 yet another question

right now i have a full rf system and am pissed at them. i have 2 power 15's w/400 watt rms amp to each plus a 25 farad cap. two weeks, two blown subs. looking for new subs, leaning towards spl over sq. not wanting total crap sq though. this for a daily driver. when shopping for spl subs what specs are most important? what specs are overrated or decieving? all input is needed and appreciated.

uh...not be a smart ass...but if your main goal is spl shouldnt you be looking at bigger amp?s? it doesnt matter if your woofer is 25000kwtts...if your amp is pushing 400rms to each woofer that is what you will get.

im not much of an spl kind of guy so i cant help you much there, but 400rms per sub your not into spl category yet...your still couple of watts lower to get into that zone...

woofers that ive seen performing great at those power levels and prices, well kickers cvr & L5s, alpine typer R...JBL Power series

also it is very strange to blow both subs...one...ok bad woofer...2...is too much

i would tell you to check your gains and your system because something damage those woofers and it will damage the next set as equal.

You can blow a subs by pushing the amp into distortion, which creates too much power, which blows the sub. Sounds like you may be pushing those 400 watt amps to the limit and killing your subs as a result. As already mentioned, you're probably going to want to step up in power, and make sure you have subs that will handle the power, because it sounds like you are asking more of your equipment than it can deliver.

Two blown subs in two weeks typically = user error, not problems with the product.

Improper gain, improper bass boost, etc.
