    Stick with SA8v2s (and get more) or do a full change up

    I have a single SA8v2 on a saz1000D@1ohm. Its sounds alright, good accurate bass, gets extremely low considering. Its at thermal maximum right now I have no question about that, the second you get into even a soft clip the coil starts to stink. I want louder more powerful bass but im not set on what direction to go. Trunk space isnt that big of a deal.. I can spend ~$1000.. one idea would be 3 8s on an old SAZ2000D, but I really dont know :\ Any ideas would be cool.. (I cant get the TC LMS Ultra 5400 out of my mind, I want it so badly, but figuring out an 18 in my trunk is going to be fun)

    Did you finally get your signal/head unit issues worked out?

    That does sound silly loud, and not that expensive..

    Yeah! I updated that thread with a video, turns out having an x-over on the deck and amp set at the same frequency cuts output no nothing.. So I opened the sub and mid amp x-overs up and tuned with the deck. mids at 65hz and sub at 80, sounds so much better. But sub stage just isn't loud enough for my tastes It doesn't help that its in the trunk, even with the seats down I know i'm missing out on a db or two

    LOL, I hear this all the time with a single 8" setup.

    However, you should have plenty of room to run a few more and increase power if you want.

    Do you think I would be better off with multiple 8s? or that LMS 5400 (considering the down sides of that 18 are massive space and its $1K)


    But dont get me wrong for a single 8" its extremely impressive..

    It really is hard to be too satisfied with a single 8 daily in a trunk. I haven't seen an 8 yet that I would be satisfied with for any extended period of time. Your budget allows for TONS of options. A single 15 or a pair of nasty 12's would easily get WAY louder.

    Yeah $1k is a good chunk of money; is that only subs, or sub and amp? Personally I would go with larger subs, but that's just me. How much space do you have to work with?

    Still considering a pair of Zv3 12s firing into the cabin on a 3500D

    No no man i'm not complaining at all, i'm just saying more power isn't an option. I ran 2 SA12s on a SAZ-1500D in my last build, got loud but I want to get louder.

    This is going to be a build I get parts for over time so budget isn't set in stone. I always go used on my parts...

    What would you do, 4 SA8s on 3K or 2 z12s on 3.5K

    In my head it sounds awesome...... So used v3-12 ~$380, need 2 XS Power batteries ($500), and a SAZ-3500D used ~$700

    So... $2K..

    You set on that SAZ? You can find used DC's, AQ's, or Crescendo's for $600 or under. Actually, Crescendo BC3500's are $679 brand new. And what size alternator you have? If you've got a decent sized battery now, it's probably smarter to spend that $500 you had allocated for batteries on an alternator.
