if you want a pretty loud SQ sub, i would go with the Fi Q, fully loaded. thatll take probably around 1500rms (pushing it)

between those two im going to have to give it to the 08 fi btl overall i would consider the btl a better daily sub lvl5 can take more power for 3-5 seconds for spl

Kind of a lopsided question. More people run BTLs then LVL5s so far. BTLs have been out a good amount longer and have more exposure then the lvl5. Both awesome woofers no doubt. You will be happy with either one.

If you want a sub to do both SQ and SPL there's much better options. In the right box they can both sound good and get loud but they're not ideal if HIGH SQ and SPL are what you're after. These subs are more like decent SQ with CRAZY SPL.

Use search button next time. Better yet in the Subwoofer section just scroll down I'm sure you'll find something about the 2. :)

IMO Level 5 over BTL.

Mine has bp, and at least 1500rms going to it without a problem. Never smelled coil or have any hint of mechanical issues at high levels.

Just to clarify, just cuz im doing it doesnt mean it will for you ( general statement).

Ummm.....You guys want to tell him how to "search" for Fi Btl vs DC Lv5 without using any words less than 4 characters. Or should he just use the search button for that too? :lol:

These polls suck. Both are fine subs. Some of the best out there. If you had taken the time to learn about both, you would of already known that.

Designing, building, and shipping boxes. Yahoo IM - kingsuv00If the listening level is too loud, please inform the driver, so he can promptly pull over, and let you out.

not many cars can get me to pluggin my ears but this one.......damn. I mean the first minute is ok but that thing just really starts digging deeper and deeper in your earhole till you cant stand it no more. Seems like it does it with relative ease....16 12's on 8 amps.........gotta love it. :)

its rather comical because none of them have handson time with both woofers but are speaking about one being better then the other
