I really wanted to recone to 18s and do a wall but I don't want to up the front stage anymore to keep up with a wall. It has to blend, I can gain a few dbs right now and the fronts will be fine.

    I'd go with level 5s on a 5 k that's my dream set up personally, you could beat the hell out of them all day long and never worry about anything but then again if you wanted to add power you always could

    Zcon's get my vote. Xcon's are great for anything under 2k but anything over that and you'll notice they heat up too fast. SSA subs are extremely efficient too.

    I can't get a 50 now. Tuned at 38 gets me a 149.5 in the kick. 47 at the dash

    I have plenty of battery reserve to hold my voltage, the sub just doesn't like that much power. Most 3" 4 layers don't like over 2k unless they are specifically designed for it (like the 9500's for example...)

    I got a 7.5 inch octo now. I don't have room for more port. I could tune higher, it's changeable just haven't made the 43hz port yet
