I am very happy id companies have produced very high quality subs that while still pricey arent out of this world for an amp, subs, box. my fv25hp is very capable at under 3k. my old velodyne hgs 12 which retail was 2k just doesnt even compare. and even tho it was 14x14x14, it still takes up space, I kinda hate small subs now, like having vertical space so I can put my plant on 1 w/out looking dumb at ankle level.
