    I need more bump, recommendations

    Ok, so first off,I am new. Here's what I got.
    2 JL Audio W3 15s. (15w3d4) in sealed box. 1.91 cubic ft/chamber
    1 Power Acoustik Bamf 2000 Mono
    8 Gauge from battery to amp.

    This was my starter system, and it just isnt enough!
    I really wanted to go with one Orion HCCA 12.4.. I could get one for 300. But then I realized with the 4 ohm coils, how in the world could I get this thing 2000 watts??

    My second option would be an mtx 9500 but, a lot of people say these really do kind of ****

    My 3rd option was 2 RE SE 12s in a ported box. Anyone think this is good? Also? could you recommend an amp? I want more bump, and I'm on about a 600 dollar budget. Help!

    either 2 subs that handle 600 rms, or 1 sub that handles 1200. you dont have 2000 with that amp. possibly not even 1200.

    Re: I need more bump, recommendations

    I could get a new amp too. I can sell this amp to a friend for 100. Really I just want more bang at around 1200 watts rms, possibly more if it is a good deal. I'm just not sure what to do. BTW I drive a small ford contour. So would like 2 12s instead of 2 15s.

    Re: I need more bump, recommendations

    i just did a diamond audio d6 10 that i got off ebay for 140. im fairly impressed so far. the 12's tempted me, but i stuck with the 10. 2 12 inch d6's in around 3.5 cubes ported would get down i'll bet. the 10 gets lower than i expected.

    Does anyone know how to power the Orion HCCA 12.4?

    a hifonics 2610 would power it. you'll need to upgrade a stock vehicle charging system to effectively run 2000 watts rms.

    2000-2500 rms would get one moving. So something like an AQ2200d, a battery or two, and a decent alternator. Gets pricey fast

    Re: I need more bump, recommendations

    I have looked at diamond 12s before but I saw a lot of cheap ones, so I thought maybe they weren't as good as I've heard. As for upgrading my electrical? Would I just need to buy a 200A alternator? I'm guessing there is much more to it. What do you guys thing of 2 RE SE's ported? I basically want the best I can get with either 1 or 2 12s. My friend told with that with only 8 gauge going to my amp and 14 gauge speaker wire, I'm only doing about 350 rms to my JLs. I spent about 490 on that set up altogether.

    But it says 4 ohmx1 is only 740 watts RMS? Doesn't the Orion need like, 2000?

    Re: I need more bump, recommendations

    to run 2krms you'd want a nice alternator. 200amps should be fine. Then also a big Low ESR battery. Such as a large Kinetic or something similar. also 2 runs of 0 gauge.

    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.

    Yeah the Orion wants 2000. You don't have 2000 right now. And the 8 gauge isn't helping lol.
