    15" btl vs 2 18" bl's

    what are the pros and cons.what could i be expecting from both with the right electrical and power.i have the btl and a crunch 3000d pro now and love it but cant feed it the right power cause of electrical.was planning on getting a new alt soon or sell the btl and get 2 18" bl's get the alt later and run these on a aq2000
    need some help.what size alt would i need to run the crunch at full or close.

    I would get the alt first because you would need it for either setup and then up the cone area later

    i just ordered it so now which will get louder.im sure some of you will say the bl's but i was wondering will they get just as loud as the btl but with lower tuning.

    the bls will handle a lot more than that aq2000. i have 2-15" bl's and im pushing 2-aq2200 strapped and they handle no problem.

    Shavenblazer, if you aren't happy with that BTL you're crazy.

    Yes, 2 18s vs 1 15 should be much louder on the same power if things are done right.

    It takes skillz to get a single 15 louder than two 18's off around the same power (assuming the 18's have a decent install...)

    What kindof space are we talking about. Do you have enough room for 2 18's for a good size box.
