bangin system

alrite guys i had a 12 inch w6 v2 andd 500-1 and the alt could not take it so i needlesss to say sold it for 600 to a friend got a 12 inch w3 and it takes up to much room so now i have a dilemma i want a small compact system thats gonna sound great and i will still be able to use one back seat comfortably and recline the seats all the way so i think a 10 is what i need ...any ideas pics with a 12 or 10 that fits my needs or anything thanks in advance!!!

honestly with the type r, dont get the 10.. get the 12..

and if you get the 12 inch type r, then make a custom ported box.. tuned to 32 hz. But then again, that will be a big box. (but if you run a good 500 watts rms to it, it will hit 130s easy)

single ported 10" type r on a 1kw amp...nuff said.

1.5 cubes tuned to 34...sound good and hit decent...you'll get up into the 30's-32's with that EASY.

I was up to 138 with a single 10.

I loved mine, so much that I may even get another 10" r...still undecided.

I dunno, I used to make those things **** hard for what they are. 80 dollar subs hitting close to a 50 (my tcab box), and a single 10 ported was 138...double the rated RMS also...never blew it.

Didnt you have them setup to run 1600watts rms on that amp? If thats so, 800 a piece.

Yes, but I was running 1200 (actual watts) at 1 ohm, which is 600 a piece, they are rated for 500rms at 2 ohms...IIRC that is WAY too much power for them.

They barely move...and I still got em close to a 50...crazy stuff right there.




I used the same exact amp for the 10, @1 ohm. So I was powering 1200 at 1 ohm (just for burps). All the other times that amp was turned way down...and it was still a loud setup for what it is.
