    Bandpass for Kenwood Tornado Subs?

    Will 2x 12" Kenwood Tornado 700 watt subs work well in a 2x 12" Bandpass box running off a Rockford Fosgate 500.2 amp ?

    Forget the Tornado subs too, aren't exactly one of kenwoods very reliable creations.

    I own two kenwood 12" tornados also and well....they may not be the best sub in the world but for the price they were fine for me....I have them both on a 300w amp and they sound fine....The RF amp you have will no dought work just make sure you set the gain properly so you don't send them too much....I'm sure that amp puts out more rms then the subs are rated for...As for the bandpass box...Thats what I have too...The SQ really falls when you put them in a bandpass but since the subs are not awsome to begin with at lest it will get you more bass out of your subs.....It up to you....If you want to keep you sound quality then put them in a sealed or maybe ported but if all you want these subs for is bass then it won't hurt to put them in a bandpass....JMO

    SQ= sound quality....SPL= sound pressure level...
    SQ is the quality of the music being produce by the speaker while spl is the loudness of the sound...
