    Rockford 1000.1BD and $1,000 to blow

    I have a Rockford Fosgate 1000.1BD amp that puts out around 1200 watts. I'm getting rid of my current subs (Mass2012's) and am looking for any thoughts. I'm looking for a pair of 12's. I'm looking for a SQL/SPL sub. I would love to hit around 150+
    My budget is $800-$1,000

    Thanks

    P.S. I'm looking to learn a lot more about car audio. Where? School's, Book's?

    alright well that amp only does around 600watts rms b/c RF rates there amps at peak i believe i could be wrong but i think i'm right. anyway, i would say get 1 DD9500 maybe the DD3500. or if you really want 2 subs get 2 DD3500 series subs. that is a sub i recommend for almost pure SPL now a mix get 2 brahmas. that's my #1 suggestion for spl and aq.

    everyone says that the brahma has much better sq than the w7, but doesn't get quite as loud. My vote would be to get a pair of brahma 12" subs and put them in 4cubic feet, ported, tuned to 40 Hz or so if you want spl, and if you want more sq that goes hellaciously low, tune it to 24Hz-30Hz. The brahmas will do well in sealed too.

    also, to look into spl, the blueprint 03 series... maybe a pair of 15s or pair of 12s

    DEQ-P9 (30band eq L/R, time alignment, 36dB/oct 4 way crossover)
    Soundstream Tarantula (for subs)
    Precision Power PCX-4125 (for horns and midbasses)
    Image Dynamics CD2 comp mini horns
    Scan-Speak 7" 18W/5535A midbasses
    Subs still pending.

    buy 2 12" eclipse titaniums on ebay. they are $300 each but you can get other places for like $600. they hit harder as a mutha.

    just because it says 1600 watts RMS doesn't mean you need to put that much to it. No sub will "need" a certain amount unless it is horribly inefficient or insensitive. The brahma however, because of its linear BL curve, does more with 1200-1600 watts than do other subs...

    as you apply more power to normal, non xbl subwoofers, they need more and more power to acheive their maximum excursion, wheras xbl allows more maximum excursion with less power, not to mention the sound quality advantages of xbl.

    if you really wanted an amp to power the brahma right, wait until www.ampmanaurdio.com comes out with their 1600 watt amps, they will cost only 369 each, or in the mean time, go with a proven combo of the jbl bp 1200.1 at 285 shipped each.

    i know that i just thought i would say i thought i knew that to not sound like a ****. RF underrates there amps by like 100-300watts for the reason that they show the max i believe, i mean if they listed the 1500 as a 750watt amp and costs as much as it did ****, that would be too much money.

    wel,l every birthsheet ia hve seen, (10 or 12) of the newer amps, last 2 years, said RMS power @ 2 ohms, full pwoer, referring to 14.4 V, which most companies rate at...
    they post their Max power, but the RMS is actually the same. just the way they rate...

    i looked at about 15-25 RF amps yesterday at work just to proove i'm right. they all say in a big box with bold red letters on the top of the box MAXIMUM POWER OUTPUT. that and all the new amps excluding the bd series **** major nuts simply b/c there only about 50-59 percent efficient. oh and yes those are the 2002 line of RF amps.
