    Ok op you'll need 4.5 ^3 for the xfl subs tuned to 33 hrtz. Also 2 of them should fit easy in your trunk. What I can tell you is that all Internet dealers who sell Ab products are not authorized to do so ie no Ab warranty I know this because I'm the west coast distributer for them

    If your planning to keep your amp go get yourself a pair of SSA Dcon's, had a pair off 500watts and it was ridiculous.

    Re: Looking to upgrade my pair of 12" Pioneers.

    That'd be good but i'm still looking for something louder. Im going against a buddy that has four 12" rockfords... they might actually be what you have if I remember right. I just need something as loud as that but obviously smaller. Hes got an upper hand with his Astro van...

    Re: Looking to upgrade my pair of 12" Pioneers.

    If it was me I would go with 2 sundown e-12's, a custom built ported box, hifonics brz-1200.1D, and some 0 gauge ofc to do the big 3 with if you haven't done so already if you can build your own box you can come in under budget and have a nice sounding decently loud system not saying you'll be louder than your friend that has double the cone area but it should be a substantial upgrade from the sounds of things.

    Re: Looking to upgrade my pair of 12" Pioneers.

    Ill have to look into that. Ive been interested in building boxes myself and selling them out so this may be a good time to test the waters.

    Re: Looking to upgrade my pair of 12" Pioneers.

    I think i'd have enough room, just a little tight. If I had to run another battery it wouldn't be the end of the world, just more chances of me getting creative. My co-worker said I wouldn't need another battery but another alternator. Idk which would be better in this predicament. If I did run a 2000+ amp i'd definitely be shakin my little four-door
