Re: Planning an IB Build!

The bigger the better in my book but the 15"s will be fine, there is nothing wrong with abit of overkill. And with the diminishing returns i would get that out of your head you never know when party night is going to come.

If money were an issue, I'd still suggest you save for the 18"s as you have the space and output will be cleaner. As it is, the cost of 18"s vs 15"s is really minimal when looking at Fi drivers: go with 18"s!

Dont forget, more spl for less cone movement equates to increases low frequency extension

It takes about 3 weeks for them to build. Worth the wait, because they are gorgeous, hand-made American BEASTS!
