    fi Q 12"

    i was just wondering i looked on fi's website and the amount of airspace for these subs are somewhat small so i was wondering if thats all you need to give them ported or do you go bigger

    i might consider them considering the room i have

    also on xmax is that how much the sub moves in and out and doesnt that mean the more xmax the louder and more air it pushes

    You should also consider the 12" Kicker L7s. They would probably win in a loudness contest.

    Re: fi Q 12"

    Depending on what your buying the sub for, you'd be better with the Fi Q's. Are you looking for Sound quality or for SPL? The Q's are a great sub for music, but not as hardcore for winning SPL comps compared to the BL's. And forget the Kicker L7's, they're not as great as people think. I beat a guy last year that was running a pair of 15" L7's with my two 10" Fi BL's. Also smoked a guy running JL 13W7's.

    Re: fi Q 12"

    well i plan on putting 2 l7's ported on a kicker 1500.1 but i only have right around 5net and i figured that might be a lil small and with the fi ss

    thats the subs i was also considering the fi ss or the re's se

    the airspace for the fi's are
    Ported box: 1.8-2.5 cuft @ 28-33Hz i thought that was small for such a power and big sub

    also would 2 of those ported tuned at 32hz with 5 net be louder than 4 of those sealed in a 5cuft net box consideirng all getting their rated rms power

    and the re sx only calls for 1.5-2net per sub ported

    i am wanting something for pure loudness would like a clean bass note though not sloppy and muddy

    so question is 4 12's sealed or 2 12's ported say if i went with the fi ss

    Re: fi Q 12"

    As far as box size, it depends on the sub. My 10" BL's require a lot less space than other brands of 10" subs. Kicker subs require more airspace than anyone else. Normally the smaller the enclosure the more power it handles, the larger the enclosure the less power. But it also depends on what you want to do with the subs. With a larger enclosure you can tune lower to hit the lows in music, with a smaller enclosure you tune higher for playing tones.
