ported of course and 3 15" X.XX's recquire lots of power, hope you plan on getting a new altrenator go to and look at the re section then go down to 3 15's X.XX. Those things move a sh!tload of air. Your definely going to be heard from bloks away

Hey Anonymous, why are you buying 3? 3 subs will give you odd ohms for the amp. Most amps will maximize power at 4/2/1ohms.

I know, Im goin to run an amp per sub, HIFNONICS BX 1500D.

Think that amp is to beefy for the subs, I decided to go with a seald enclosure cause of my music varities. I Listen to rap,rock,techno,country.

if you have the room for 3 15" x.x.x.'s, you might as well do ported boxes. tuned around 30hz.

do you realize just how loud 15" X.X.X's are...and how much current 3 BX1500d's would draw?

if this vehicle is just a daily driver, you may wanna do 2 15" x.x.x.'s (thats just my 2 cents)...much more cost effective, and in the right install, they will slam!

one other thing...what kind of systems are you used to listening too?

wont one more 15" only give a 3db increase?

I have never had a system with a ported box. I have always went with sealed. And Yes this is my daily driver. I just want massive amountns of bass.

How many people think it would be best for me to just do 2 re X.X.X 15" and 2 HIFONICS bx1500d. Im goin 2morrow to see about a new ALT and i have a yellow top setting around here thats goin to be used.

Hey guy, make sure you know what you want or else you will get ripped off. The alternator, you might need 250A cause I think those 2 amps will total 3000W rms. Good luck finding an alternator from a local shop. If you want an idea as to how much they run for, try

If they are places online to buy them then i will do that.

I also have another amp a HIFONICS ZX4000 for my componets.
