Re: Give me your opinion...
In my opinion, car audio is for your listening satisfaction, not to impress friends.

A buddy of mine recently built a box for 3 15's in his Beretta. He is running two 450 watt Lanzars and one JL W0 off of an MTX 6500. They are all in a sealed (except for the small cracks that result from the box building) in a supposed 8 cubic feet box. The trunk lid rattles like sheet metal and the lights dim in his car.
Now supposedly, this setup will beat my AW1505X in a 3.2 cubic feet custom ported box in a 94 Saturn SC2. Another friend of mine and I hooked up an old V12 two channel amp and gave my sub around 400 watts or so, 600 shy of its recommended RMS, and I think my setup is WAYYYY louder and sounds much much better than his. Even with only 400 watts, it knocked pretty well. He claims that his system will beat mine in the SPL department easily. I will soon have my Planet Audio 1250d (whenever it comes in the mail) and I will be runnin the sub at one ohm, and giving it all 1250 watts. I'm not new to this field at all, and know a lot about car audio, but I just wanted everyone elses opinions about this.
