And here it is: my Xplod 12" subwoofer.
Actually it's the 1300W Pioneer 12" that I got after swapping in the Xplod. Long story short, I opened the Xplod box to find no owners manual or screw. Neither really bothered me but it was obvious that something was up. Sure enough, when I hooked the woofer up, it rattled and jingled like crazy. A bunch of wires on the inside were all broken loose and shacking so I had to go back into town and pick up a replacement. They didn't have anymore Xplods so I picked up the Pioneer instead. It has a higher peak output but less RMS; however, I really like how it looks over the Xplod and I saved $10 so it turned out alright in the end. I haven't really tried it out much but it sound really good so far.
BTW, I will obviously be carpeting the box as soon as I get a chance.
