View Full Version : SQL - Two 12s or three?

07-12-2013, 10:26 PM
Equipment I got:

Two American Bass HD12s
Three Obsidian Audio OA12s V1

3kw clarion power.

4-5 cubes net for HD12s
6 cubes net for OA12s

Both ported 12" port per cube, 30-33hz

Mazda 3 sedan. Yes I can fit them no problem.

What would you guys pick? I only want to build one box.

I would like the OA-12's. Is there any way to get that port area up some though? The HD's will want more than that.

Yea with the HDs I can give them lots more port, I figured they'd want it. The OAs I don't really have the room unless I tune higher.

You should be fine with OA's I would think. The OA's will probably sound better overall.

Another factor in the decision should be final impedance load, assuming that 3K is a single amp. (3 subs will typically = 1.33 ohm or 2.66 depending)
