    Hi i have contacted one of the sellers from the well know sites and ive been told that if enough people are interested in buying one or a pair of the AudioBahn AW1500V or which eer brand that he has is chosen we could then drive the price down to some where near the £110 per pair or the £55 each mk for that particular driver , but we all have to agree on the same unit of his range to be able to drive down the end cost:)

    The are the choices from the seller.....

    15"
    AudioBahn AW1500V
    DB Audio T-rex15
    DB Audio Xtinct15
    In Phase PD15 PowerDrive15

    12"
    DB Audio T-rex12
    DB Audio Xtinct12
    In Phase PD12 PowerDrive12

    Hi ewizzy you can can either have them as is in 4 ohm mode or when wired in parallel it will then be in 2 ohm mode or in series in 8 ohm mode........its a very versitile option.......i think the hard core car audio guys go with the 2 ohm versions so they can wire them for 1 ohm amp use.

    I would need either dual 2 or single 4 to present a 4 ohm load to my amp. If either of these 2 options are available I'm in :)

    That's what I was afraid of. I'll wait to see if mojo says the seller can supply or not. If not then I'm out. :(

    stick 2 in a 120l box give them 1550w rms and they will hit 105db at 17hz but will need some eq.
    and if you go bigger will need less power like 200l needs 850wrms and will go slightly lower and need less eq.
