    Fi Bl

    I have a hifonics bx1500d. i want to get one FI BL for now and eventually upgrade amp and add more subs. But for now what options should i get on the BL and what size/ kind of box should i build? Obviously i know i need the dual 2-ohm, but other than that what other options because i'm not that familiar with these subs. it will be going in a jeep grand cherokee where max dimensions are 40" wide and about as high and deep as i need. lemme know how to set this up for sql. thanks

    The main options are p chamfer, cooling, and flatwind coil. The p chamfer is a part of the $40 cooling option. The flatwind coil increases thermal capacity. Therefore, all three options are designed to increase power handling. But a regular BL is rated for 1500 rms, and your Hifonics 1500 will not put out the rated 1500. So if you are going to add more Bls and more Hifonics 1500s, you do not need any of those options. However, if you plan to upgrade to a more powerful amp or amps, then you need to add some of the cooling options. I would recommend adding the cooling and flatwind coil incase you upgrade and also because it will increase your resale value.
