I looked at the MT18, as well as the Kicker stuff. I don't know if I have room to stuff an 18 in my truck though.

2 12's fit nicely...click my sig for pics. That setup will guaranteed hit a 150 with 2200wRMS...and the subs only cost me 200 dollars the box was 300...so 500 investment + amp to hit a 50 in a truck...NICE

I would look at MT 12's...just one should do very well.

I would also check out the MTX 9500...very nice (powered by a 1501d can get loud)

Try the new line of kicker 12's...click my sig (it says' blurple)...he gets loud too.

Just 2 12's does the trick in these trucks. In my experience, 1 12 is not enough for me, 1 15 was okay but I lost clicks on my seat (type r 15) and 2 12's (type r's) sound awesome and hit pretty nicely. Pretty good mix of SPL and SQ

I deadened the hell out of my truck and it still sounds like a gorilla is punching my truck cab...I don't get it...dynamat extreme (6 layers on back, 2 everywhere else) I am going to stick something between my box and the back cab to see if it will stop...I'm still flexing pretty good with 6 layers, and I did it properly. I might put re-inforcements, I was thinking rebarb inbetween the dynamat???

Those 4 10's should be nice, but I prefer to drop jaws with the least cone area possible. 2-12's that I have (I don't like to be cocky, but stuff happens ) are louder than a lot of setups that have a lot more power and cone area. I don't know of many people louder...maybe a handful (systems i've heard, known of in my area). If I could, I would do 1 15 again, I just lost too much seat room and the SQ wasn't good. Now the SQ is OK, if I can get over the back panel rattling so dang much...I gotta do something about that.

yeah but i will be able to fully recline my seats and slide them all the way back on the track as well as get pretty loud. my budget system will bang pretty hard. i suspect 145-150db when i am done. thats sealed no more than 2.25cuft in space lost so i can also carry a bunch of crap in the cab.

I bet you could pull a 45 out of 4 10" mb quarts sealed. I know you know what you are doing. I just have never heard/seen anyone pull more than that off 4 10's sealed. I know someone with 4 10" l7's that was sealed that pulled a 43 off a 2500d (they were not underpowered, they actualy reach full excursion quickly). Another person with 4 10" type r's hit I believe a 44 on a kicker kx2500.1 (or whatever their high power amp is)

Not saying it's not possible, but you will likely be in the range of a 45, but that is DAMN loud for a DD, and it should sound very very very nice.

A friend of mine did 4 10" mmats sealed, and it's difficuilt to bear sitting in his truck, but it pulled a 46...at like 55 hz (thats too high for my liking)

I should be around a 45 at 38-40hz


and bamaboy...you just made me take a "bathroom break"
and there is drool on my keyboard

140 on music is good. I'm like 45 on music (thats a guess, i've heard a lot of systems on the TL at 45)

For frontstage i'm going active (either alpine or eclipse...probably alpine) and i'm doing 5 1/4 comps (polk momo's or something) in the kicks, I have polk db's in the front doors, i'll be doing 5x7's in rear doors (probably polks) and another set of tweets up by the pillars (right by my driver/pass mirror)

It will be run by 2 amps (i'm leaning towards orion 600's)

That will make my ears hurt...well, actually i'm just trying to keep up with the subs

If I were you I wouldn't fab anything up, just use what you have, IMO you can get awesome sound without hacking doors and such. I would just stick w/ 5 1/4 or 6.5's...just my opinion

Just do 2 12" type r's if your on a budget...or even two 12" kicker l7's (the new ones are SICK)

Trust me, you will get what you are after...properly amp them (more than enough power) and you will make your ears cry. Talk to blurple or me about it. We definetly have some low dollar high output systems (in comparison to others)

Type r's run you 120 a sub, kickers about 170-200 depending where you get em.

Kickers are louder at higher frequency's, but down low they can't extend as far and create that LOW bass that I've come to fall in love with. I ran a kicker 15" l7...it was loud, but not low. Soul survivor was the lowest it could go, and it was louder at songs like "air forces" (young jeezy) and the box was tuned to 32 (first box for it) and 38 (second box for it)

Like I said, my box fits pretty much perfect and if you need so, I can hook you up with the builder of my box. It will cost you 299 shipped to your door. It takes quite a while to build, but IMO it's totally worth it. Or you could build your own, I can get someone to give you plans w/ my dims or i'm sure blurple is willing to help out.

Trust us, use typical subs, output is IMO 70% your install and 29% product...I dunno where the other 1 percent comes in.

I reccomend type r's or kicker l7's, I have a lot of experience with both, you wouldn't be disapointed. And if you can bear sitting in the car after your done, either you are freakin crazy, or deaf. It hurts...bad!!! And anyone that needs a DD louder than that is crazy (I guess I'm crazy)

All i have heard about a bahn is that they are garbage. My friend had 2 12's rated togerther at 1200 watt rms(600 rms each) he had them hooked up to a rockford amp which put about 550 to each sub. he had a cap, upgraded alt, and a yellow top to make sure everything was powered properly after about 3 months his amp went out. he had it refurbished by rockford then bench tested at best buy. he was making 550rms to each sub exactly he installed it the same way it had been before 2 months later he blew both subs and he said he didnt even have it up as loud as he ussually did. all i've heard about them is bad things. he now has 2 type r's and is very pleased. i think they sound much better, but i dont think anything really beats the kicker solo series.

alot of their high end subs are all flashy, but dont have woven tinsel leads into the spider. that is BS cuz when the sub is in hard use the tinsel leads will touch and short the amp out.

when I was in high school, my buddy had 2 A-Bahn 15"s in his Cavy, and it sounded real good. He absolutely loved them. A guy down the street had 2 12"s in his Camaro, and it didn't sound as good.

My girlfriends brother had 2 Phoenix Gold 12"s in his Ram, and it sounded amazing.
