    How many speakers to keep up with 4000+wrms of bass?

    Just curious but how many speakers and how many watts would you need so your music wont get drowned out by 4000+WRMS of bass?

    Stupid question... '4kw of bass' is not a measurement of sound

    But for a reference, I have 3kw and an 18 4HP and I can hear the words with my factory speakers.

    Please try and use a bit of common sense before making a thread. It will benefit you and the rest of the members.

    I have around 800 to my highs/mids and 2500 to my sub. Blends well.

    Of course I don't really use all that power daily. But lets just say there is plenty of head room.

    Probably should have made your question "what power levels are you running?"

    I don't use the full 800 watts. I would be deaf. I use much less like mentioned head room.
