    8-12's vs 6-15's vs 4-18's

    I plan on doing a blow through in my truck i measured with the toneau cover on i have around 35 cubes for the whole bed being used inside the fender wells. Recall it was 49x62x20 right around 35 cubes

    I will have the power and batteries to back it up at the moment i dont. I will add a 300amp alt, big batt upfront, and 4-8 batteries in the back prob looking into 6

    forgot to add a place for batteries so minus about 10" on the length, so prob around 30 cubes is what i will have after i make room for batts and amps. unless i mount the amps inside the cab which i doubt since there is no room for enough amps.

    Anyway the subs i am looking into i want to be able to do a 10k watt setup or w/e power is needed to give the rms on the subs. I was looking at possibly BTL, XXX, L7's, IA, or maybe even some nightshades, or maybe some RD's

    anyone ever done a big system please post here in which will be louder for daily system only will do some competeing but this will be my daily driver just want to do something unique and very loud. Also concerding type R's haha.

    So what setups would give me the best results.

    Thanks

    i would take advantage of the 20" height, maximize the space and use 18's. They'll fit perfect.

    Re: 8-12's vs 6-15's vs 4-18's

    not sure and yea i got right in between 19-20" on the height will be a tight squeeze but i think i can do the 18's gives me with the wood if i only use 3/4 mdf looking at 19.5 so should be just about pefect.

    I was wanting to fire them foward but cant do that since its not wide enough so prob on each side of the bed facing one another with the port comming from the back of the box running down into where the subs fire.

    no way how much airspace is each 18 gonna take up, plus i got to account for port area as well so tops 35 cubes each 18 needs prob what 6-8 cubes not gonna wor 6x6 36 top room i got is 35 before any displacement, but i will have no room for batts or amps so gonna cut it down to 30 cubes

    Re: 8-12's vs 6-15's vs 4-18's

    Also looking to do something that can handle for the 18's something that will handle around 2500rms a piece, for the 15's something around 1500 a piece, and the 12's something around 1000 a piece

    wanting to stay around 8-10k watts. Figure with a 300amp HO alt big battery upfront andd 4-6 big ones in the back with big 3 done and 4 runs of 1/0 from front to back with 4 runs of grounds to the front battery or frame as well. That should be able to handle 8-10k watts right or am i way off???

    Well if you get a new alt with an adjustable voltage, you'll need some step down mods to cut voltage to your cars electrical.
    Or another way is to run a 12v alt and 2 flux caps to put 18v into your back 16v batts

    16v is harder and more work but yields more power
