    There is sq, spl, and sql.

    SQ: Sound Quality....this is for people who don't care for loud, boomy, music, but rather just want an accurate reproduction of sound.

    SPL: Sound Pressure Level....this is for people who want to break volume records and shatter the earth when they drive by...they don't care about quality, only hitting higher decibal numbers.

    SQL: A blend of the two. A clean sounding, loud system.

            How much did it cost you to install those in the headseats. How do IDMAX sound? Do they hit really hard?

              Put everything in myself...learned the lesson from my last car not to let anyone else touch it unless they're changing my brakes or tires.

              I had the maxes in a crappy box and they hit hard...im having a custom box built right now, so ill let you know once i get it. They hit harder than my old orion xtr-pro's which were pretty decent subs.

                you can listen to rap with either system, it's more of how accurate you want your sound versus producing a sound that wasnt there to begin with. sound quality is trying to achieve the sound that was created in the studios. This means to try to achieve proper imaging and avoiding distortion or degraded signal quality or processing. You can get a tight bumpin' system for rap while still having sound quality. but if you just want that thump and dont care about how tight or clean (accurate) it is, then your goal is spl.
