    How loud can 12s actually get?

    I know this will probably get flamed, but will a single 12 do mid 140s on 2000watts in a large trunk car daily, tuned around 32hz? I would be firing it forward into the cabin. I know that there are a lot of variables that come into play, but is this possible at all?

    I'm sure its been done but may be tricky and might require more watts

    Re: How loud can 12s actually get?

    I did a 142 with a 12" T3 T.S.S on a American Bass 150.1 without tuning it, Just dropped it in a 1996 Pontiac Grand am and that was it... I had it facing forward,.. The box was even tuned to high for the sub, so ya its possible,. I also had stock electrical at the time and a crappy headunit

    Re: How loud can 12s actually get?

    So its possible. Were any of these done with low tuned boxes? I want the ability to get low and still be loud. I don't really need to do mid 140s, just be loud on the lows.

    if u want to get low then keep the tuning around 30-35hz and run a re xxx or mx or something along those lines
