Alright, well I just got my AudioControl Epic 150 in my dash, and of course, now I want to be louder. My 9515 is at 146 right now off my 2k6d at 0.5 ohm on a 45 hz tone. I want to break 150, and I'm thinking about doing something fun this summer. I don't want to buy a pair of HDC3 15s or another 9515 or anything like that. Also, I want to be able to use my 2k6d because people are bashing them, their resale value has dropped, and I love the little thing.
Therefore, lately, I've been looking for a way to greatly increase my surface area and use a sealed box. I thought about a bunch of 15s, like the MAW 15s from Mach 5, but I don't have the space to put enough back there without my amp burning them up. However, I did find a great deal on some Audiobahn AW1051t subs. Little 10" woofers, handle around 300 rms. My first system was a pair of AW1251t 12s, and they were great back in the day. So I think the 10s will be good for this plan.
So here is my idea:
10 Audiobahn AW1051t 10" Dual 4 ohm subs (all of them will wire to 0.8 ohm)
They will only cost me $345 for all 10, so for $34.50 shipped a piece brand new, I think it's a good deal.
Now on to the box. Quite frankly I don't have enough space to run 10 10s on one surface. But I don't want to put 10 10s back there and just get a bunch of cancellation, so I want to make sure this will work. My initial thought was a sealed clamshell, around 7.5 cubes net, for 0.75 per 10. However, is there any theory behind clamshell boxes? I have found none.
Something like this, but with 10 10s instead of 8 15s:
But that was just my initial thought, would a bandpass be better? I don't know anything about a bandpass, so I thought I would ask.
