    I'd address the box issue before you throw money at more subs. Chances are, you won't see an increase just dropping more subs in the same box on same power.

    Are you referring to Obsidian Audio? If so, yes I made some 10's for Jonathan Price but they were custom 10's. We do not produce any 10's but I made four 10's for JP out of Obsidian motors, modified baskets, OA coils, etc. They worked out very well. However, isn't this thread asking about 12's?

    It is , but he dos't have the space for 2 12s ported so people are suggesting he go 2 10s ported.

    OP
    I would suggest 1 12 ported. you may loose some overall output but what you gain in low end frequency extension may be worth it.

    Pair of S2 10s --will knock hard in a ported setup
    Cadence Acoustics S2-Series S2W10-D2, 10" 1200 Watts 2 Ohm DVC Subwoofer

    Single s2 15 --works great in sealed boxes too..
    Cadence Acoustics S2-Series S2W15-D2, 15" 1600 Watts 2 Ohm DVC Subwoofer

    More output with the same power=New enclosure. No other way around it.

    We do have a set of 12s you can try with your current setup. Id imagine it being louder than the CVRs, but to get the most output, new enclosure.

    For a while, I thought I'd never have anything but 12s. But a 15 in the right enclosure gives me eargasms that the 12s could simply never deliver...
    Oh really cause a pair of 12's in the right enclosure would make you bail its a fact.

    Well, yeah, I realize that. I'm just talking about preference - I prefer the sound of 15s to 12s. I realize it's all enclosure and sometimes even amplifier dependant, but 15s generally tend to play lower.

    I knew I was going to get somebody like this .

    I said it's all in the enclosure - and most people who have systems who don't get very detailed into it don't have 12s that get that low. And it totally depends on the brand of subwoofer.

    What u mean someone like me??? I assume u mean someone that speaks the truth... In the correct box, car, power any sub on the planet can play as low as u want them to. Brand has nothing to do with it as 98% of the subs u see out right now are mostly copies of each other or of previous models.

    As far as most people that have 12's that want play low its due to them using prefab boxes, sealed, or have a high tuning for burp purposes.. Not trying to be a prick just telling the truth..
