    2 15's under window vs 2 18's walled

    well i got about 10 cubic ft under the window line so i figured thats good enough for 2 15's or i can wall it and get about 13 cubic ft which is good for a small box for 18's i've been looking and havent found anybody with 2 15's under the window line except for a guy that had to havoc 15's i believe off a kicker 2500.but im looking for a 150+ in the 30hz region and i also seen a guy that had 2 btl 18's off 2 saz 3000d's and pulled a nice hairtrick and can trick.its going in a sonoma so any help will be appreciated. not sure on amps yet but i know it'll be about 4000 - 6000 watts.i was looking at AQ but i dont think they'll get as low as i want i got a 9518 sounded good but just didnt hit the lows to good

    You can always tune DD/AQ's to 35Hz if you really want to emphasize the lows. I did 149@34Hz out of the trunk with 2 15" AQ's, so I think they drop plenty low...

    you can get 150+ with the 15's.Dean Umlandt did a 151+ in either an s-10 or sonoma in the '05 IASCA world finals with i believe 12's with only i extra battery.its all in the box design.

    Re: 2 15's under window vs 2 18's walled

    well the only problem is i dont have the cubic ft to really hit the lows i can do about 5-.5.5 cubic ft a piece and not alot of port and i dont wanna suffocate the dd's or AQ if i run them but im thinking if i get about 2500 wats to each woofer i might be able to even it out im really wanting to run 18's though but fi and ascendant are the only ones i know that do good in small boxes.what cubic ft are your 15's in

    not sure how many cubes he had his 12's in,but in my cut thru i'm using a little over 8 cubes for my 2 loaded 15 btls.i have a little more room to play with though since my cut thru is in my ram pickup.

    I had two Sundown NightShade 15s in 5.8ft net volume tuned to 36hz and they picked up the lows very well. That setup burped a legal 150.6 powered by a pair of Sundown saz-1500s.
