I will update subs into the first post every once in awhile, this way to help as a reference for people like me that have dove into doing a first build, seen tons of information out there, but get buried in the nuance. It is always nice to have a quick reference. I’ll get a spreadsheet together in a month or so and post it with T/S values listed (along with a zip file containing the data) after that. Also, I plan to incorporate impressions of subs by those that have used them in a comments section of my spreadsheet and attribution of the comment so that people can short hand it.
12″ subs (focusing on ones I’ve considered)
CSS SDX 12 (this is an XBL^2 driver licensing the patent, which is what Adire used to (and the reboot company) use)
Scan-Speak 30W-4558T00 (my current top pick; great response at 150W RMS, and Scan-speak has a known quality)
RSS315HF/A (good driver to hit deep bass, although some complain at quality of mid-bass; still well regarded)
RSS315HO – can fit small boxes, benefit like CSS SDX
Peerless XXLS 830845 – good luck finding one of these at this moment (5/5/21), pretty much import only at this point, but esteemed for the sound
