    wich one?? RE SEX12D2. Rockford P3D2-12 or Alpine SWR-12D2

    Hi, I have a RF P3D212, If there is something I would try different in my system is the subwoofer. I am very happy currently with it but sometimes I think it could pound a little harder, so I thought about buying the new model that has 600rms instead of 500rms, but in the same price range and RMS power there is the alpine's an the re audio's model. wich would you choose and why?

    ^^^This. And you're not going to see a difference in the later model p3 or the newer one. How much are you going to spend on a new p3? 150 bucks or so? A good choice if you want an increase in sound would be this: Street Duty SDC2.5-12-D4 Subwoofer Put it in a good ported box and you'll be happy, happy, happy. With the exception of the Alpine maybe, the others you listed are garbage.

    That's not going to cut it. Throw the p3 you have in around 1.75-2.00 cubes tuned around 32-36 and you'll see a big increase in output.
