    Best smallest sub?

    Will be looking into putting a system in my 1985 Brat. Only one problem (other than the 45 amp alt ) the cab is VERY SMALL! My question to you guys is: What is the best sub I can get in the smallest box possible?

    Re: Best smallest sub?

    Reeaaalllyyy depends on what you mean by "small" and how much power you will be using. Give us the max dimensions for an enclosure (or calculate the volume yourself) and tell us what amp you will be using and we can help ya more.

So to start a thread simply to state that clipping does not hurt speakers is, again, a half-truth at best.

    Nothing is set in stone, but I was planning on using my Fosgate Punch 1000 or a California mono 400 . It really depends on what I use sub wise. I haven't taken time to calculate the ^3 yet.

    On a side note that full aluminum T-maxx was waaay to heavy. And I actually just built 2 T-maxxs from tubs of parts. one 3.3 and 2.5.

    Only too heavy if you didn't have a fat-azz engine. Haha Sell me one of them! I'll trade you a sub for it!
