ok. i have a 1991 mustang hatchback, lots of room, any box will fit. my question is is if i put 3 diff subs in my car(2 eclipses 12's and 1 type r 12) will it sound really bad, i basicly want lots of spl and i also need to find a program to make a box, i dont care abotu sounds quality, i just want boom.

first off are they all the same impedence, or can they all be wired to have the same impedence, if not you would have to run seperate amps because electricy follows the path of least resistence, hence the higher resistance subs would get little if any power. even if they are the same impedence: i am assuming your going to have the same power running to set of 3 as you would to just two, in which case i would estimate that those 2 eclipses with x/2 watts going to them are going to be more optimal for spl then 2 eclipses and 1 type r all running x/3 watts. when going for 'boom' generally you want more power to fewer subs than less power and more subs. personally i would NEVER do what you want to, but you COULD probably do it if the impedances match.

only real problem im going to see is the possible cancelation due to the fact that they are diff. brands of subs......if you really must keep the 3 subs....run the eclipses at a freq. and run the type r at a higher freq.....or vise versa....either way i think there will be some cancelation....and im w/ ya on that jmac......waste of money imo
