    cone area vs quality?

    would you guys rather have Tons of cone area from cheaper subwoofers or would u guys rather have WAY less cone area but using Excellent Woofers!?


    Example 24 12" Hifonics Hifi 12s vs 4 18" Fi q's or Btls?



    Had some problems but working them out donpisto is an grate guy for working with me still!

    Both have inherit problems. With the 24 12's, you'll need spares because undoubtedly you'll cook a few so your drivers easily become "consumables". The 4 18's are less surface area right of the bat and wont move as much air, but easier to manage (less wiring, and probably not as many crispy subs). I guess its just how much you want to deal with your setup.

    24 12's = ~9-10 18's worth of cone area

    if they aren't garbage *** 12's and you have space, it should be easily louder

    I never really investigated how much room I had....For reference though, my wall by itself exists in 24 cubic feet. But you run out of space quickly in a jeep once you add batteries, amps...air tanks...all that jazz

    Plenty. And if they're sealed, they'll take a bit more abuse and you wont have to worry about tuning them. win/win

    xmax does not mean too much as far as spl goes.

    Your woofs won't be moving much regardless at tuning frequency
