Hello all, im sure you're getting tired of seeing my post but here's another. I have 2 sundown SA-12s that will be in a ported 3.5cuft tuned to 32hz with 56sqin of port area on a saz-1500d v.3 wired at 1ohm so about 1500watts with all 1/0 gauge XS flex wire with the big three about to be put in my car. also going with audio technix sound deadener.
My buddy has 1 Alpine type R in a prefab sealed box and 1 Alpine type S in a ported prefab box( i would think the type R would be in the prorted and the type s would be sealed but what ever thats his choice) with 4 gauge wire on a 2000watt max amp (both running on same amp) that me or him have no idea what the rms is but he says its wired to 4ohms.
Where im going with this is i have been told you wont be able to here a huge difference between the type r and the sa-12. His type r and type s sound "ok". it hits the lows a lot better than the xplod he had but thats common sence. The problem is his isnt loud at all. he turnes the volume up to 38 and i only feel my hair move a tiny bit. My brother had 2 cerwin vegas back in the 90s and i felt that **** in my chest.
How much louder will the sa 12s be with the setup im going with? i understand i have better wiring and i know a better amp but im also not trying to spend what i have been on something that sounds just a little better than the type r and s.
not sure how big of a difference it make but i have a hatchback (eclipse)and he has a sealed trunk(saturn ion) with 1 seat down
