    will new subs get louder?

    Hi guys, i'm about to order a pair of aq sdc2.5 12's for a 3.5cu box that i have tuned @ 37hz. I currently have 2 hifonics hfi's in there (from my first setup). the hfi's are running off a brutus brz1700, but will the sdc2.5's be able to get louder without upgrading amp or new box?

    little on the small side for SDC's. I like the 12's in 4.25 - 4.5. You could try it in that box as tuning is fine, but I'm sure port area is on the small side also.

    Are you able to build a box? If so hit me up and I'll give you a design for them if you decide to go that route...

    Re: will new subs get louder?

    Thanks for the input, but may i ask how it would be louder? Cone area is still the same as well as power to the subs. Sorry im still relatively new, and i am just curious.

    box will change the output, the subs may sound a little better but a system is based off the install
