    Re: NEED HELP with 2 12" alpine type r and a 15"

    The only way to mix match sub sizes is to have them fully crossed over. Like having the 12"s do 35-40+ and letting the 15 take over on the low lows...But in your case, I would sell the 15 and get another 12" or sell the 12"s and run another 15"...

    Yes

    If your not going to listen about mixing subs dont expect help. SUV/Jeeps get loud with Subs Up Port Back
