I didn't order the sub yet, so I still have the choice of whatever coil configuration I'd like. What amp would this sub to what it is capable of? Also, does anyone make pre-fabricated boxes for RE subs on the net somewhere? Also, how much of a difference in kick would the X.X.X series be to the MT series? This sub will be squeezed in the back of a small pickup truck cab. Any help or suggestions appreciated!
Yea it's a regular truck, no extended cab. I'm just pulling the passenger seat forward some to make it fit, I don't have to sit there so I don't care. I was also throwing around the idea of removing the passenger seat but I don't know if I want to go that far. Right now I have a smaller sealed box there but I will get it to fit in there whatever it takes. It's what I have to work with. Anyway, my idea is to have the sub down firing to fit it in, that way I can make it as high as I need to meet the box size requirements. The bottom can stick out about 13 inches and then taper to about 10 or less at the top. After looking at the boxes on those sites, it's pretty clear that I'm going to have to make a box myself, as those obviously won't fit. How much room am I going to need in a for a 10" sealed enclosure?
It's a Ford Ranger '03 standard cab. Why would you suggest 2 12's instead of the 1 10"? Sound difference wise. I was thinking a 10" due to the fact I listen to a lot of fast metal, so that would kick really hard plus be super fast on reaction times. I'm sure the difference wouldn't be much at all between a 10" and a 12" though. Especially with an RE X.X.X. Also, what are you thinking for enclosure construction for 2 12"s? Different than what I'm thinking? Also, Glasswolf, Jonathan, etc, if you have any comments like I'm completely wrong, that's cool, I just want to make everything sound good. Thanks a lot for your help as well marshall and hunter!
i think marshall is talking about 2 12" lower end subs such as the comp VR, vega MX..etc. i wouldnt go with the Shivas because they need a much larger box to preform. i have 2 12" VMAXs behind the seat of my reg. cab GMC 1500 pickup and they sound really clean. cant wait til they break in to see how loud they can really get :D at the half volume i am limited to right now though, they sound awesome. im sure 1 10" X.X.X. in the box you described above would do just fine though. its all about personal preferance.
Well what would the difference between a 10" X.X.X and a 12" X.X.X? I kind of only want to go with a one sub solution. How much space does an X.X.X need to perform well in a sealed enclosure? And still what amp am I going to need to power one of those? A reliable 1600W RMS?
Seems like JBL has 3 distinct choices if I go class D. The BP1200.1 if I go 1200W@2 ohms, GTO1201.1 if I go 787W@4 ohms and 1114W@2 ohms, or the higher priced BPX1100.1 if I go 1141W@4 ohms. That's JBL anyway. Anyone's thoughts on JBL amps?
