    time for a change

    alright guys, I need some smart car audio heads that arent biased to come in and give me some quick knowledge and opinions.

    I currently run 2 w6v2 10"s off a 500/1... only 1 500/1 now...

    I want a change, i want more SPL but I still want the sq the w6's allowed

    this is going in the back of a firebird so I don't got much room to work with, the w6's are currently sealed.

    I want new woofers

    here are my options

    magnum 12
    13.5 w7
    xxx 12
    brahma 12

    amp would probably be a bx1500 brutus for all 4 set ups

    am I going to see a change in bass from these set ups??? I will most likly port if the room allows, or make it a vented box....

    any input would be appreciated...if there will be no change, than a quick reply with the words don't do it. would also help.

    Thanks...

    There will definately be a difference.
    As far as the selection, I'm sure you'll be good going with any of those choices.

    Re: time for a change

    I have never seen inside the back of a firebird. How much room back their. I do belive you would really see a big step up if you could fit a 15 xxx, brahma, or D2 back their. If money is no problem the 13 W7 ported would also be a great choice.

    If you cant fit that much back their I would stick with the ported 12 or 13 W7 option.

    also do you plan on getting a bigger or second amp.

    I belive the D2 runs well on the lower power amps, just from what I have read.

    Re: time for a change

    If money is not a big issue but space is check these out.
    http://www.edesignaudio.com/ep2/12a.htm ported only needs 1.5 cubes.

    the 15a needs 2.2cubes

    3.0 cubes is big but not huge. could fit 2 12As back their in a ported box and it would be loud as hell if u want to go that big.
