    Decision made! NO rear fill... but which ED K? 12K.14 or 12K.44?

    Ok, last time I ask about subs.... well, for a while anyway.....

    I decided rear fill was not an option, and I would be better off getting a sub. My girlfriend gets the USX4065 I already bought, and I will pickup a USX2080 to power the CDT CL-61a comps when they come in...

    Now, I am thinking that the USX600D is the best choice for a single ED K 12" sub, which I want to order soon! But, which one do I order? What are the benefits of ordering the dual voice coil sub (.44) over the single voice coil sub (.14)?

    And will the amp I decided on getting power this ok? Since I am going to be running 2 subs, I am also guessing I will need to get 4-guage wire and a distro block.... am I right?

    Thanks for all the help guys!!! I am starting to understand some of this..... and now I can't wait to get all this stuff put in!!!

    yea you'll want a 4 ga wire(if not 2 or 1/0 ga) to run to your distro block then run the necessary sizes from there....i'm not sure on what power that amp puts out at what resistances....give me that and i can tell ya whether to get the dual or single 4 ohm

    The USX600D specs are:
    250W RMS per channel @ 4 Ohms @ 12.9v input
    375W RMS per channel @ 4 Ohms @ 12.9v input
    not stable @ 1 Ohm

    Do you think I will need more than 4-guage? I thought 4-guage was good upto 1200W.... my two amps combined would only be 535W RMS (the USX2080 is 80x2 RMS @ 4 Ohms).... or have I got this all wrong?

    4 guage wire is fine. How many subs will you be running 2 or 1. If 1 get the dvc (dual voice coil) 4 ohm one so you can wire it to your amp @ 2 ohms. If you are getting 2 subs get the svc(single voice coil) ones. Hope that helps. Good luck on the install.



    Alpine CDA-9813
    Infinity Kappa 60.5s Component Speakers
    U.S. Acoutics 2080x for the comps (80x2 @ 4 ohms)
    1 ed e12O.44 in a 2ft.^3 sealed box.
    Soundstream RUB500-1 for the sub (400x1 @ 2 ohms)
