    Would this be louder than my current set up?

    So right now I have a DD9500d motor with RE SX softparts, and I'm thinking of doing an upgrade. I might buy a Fi BTL15 with all basic parts. I would still run it off my RE 12.1 (eventually upgrade to something with more power) and use my current box, which is 3.5 cufeet tuned to 34 hz. Would that be a lot louder than the sub I run right now? Also, I'm only going to use this for daly driving.

    Re: Would this be louder than my current set up?

    I'd get it with some of the upgrade parts, so later u can throw 2,500 at it daily and it'll take it like a champ. But yeah , I think it'll be a little louder, not much till u get another amp.

    Why not recone it to a 9500? Why would you ever put RE soft parts on a DD motor?

    When you order the recone from DD be sure to order a new basket, basket to motor spacer and new screws for the basket to motor. Your not the first person we have sent recones to for that DD9500/RE soft parts sub. The DD9500 design does not like RE soft parts.

    The freight to send the sub to DD and back will be about $60-70 total . If you send it to DD you know it will be done right.
