    One 12 148db+ 3.5k?

    Looking to see what y'all think of running a custom 12 (4hp motor) on 3.5k to hit a 148 or higher. Looking to tune at 38 and it will be in a trunk. Also thinking of putting it in a 4th order.

    anythings possible with enough money for the right equipment!!!! 38hz seems a bit high though... 32hz? well maybe not? I'd be interested in seeing it....

    It took me an 18 with the 4hp motor and almost that much power to get to 148 from the trunk, but at 30hz.
    Its going to be a bit harder with a single 12 and that low of a frequency.

    Yeah I figure it will be a pain but I'm aiming for it at 37-40hz so that will help. I figure if I can get the right 4th order it could happen though.

    My seats fold down so that is not an issue. Room will also not be an issue for a single 12 I can comfortable fit 5 cubes in there.

    its easier to get higher numbers with higher tuning

    yeah, thats why i said maybe not, with factors tossed in there with the difficulty from the trunk, 32hz daily driver status!!!!
    I looked up single 12s and there some guys doing it, and a guy with a kicker sub, 141. From the trunk, lol i think he's lying no video proof! Lol

    A 141 isn't very impressive assuming his kicker is probably at 45hz. I want a setup for competition that I can still enjoy. A box at 38hz is plenty enjoyable. I can play down to around 30 still at that tuning

    he quoted 39hz, i don't believe him though... I haven't heard a good kicker in years, it was on that stevemeadedesigns site.... Did you ever go over there and check out all the little sh*t you can do to up the db's, its crazy, like a list of 20-25 things, little stuff i never even thought of!!!

    I think I can pull it off. Definitively will not get 150 without a fart box. If I get a 148 I will be happy.

    You may end up needing to make some concessions- namely peak freq and/or musicality, but shouldn't be a problem. Unless the meter just hates your car.
