first off how's everyone doing? secondly what do these mean SPL? SQ? SQL? ok now that we have that out of the way its going to be spring soon so im looking for a new system. I have a 2000 dodge Dakota club cab, 2 RF x500.2 amps and 2 alpine 12 r's dvc 4 ohms. I would like to upgrade the amps to one amp and new subs. I really want the earth shattering shake the sh!t out of ya sound. budget im looking at 1000 to 1500 I might get a new head unit to I was looking at the alpine 9857 but im not sure about it, its only 2v preouts and im not sure I can hook my pioneer xm unit up to HU. I guess ill take and recommendations on HU also.

thanks for any help

spl is sound pressure level, its basically how loud the sub is reguardless of how good it sounds. sq is sound quality which means the sub might not be as loud but sounds really good. every note is accuratly played. sql is a mix of both worlds, it is a loud sub but still sounds clear. so slp subs are more towards loudness and sq subs aim more towards sound quality. sql are in the middle.

im kinda looking at 2 re se 12's and a jbl gto 1201.1 ll would that be a good combo. the se's are 600wrms and the amp puts out
787 watts RMS x 1 channel at 4 ohms
and U 1% THD + N

1114 watts RMS x 1 channel at 2 ohms,
14.4V supply and U 1% THD + N
would that work or should i look at something different.

thanks for all your help everyone

you can't wire to se's to a 2ohm load they are dual 4ohm subs. Look for a amp that does 1200x1@1ohm. I reccomend the kicker 1200.1. The older JBL bp 1200.1 is better then the new GTO line.

ive never had a mono amp before so ive never had to worry about hooking to subs to a single point on an amp. thanks for saying something. i found the kicker amp at hifisoundconnection for $339.50 is that a good price for that amp?

thanks agian for all your help

casey i dont think im going to have enough room for the box with 15's i was thinking the same thing. but you have to be relistic its a truck and there is only so much room in the cab. unless i build a custom fiberglass box to get ever sq inch out of it i just dont think its going to fit.

I'd go with a 15" RE Sx w/ a RE 12.1 amp. Never heard the Sx personally but it's supposed to get pretty crazy. If I remember correctly that'd be about $700 for both.

Ya two 12" sx's would be sweet. they'd match up nicely with those viper amps rovin was talkin about. hey rovin would that orion amp work. I didn't think you could run two dual 2 ohm subs at a 1 ohm load?

rovin that Orion WCC-D2400 looks good to power two sx's but wont it over power them? also i tried to look the amp up on the net to see how big it was but i couldnt find the size of it, does anyone now how big it is? should i put the sx's in a ported or sealed box? does anyone know the price on eather the se or sx in 12"

thanks agian on all your help

Don't really worry about overpowering because most of these nice subs will take the extra power really well. However with two sx's you can only wire both of them to 2 or 4 ohms, so i would get 2 vipers and wire each sx too 1 ohm and hook em up.

just thinking here sx's are dvc 2ohm only how would i wire 2 of them up to a mono amp to get a 1ohm load. also i would really like to get away from having two amps. but if comes down to it i could get the two vipers.
