they look cheap....sorry but I wouldn't trust a brand like that. I've never even heard about them...go for brand name stuff with proper warranty. eBay is your best bet. The RMS is not even that great...you can get a brand name sub with similar power for around the same price, why would you go with that no-name brand?

Hell you could get a kicker for the SAME price on that website....Personally not a big fan of kicker (not much experience with them). I would go a little more expensive and get either a pioneer or alpine from that site...price difference is small but quality difference will be large I'm sure.

Dont know much about them except for they started out with making dj equipment, Absolute audio has been both at Sema and CES the last few years, and they have a really nice booth. As far as quality who knows, these days the whole industry is in the shitter, companies have all lost an extreme amount of business and everything is made over seas now, the days of Rockford, Jl, kicker, soundstream, and all the other great former companies are gone. I would say like everyone else go brand name but these days I do so much warranty work work for so-called great companies that anymore I say it is all the same.

And i also disagree (IMO) with the fact that 350 RMS is not allot of power, if these subs will handle 350 RMS a piece and you have an amp that in any configuration will output 350 RMS to each sub it is all you will ever need in your balt.

I have a single 12 inch alpine type r running on 600 watts rms, and I'm hitting 126 db without any distortion. Quality, not quantity. Stick with reputable brands and you will not be disappointed
