    I want to be louder

    Right now, I have a 10" SSA Icon in a 1.5 ft^3 box @ 33 Hz on a MB Quart ONX1500.1D. It's nice, but like the title says, I want to be louder. Some stipulations are I have a regular cab truck and I want to keep everything behind the seats. This gives me a usable area of 8"x56"x13".

    Now, I was thinking of doing 2 SA-8's, but would it be worth it? So after considering that, I thought of fitting 2 SA-10's. I could put them in about 2 ft^3 @ 35 (I want to tune a bit higher than 33). This would be using 2 3" aeroports, which isn't optimal, but I just don't have a lot of room.

    So, would upgrading simply my subwoofer be worth it? Thank you for any feedback.

    Do a blowthrough if you want BIG bass. Have you considered a center console enclosure? Not sure if it'd work with your seating.

    A blowthrough has been a dream of mine, but I don't think its going to happen. If I did that, I would also want to upgrade alternator, battery, amplifier, subs. It's just too much.

    And yes, I have considered taking my middle seat out. I think I could get a lot louder that way, but I would still like to avoid it. Well, now you have me thinking of it again... thanks haha

    I would do a center console enclosure if I was you but if you don't know how to glass and do all the other BS it would be hard to find a legit shop to do it

    your going from a single 10" 1250 rms subwoofer to two 500 rms subs. Sure its a little bit more cone area but i dont see you gaining too much volume from that. A single 12 on 1k rms would be louder than 2 8s
