    PowerBass 3XL-152D

    I bought this brand new on Friday, and it just arrived today. Has anybody personal experience with this 15" woofer? Im going to get started on a box for it tomorrow. I still havent taken it out of the packaging yet to preserve it until installation.

    (-NEW-) PowerBass 3XL-152D 15" Dual2 Ohm 2000 Watt Car Stereo subwoofer 3XL152D | eBay

    Thats the one i purchased, exactly.

    What are you going to power it with?

    Follow the owners manual to a T and you will love this sub. Break it in like they recommend, Build the box to the specs they recommend, as they recommend (bracing, etc). Power it with a clean, solid 1000 watts and it will get down on the lows and do very good work for you. If you want a strictly spl set-up, call powerbass cs and tell them what you have and what you want to do with it. CS can get you in contact with a couple of guys that use them in comps that will answer your questions and will recommend spl box dimensions.

    Re: PowerBass 3XL-152D

    My trunk cant fit a 4.5cu.ft box so i have to go with 3.5cubes @ 32hz, other than that i got it all set. Audiopipe APSM-1500 is the amp.

    Re: PowerBass 3XL-152D

    Box is 3.25 cubes @ 32hz



    This thing LOVES lows, but its highs are meh. Its still breaking in and ive already noticed a bit of improvement.

    I'd also like to mention my amp, the AudioPipe APSM-1500 is pushing this thing rated 1000W RMS very good. The audio shop that installed this wouldnt think that little amp would push the sub a lot. Wired down to 1ohms (1.3ohms box rise) its being pushed hard.

    It hits real hard on the lows. I would just like the 50-80hz a little louder.

    Wanted to see how you guys thought about my purchase. If i didnt buy it beforehand i would just keep shopping in circles.

    So far, even in a smaller box, this 3xl turns lots of heads and RIPS the lows. My backseat belts slam off the backseats and my entire interior roof moves. All this on a tiny audiopipe apsm-1500

    Your looking for the wrong thing out of your sub if you want it hitting 80hz....you need better MidBass.....



    Current system:
    03 Ford Explorer
    iraggi 300amp alt (on its way)
    Red top under hood and deka 9a31 in back ( on its way)
    stock mids and highs
    Pioneer Z110bt headunit
    1 18'' TC9/Audioque In 6cubes tuned to 32hz
    Audioque 3500D
    Handles the lows just fine

    lol...yes, it is very legit ..I cut mine off at 50-60hz, depending on the music I was listening to at the time.
