I noticed that Rythmik Audio has several subs. For the same price you can get a sealed 15" sub, or a dual 15" driver or a ported 15" sub. They all have the same 600 watt amp driving them. What are the differences in between them? I'm not in the sub market right now, but just curious. It would seem that the dual 15" would be the best design, disregarding WAF.

The ported and sealed subs have the DS1510 driver (bigger voice coil, etc.). The dual uses the 1501.

I think that dual is a newer product, and that it looks pretty compelling.

I'm thinking of getting their dual driver sub. Rythmik's previous flagship received some rave reviews and topped a shootout comparison with some well known and respected competition.

Can you get the dual driver sub in kit form like some of their others?
