    Why not build a box according to what the woofers you choose call for ? And you could always bump up too 18"s as well
    Level 5's on a m4a which does 7k not a m4 that does 5k ... Would be a great option ...
    Hdd's from tantric are nice as well ..

    Either way is great but with 10 cubes. I'd go 15s not enough air space for a set of most 18s

    Yes but unless a box is already made if he's wanting dc I was simply saying make a box to fit the chosen woofers ..
    Why say I want a 10 cube box and fit woofers accordingly doesn't make sense

    Hey, first to Timmy i mentioned above that i have 16v batteries and a 390 amp alternator feeding them at 16v. So a M4 would be signifigantly more than 5000 watts, i've been told it'd be close to 7,000 watts at 16 volts. So i was thinking no real need to spend $1,000.00 to upgrade to a M4a as the difference in power wouldn't constitute the difference in money.

    Mylows> I don't have a 10 cuft box, i was simply saying that is roughly the size of a box i plan on building, but obviously it will be custom built for the woofers that i end up with. I'm installed on my own for 15 years, 7 of those in a high end, custom shop. I'm no newb lol

    Didn't think you were. As your running a 16 volt system. And I did say to Timmy that you were working with 10 cubes of space

    It's a truck with a camper on it so i could go pretty much as big as i need to, was just thinking of keeping it around 10 cubes so i'm not using the majority of the space.

    No I understand completely I'd stick with 15s then. If you want 18s you'll need a min of 6 cubes each sube. To do them justice

    Are all of these upgrades, like affect the performance positively?.. or is it just preference with the carbon fiber and direct leads?

    Im trying to become more familiar of the materials and how they affect the subwoofer, so anything you can tell me on the stealth coil and ar surround would be appreciated.

    Re: dc level 5 parameters

    Cf cap us really just for looks the sub is supposed to take more power with the cf cone The stealth coils and at surround also enable the sub to handle more power especially for daily apps At surround is a larger and stiffer surround
