They are both amazing and they never overheat

Re: black_em2 build/progress thread

Nice, did you get a readout of how much DB you're pushing?

Could prolly easily beat those MTX's with a basic single 12" setup if you know what you're doing
Mind you, MTX has awesome subs for the price though.
What are you pushing them with?

Painting stuff is seriously money well spent, it only takes a couple rattle cans to make a world of difference.
