600$ for 2 of them

supposedly do 2300rms at 1ohm, mine are at .7 each so should be close to 2300 if not over, now strap them and that would at up to almost 4600rms even if they are overrated they would at least be close to 400rms for around 600$, they are pretty good overall amps, very basic not flashy looks and put out close to the power
if not even
ive seen them burped at .35ohms

Huh? All other things being equal, 2300 watts is only about 3-4 dB louder than 1000 watts. Ever hear that doubling wattage = 3 more dB? Still 2300 is a stout figure to be sure.

you can still hear past 155 decibels...it's not that bad. It just hurts. I thnk permanant damage is caused at about 170..and that takes a lot

155 dB is louder than gunfire, jet engines. Anything sustained at that level = hearing loss.

Certain audible frequencies can cause permanent damage after a "sustained period (less than length of a full concert)" of 120db.

since when can't ported boxes sound good? They can have a pretty flat response curve...keyword..CAN

it's not like sealed box=SQ
and ported=SPL

i used to simply to experiment with tuning and such. Frequency response, things like that.

I just got a TCAB because I don't have the time to build anymore.

I have tried all kinds of sealed, some slot ported, and a few with 4" aero's

I had a whole enterage of subs. Including, but not limited to, the type r, l7, l5, mtx 9500, mtx 8500, re sx, and rockford (i think h2...not sure)

all of them worked different...I really liked the SX...although not shortly followed by the l7...the l7 was pretty loud, and sounded decent in a 4.5 tuned to 38 on a mtx 1501d
