    What pair of 18's would you guys reccomend for about 200$

    Im looking to go a bit larger size driver for my Van.

    My amplifier is 800Wrms @ 1 ohm (Orion HCCA 250), but I am maybe thinking about wiring it down to a 2 ohm load because it gets hot as hell after a while, and melts my 100Amp fuses after a good long while of pounding it.


    I was thinking twoMJ-18's by Mach 5. Or a single 18" subwoofer.. Ide really like a pair

    But will fit my RMS level. Im trying to stay loud or louder than my current setup, but also where my amplifier wont get so darn hot.

    Word. I'd run Mach5 over eD anyday .....if not for the differences in product quality but for the differences in customer service!

    Re: What pair of 18's would you guys reccomend for about 200$

    Well here is my idea as I think of this more and more. on ROE , it was said that they dont do as well MUSIC being hit with rated RMS, but they still had some reallllllly nice numbers in that test.

    So if an MJ-18 can handle 600Wrms. Tune correctly, a pair should be in 9cubes - 10cubic foot box. At 2 ohms.. My amplifier will supply with the vehicle on @ 2 ohm load. 500Wrms. So It wouldnt ever over power them, yet I could turn my gain all the way up and it problably wont heat up my amplifier ?? please correct me if I am wrong.

    Also, could I tune high .. say at about 50 Hz ?? Would that make RMS go down ?

    Or should I stay porting low ? Im kind of DEAD set on a pair of MJ-18 4 ohm VC.
