    Re: two 10's or one 12?

    oh, but dont forget. One 12" will SURELY get lower and louder than a 2 10's because 10's just ****

    *sarcasm*... just wanted to get it over with, because we all know someone would seriously post that...

    Anyways, two tens... but it'll probably be a bit more expensive.

    edit: both are 10"s....

    Hmm.... Won't really be enough for the RF's.. I guess it will work though!

    Those subs get pretty **** loud at 150w... I have some ****** subs, and was running them at 600w, and the Rockfords got louder, deeper, and more clear. (two 12'a)

    Re: two 10's or one 12?

    Which amp is it? Do you have a model number?

    Based on that limited info, I would recommend the two tens.

    You should probably invest in a new amp, though.

    I have never really been a fan of tens, they just dont hit low enough or loud enough if your only getting two or no matter how many you get

    Re: two 10's or one 12?

    I had a similar debate.

    I went with the 1 12" sealed over the two 10s. I didn't have any extreme SPL goals or the like...I just felt like the 12 would provide a better balance with my front stage....but mainly because I already have the 12.
    With good install, the size and count of woofers is meaningless in most comparisons. I go for cost savings or ease of install, or "look pretty" or something.

    Why not run a P3 12?
    I hear the P3's have greatly improved from 1&2

    Keep in mind that two 10" drivers have roughly the equivalent cone area of one 15" driver.
