Default Sundown Audio vs DC audio subs

DC LVL 3

Specs Posted here: DC Audio - Woofers

SA-12 D4 - Sundown Audio

* RE: 4.33 Ohms * Fs: 30.3 Hz * Qes: 0.519 * Qms: 7.25 * Qts: 0.484 * Vas: 29.07 L * BL: 22.16 NA * Le: 4.73 mH * Mms: 308 g * BL^2 / RE: 113 * 600 watts RMS * XMAX: 19mm one way

Which should I get. The local DC dealership wants $195 for 12's and $180 for 10's but I can get a Sundown audio off of ebay for $154.

Here's another question:

The max box dimension I can get is 33" x 13.5" x 26". What should I get 10's or 12's. I ran 10s mostly in this car...no complaints besides my trunk lock blowing off.

Diyma.com. Check it out the guys over there seem to like sundown for price/performance ratio. I've never used or heard sundown personally.

The SA-12 was Klippel'd - see message thread here: DIYMA.com - Scientific Car Audio - Truth in Sound Quality. Looks like a good driver.

I haven't seen any tests of the DC audio drivers.

Yeah funny thing is that the SA-12 is cheaper it seems.

the SA's are usually the same prices as the DC 3's +/- a few bucks. SSA has the Sundown SA12's on sale for $155 ea.

I can work up a vented box using some old programs I have...but I would want you to reconfirm mine with some of the other members here to double check my work cause I have not done one in a couple of years.
