    sub reccommendation

    Recently had system put in my kids car. Average stuff. 1000 watt fosgate amp, running 2 12 p3 subs. alpine deck, average fosgate speakers. I have a Kicker 1500zx running 2 12 L7's. To me, it sounds like these "average" p3's are louder, and hit way harder than L7's. It has got to where I may rip the subs out. LOL. So, I'm looking at T1's (fosgate). One car audio dude says 1 jlw7 would be louder than 3 L7's. Anyway, subs are subjective, but I want 2 12s that hit HARD. Also want decent price, durability, and something zx1500 will drive. Ok, so lets hear it. LOL

    There is more to a system then just the product. The enclosure, install, settings, and application all play a role in the overall performance.

    @TaylorFade and @pro-rabbit could probably take a 10" walmart sony explod and it would be louder than some guys here that go out and buy 500 dollar subs. its all in the install.



    Things to look forward to:
    (2) 10" or 12" imperium audio designs subs
    set of PHD MF 6.5" comps
    Completely seal off and deaden my doors
    aquire a 2k amp
    aquire a 2 channel amp for front stage

    My install has the wiring 0/1 gauge, high amp alt, yellow top, alpine cda105, so as far as I know, I did what I could do for set up

    What is funny about that is we did a walmart system for a friend back in 1998. Used 2 12" Pioneer IMPP 12s with a blue/grey jenson 300(all from walmart)...all wire was from walmart but we built the enclosure.

    It did a 139.9db at a db drag show the next day after we built it... lol, was not shabby for a 80's bronco.

    Heard of sundown yes. Not heard in a car. sub choices so many and often subjective (to a degree) what about fosgate t1's?
