should I have gotten a 12W7? The IDMax is more affordable & requires less space... i think.. thats why I went with it.. also because I hear it is W7 caliber.. what you guys think?

yeah the W7's are $$$.. what size box do you have? Mine is about 1.1 cu. ft.. I hope that is enough. it will be about 1 cu ft after the sub is in it. How many watts do you give it? I will be giving it 800 watts RMS.

Is yours a v3?

naw mines a v.2 I have it in a 1.3 cu ft box right now. Which for my taaste is still not enough SPL. Im sure your 1.1 is TIGHT bass, but i want alittle more BOOM than that. So a guy from idmax sent me a design for new ported box that will keep my SQ but still give me more SPL. So its getting built tommorrow, i cant wait to hear how it sounds.

Oh and i had the Directed 1100d amp (1500 watt amp) powering the idmax12.

I now will be powering it with the Arc Audio 1500r

wow sounds like a lot of power! do you run a stock alt.? What gauge wire do you use?

Yeah, I hear that the v3 works better in small enclosures than the v2 did. We'll see...
