my new system

Well guys, i picked up 2 cerwin vega vmax 15" subs last nite. I got them at a pretty good deal. They are in 2 separate boxes that are about 2.2 cb ft. each. So now the building and stuff begins. :) Tonite im going to hook them up to a crossfire 600d amp just for temporary use so i can hear them until i get my new amp. I will try to get them on a meter this weekend with just the 600watt amp. Heres some pics of the subs in the old boxes.

I no the boxes look kinda bad but the subs are good. I just need to clean them up a bit.

NICE im going 2 15"s to but instead of having the speakers on the top i was thinking of putting them on the inside walls and having 2 box's like yours that way i could set stuff ontop of the box's and no one could see them is that plenty of space? like the perfect amount? and whats the rms of those subs? more pics :D



Edit do you have like a platform under the box's with your amp and all the goodies ect? because it looks like if you put the amp and stuff else where you could drop the box's like 6+ inches and be able to lean your seat back much further.

im kinda thinkin about sellin my system. Ive easily got the hardest hitting subs at my school but i just kind of get tired of them after a while. And i want to be able to lean my seat back more. idk how they are so loud b/c a lot of websites dog on the boss subs so bad. But, on another note, i built the box to the air space needed. most people just go pay an audio shop a $100 for something that will fit good in their truck.

I sold my other 15s. Im gona build a new box for these 15s. These subs have like 600 watts rms and 1200 max. I have a sub floor under the speakers and my amp and stuff is under it. I hooked them up last nite to a crossfire 600d amp and they pound louder than my other 15s with the 1200d.

The Vmaxs sound good and are loud. They are loud now on the 600 watt amp and they are in too small of box so i can only imagine what they will be like with the 1000d and bigger box.
