Yeah I don't see a need to go over 2 personally. If you get it tuned correctly 2 will pound.

Screw multiple subs. One of these in the bed and you are good to go:

What kind of airspace do those require? I didn't find anything bigger than a 15" on jbls website.

agreed. Have you guys not seen how tiny our cabs are?

1 ten is probably too much for the amount of airspace we have.

I have one 12 running 250 watts. Plenty for inside the cab. Any more and you are just showing off.

Some people like bass. Some people like a lot of bass. Some people like for their bass to keep up with their mids and highs. Some people like their subs to be able to drop down into the 20Hz area with a flat response.

I have 2 15s and they are loud but its still not enough. In a month or 2, ima build a wall that is about 8 cubic ft tuned to 40 Hz for my 2 15s and they should pound.
