what are the pros and cons.what could i be expecting from both with the right electrical and power.i have the btl and a crunch 3000d pro now and love it but cant feed it the right power cause of electrical.was planning on getting a new alt soon or sell the btl and get 2 18" bl's get the alt later and run these on a aq2000
need some help.what size alt would i need to run the crunch at full or close.

I would get the alt first because you would need it for either setup and then up the cone area later

i just ordered it so now which will get louder.im sure some of you will say the bl's but i was wondering will they get just as loud as the btl but with lower tuning.

the bls will handle a lot more than that aq2000. i have 2-15" bl's and im pushing 2-aq2200 strapped and they handle no problem.

well i have a crunch 3000d-pro now but was going down an amp but wasnt sure maybe i might just keep the crunch and get the bl's.do you think they will be loude then the 15" btl even though its no muh power going to one sub

Shavenblazer, if you aren't happy with that BTL you're crazy. :)

Yes, 2 18s vs 1 15 should be much louder on the same power if things are done right.

It takes skillz to get a single 15 louder than two 18's off around the same power (assuming the 18's have a decent install...)

What kindof space are we talking about. Do you have enough room for 2 18's for a good size box.

2 18" BL's if in the right box should be a lot louder atleast to the ear. i mean, 1 15" BTL you probably have what, 4-5cf box? 2 18" subs should be in around 12cf, with a lot more port. comparing apples to oranges, but i would go with 2 18 BL's because of the cone area.

thanks for the good answers guys appreciate it alot.I was just wondering because my btl is tuned to 35 hz and i like the higher bass notes when they hit.whats the highest tuning i could put on these
