Ok heres the deal

My best friends dad is gettin a smooth system put in his 2 dr tahoe

eclipse 3434
memephis bell amps bridged together
jl 3 ways in front 6" 4" tweeter
the 6 is gonna be in a kick panel the rest is in the door

jl 2 way component in back

stealthbox is a 10" jl 300 watt that goes in the front console

he is paying tons to get it all installed total system cost is gonna be $$$$$$


that bein said i want my system to dominate his....i figure his weakness is that the stealhbox isnt gonna be great

soooo i want to crush his system in sq and boom

i have an older model eclipse cd player that im replacing with an 8485

eclipse 8264 brand new components with titanium tweets

brand new eclipse amp for the fronts

jbl bp1200.1 and im gettin either a RE x.xx 12 or a n eclipse 12 for my civic and i need to get a big ported box

i also bought 2 tons of fatmat and im gonna mat everything

will my system compete you guys have any advice?

that would suck bro ... New Rockford Subs sucks... the RE would slam with the BP, much better then that JL . hell have louder treble from the speakers but as far as bass go that RE sub well out slam that guys system in a second

the RE triple X or Eclipse Ti sub is my bet.
stick to either a sealed box, or a ported box that's tuned very low, around 28-32Hz.
get a dual 4 ohm coil sub, or single 2 ohm version.
that way you give all 1200 watts to the sub.

nice gear you've chosen.
if you have the time and money, have the entire interior of the car removed, and spray-line it all using LizardSkin or similar like rhinohide. That spray lining is amazing stuff.. the mat is good, too though. either way be thorough.
make sure your charging system can handle these damands too.. 200A alternator, etc.. 1/0ga cable, deep cycle isolated battery, and 1Fd of capacitance per 1000 watts of power so about 2Fd of caps.

that being done, about the only other step I could suggest is to add equalization like an Audiocontrol EQL, or pair of EQTs, and have the EQ portion tuned professionally on an RTA.
then you'll be event ready no doubt.

Do the eclipse TI subs really have 1.5in. X-max One way? Also could the SW9122 run on 550 watts and hit good, i think its rated at 750.?

Thanks glass, but one last question, if i got two of these 12s is there another pair of 12s that would be louder than the eclipses that are in this price range?

ehh, probably but the Ti subs are already insanely loud, and crystal for clarity and detail.. you won't find a much better sub.
the ID IDMax or RE Triple X would be similar, but not particularly better in all aspects.
