    wow .. so so subs and no shows this is great ill be waiting i think if i get any type of luck this should be back on track with a few missed shows(which ***** most)
    Anyhow stay tuned to build log and here to see whats happens.

    will lilboom ever compete again?

    You don't have the power or space for 2 high output 12s..
    It's a bad idea to build a huge box and shove it in the trunk in face it's going to hurt your output..
    In a Saturn you migh get 4.5 total..
    You need something with a softer suspension and stronger motor..
    You might want to call FI car audio and talk to them about a N2 15 with a dofter spider pace with the spl coils..
    Don't get the huge daily coil..
    It shoul do nicely in 3.75 tuned to 38 with 50in^2of port area..

    Not bad for trunk..
    It's peaky as he'll though..
    I sill say with the limited space a single 15 with softer spiders will do better..

    That trunk car smashed his 15" setup he had previously dc audio by the way and yes it was peaky at 31hz it was built to do one thing make it hard for you to breath on the low lows it was tuned 28hz as he wanted it tuned super low and just a daily ground pounder.

    I say 2-12's single 8" aero tuned 34hz call it a day the box will need to be designed to get optimal output.

    Re: Sub choice 150 db

    I've broke 150 with a 9515 but I had 3500rms and 4.5 cubes..
    You cant compare one setup to another without being specific.
    I can make a serially peaky system where 1 12 does 150 in almost any cabin..

    Btw the sub and box alone doesn't promise great numbers there is slot more to it..

    Ethier way you need a solid electrical system and you need to takes some measurements as well..
    Measure ur cabin length, width and width..
    The trunk length width and height..
    Budget etc..
