    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

    if you like your t2 just putting in another t2 will be the budget choice, i prefer the xfl over the t2 though

    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.
