Im looking for other options for subwoofers also as i like to try out differant subs. Im looking for subwoofers outside JL that can take around 500watts rms. I will be using my jl 500/1. Ive heard good stuff about Eclipse Aluminum,ImageDynamics idmax. I mostly listen to rap and am looking for good spl and good sq so like a sql woofer.
dude go to a shop and listen to a buch af different subs and make up your mind that way! if you were not happy with 2-12w6v2's then try an avalanche 15 trust me for your music taste you will love that sub!
get 1-15in avalanche and run it with the PPI 800 watta amp at 4ohms it will rock your car! www.ascendantaudio.com I have 1 avalanche 15 in a 2.5 cu/ft enclosure sealed and it slams with my PPI a600 running it at 4ohms.
SWEET!!! im gonna buy it from the site. I guess the main guy that runs the company is chad?? Does he make enclosures for this sub cause i whould wanna purchase it toghether. I dont trust alot of local dealers with building a box for it and tuning. Also im deciding between the 500/1 and the ppi pcx2200 for electrical reasons of not having a HO alternator. My stock alternator is 80 amps and i am also gonna be running a ppi art 300.2 for the componants. Let me know james
well then I would run the 500/1 but I still think you are gonna need an alt upgrade. Chad will give you dimensions for a box and specs for tuning so you can go to your local shop with that info if you cant build it yourself. I know Chad has been talking about doing a really nice snail shell enclosure your the avalanche but he said shipping would be a b!tch so I would ask him about it. If you go ported this sub will be very very loud, with certain songs mine in a sealed enclosure is almost to loud for listening enjoyment over any long periods of time
well if i do go with the 500/1 do you think its a better idea going ported ??? I have never seen a snail shell enclosure and i dont know how it whould sound??? I whould pay for shipping if it sounds as good as it sounds
well if i do go with the 500/1 do you think its a better idea going ported ??? I have never seen a snail shell enclosure and i dont know how it whould sound??? I whould pay for shipping if it sounds as good as it sounds...lol
Thanks for all your help james. I emailed chad about using my 500/1 or ppi pcx2200 amp. And asked him what kinda box i should use and even asked him about the snail shell and shipping. Is the avalanche dual 2 ohm voils?
Just making sure this my ppi amp whould work with this sub since the sub was duel 2 ohms. Im not good with the specs of these things so i wanted to make sure. Im just concerned of my electrical system since i am also running my ppi art 300.2 amp for my componants. again my stock alternator is 80amp and if i used both ppi amps i whould have a total current draw of 1100 watts rms. So 1100/12 whould be 91.6 amps. That whould put me way over. I will use my batcap model 800 for backup next to my amps in the back. I will need to upgrade my alternator if i use the pcx2200. Draws alot of current.
yup class A/B amps draw more current then class D amps. I have read very good things about those batcaps, you might be OK. put it in and see if you get severe dimming of your lights, if not your good, if you do then look for a new alt.
I was at chads forum tonight and he was mentioning that if you put the avalanche 15 in the recommended ported box that all you need is 500 watts and if you go sealed 700-750 watts is good. Its also on the ascendantaudio website under the recomandonded enclosures
