    which subwoofer for me? Please take a look!!!!

    So right now i have a 12" Rockford Fosgate T2 Aluminum subwoofer in a 2.3 cubic feet box tuned to 34hz running off of a Hifonics Bxi2006d and set with a MM at 1200 RMS. I am looking into getting new subwoofer/subwoofers and wanted to get an idea of what to do.

    I have about 4.5-4.9 cubic feet to work with and i will be possibly upgrading to 3000rms-3500 in the future. But using 2000 rms for a little while until i get more money. I was thinking either 2 12's, 3 10's or maybe 1 15. I want the box to be tuned to 34hz also because i love the sound of the rockford fosgate just want it louder. I also want something that will get just as low as the 12" i have right now. I was thinking about getting another T2 and running it but was looking for other options. Thanks guys!

    I'd say just go with a ZCON, it fits your application nearly perfectly. Run it in a big box on 2k, and shrink the box a bit when you upgrade.

    The older one is better than the newer shit. Better softparts

    Re: which subwoofer for me? Please take a look!!!!

    I kinda want more then 1 sub because I feel like it will get louder then just having one. Will 3 10s have enough room in aa box that's 4.5-4.9? Will they get low like my 12 does?

    2 xfl's 12 from mylows10 will set you at 400 bucks and are insane subs and they love a 34hz tuning actually. that would be my choice. and he is an authorized dealer and will come with warranty

    mylows10 recommend 33hz for me.

    2 AB XFL 12"s will easily take 2k RMS a piece, hell might as well give them 2,500RMS and have a 5k set up.
