    Upgrade consideration

    Currently im running 2 SPLAudio built 12s rated at 1500w rms each running on 2 SK-1500.1Ds wired at .5 each amp. box is 4.6cubes @ 30hz

    I dont think these woofers (built with 3' 4-layer coil on DAD BD motors) can handle the power they are getting at .5ohms so im considering the following two options:

    (a) Upgrade to 2 beefy 2k-2.5k rms 12s and drop them in the current box

    or

    (b) Get a single beefy 3-4krms 15" woofer and wire them off the skars strapped at 1ohm? Assuming proper box size comparable to the one i have now.



    ** NEW VEHICLE AND BUILD ** 2003 Jeep Liberty Sport
    2x SPLAudio DAD BD 12s
    2x SK-1500.1s
    Box 5 cubes @ 29hz
    XS Power D3100 & D2400
    Tenney 270A
    4x PowerBass 3xl 6.5s

    I'd do the single 15 with double the power but either idea is probably gonna be pretty sweet.

    Re: Upgrade consideration

    Right, i just dont want to lose output. I have cone area with the 12s but the motor force of something like the SSA evil or SP4/Team would be more than 2 twelves of lesser sort

    Single 15s im looking at:
    SSA Evil
    Fi Team/SP4
    DC Level 5

    Dual 12s im looking at:
    Orion HCCA
    DC XL
    AA mayhem
    Sundown X/ZV4/ZV3
