It is more about the build really. Also the build quality of the car/truck itself. Some do not get much flex ever some flap around when you just look at them.

I got windshield flex with two cvr 15s sealed. I should hope you can flex your windshield with eight 12s.

why spend that much money on 8 type r's when you could get a couple ****** 18s and tear that thing apart.

i love when people come on here posting their ultimate goals in car audio.

like, can 2 8" boss audio subs on a 4000 watt boss audio amp pull a hair trick? because i saw Steve Meade on you tube and now i want to do a hair trick, hes my idol.

or can 4 12's flex a windshield?

I had pretty decent flex and a hairtrick with 2 type r's. But that was is in a Jimmy, it's much harder in a huge suv.

If all you care about is windshield flex just take a cutting wheel to the a-pillars and front roof support. You'll get all the flex you want.

Sell the type r's and get two nice 15's.

They're fantastic subs, for the price. But this isn't about price/performance.

I will hate on Fusion and Power Acoustik, I had two nightmare installs with those.

You can haz when I have a video. It's on one note of Tech N9ne's Delusional, but right now I don't have a functioning camera other than my phone's, and it ***** ****.

Heard you there. I have a high end camera, but it's retarded about trying to stop human vibration and has drop protection. It kills all my flex, and iPhone is just stupid bad quality.

Like to see though. Keep me in mind once you get a vid up.

I was actually driving to a doc appointment today and my windshield cracked. Spiders where the mirror is held onto the windshield and has one giant crack all the way to the base. Wasn't so much windshield flex as the mirror violently moving and not wanting to come off.

this thread should not have taken up 3 pages. just a simple maybe would do! you have a big truck and it takes alot of air to make **** flex, cut some **** out and you will flex. get a smaller truck and you will flex! get a girlfriend and it wont matter! she will make you flex all u want ;)
