    Need some advice

    Ok, so ive been rocking my single Kicker L7 15" on a Rockford t1500dbcp amp for awhile now. Im really not too impressed. Its gets loud and takes a beating, but it just doesnt feel like this sub hits as hard as id like, and it doesnt really feel like it gets low. I have a run of 0awg from hood to trunk to a 2nd battery, through a 2farad cap than to the amp. I had a custom enclosure designed here thats like 4.25cubes @ 33hz with a 6" aero on it. Any ideas on what different 12 or a pair of 10's i could go with that would hit harder and get lower? I couldnt do as big of a box as id like with my car because i need a little of the trunk space so thats why its only 4.25 with the 15".

    Re: Need some advice

    You wanna upgrade the amp or trying to get louder with the same power? And 4.25cf your max space you can give up?

    Also what can you spend?

    2 12s will work with that size box easily. And more power 2 12s will give you more cone area. What's your budget like for new box amp subs

    Re: Need some advice

    Well i had answered this already, but seems my post was removed or something.

    If im able to re-use the amplifier that would be awesome as it cost a good chunk of $$, but if not no biggie. I can always try to resell it. If i only need to add new sub(s) i think about $500'ish for subs. If i need a new amp and sub's than maybe about $800, but those are just estimates and also do not factor in recooping some of the money from reselling my 15 and the amp.

    I used to have two re audio se-x12's in a 4cuft box and it sounded great. They are about $150 on sonix electronix shipped.

    Here is the link.
    RE Audio SEX12D2 (SEX12-D2) 12" Dual 2 ohm SE-X Car Subwoofer

    Max ported airspace is 2.0 cuft, and they are 600rms each. so this setup would be just about perfect.

    Re: Need some advice

    Would those subs at 600rms be louder and harder hitting than my 1500 watts on a 15?
