    Re: powerbass subs

    powerbass pro 12. sub is huge. requires ALOT OF POWER. I own the powerbass extreme 12. loud,handles ALOT of power. LOUD i tuned mine lower for a better sound, but tuned higher to spl specs it is real loud. extreme 12 dual 2 ohm is on ebay for only$ 169. same 12 spoke frame as the alot more expensive re,adire,and every other company,Powerbass also is a speaker manufactor so they build their own products.

    A single 15in. xs ported will get the job done. They get very loud and sound good. 3.5 to 4 cubes ported each tuned to 35 hz...50 in. of port. Great subs you can get them new for about 250.00 shipped .

    get a bigger amp, and sell one of those subs to get a bigger amp, should be fine say 1500d, or you could go 1000W rms TRUE power, hmmm your choice also uumm ported box, say 34 hZ or lower for a SQL setup. heck sell all the subs and get one sub in a big box, with the power as stated , since you like JL get a 12W7 or something....or type R...hehehehehe R!
