    2x SA-12 or 4x E-12

    Title says it all... would cone area be king in this situation?

    Power on either setup would be ~2k.

    Also considering 2x Shok Industries 2x 12" FLO 1k's or 4x 12" Tritons.

    I've never heard the Shok stuff in person... if anybody has experience there... please chime in!

    46 views and nobody?

    I'm leaning toward the 4 lower power 12's, cone area and all...

    Anybody want to chime in on the Shok stuff?

    Double the cone area would be much louder if space isn't an issue

    4 E12s if you have enough space. Why not 4 SAs? Price? If so go with 4 OA 12" V2s. Then upgrade to more power for them.

    In this case it is, though. The difference in motor force/displacement/sensitivity isn't nearly as much as the difference in cone area.

    OAs are a good bit more expensive than the Es

    Also consider AT Stratos. Not trying to nuthug them, but their current price is a steal.

    Oh, I forgot about my Tantric nuthugging. You could do 4 LD/MD 12s. Not sure on the price for them, though.

    Budget is an issue, as is electrical at a certain point.

    What's your overall budget and what all are you upgrading? Don't forget the wiring and enclosure, too.

    Well, the E12s are probably your best bet around that price unless you find some used
