my current speakers i have are dead and i need to make a decision and get some new ones. I have an alpine m500 amp. I currently have a enclosed 2 12's box. I was thinking about spending 150-200. I was wondering if i should maybe get a new ported box with 1 speaker or should i stay with current box and get 2 12's. I have a mustang convertable so i am limited on space but i am pretty sure i could find a box that would fit. Would i notice a big difference if i switch over to 1 sub that hits harder?
I'm guessing you have a rather small, sealed enclosure if its in a mustang. You could go with 2 JL w1s, they will work nice in a small sealed enclosure and will hold 400 rms total. You could set the gain on your amp to produce 400 rms and leave yourself a little head room. They're around $85 - $95 online.
