Peerless or Madisound 1259 driver???

Hello, looking for some input on driver selection for stereo subs. I think I have narrowed it down to either two MAD1259's or two long throw Peerless twelve inch drivers. If cost was not a deciding factor, can some people give some input. Size is not a problem and power to drivers has not been selected yet, but I was thinking along the lines of about 500 watts per driver from a high quality plate amp. I have heard nothing but good things about both of these drivers so I am torn in this desition, help...
Thanks,
Vince

Re: Peerless or Madisound 1259 driver???

The MAD1259 is a very old school (obsolete) driver design.

If you're wanting a good advanced technology 12" driver look at the new Exodus Audio Shiva-X from DIYcable.com. It's a better option than either the 1259 or Peerless 12s. Kevin also offers has a very nice 500 watt plate.
