    1 or 2 Fi Q 12"

    I have a 2006 cts and been pondering which subs to put in it and have decided to go with Fi q's in a sealed box. But now the problem is that i have never had less then 2 subs in a car... had 2 alpine r12's and 2 JL 12w6v2's.

    With this build im goin for more sound quality then spl, and was wondering if 2 Q's is overkills. I guess with all my builds before i always thought hey 2 has to be better then one. Just trying to get some ideas here.

    And with 2 q's your talking a huge amp setup that i prolly dont want to get into, because from the looks of it they want 1000watts rms each... and that prolly runs into a hell of alot of upgrades.

    Just wondering thoughts on having 1 as opposed to 2. And if you have any amp recommendations.

    nah, you will be fine, put you want at least 1000rms for each sub, anything more will require the bp option.

    i have 1 in my hatchback and its more than enough.

    I'd do Q's off a SAZ 1500D in a ported box tuned around 32Hz. Would have good SQL and still get loud when you're in the mood...

    can vouch for this, but if you get the 1500d, you will need the bp power option
