Well my friend ordered 2 audiobahn aw1051t's and a Power Acoustic 2 x 300rms @ 2 ohms a couple months ago, but we finaly installed them this weekend in his grand cherokee. all i have to say is wow. i put them in a pre built sealed dual chambered box with about 1.7 cu ft. per sub. i was worried before the install becuz all i have heard is bitch bitch bitch bitch about audiobahn but they sound awesome. very smooth and tight but can pound the low notes with ease. the amp volume hasnt even been turned to 1. only the bass boost is on. maybe im just raving becuz i had super low expectations but u have to look at the prices too. $40 dollars per sub and the amp was $130! not bad. and i installed everything for about 35$ plus a panasonic headunit which is hella sweet. i just thought all you audiobahn haters should know that i got their sh*ttiest speakers to sound good. i have some pics i get up later. peace

We don't bitch...we tell the truth. If you look at other brands you can easily find equipment that outperforms Audiobahn for the same price or less, and If Audiobahn was smart they would spend more money on R&d and not chrome and flames. Then whoever installs it decides to use the bass boost instead of the gain...sounds smart to me. I'm sure everything will last for a day or two running like that.

ummm, well I wouldnt say anything besides why are you running the bass boost up all the way with gains or vol at 1       hmmmm        and For the longest time I ran JL w0's   and guess what   could destroy about everyone on the road...Yes you get what you pay for.   But simple things for simple minds I guess,   Try building a slot ported box,    I think you will get alot more out of them

well the amp is cheap so the bass boost is just a switch and there is no gain, just amp level, hpf, lpf, filter switch and the bass boost switch
blah blah blah blah

There's a gain....you just don't recognize it.    If you have to use the bass boost, something ain't right.

Build the box so that it performs well in the worst case scenario and, in return, it will reward you at all times.

ummmm   there is no gain,   Last time I checked the Amp level was typically a gain knob...Just my though...Here is a quick test,   Turn the amp level all the way up turn your bass boost all the way up, and if it sounds horrible then "bam" you have it

Yeah - rave all you want if it makes you feel better. No one here is going to change their mind on the low quality for the price of Audiobahn.

Yeah... Im wondering what your point of reference is?  If you used to hearing Roadmaster subs on Dual amps, this Audiobahn setup may be impressive to you.  Give me the same amount of cash (+ or - 10%) and I will build you a better setup.

Just curious as to where you got the equipment from?  A licensed dealer?  Ebay?  How much was your shipping?  I compared the cost of those subs to the cost on SoundDomain and Crutchfield, it was well below both of those.  It has been my experience that when something is sold cheap over the net it is because it 1. has no warranty (seller warranties are a joke not worthy of laughing at)  2. will have a jacked up shipping cost.    If its 1, then I would not consider it much of a deal.  If its 2. you should look for a more honest company.  If its 1 and 2, well...
