    Re sex10 not loud

    I used to have 2 10 w3v3 woofers ported that I sold know I have 1 re 10 *** in a small ported box and it just doesn't get loud even with more wattage. I don't know what to do should I buy another one and run two or go to a 15 ?

    In theory cutting your cone area in half you will loose 3 db, unless you double the power then you will gain the 3 db that you lost from the cone area

    I had a digital designs 10 that i was going to change to but it was a single 4 ohm and on my amp it just wasnt enough so I bought the re *** 10 that was dual 4 ohm so I could run it at 2 ohm but now i'm at a crossroads of what to do

    Re: Re sex10 not loud

    Going from 2-10's to a single 10 is gonna be quite the shocker. I would say get a proper built enclosure, get rid of that prefab, feed that S-E-X 10 about 750 clean watts and let it wang.

    You think that would be close to what I used to have 2 ten w3v3 on 500 watts rms or should I get this box Car Audio Dual 10" Slot Ported Stereo Subwoofer Labyrinth Bass Speaker Sub Box | eBay and another re *** 10

    Whatever you decide to do... Just build, or get someone else to build the box for you. Don't buy a prefab. I would start with chunking the prefab box you already have and put your single 10 in a custom built box. See how that sounds.



    Head Unit: Pioneer DEH-3600ui
    Mids and Highs: (2) SoundQubed QP-MR6.5's (4) SoundQubed QP-TH25 "Super Tweeters"
    4-channel Amp: Infinity Reference 475a
    Subwoofers: Three SoundQubed HDS200 15's walled off at 10^ft @ 32hz
    Monoblock Amp: Sundown Audio SAZ-2500d
    Wires: All 1/0 gauge KnuKonceptz
    Car: 2004 Honda Civic SI

    150's+ on music with $90 subs ftw!

    Stay away from the prefabs. That thing is tuned to probably 40hz and will sound like ****
