hello everyone, i really need some help, i currently have three AUDIOBAHN AWT-12X and i dont know what to do next. i need to know how reliable these subwoofers are and if they will hit hard. i also need to know what kind of box i should put them in! please help! they are 2000watts rms and 4000 watts peak each so that is 12000 watts peak alltogether! i need answers please!
ps. i almost forgot i need to know what amp to power them to get the most out of them!
well i wont state any opinions about them if u have already purchesed them, but dont feed them 2000 rms for sure, i would give them two hifonics bx1500d at the most, but thats just me, i havent heard this particular class of audiobahn but ive heard pretty much all the others and they arent very realiable, id say about %40 of the people i know with them are very disapointed and about another %30 dont know what good sound is but for amps just go 2 hifonics bx1500d AT THE MOST.
yeah 3000 w rms should be enough to push those cuz they r only like 1000rms each even though they state 2000rms. they rate their equipment much higher than it really is.(i know this cuz i have a bahn amp(a1500hcq) it says 2000rms at 1 ohm but it only puts out 1200rms, which is okay cuz i gota brahma and thats what it needs about.) may need to check into a new HO alternator if your geting 3000rms though.
the reason u dont get that much power is becasue with audiobahn u ned 2 purchase alot of things 2 get them at ful power such as caps at least 5 farad for the amp and a new battery a reali good alternator a good hu and more things so i advise u STAY AWAY FROM AUDIOBAHN UNLESS U ARE WILLIN 2 SPEND A THOUSAND OF DOLLARS JUZ TO GET THERE SMALLEST AMPS AT CLOSE 2 FUL POWER
in my opinion caps do nothing, dont really need a battery unless u play your music with the car off, a high output alternator is always good to have in my opinion
if u play the muzik with the car on i thought the energy still came from the battery. Becasue if it didnt where would it come from. And i have another question the only thing that an alternator does is keep the energy folwing throughout the car right?
sean,those subs are great, you'll love their sq and spl, #1definate ported, #2i'm pretty sure thattheir dual 2 ohm subs, so you could run a mono channel at 1.33 ohms, find a huge amp or two amps that are strappable, they will put up big #s if you feed'em enough power. people joke about audiobahn because they make alot of crappy low end products, but they still make top of the line as well. i don't hear people sayin ford sucks because escorts are crap, thats right...they also make cobra mustangs, maybe not the best analogy but you get the point.
