    24 12inch dc level 3 m2's questions

    I'm looking to start a new build and do 24 12inch dc level 3 m2's. Now I was wondering if I should use a bunch of little Amps or I was thinking 2 optidrive 12001d's a 2 channel 12k now if I have 12 woofers on 1 amp will there be cancellation?

    Man hope you have deep pockets... You would probably have to run a couple amps

    box design determines if you have cancellation, not how many amps you run.

    Doesn't sound like it.

    What's that smell? *sniff sniff* Oh! It's the smell of electrical fires, blown woofers, and dollars being burnt.

    1) If you had the money for 24 DC's you would have money for quality amps. (Not saying opti's are bad i love the old ones, Just not on par with DC)
    2) If you think amps are the cause of cancellation, You are definitely not ready for a build of this magnitude. Multiple subs are not easy. Plus your going to need batteries out the rear and alternator to run the amps to push them

    Just let the man buy his 24 DCs on 1 day air, and hook them up to a AudioPipe 3k, more power to you!

    Post a build log

    As long as you gain match everything you will be fine. They wont be perfectly matched but you don't want more than a tenth of a volt different when setting gains. For all the people saying you don't get cancellation from amps have you ever done a build like this? Box is the biggest problem for cancellation, but poorly gain matched can cause some minor cancellation.

    Weather can cause cancellation as well. Make sure you check the weather channel before you start this build.
