View Full Version : what to do???

i am currently running a rockford 500x which is basically a 4ch amp that can put out 2x250 at 4ohms

i only have 1 12" sub however that runs at 300rms
basically i want more bass, so

the problem is i built a custom box, and put a little too much time and money into it, and its basically really cool, but also really hard to sell for a good price.

anyway, would it be better to just sell my 1 12" and get a dvc 500w rms sub (can you use a 4ch amp to power a dvc sub?)

or should i try to sell the box and build a dual box, and just get another 12"? (and if so, where is a good place to try and sell the box)

It's really an either or situation. The cheapest route would be to sll your current sub and get a dvc. And yes most 4 channel amps can be bridged to 2 channels. And you can power your sub. :)

will 1, 12" 500watt sub be louder than 2, 250w ones? like what would the difference be, i would think, based on what ive picked up, that 2 would almost always be louder than one, but maybe its not actually louder, just deeper, or clearer?

Theoretically when you either double the power or double the cone area ( what your talking about) you will have a 3db increase. I say theoretically because you don't always gain exactly 3db. In plain jane english the two should be louder. :)

gotcha, but know is it cheaper to sell my sub for 50, and prob get a new 500w for....150? or buy another 12" for 50, plus a box (materials about 30-40)
so thats 90 for another 12
or 100 for a new sub (taking into account i sold the other one)

so should i go to the trouble of selling my box, and losing probably 60 bucks (building costs)

or just try and sell the stupid driver, hah hah
