well i preordered 2 13ov.2's yesterday, now im starting to wonder if maybe i made a mistake. im planning on running a sealed box in the back of an 87 trans am, probably about 1.3cf per speaker. i listen to a lot of stuff in my car, classic rock, metal, and rap, but usually if i've got it up loud im listening to some 30-60hz rap and prefer boomy, rolling bass over tight punchy. you know, the stuff you can hear 3 blocks away. i realize ported enclosures are better suited for that, but i dont want to be SOL when i feel like popping in the grateful dead, pink floyd, chimaira, or metallica. hell i even play some classical from time to time. anyhow, running off an eD nine.1 amp at 1 ohm, what is probably going to be my best bet, the 13ov's or 2 avalanche 12's?

also, the avalanches are dual 2 ohm coils right? anyway to wire these for a 1 ohm load? i dont really want to buy a second nine.1 or return it for another amp, 300 bucks for a 12-1400 watt amp is just too good to pass up. but if the avalanches would just blow away the 13ov's i would consider it.

Wrong section of the forum. Try the ov2's and see if you like them, if you don't well do some research and see what you think will be best for you.

not really sure yet, i think im going to have a plexiglass enclosure made for the well, dont know if i'll have the subs angled forward or straight up. most i've seen are angled. are you on the thirdgen.org forums? im there under the same name. if not, check them out, awesome resource.

I would go with the Avalanche. Seems like a good deal with the price cut.

you can go bigger and aim them straight up.....already did that depends on how crazy you wanna get with the box.
