Hi. I'm new to the forum and this is my first post.
I know there's millions of the comparison threads (because the search tool is a wonder), but what's one more?
My current (and first) set up consists of a JL Audio 13W3 pushed by a JL 500/1. I'm building a new box for it. The current one is sealed and built to the specs on JL's site, but I think I can get more out of it. I'm building a ported box (about 3 cubic feet) tuned to 27 hz, today, to see how the sub will take the bigger, ported box.
I also want to upgrade. Eventually, I wanna ditch this 13W3 (although it is a great sub) for something louder, more powerful, whatever you wanna call it. I'm looking for 2 12" subs I can put in a ported box and feed them 1100 watts a piece at 1 ohm. (fyi, the car's a 2001 Maxima with stock electrical.) I want the subs to sound good and hit accurately, but it ain't fun if it ain't loud.
I'm looking at the DC Audio Level 4s, the FI Audio BLs, and the Audioque HDC3s and I'm pretty set on pairing them with an AQ2200d. Anyone who would like to give their personal experience with either of these subs (or amp) and what they'd recommend, feel free to do so.
Also, If someone would like to tell me what specs I should pay attention to when it comes to spl and sq and so on, it's be great.
Just knocking out all my questions in one post, sorry for the novel. Thanks!
