    2 10's and 1 15' in the same box???

    so i have a very very large.... like 6ftx2.5ftx2ft box that is sittin on my entire backseat of my dodge ram 1500.... it has 3 10 alpine type r's facing the roof with the port all the way across the bottom blowing forward.... yes it is chambered off.... but i have enough room on the top to cut the hole out bigger for a 15" in the middle of 2 of the type r's and i wanted some lower bass... would there be a problem with doing this if i had my rockford fosgate t1000.1bd running the two type r's and find something else to run the 15"?...

    Really it is not the best idea, also your assumption that a 15 will give you lower bass is wrong especially thrown into an enclosure that wasn't made for it.

    1. What are the specs of the enclosure?
    2. What 15?

    Where did you get the enclosure? Three 10" type r's in a proper enclosure should be very loud.

    Sell the r's add that to your 2-3 hundred and buy two 15's.

    Yes it is more cone area, so it should be louder. The most important part will be a good enclosure though. If the enclosure for your r's isn't right you might want to try a new one before changing equipment.

    Two of these if you can do $550 GCON-15 Sound Solutions Audio 15" 750W GCON Series Subwoofer - SSA STORE

    Depending on the layout of the box if you are able to knock out the walls separating the chambers or cut the centers oit making them into braced... You may be able to salvage the box and use it for 2 15s or you can leave the box as is and make the cutouts larges enough for 3 12s since 2-2.3cube is good for most 12s

    I have heard them and they are awesome for their price. If you step your budget up the Icons can take twice the power.
