We have recently bought 2 RCF 312a tops and have been happy with them. Our first gigs are coming up and we are going to need at least 1 sub for some of the bars. We have been leaning toward the powered route but would like to get the best bang for the buck.
We were going to go with the RCF SUB718 which we could get for $1175 but I am seeing other options now that I am wondering about. The RCF is a 700 watt 18" but the JBL PRX618s is 1000 watt 18" for a slightly less price. I have seen a few other companys with a similar price for a 1000 watt 18". I would have to use an external crossover if I don't go with the RCF but I'm wondering if the extra 300 watts is gonna make a significant difference.
We are starting with one but plan on getting another withing the next 2 months. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
