    that wasnt a bad price for that setup really. and yeah, you arent getting much power with 8 guage. i like the diamonds alot better than the new SE's. if you could find a used se from a few years back that is in good shape, it might be a different story. you will go over $1000 easy tring to run 2000 rms. 0 guage, or preferably even larger power and ground, ho alty, second battery. not to mention sound deadener and possibly some amped front components when you find out that you have only bass.

    Probably looking at $600-800 to get the charging system perfected. Then 300-600 for an amp. Then obviously the subs themselves.

    I like my pm'd idea better ha.

    The best I found was an alpine mrp m2000 which says 1200 watts at 4 ohms. Is there something I don't understand here??

    if you want to stay on a budget, keep the amp you already have, buy 2 type r 12's dual 4, get a second battery with an upgrade to 0 guage power and ground, get an enclosure at about 2.2 cubes at 35hz. you'll be loud. type r's are just a decent cheap recommendation, not required.

    You mean 2.2cubes each yeah?

    Go with your amp, 0 gauge, my sub recommendation, and about 3.5cubic feet at 34hz. You'll be good to go.

    What about one 12? like an mtx 9500? I could get one in a sledgehammer box for 235. Would you still take two Type Rs over these? Plus, the new Rs are rated at 600 RMS. Do you mean the ones before those?

    Re: I need more bump, recommendations

    2 12's has twice the surface area. Would be on the same power (600+600=1200). Would be louder though take up a little more space.

    The previous type-r 12's were 500rms ea.

    @ 1 ohm you have 1200rms. Use it.

    Sound quality (level) woofer. sounds great. Not the loudest woofer. Can get very low though.

    Half the surface area of 2 12's.

    Just one 15 ported could get louder than the 2 15s sealed? Hmm. Box specs on a ported one? Or maybe you could find one that I should buy?

    Re: I need more bump, recommendations

    Also to the 2 15 Rs, I would like to not have 2 15s cause in my contour I don't think I have the room for them. To get 2.2 cubes each. its limited space. I'd have to have a box made or something maybe.
