abhishek, the idq is much more musical than the id, but the price difference is quite a bit.
these graphs dont reveal much. and let the stats business be. in reality, what sounds better is what you will want.
you might like the cheaper id better than the idq, who knows?

why not compare the 2 by listening to them? and then take the call.

(this means, ID users in Mumbai must PM abhishek and allow him to audition their subwoofers. Please)

Had emailed Eric Stevens of Image Dynamics, USA regarding the dual ID8 / IDQ10V2 / IDQ10V3. Here's what he has to say in context to clean, deep low, tight bass. Very interesting and makes me lean more towards the dual ID8.

"The ID8 will play low and you would think it was an 10 or 12" actually. I do recommend a little larger enclosure though for best performance in the 20 to 40 range. I recommend .35 cuft per subwoofer with polyfil. In .25 each they will have decent low bass but be a little dry.

The IDq10 V2 would be in its optimum enclosure with .55 and the V3 would need to be very well stuffed with polyfill and would be on the small side of volume. The id10 v3 would be probably your best choice at this volume of our current subwoofers, it is actually quite like the IDQ and better than the V.2 in most ways.

You will get good results no matter which way you decide. I would steer you towards the 8" if you can increase the volume or if not towards the IDQ10 or ID10V3"

You bet, now all I have to figure out is how to get the two 8's in an enclosure. Whether together or two separate enclosure or go for 2 fiber glass enclosure on the sides of the boot.
And if I find the enclosure too big will go in for IDQ10V3

After a long wait and reading various threads and forums and various discussions have finally decided to go for a Single 12" Sub.
Now it's not an ID Sub. Something that I came across all thanks to the our very own FrankMehta. Thanks buddy.
I know all this while I was keen on getting a dual 8" setup. Would have definitely gone for it until I came across with this unique 12" sub. Dual 8" is always gonna be something I would go for some day in my other car. But as for now settled for 12" complete SQ sub.

It's something very different than anyother sub, unique in it's own way. Considered to be cut above the ID subs too. I should be getting it within couple of weeks.
