Here is my logic, you can always turn down a sub thats too powerful, you cant keep turning up a sub thats bottoming out. Plus those subs IMHO dont dig deep enough to give you the bass you really want which is the 20hz and below stuff which you can still feel even at low volumes.
If I had done what I was planning on and purchased a LFM-1 EX rather than the PSW125 originally, I think I would still have it.
Heck my wife commented she cant even tell the sub isnt in the mix still as my LSi's cover just as much down low as that sub does, and the same could be said for folks running RTi A9's.
Just because he cant crank it now, doesnt mean he shouldnt purchase something too powerful now that he will be able to crank on down the road.
If he gets either of those subs in the end we all know he's probably going to want to upgrade when he moves to a bigger place, or gets a house. When that happens he's looking at another 500ish on a better sub and he will be lucky to get 75 bucks for his 505. I got 150 for my PSW125 that cost me 350, and I got lucky because I sold it to someone who was willing to pay 150 because he knows I take care of my gear and had the original paperwork to boot.
