    Crazy Idea...

    Does anyone think putting 2 12"s,1 8", and 1 10" in one box a good idea? lol sounds crazy, but does anybody know what could happen?

    It would sound like crap if they were all playing the same frequencies. If they were playing different frequencies, then it's way overkill and completely unnecessary.

    nothing is overkill. you should learn that if your into car audio. just make different crossovers for each sub to only play certain frequencys. or make a way to turn on and off each sub for different types of music you are listening to

    If someone wants to waste their time, energy and money doing something completely unnecessary (and slightly worthless) then more power to them. It is 100% unneeded, so why even bother?

    Re: Crazy Idea...

    If they're playing the same frequencies then it's completely worthless because of cancellation problems. If you've got crossovers on everything so they are playing exactly the frequencies they like then you're okay, but it's just not worth it.

    When talking about sub frequencies you're talking 20 - 80ish Hz....this is not a wide enough spectrum to split up between 3 different sized drivers IMO. Get yourself a good quality 15 with a well designed enclosure and call it a day.

    Re: Crazy Idea...

    a 15 is not going to respond as fast as a 10 or 8 in. people go with smaller subs cause they want to hear the bass note not just feel and and hear the rattle of there car

    Completely false and a great big car audio myth. Woofer "speed" and "sound" (punchy, etc) is dependent upon the box, not the diameter of the sub.


    We actually just had this conversation in another thread: http://forums.caraudio.com/vb/showthread.php?t=74565 - read pages 2 & 3 I believe.

    So if you have having problems with a 15" sounding "slow" or "muddy", the problem is the box and or tuning and not the sub itself.

    If I may add to this..........you also need to upgrade your mid-bass/mid speakers and tweeters. They affect the sounds you are refering to as "slow" "muddy" bass or your bass not being tight enough.

    Do you still have your factory speakers hooked up?





    The bitter after-taste of a poor quality job will last far longer than
    the sweetness of that cheap price!

    Re: Crazy Idea...

    What size drivers are you running right now? I'll bet my car sounds cleaner than yours on the whole sound spectrum...and I'm not even running comps.

    On a serious note though, woofer size has nothing to do with the "punchyness" of the driver....not sure if the link that was posted up a few posts ago has the adire audio explanation of this, but you should read it...explains it quite nicely.

    P.S. I don't like to hear the rattle of my car either...and well, I don't...barely rattles (sound deadener is a great thing).

    Bwahahahahha.. Thats hillarious!


    But back to topic :

    If you did that w/ all those sub's, it would be a COMPLETE waste of money....it would be pointless.

    Kinda like HUGE wings on imports....What does it actually do? I mean I don't mind people who put them on there because they like them, but I hate the ignorant people who "know" it does something...
