Are Pyramid subs any good?

Hey, i was wondering if Pyramid subs were any good. My friend told me he was going to get two 12" Pyramid subs, but I told him to stay away. Im not sure if I gave him the right advice though, are these subs actaully any good? Has anyone had them before and would know from expierence?

Whatever..


I wish some of u guys lived closer to me, with my trunk closed you wouldn't know I run Pyramid subs.

For the price some of the new stuff IE: Hyper Pros, Imperals are not that bad.. im getting sick of people saying **** that probably never heard a Pyramid in 45 years.

How can you compare a $35 sub with a $365 Brahma?

You get what you pay for though, does the pyramid brand of audio equitment have a high rate of failure? You can go on ebay and get a pair of brand new pyramid 12" subs for under $50.00, and that seems very sketchy since its so cheap.

The question wasnt "Is Pyramid worth $35.00 when the Brama is $365?" Nobody mentioned any other sub in this thread.

The question was are Pyramid subs any good. And since this a narrow question you get narrow answers.

Straight up Pyramid is junk even if you can get their Hyper Pro subs cheap. Your way better off spending more money on better stuff. Their amps are just GARBAGE no fukkn question about it. I know someone with 2 12" 1000w Hyper Pro subs and a 1800w Pyramid America amp. The subs don't even get fukkn loud (they are even in a damn bandpass), The amp don't even get close to RMS rating, it wouldn't even blow a 150rms MTX sub (400rms a channel). If you wanna be cheap then go for Pyramid...

I would say at best Pyramid's subs are so-so. Thier dirt cheap stuff is completely useless, but some of thier higher priced ones are certainly worth the price IMO. I have a pair of the American built 350 rms Super Pro 12's - the only 12" they have with a 3" vc. They're seeing an under-rated 350rms a piece from an Optidrive 1000.1D in a sealed enclosure. They've been doing fine for over a year and while I wouldn't step foot near a competition with them they sound fine and get plenty loud. They were $75 a piece new on line.

This is about subs.. not amps. The amps are ****, nobody said they were good did they?..

BUT I do own 2 hyper pro's and they do get loud.. hook them up to a half decent amp, then come back and talk more.

Also, I am not cheap I just don't have money to burn. If I could get money at will I would have some thunder 8000's right now..

Actully I don't know why I keep arguing with people who have thick skulls, I have heard almost all of the mainstream set-ups around here and mine gets just as loud, or louder than other 12's.. but I really couldn't care less what narrow minded indivdules think, I installed my subs right and they sound good, never had one complaint about them from anyone who was in my car or even people who found out they were Pyramid (they were shocked) Only complaints are they are hurting ppls ears.. but hey.. I guess I don't know ****, I only own them I don't know what sounds good

If you could care less what others think then why are you ranting on here. If your happy with them, great, thats all that matters.
