    Icon31 (2) RE SE 12's sealed vs. (1) RE XXX 12 ported

    First, hello everyone, glad to be here, this is my first post. Yep, a noob with a noob question.

    Second, I don't want this to turn into a "What is the best sub?" question or debate. I'm not asking which is better, only for opinions and feedback for my specific application. I've narrowed my choice down to 2 combo's as stated in the title. Daily driver, looking for SQL, won't compete, and I listen to rock, rap, country. I'll give specifics on each one, so here goes.

    2001 Ford Ranger extended cab, so I'm limited on space. I still need some use of the back for gear bags and such. Sub amp is the following: X1.2000.1D
    http://www.lightningaudio.com/2004/p....asp?prodID=12

    My first option is 2 RE SE 12's in a sealed box. The box is 1.25 per sub total, 1.1 net, downfiring. The SE's call for 1.0 so this is pretty close. I know this is a lot of power to throw at them for daily, but I can be conservative with gain settings.

    Second option is 1 XXX 12 in a 2.5 net ported box tuned to 32-34 hz, per RE's specs. I'm assuming the sub will be upfiring, I don't know if or how a downfiring ported box would work. From what I've heard the XXX will love the power of that amp.

    Thanks in advance for opinions and feedback, any constructive coment's will be greatly appreciated.

    Re: (2) RE SE 12's IB vs. (1) RE XXX 12 ported

    Where the infinite-baffle (IB) come into play here?



    No speaker, in the history of speakers, has ever been blown by too little power. Ever. I don't care what your friend told you, he's a dirty liar.

    No opinions? I feel so loved.

    Which one would you choose and why?

    Re: (2) RE SE 12's sealed vs. (1) RE XXX 12 ported

    The SEs will have more quality, the XXX will have more output. I would personally recommend the XXX because it's just less of a hassle than having two woofers to worry about, and with the power you have it would be just insane. =) You could wire it to 1 ohm and have this wanging tailgate party pickup, then wire it to 4 ohm for a kick *** SQ DD.

    XXX ported. Run it in a low tuned enclosure and the SQ will be amazing. When you set the gains on that amp, just set it to produce the speakers RMS and you will be fine.
