    2 sundown x8 or one x12

    Whichever I get will be in a custom box running 1500 watts. Which one would you be more impressed with and why. I've never owned sundown subs before.

    2 8's are basically the same thing as 1 12''. Probably won't notice much difference. I'd imagine that they would probably do a lot better with more power though.

    Is that due to efficiency? Because it's not because of the size.

    Actually one 12 is bigger by a decent amount. So I should do 1 12 in the hatch of.my.02 camaro?

    Technically a 12 is more cone area but the difference is doubtful to be audible to your ears. So it's really splitting hairs.

    That's what I was thinking as well. I think people would be more impressed with me saying I have 2 8s after they hear it. Would 8s have more motor.force or anything?

    Ok, I have paid some attention on here, won't the two 8's have more coil? I have contemplated the same set-up, so curios as well.

    Corey knows what he's talking about, dude. He never said anything about cone area.

    I bet!

    OP, is there any way you could go with a 12 and throw more power at it? That's how you're going to get your optimum output in the situation.

    **** they will handle that much? I can upgrade later but this is just what I'm getting from my friend on a trade. I'm trading him a zapco 360.4 and 350.2 30th anniversary for his Phoenix gold ti1500.

    Re: 2 sundown x8 or one x12

    Even more than x8s? I figured they'd move a lot too. Will it be comparable? I really wanna use the 8s but if its gonna be a huge difference I'll do the 12

    its not gonna be so much of an audible difference. You wouldn't be WOWED by the difference so i would go with the 8's. Thats just me though. I'm waiting for feb to get here so i can grab me a pair as well
