    It's hard to say. You aren't capable of building your own enclosure? The cheapest route would be to try the DCON ported and if it isn't enough you can go from there. But if you are paying for someone to build an enclosure every time you change your setup it becomes expensive.

    With the help of people on here I'm sure you could do it. All you really need is a jigsaw, drill, and have lowes make most of your cuts. If you do have someone build it you can tell them that you might upgrade to a GCON and have them design something that the GCON would work in as well. Would you upgrade your amp if you go with a different sub?

    The kenwood's sub level should be all the way up, the sub level is not bass boost. Put it in a ported on a better amp putting out 600 watts and you're good to go.

    Re: Not impressed

    what kind of truck are you putting this sub in ?????, one 12 on 400rms can get plenty loud in the right enclosre trust me. just installed an exile 12d 500rms sub in a mini van and the van shakes lol

    if you really want to get loud get another 12 run the boston at 2 ohms bridged for 300 wattts on each sub ported. you will really get loud

    Go to home depot with a cut sheet and they will cut it all for you. Rent a router or get yourself a jigsaw and cut the speaker holes out. You don't need a ton of tools. Go ported and that Dcon will be louder... won't 'wang' but it'll be a lot better.

    I love my GCONS... I have 2 in my truck right now and they are getting 1krms each and they are very happy with that. I have 2 more waiting to go in once it warms up and I build a new box.

    I'm not trying to showoff, and a video is a fairly useless thing to base anything on anyway. I was just showing that you don't need a ton of power just because a sub is rated at 1750 RMS. When I get done I am hoping to have less flex with the two XCONs.

    I'm running a single Gcon 12" in a hatchback in a completely wrong box. About 1.2 cu ft ported. Kicker 1500.1 wired to 2 ohm, ****** is loud. Doesn't hit all the notes but I know it's the **** box. I'm fixing that soon!!

    not true. the sub channel is clean up to 35/35 on +1db. +3db@34/35, +5db@33/35, +7@32/35, etc, etc. if you are setting the gains for your amps with the sub control all the way up on an Excelon, do so at 28/35. however, I chose to set mine at max volume with the sub out at 0db, since the front and rear channels will not distort at any volume.
