Similar sub to my current one but not identical, a little bit of an upgrade. I am aware that this has been briefly covered a couple years ago, another individual did go this route and seemed pleased.
the other option would be to get a new matching set of 2 subs (outlaw x12 or other) and to sell my current lfm 1 plus locally.
Would it be expected that the lfm plus and x12 would be a good to excellent pairing where I wouldn’t be diminishing the returns on dual subs or am I better off starting with a fresh pair? Also given that my current sub is 8 years old. I spoke to outlaw and they recommended adding an x12 and that it would be a good match.
I know there aren’t going to be any absolute answers to this, but looking for some opinions and thoughts. Thanks in advance!
since they have the same port tune and similar output i think adding one X12 makes sense.
when i went from one x12 to duals it made an incredible difference!... you'll love it
