    Multiple subs vs single large sub

    Just wanted to know if I swapped my single FI BTL 15 for 6 10" subs or 4 12" subs would it still play deep like the BTL? The 10s or 12s would be sealed

    Re: Multiple subs vs single large sub

    2 12's faced forward sealed from trunk right? I wanted to do that in the first place but I had a BTL 15 from another car. I didn't want to sell it so I put it in my Impala with 3.5 cubes and now I want more

    Theres no need to run shallow mount subs in that car..just get 2 solid 12.s and build a good box for them..if thats not loud enough up the power to a 3500

    Not necessarily so far my impala has been loudest subs and port back ..didnt like the sound of sealed forward...another option is subs forward port side ...that will be my next box

    If you put them in a box thats tuned around the same.

    Dont expect your 12s to hit as low in a box tuned to 40 hz if your BTl is tuned to 30 hz



    Headunit - Pioneer DEH-P8300UB
    Subs - None
    Sub Amp - 2x Crescendo 3kwp
    Front Stage - Polk Audio db651 Coaxial
    Front Amp - None
