    Need help deciding!

    ok, for my new system, i've already choosen the CDA-7995, but that's as far as i've gotten. for subs, i think i've limited it to 2 E12K4's, 2 12" shiva's, 2 RE SE's, 1 12" X-Treme II, or 2 Shocker III's. i know this is probably a lot to ask, but i have no access to any of these without buying them first, so i'm going to have to trust your judgement. bascially, my goals are (1) it has to hit at least 140db's, (2) sound decent while doing it, and (3) sound really good at low levels. if you can rate these in a specific order, or just tell me which one's are better for what (SQ, SQL, SPL) that would be great. Thanks in advance.

    ok, i've limited it down more, 2 E12KD4's, or 2 12" shiva's. which one would be better for SQ, SQL, and SPL? also, what's a good amp to run the 2 shiva's off of, my only idea right now is a JBL 600.1.

    The 600.1 wouldnt be enough for a pair of shivas by a long shot. It would power one of them well. Get a 1200.1 or something that puts out 1200 watts at 2 ohms for the shivas, and maybe a 800-1200 watt amp for the e12k's, like this one:

    You might want to look at an audiobahn amps too, they seem pretty good to me, with awesome features and i havent heard anything bad about them.
    I was thinking about the e12k's and the shivas, but I am probably going to go with an e12a, for sq purposes. Good luck

    i don't even think a "1200W" lanzar could put out 300W. my friend had a 400x2 made by lanzar, hooked it up to my subs, could barely hear the subs over the rest of the speakers, i'm staying far away from lanzar and legacy and all the rest of those k-mart brands.

    oh and the 81000d will put out well over 1000 watts rms at 2 ohms. They are underrated.
    now that i think about it, the 81000d is probably a really good bet for either pair of subs.

    Dont be silly, lanzar opti's are very different from vibes and viberants. mine runs clean as ****, and doesnt get hot either. im sure your buddy was running a vibe as something other than 1.33 ohms, which they are rated for for some reason. Opti's are the ****, and most people dont know that, but the mtx seems a good amp for your application.
