I hadn't even heard of Skar audio until this forum.
Looks like some pretty beefy stuff. If I find myself in need of something louder, I may have to give them a shot.

You can't tell how well a sub sounds from a youtube video.

Any setup requires proper power and EQ and correct installation/wiring to sound decent.

Maybe not quality-wise, but to me the amount of distortion the camera mic gives off from the bass lets me know how loud the sub is. If it doesn't distort or there is little distortion then the sub isn't that loud and the setup isn't even worth filming, but if there is a significant amount of distortion (especially if recorded with an iPhone, their mics are very resistant to distorting) then it tells me it's a loud setup in person.

Does this make sense?

Loud does not = good IMHO. SQ is more important.

If that's what it's meant for. If you have 2 15's in a ported box you're probably not going for SQ, and if there's no camera distortion with 2 15's then you are doing it wrong.

My tube really puts out in person, esp. for a 6 inch. My old camera was more sensitive to bass and the tube made it distort. The mic on my new one handles bass better, so unless you play the video on good speakers or headphones you can't tell there is bass at all. Since my old one distorted, you could tell that the bass is present and plentiful, even on just a pair of Apple headphones or laptop speakers.

Again, does this reasoning make sense? (Wether or not its on topic anymore, I feel like I got away from what you were saying).
