oh ye aand for fi subs..what is the different between the bl and the q??? they both have the same rms=1000...which on eyou think is better for daily driver who wants sq most of the time but wants to be able to bump once in a while for fun and partys and crap...

ive talked to scott about this and the Q is still the higher end SQ sub, but the BL is made for a lil louder/less sq and it is really meant to be used in conjunction with upgrades and ran at higher than 1500 rms which you have stated you dont want electrical upgrades and sq so the Q is def a better match for you

straight from fi is the only place unless you buy a used one and what amp you use will decide whether dual 1 or 2ohm coils.

i'd get a idmax, amazing sub. but if you stick with the q i'd go with a sx650.1, its a very nice amp should push the q nicely.

you can pick up a sundown saz1500.1d for $450 brand new from www.soundsolutionsaudio.com and if you do get the dual 1ohm subs.

oops, for some reason thought you asked about the ssd. for a single q you could get a ed nine.1, kicker sx 1250, jbl 1201, arc audio kar 1000v1 (my pick), etc. any amp that'll do 800-1200wrms, clean. i'd go with a dual 2ohm q and the arc audio amp.

600wrms isn't enough for a single q. i'd say it's really close on the sq, but the q might have a little more output. it'll come down to install imo.

if it's to much for you, try another sub or just get a single q.

i would include the SI Mag 12 if you're looking for a killer SQL type sub. Be a killer in the group.

i dont know what a si mag is and i dont need anymore suggestions thank you..picking between id max, the w6 and the fi is extremely hard for me.....the fi i have to order off the comp i dont really trust that......and i cant hear it in person...with the id max and jl audio i have local dealers who are certified dealers of jl and i know of a store right by me that carries id max..the fi q is a great price but that doesnt even come with a dual box and i really dont wnat to go tot he hassle of findidng one that fits and stuff...i dont know too much about this stuff thats y im asking you guys and when im with a dealer they help pick stuff out for me and stuff and show me what all fits

your best off building your box to begin. id take the Q ALL DAY over the other choices. you can order the Fi by phone. JL is overpriced. dealerships are g@y. now buy the damn Q

for a grand you have a TON of choices but just go out and get yourself a kicker ZX2500.1 or even two Jl 1000/1's, hell go out and have a ball with a massive audio P3000.1 1500 rms each though is REALLY pushing it i think they could take it as i have talked to someone who has done it but i wouldnt push it.

i have a feeling these subs are to loud for me......i think im better off getting the id's or w6's...the id rms is between 200-1000 and the w6's are like 400-500..that is more my goal..if i have to pay a little bit mroe money for jl then i might as well because the id max subs are ugly as hell to look at

i really think your better off with the W6 it just seems like it would fit you well, your not big into SPL you just want good clean bass and if you get 2 12w6s and a 1000/1 you dont really need any electrical upgrades

unless i can power the two 12 inch fi's with a 1100 watt amp only giving about 600watts a piece but if that aint going to work then i dont want them..because the jl's do that and the id's do that too

the Q would be fine off of that power but if you have a big budget you might wanna just go to a dealer and have this stuff done then you don't really have to worry about it

its funny how people cringe on internet forums when someone says something about running more or less than their rms rating...

2 Qs will sound great with 600rms apiece...

you dont need any capacitors. with the amount of power you are talking about running your car should be fine. i would upgrade all of your power and ground wires to 1/0 though.

yeah tremor is right and IF you do feel your needing a lil more voltage then get a kinetik HC1400 or even a HC800 they are much better than caps i will never recommend a cap unless its strictly cosmetics.

I'd go 2-12's with 1 Ohm DVC. As for the box, Im a big fan of Sealed. Personally, I like the tighness of the bass and the response curve.
