    DC lvl 5 or xl?

    Hi so i'm planning on getting one of these DC audio 12's on preferrably a dc 2k amp. and I have a box design to the dimensions of 14x24x16. and with a 4" or 6" aeroport. this box gives me roughly 2 cubic feet at 34hz with as properly sized port length.

    Now my questions: which would be loudest on this kind if power the 5 or XL? and the prices? along with any electrical modifications? and would that be an appropriate box? any and all advice would be great!

    yea the xl would be your best bet. the lvl 5 would laugh at that power.

    Re: DC lvl 5 or xl?

    your box will be loud.dont see much of a ohm rise coming from it.optimum size is 1.5 tho,but this one should hit the lower notes pretty well.
