    Icon11 Need subwoofer help!!

    Hey Bassheads, I've recently purchased this subwoofer and enclosure (Ported)

    audioline AL12SF and enclosure (Google it because it won't let me post urls)

    The subwoofer is not super powerful as i was expecting and id like to upgrade when it blows, But im not sure about what shallow/slimline subwoofer would fit the 12" enclosure?
    It's virtually impossible for me to get a bigger box other than this!! I have a Utility car and it's got just enough space to fit this sub woofer

    I was thinking of getting a Kicker CVT 12" Shallow but i don't know if it will fit? The Audioline is around 180W RMS and the CVT is 400W RMS...

    Can anybody give me a helping hand of choosing a subwoofer to fit this enclosure?
    Please and thankyou!!

    Re: Need subwoofer help!!

    What sort of depth do you have in the box?

    Re: Need subwoofer help!!

    This is the info i got from Audioline.

    12" 305MM SUB IN ENCLOSURE - Single 12" subwoofer in enclosure flat series
    - 12" woofer with 40 OZ magnet & 2" voice coil
    - Max Power: 900 watts
    - Sensitivity: 91dB
    - Frequency Response: 32 - 800 Hz
    - Impedance: 4 ohm

    Dimensions are as follows: L x 46cm x W x 22cm x H x 38cm


    That's all they could get me...

    I'm not entirely sure of the Sub's RMS, it's 900W Max that's all i know, My amp is a Pioneer GM3500T, only 185-200W RMS continuous power, 400W Max, It's all i could afford at the time so im trying to figure out a sub that will fit the box so i can figure out a better suitable amp. It vibrates my mirrors a tiny bit and vibrates my rear-view a lot, my mids and highs are clear as a whistle, but i find it difficult to listen to trany sound and not a lot of bass, it kicks really hard but it suffers on lows and clips, even with the gains set really low and no bass boosts. the box is tuned for 32-800hz, which is fine for my UTE cabin, but a louder sub and better amp would be suitable for me, but my problem is it needs to fit this box specifically.

    Any ideas?

    Re: Need subwoofer help!!

    ask if they'll let you test fit it in your car (not hooked up)

    Re: Need subwoofer help!!

    Nowhere where i live sells those subwoofers, i have to order them from Elite Electronics, So i can't exactly test fit unless i buy the subwoofer :/...

    What do you recommend me do? i might take out the sub that's already in it and check how deep the magnet sits, and how deep the box is and then just figure it out from there?

    Sorry for not responding sooner. Yes, take the sub out of the box and measure the depth you have available. However, before you do that, put some power on the sub.
