About three months ago I bought an Infinity Kappa Perfect 12.1D (dual voice coil 12" sub) and a 1 cubic foot sealed box. But at the time I didn't have much cash layin' around so I just grabbed one of my older bro's very old Jensen amps from the garage and hooked it up to the sub. The amp says "300 watts!" on it, but I'm guessing it's much less than that.
Anyway, I like how the sub sounds. It gets real low (Many Men by 50 cent sounds great), so I'm pretty happy with it. But it's tough to tell how good the sub really is because I'm not giving it enough power. And winter in Wisconsin definitely isn't much fun.... I'm always worrying about blowing the sub, so I pretty much just play music on very low volumes. So, I'm planning a spring upgrade. I think I'm going to get another 12.1d, a new sealed box (obviously), and a jbl 600.1 amp.... I'm hoping it's going to sound much better than what I got now, but I'd feel much better about it if I could hear some opinions from you guys. How are Perfects with their recommended wattage? If anyone has dual 12.1s or 12.1ds, how many watts are you giving it and how does it sound? Loud? Clean? Neither?
Another big question I have is how much of a difference will I notice going from one sub to two, and probably quadrupling the power? I'm kinda expecting a good, big difference.... But I really don't wanna be disappointed.
Thanks a lot for any thoughts.
