    1 get rid of all those subs and get 4 matching subs, or better yet get 2 really nice subs and dump the four 2 15s would work, 4 15s would be better... also your gonna need alot of power and an electrical system to back it up to hit mid 150s... try hitting a 145 first then a 150 then a 152.5 then maybe u can get higher.....

    Re: 1997 ford expedition 4 12 in subs

    a) throw the cap out in the street
    b) pawn or sell existing equipment
    c) you can get some decent 15s and test, test, test


    Although I am huge fan of the 'various sub and size' combinations that seem rather popular these days.

    That setup looks good, just make a bigger ported box...

    a) looks like you may need a little more port area with a bigger box.
    b) it is really really hard to hit 150 with two 12s with your expedition without buying new equipment. I hate to say it is impossible, but I know folks with much more time and $$ and effort and are only in the mid 140s.

    Setup looks okay though


    I dunno if those amps are pushing 2.4k each.

    Re: 1997 ford expedition 4 12 in subs

    2400 max.. that was inferred by most when 3 amps, 2 sets of different subs, cap, and wanting to hit 150s were all mentioned.

    to the thread starter.. id say stay out of the street a and street b cause its really tough to do well in those classes with your truck. if you want a wall it will be easier to hit 150s but few people are willing to make that sacrifice. you have to knwo how bad you want 150db cause it will take a lot of money, patience, and knowledge to some extent, though some people just shell out money in place of knowledge and end up doing alright haha.
