    Need help please

    I have a 2012 chevy malibu. I do not know what to go with. 2 10" or 2 12" or 1 10" or 1 12" sub. I listen to mostly rock, dance, a little rap. I have will be putting in the morel elate for components not sure 3-way or 2-way and morel tempo in the back. I will be running a jl hd 600/4 for the highs. And a jl hd 750/1 or jl hd 1200/1 for the subs, i have both. Hopefully one of you pros can help me. it has been 20 yrs. since I played with this stuff. Things have really changed for the better! Thanks!!

    how much trunk are you willing to depart with? To get a good sounding and solid bottom end that will keep up with your mid/high power, I would strongly suggest two 12's ported on the HD 1200/1 (sweet amp, btw).

    ^^^This, but it will depend on how much space you have available for a box. Have you taken measurements yet?

    if you dont mind taking up half your trunk 2 12's, if not that one really nice 12 depends. only other option would be the 2 ba spg 13's they only need 1 cube sealed and get some passive radiators direct from them. this is what i did for my install i can pst pictures in a sec

    2 cube is this size of a box in my grand prix which is the general size you want for a single 12 ported. so 2 12's would take a box twice this size plus port area. i have the 2 boston acoustics i recomended and 2 spg-tr's tuned to 30hz. so i get a small box like mine plus the output of a ported box. i love me setup for a little under 660 bucks for 2 subs and 2 pr's and its amazing. it was the loudes cleanest setup i figured for a 2 cube box to save trunk room and weight

    Re: Need help please

    You can always do two seperate boxes as well,one on each side of the trunk too.Two heavy 10s, in approx 1.6 cu ft box ported @30-38 htz will sound fantastic,better up to 2.0 ea.I think like an FI SSD 10 would be great,to run in a pair

    Even 1.4 ported would be just fine
