    Sq subs

    I will start by saying I understand enclosure and install matter most. I have a dual 1" slug tc9 motor that I am going to have @ SPLaudio build for me. I am wanting most on the side of sq for this setup in a 01 jeep grand cherokee. I am having him build a 1500 rms sub, that I will be running ~ 1000rms.

    Here is my where I have questions. I enjoy spl but I do not need 150db anymore, but I want to build something that will keep me from wanting to add more right away. I was thinking of going with a 15 instead of a 12. Can I get really nice sq from a ported 15? I will have @ double 07, build me an enclosure. Exacly what I am not sure yet but it will be quality for sure. So what are your thoughts?

    Re: Sq subs

    I think he wants to know what to tell Corey to do with the tc9 .

    op, I have a 15". It's a tc9 varient behind tc sounds coils and spiders, with a Memphis cone, and it has pretty good sq.

    Re: Sq subs

    Can I get good sq from a ported 15, or should I stick with a 12.

    Re: Sq subs

    Size of the sub has little to do with the sound quality.

    I have never heard an sq sub so I am not sure what the difference is between the 2. But I know if I don't feel it enough I will be switching it up again, and soon. With a new kid and all I do not have the time or $ to do this so I would like to do a nice sql build.

    My thought was if I went with a 15 I would get more spl. And even in a sq enclosure and setup I could still be happy. I will be using 1000rms.

    Re: Sq subs

    Larger subs tend to lag and sound sloppy...

    JK Bro, for real it will sound decent soft spiders are always a bonus.
