    I think with Rockford Fosgate you will pay more for the name, then anything else. There are alot of "Name Brands" much better the Rockford Fosgate. MMATS, ORION, DIGITAL DESIGN, CROSSFIRE, TREO ENGINEERING, JBL, INFINITY, ...ect. Your best off too liston to verious different brands, and get what sounds best to you. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    www.millionbuy.com, my 12" HE2 Subs were $129 each and they are damn loud. Run them on 900 watts for about 4 months now and I love them!

    I like Rockford. They have always done well for me. I've owned RF, Orion, Pioneer, Alpine, And PPI. Have heard good things about Audiobaughn.

    Rockford has gone down in quality in the last few years. They just over extended themselves going into best buy and the such.

    Don't even get me started on faggiebahn. I am soo happy we finally sold the last of that line.

    BozoWise,

    The stuff I have are the Punch 250a2 and a 400a4 and I like these product. I have heard the newer stuff that are more round and don't like it as much. I wish that the power 650 I had never was stolen. Someone thought that they needed it more than I did. Oh well.

    What has gone wrong with the Audiobauhn? I have a friend that is going to get his done in a couple of weeks and if I can save her I will. Thanks for the update and what would you recommend?

    The older fosgate amps were much more reliable.

    The audiobahn has a high rate of failure.

    I didnt know that Audiobahn had a bad failure rate, my subs and amp im running from them has worked fine. Well except I broke one of the subs and sent it in and they gave me a brand new one but other than that i can say ive been pretty happy with there products.

    It have had lots of speaker before and Rockford Fosgate has never let me down. My friend had two HX2 12's and blew out the front window of his truck. In my Blazer right now I am running two HX2 15's and they hit hard!
