I recently finished my system, almost, and my Ultimo just broke in and I cant say enough good things about it. Its what Ive always wanted and I love the carbon fiber cone.

Though I have never heard most of the others I did have 4 5ws's and I have to say this is just as accurate as those were and goes MUCH lower and louder. I wouldnt change this sub for anything.

Honestly, this thread is totally biased to what one heard in a certain Car at a certain time with a certain enclosure. There is no best sub, there is no holy grail that one can buy and get perfect sound from. It's just what makes you shiver because it sounds so good in an enclosure that you Build yourself. It's not the sub that gets better....it's your experience that gets better.

Serious question- Can someone post a link of a quality subwoofer setup? (I'd prefer to hear one integrated nicely so I know what to listen for). So far the best videos I've found are on youtube of a user 'hexibase' (I think) great recording quality in the newer vids. My temporary sub install is terrible right now but I still think it should sound better than it does. It just feels like 'it's just doing it's job' and I'm wondering if a seemless integration with the rest of the frequency range is asking for too much?

I can't really comment on alot of these subs mentioned but from my experience the BEST I ever heard was the old old velodyne servo controlled sub.. Also the a/d/s RS12.2 subs I used in a sealed volume of 1 cubic foot were some of the most linear,well behaved subs I have ever used or heard..I compair them to the velodyne set up but the velodyne still takes my top honors.. I also have to agree that alot of it does come down to the construction of the enclosure itself..John Manville always told me to make the enclosure bullet proof and to where a elephant can sit on it..So strength is the key here..look at the B&W 801's (I think) cabinet construction using the matrix braceing and this will exemplify whay John Manville was talking about in my opinion..

I have a Hertz ML 3000 in my Car and I love it. You might want to consider this sub as one of your option.

I think Rainbow Vanadium 12" might not be THE ultimate SQ sub, but, i have a crush on it. Anyone here ever listened to a setup with these beauties?

Default Re: Ultimate SQ Sub - PLEASE VOTE :)

ultimate sq sub = properly tuned and setup midbass + decent sub. the sub is not at all as important as the midbass or mid if you're 2 way. how a sub blends up front is the link between the midbass and subwoofer. while transients of a sub are indeed important establishing the proper crossover point on the midbass, time alignment, and eq'ing the response to match that of the sub + its crossover point, time alignment and eq = Best Sq results

If you have high $$ Subs and drivers and any of these variables are missing or not properly set, then the products arn't even going to compare to a cheaper driver with maybe not as good of performance, but so long as it is tuned and setup properly, i feel you would yield better results and outcome.

but assuming that it is setup and tuned perfectly

In no order i'd say,
Morel Ultimo Large Sealed Box
ID Max IB
JL W6v2 Sealed or Ported Low
Critical Mass UL12
IDQv2 sealed in small box
Rainbow Vandiums
JBL Wgti's

some of my favorites.

probably the ultimo takes the cake for impact and transient response

Current Setup: 2013 VW CC TO BE DETERMINED!

I have to say hands down the Eclipse Sw9122 best Sq sub from my experience.
or maybe because I'm just an OS Eclipse fan.

I never heard those Velodyne subs but hear that nothing can compare because of those servo's and man they had the price tag to with it. Like you and many other on here I do agree with you all. You need the right Build and set up to go with the Sq sub or else it wont really make a difference but They don't make them like they used to. In my opinion.

I have used various subs. SS10r's I really like, especially the SS10R limiteds. The Image Dynamics IDW15 is awesome (would love to hear an 18!!) I recently replaced my upfront CDT sub with one of these, in again an upfront enclosure -



Those who know their subs will know what it is, and it really is exceptional. My front end is good, but this has just lifted the whole quality of the system - I now may need to get some R1's to replace the EMITS at the top end!!
