    Re: re audio

    i know i cant supply either woofers peak. however with 1500 rms and an amp doing 2000 it should be ok right? how much performance am i gonna lose by not being able to supply peak? i know most of you guys advise against caps but would one be appropriate in this situation?

    don't get a cap dude. it doesn't give you more power. get an SX or an MX from RE. Both will take it. XXX will need a little more, and the SX would be at it's limit. you could also do two SX's if you can afford it.

    Re: re audio

    i looked at doing 2 of the sx's. (1000rms/2000peak) the only problem is im trying to get away with one woofer. i could do a seat raise and a dual 12in box with1.0 cf sealed but im not thinkin thats the best way to go for what i want is it? i can easily fit 1 mx in a 2.4cf or whatever the exact space i build it to is. will 1 mx be louder than 2 sx's?

    Re: re audio

    if i understand correctly a cap holds power to release quickly in times of extreme power needs. then recharges again?

    Re: re audio

    well you will need a lot of room for two subs. a single MX would probably suit you well in your situation, since you're trying to save room. it would probably not be too much noticeably louder in either setup, because the lack of room for 2 subs.

    a cap will do that, but it doesn't make your amp push more power. it slowly drains your battery and then gives your amp all of that power for a brief moment, and then goes back to draining your battery.

    getting a second battery, HO alt., big 3, are all more efficient ways to go.

    Re: re audio

    you might be okay off stock battery then. but if it comes to it, get the battery, not capacitor.

    and one MX in a bigger box will be louder than two SX with no room and sealed. that's probably your best bet.

    Re: re audio

    why not get, cheaper, better woofers? i'm assuming you aren't on an unlimited budget with a hifonics amp. re is way overpriced since having been bought out.

    Re: re audio

    what would you suggest then? i paid 400 for the amp but it was convienent and i needed it at the time. my dad bought it and is a hifonics guy(had a killer system in our malibu boat). as far as better woofers go what are my options?

    way overpriced?? take another look.

    the RE prices have fallen big time. they are at the old RE prices before the management change.

    Re: re audio

    has come down a bit, but still overpriced IMO. 500 bucks for an mx? 650+ for a xxx? and that is an e-bay seller with less than the greatest feedback, is he even an authorized dealer? better than the 1500 or whatever outrageous price they were trying to get for the xxx before, for sure, but if you have no warranty, meh.

    for 1500w rms subs, you've got all sorts of options, incriminator audio dr, sundown nightshade, ssa icon, fi bl, dd 3500 series, soundsplinter rl-p, thats just off the top of my head, all cheaper than both of those re subs.
