    The crappy meter is going to meter higher than a TL, in most cases. Usually a TL is the hardest to get a good score on, because it's actually accurate when calibrated correctly.

    I'm really not sure you'll need that extra SK1500.1. With even 1000rms each they'll be fairly close to their limits surely? Giving them more sounds like a recipe for disaster. Could throw an 18 in that box, considered that?

    On the 1680 @1ohm before rise this subwoofer takes it like a champ, I wouldn't be surprised if both subwoofers could take 2 SK1500.1's.
    Plus SKAR has yet to release their 18" (once the 1500watt line is released there will be)

    didn't realised you had this gained to take the full power of that SK1500! That's awesome man, would not have expected that, especially in a box of this size. In that case by all means throw another amp on two 15s.

    Well there was some discussion of it being too much power/bottoming out/unloading etc, well on full tilt, there is no sounds of bottoming out, nor any mechanical noises, subwoofer does not get warm at all, no smells etc.

    We'll see where this goes after adding that second 15, then after that snag a second SK1500.1 should be quiet.

    That's ideal hahaha. Can't get my head around that meter reading then, needs to go on a TL for sure.

    So by ear I can already hear a difference in that 35hz tone from Saturday and today (Saturday we had rain so that might have been the issue) I also put 1/0 AudioTechnix OFC wire from my negative to the strut bolt in my car, I'll be doing the engine block and + of the alternator this coming weekend and my voltage is already slightly better.
