Re: Sundown 12's or 15's in bandpass
Had a few explorers with a handful of different setups in them. They are easy to get loud so your off to a good start.
If you wanna go big with the 4 15s then by all means go for it. I did 4 15's port and subs firing up in a 97 explorer years back and that thing was very loud for what it was. Had plenty of people get out confused when my $600 for everything setup would smash on their stuff that cost 2-3 times as much. And I'm telling ya it definitely wasn't the lanzar Maxpd15's in there doing all the work. From my experience with them id say them lanzars are pretty much a knockoff kicker cvr, comparable specs and no audible difference in performance IMO and at the 80 bucks apiece I picked them up for new, it was ridiculous how loud they were in that explorer.
My point is for a daily setup 4 sa 15s would be overkill for most people. In that explorer 1 18" or 2 15's on 1.5-3k Watts would be a very respectable daily setup. A slot or Aero ported enclosure would also be much simpler especially if your building it yourself and save you a good grip of space as well. With a slot ported box for example with a couple 15's your not giving up your rear seats. You could fit them both in the cargo area under the window line and you still end up room to spare back there. Would be an ideal situation to throw a couple batteries back there maybe. Mehhh just some thoughts.
I guess a little more info would make it easier to get some advice to get ya what your after.
You building this yourself?
Do you plan to upgrade your electrical or do the best with stock electrical?
What kind of tuning/sound you going for? I'm guessing since your going for daily mid to lower 30's may be your goal. Do you ever plan to play down into the 20's? Do you like a big output increase at tuning or you like to play flat?
So you have anything in mind yet for the amp?
Are you set on the sa's? Once you get your mind set on number of drivers, space youll give, power and what you don't mind dropping on subs something else might fit your needs better.
BIG WALL O TEXT!!! Haha probably could have shortened it up but I post from a phone so revisions are mucho effort and I'm lazy were
BTW this isnt trying to discourage you from going big. If you really wanna do them 4 12's or 4 15's in the 4th order if, its done properly either will be very nasty. I think no matter what you end up going with you'll be very pleased coming from the infinity/Pyle setup you got now.
Edit - almost forgot. In my experiences with 1st and 2nd gen explorers, you should pick up a good bit of sound deader... your gonna need it lol
