    Please Give Advice on New System Layout for my 335i coupe

    I need some advice and would appreciate comments on how efficient you think my setup will be as I want a single 15 in the back of 335i bmw. The setup will either consist of a Hifonics brz2100.0 or most likely the 2400.1. And a single DD 9515 or Cadence Daytona (Unless someone knows something more efficent). Please let me know how efficient these sub woofers are as well as these amps also any other recomendations ???
    My question is which Amp Sub combo is really effiecent and over 1000w rms I am not looking to modify my alternator or anything like that. I dont think these amps would over power them as they push 1.1700 and 1.1400 rims when wired down to 2 ohms....any other recommendations for amp/sub combo ?

    btw whats the difference between these 2 subs from cadense in terms of quality sensitivity and frequency response ?

    Efficiency isn't everything, but the 9500 series is quite loud. That being said, there's no way I'd pay them for a new one.

    True, so a hifonics class d amp 1.2100 brutus and the 9515 should be really clean hitting low and loud ? Also what do you think of the cadency Daytona's i have with the links which one do you recommend

    It depends on the box, but yes, it has the potential to.

    The first one you linked to is the new one, second is the older one...without having any t/s parameters whatsoever it's hard to tell how they'll perform sicne I have never used them.

    there are a lot better amps out there. if you have the money look into sundown, or mmats, both will out perform that hifonics.

    if your looking for efficiency with an amp then mmats is about as good as it gets, the 4000.1 is 78% at .5 ohm ive got one at 2 ohms on my 15 with stock alt and a deka in the trunk and it sits at 13.8 volts with out a problem all of their amps are highly efficient their subs are pretty solid, but there are better. their stuff isnt cheep but nothing of quality is.

    with the power your looking at the 1400.2 would probably be a good choice, does a underrated 1400 watts at 2 ohms

    sub amp wiring -1250
    install/box - 300

    effeciency is very important to me as I dont want to modify the alternator or anything, the m mats look nice and efficient but are quite expensive...any other recommendations ?

    I just installed a Mb Quart onx 1500.1 amp in my girls 328xi... I have a mb quart dsc1500.1 in my car and both are efficient.. If you need more power mb quart makes a 2000watt amp... The prices are great and the amps are even better imo.

    For power wire, and RCA`s I would go with Amp Installation Kits, HDMI Cables and buy some extra power wire for the big 3

    id take the older cadence over the newer one musically, the new one may be a little louder. If you decide to go with the newer one id just get an audioque hdc3 same exact sub

    i have used both
    Audioque: Heavy Duty: HDC3
