I'm trying to get 2 18s in my ride. Going to rebasket the XLs. I'm not sure on the port area they need yet but they need 6 cubes a sub. I'm at work so I dont have access to any calcs and I dont know how to calc the angle in anyway. The attached drawing is what I have to work with. Will it be enough? If the answer is yes I'll have one of you guys design it soon. I dont want the tuning over 35hz and would like the port to be a slot firing out the back center. The 35.5 is the back. The subs will sit in the front. I hope it will work cause this is the cheapest way to gain a ton of output. If you think it would be better with 15s let me know. 26535255

I'm thinking you only have around 11.59ft3 gross or some where in that area anyway.

you could probably do a 51 on music with 2 15s and the power you have...

I dont know. So far the car likes the subs far back in the hatch. I wont be able to do that with 15s. They will have to be right behind me

The 12s should get nasty but I'm going to have to tune higher. With all the deadener the car is peaking high as hell.

Why do you insist upon going with DC? That might be the source of your problems right there.

lmao... I know a few people that run them and they do fine but I would never run dc... the old softparts maybe but the m2 designs are junk.

Problem? Every issue I have had with DC subs has been from my own doing. If they where bad subs they wouldnt hold records right now. Find me another 12 that will preform in 1.5 cubes. These are the most musical loud drivers I have ever heard that will fit where I need them to. Dont say the soft parts are junk cause every high power woofer out there has had issues do to misuse

I would say, more of this...

I wouldn't say DC is "the problem" but your application and how it loads may like other subwoofers better. Down side, you will never know with out testing.

im not mad. Everybody hears one horror story and forgets about all the others that have had the same story.

I have experience with them... I wasnt too impressed.

I have seen a lot of failures of DC subs in person at comps and people posting about them online. Not to mention some people have reported significant gains just by swapping in other subs in place of their DC's. Pro Rabbit has the right idea, that other subs could possibly work better for your application but you will never know if you don't try them.

DC does not build burp subs. They build high power daily subs. Used for that purpose they are hard to touch. They just happen to get pretty **** loud when set up right. My biggest issue is the car I'm trying to get loud in. It may be a hatch but it's a round strange shaped hatch with hardly any flat surfaces. About being impressed, I've heard a few Sundown builds that didn't impress me. Does that mean they are not good? I've seen enough blown amps to steer me away from them also. Mostly bad installs.

Most companies do not actually build "burp subs" on the production floor. They just happen to work great in that type of atmosphere. What I was implying is that every sub will react differently in each application and in your case a simple swap may net a far better result...then again.....it may not.
