Ok..Lets say i got the MTX 1501d class amp..and i hook up 2 shivas and a MTX Road Thunder RT10X3A 10 Tri-Sub Loaded Enclosure subs..will this all work right what modifications to my car will i have to make? can anyone tell me? and will i need the HO alternator for the MTX 1501d?
Its not a good idea to run different subs in the same frequency range, especially different size subs. It'll be loud sure, but won't sound too pretty. If you want more subs add exactly the same kind and make sure they all play in like enclosures.
Unless you know exactly what you are doing, which from what I've seen you say about how you know nothing about car audio, then stay away from this idea. LIke Fishy said, stick with same sub, same size, same enclosure.
I guess the theory behind using the same sub at like frequencies involves cone velocity or so I was told when I wanted to do the same thing . Two different type of subs playing at the same frequency move in and out at different speeds(not frequency of course) which apparently is not good for SQ. I really don't understand it either other than that maybe that velocity differential could lead to a phase relationship problem or something.
Maybe Jonathan could explain.
I would think two Shivas at 500 watts RMS ea would totally kickorz with that amp and most people here would probabaly agree that Adire makes a lil better sub than MTX.
And yeah, a new alternator might just be in your future with that amp.
Ok.. LOL and yes I am a crazy guy least according to my G/F..I'm just wanting a really nice system hook up that can run pretty cheap i mean under a 1000 that will sound nice..I'm tryin to see if i can Blow the doors strait off my car.. U think its possible???
