    1 sub more efficient that 2?

    since everyone knows alot about type-r's i had a question. I only have about 3.5 cubes before displancement to work with.

    I have 2 12" R's

    i was wondering, considering my space, if it would be more efficient to run one instead of 2 subs.

    And, if 1, what should the size and port area be? To get as LOUD as possible. I want to use either 4" or 6" aeros. Let me know.


    Thanks!

    loud like tommyk? good luck with that. you first need a little truck.


    i'd for sure do one 12 in that amount of space. through testing 1 6'' aero beets 2 4's. so i'd do 2.5 - 2.75 cubes @ 34 with 1 6'' aero for a daily driver



    4x 12" HDC3's
    1x Hifonics Maxximus (rated 10,000@1ohm)
    2x Powermaster D3100
    8x runs of 0 gauge
    1x stock alt

    155.2 dB legal (vehicle off and @50Hz) in a Ford exploder

    IMO, 1 driver in am ideal box at the same power will be more efficient then 2 in a less then ideal box 9 times out of 10.

    shot your dimensions and I tell you what you can get done.

    All conditions considered, this man speaks the truth.

    I suggest what other people have said: sell the 12s and get a 15. It isn't about the amount of speakers you have, it's what you do with them that counts. Find any kid at a school who has "subs", and he'll almost ALWAYS say 2 12" somethings. It seems that to most people more is better, when in fact, more can be less quite easily. You won't have twice the output, so I say to sell the 12s, get a 15, and pocket some cash. Done deal.

    Oh, and without trying to **** ****, wanting the same results as tommyk is kinda like a 2nd grade magician wanting to be like david copperfield.
