    Next step up from my 2 12s...

    Im just very curious what would be the next step in my system, im running 2 DAD BD 12s(splaudio beefed) on 2x SK-1500.1s and im looking for a substantial upgrade next. The box is 4.9cuft @ 28hz..

    1 15? 2 more 12s, if so, what 12s? (keep in mind my space is at max, 5 cubes is pushing my space restrictions to its fine tuned limit

    Thinking 3500-4500W rms range. Single 3500.1, etc. Your suggestions

    2 better 12's and a larger amp. You may get a single 15 to burp louder on the meter but a single coil gets angry fast on 4K

    Re: Next step up from my 2 12s...

    Yeah im leaning towards 2 more 12s in the same box. So low ground pounders... Some 2k rms subs on a single 3500 perhaps. So my amp will most likely be an AQ3500.1 (4300W rms rated?). Now which sub to choose from? I really wish the SP4 had a 12"

    3 (maybe 4) beefy 10s would also be nice. (DC XL, etc)

    You could throw 6-7k on 3 XL 10s and get ridiculously loud
