Re: Need Advice on dual 12" audiobahns + box
Ahhh the lovely smell of a blown sub. That always *****. Your blown sub is probably more due to it being clipped by the amp...which means your amps gains were prob set to high. Did you use bass boost to make it louder and how did you set your gains? This is the most cause for blown speakers.
What's your budget? I would look into some subs that will due 1000 RMS - 2000 Peak and an amp that will push a true 1000 watts RMS. Build a slot ported box with pretty of breathing room for that sub. If this is your first build I would work with someone that has experience building enclosures and tune it to your car as well. If your Civic has the small back seat located in the middle, build your port to feed right into the car. I can give you more specific recommendations once I know your budget.
I am from the Old School Audio era. I collect vintage car audio; I have roughly about 40 plus amps, 20 plus subs, dozens of sets of mids, highs and components, 14 eqs/processors, and numerous other old school equipment. I have several old school jewels amongst my collection. I have also collected some nice Japanese and German made audio while I lived in Japan and Germany. I do bring the new school as well with my six Memphis Mojo's, two AudioQue 3500.1D, RF Power 30001BD, Sundownsubs, etc...
