i wanna decide on a sub before the amp so i can buy the amp to match the sub, i know ill have to spend at least a grand cuz i want 2 12'' but i dont wanna spend over 2 grand, the hdc3 is a great sub and the price is great but i think that the dd9512 would get a lot louder, thanks for sharing though, much appreciation

actually the hdc3 might be better considering price because im not gonna be competing untill i get a truck or van, for right now i just want something louder that cvr's because you cant even hear those outside the car so i think 2 hdc3 12'' will be perfect, thanks for the help

if you can push 2000wrms+ to 2 hdc3's then go for it. you will be spending well more than $1000 to do that, though.

"i just want something louder that cvr's because you cant even hear those outside the car"

Why would you want to hear your subs outside of the car? I thought the whole point in having a stereo system in your car was so you could actually listen to it while in your car? Am I missin something here guys?

So what your saying is... you want an SPL oriented system, you currently run stock electrical, you have a budget of 4 grand.

Couple of questions, how much space do you have in the trunk (dimensions)? This upgrade budget include your frontstage too?

FI BTL N2's

FI BL with 4" coil

hdc3's

SSA Xcon's

really though if you want the secret to loud out side get an older jeep and done deaden it at all. i use to have 4 12's on ~ 350 watts total and you could hear me coming. mostly any thing with a lot of windows and thin side walls / lot of cone area.

im really not a van or jeep person im a car guy but thanks for the idea its something i will consider when i get more comfortable with big vehicles, and yeas i guess i want a spl setup that i can bump everyday, and i should be more specific my 4g budget is for the whole car lol, so i guess for the audio ill be putting for the most 2g's, im not really sure but its the same as a mazda 6, thats all i can compare it to, ill measure and post the specs,

PLENTY of options to get louder than those kickers. however, i wouldnt want people able to hear my truck from 3 blocks away. that attracts too much attention from people who want what you got. I would worry more about how it sounds inside the vehicle lol.

the hdc3 are geared more towards spl, if you want something that gets loud and sounds great then i would suggest other options. also, keep in mind that adding HO Alt, Batteriies, and the wire upgrades will eat up easily $1000 of that budget.

ya i hear what your saying about attracting attention, but i mean my car already attracts attention without the bass lol, but i appreciate your concerns, and yeah the hdc3 are closer to my price range than the dd9512 and i have a friend that can get me kinectik batts and for cheaper than they go for so i have that covered, but i really appreciate the help, thanks
