    Anyone want to help me pick out some subwoofers?

    A little background info. My last subs were 2 12" Arc Audio Flatlines, each in a 1.5 cuft sealed box. They were powered by 1600 Class A/B watts, which my stock electrical system couldn't handle at loud volumes. The Flatlines were great woofers, but I want something louder. I plan on getting a completely new box, and having it ported. The dimensions for the box will be ~50in x 20 in x 14 in, So I'll have alot of room to work with. I'm debating going with 3 10's that handle anywhere from 500-700W a piece, or a single 15 that handles around 2kw.

    Square or Circular is fine since the box will be built from the ground up. Let me know if there is anything I left out that would be helpful in the decision making process. I'd like to keep the subs under 5-600 dollars.

    flatlines sealed with class ab is going to be hard to beat in sq imo, but you can try.

    05 15" re maybe? and a good class d . good luck

    maybe just try a good class d on the flatlines before buying new subs? 2k +

    I'm not going for as much SQ as my previous setup. I don't want a sloppy sub, but it's fine if it doesnt match the Arc in the SQ dept.

    As for Fi, I don't know much about them. Are they more SPL or SQ oriented? Are they a quality sub?

    i definately think its worth trying a good class d amp on your flatlines first. go to a car audio store and see if they will connect 1 ...just to see? good clean power to your flatlines might make em way louder if the class ab was struggling with the weaker electrics.
