Well ive gotten the bug again. I just got my lvl5 playing again, But im already wanting to rebuild. Sticking with DC for sure. Love my lvl5 but im thinking of stepping down to some xl's and running them off my AP3K for a little while and then possibly reconing them and runing them on thier own 2.5K. Im just debating should i step down or just wait and save for another lvl5 and add another 3k or a DAT 8.1. The rebuild would take a bit longer if i do another lvl5. would there be that substantial of a difference between the 5k rms vs. the 8k rms. either way the subs would be in identical boxes and electrical would be the same for both. Box is gonna be 12^3 tuned around 35hz for bassrace. Goal is to bassrace off 2 18's in the 149.9 class. its a bit of stretch i know but is possible. Will there be enough difference though to justify spending close to 2 grand more on electrical, amps, and subs for a few tenths? or would the difference be a few db's?

I understand this is an almost impossible question to answer but what are your experiences?

Well i wouldnt state going from a 5 to a XL a bad downgrade...ive actully seen tons of people love the switch from 5 to XL...and dont let the power rating fool you....unless u are planning on only burping....for daily music...ive seen the XLs take plenty of abuse! My buddy, Dee, has two 18'' XLs on an Atomic 7k and they love it!! If you can get on to some XLs quicker than you say you can get a 5, then make the change, see what happens... but i guarantee you you will not be disappointed!

If you be smart about everything, the XLs will take 4k....i believe at one time, rusty even did testing in the shop with an XL on 4k...if i remember right...but the final decision is up to you...
