    Icon14 Need Your Help NOW!

    This person i know recently got 2 w7's 12"s in a huge custom box made and installed by sound advice in his expedition. He spent like $3,000+ and before he got it i kept telling him there were subs better or at the least just as good for a lot less money he wouldn't beleive and just kept saying " well then u get a better system for less" even his friends think that w7's cant be beat.

    His weakness is he doesnt have enough power running to them. So,, the question part is what would be the most effective way to get a 1 sub 15" or 12" that will beat his system or at least come really close or tie for alot less money. im looking to spend 300 or less on the amp and 300ish on the sub. Ive been thinking about
    a tsunami1100 with a 15"HC what do u guys reccomend?????

    I hate to tell you but there is no way in hell that you will beat that with one sub, unless his install is really crappy or he has 10 watts going to them.

    No. It can certainly be done.

    Anyways - give us more info on his setup, and what you want to "beat" him at.

    Name one sub that will outperform 2 W7's in a proper box with proper power

    Notice how I said that "unless he has 10 watts or a crappy box

    Re: Need Your Help NOW!

    i know it would be super hard to beat him but i wanna prove to him he didnt have to spend that much money. people wont believe there are subs as good or better than w7's and my goal is to show them there is by this i mean mostly by SPL.

    he doesnt have that much spl i listened to it and it was good sq but not spl for the money.

    You don't have to hear SPL from the ear... its the mic that counts.

    I'm sure there is a possibility of one sub sounding louder than the W7's but it would be difficult to find one that would beat it in raw SPL.

    The current world record (I believe it's still current) is held by one DD sub. It's all in the install.

    Re: Need Your Help NOW!

    You think a csx with 5kw would blow them away?



    I used to spend a lot of my free time here. It was fun I suppose. Still rocking the 9515 and Better Audio amp haha.

    How's incriminator stuff these days?

    I think he has too small of a budget to get the job done.

    We can't say that yet without knowing more information about the W7 setup....power, type of box, tuning frequency (if applicable), type of vehicle, etc. etc. etc.

    You're refering to Nate Munson and his single 9510 with two Viper's on there in his Civic. Came so close to 170. He's clever.




    Is this not a reasonable place to park?
