how much louder is 1 15" compared to 1 12"
well my current setup is 2 12" infinity perfects with a jbl 1200.1
I'm looking to upgrade to something louder (that still has nice sq like my above setup)
I was thinking dual brahmas or idmax subs
but I was just wondering how loud would just 1 15" be, or even an 18"
because they take the same power as the 10 and 12", and get louder with the same amount of power
the cone area on a 18 is 254
the cone area on a 15 is 176
the cone area on a 12 is 113
so say that I just got 1 18 " brahama and like a 1500 rms amp to power it, could that get about as loud, or louder (I would think) than 2 12" subs
some subs I would be considering is
braham, 15 or 18,
I know some of those aren't out, but I can wait
both 12's and 15's or even 18's will all be about the same level of loudness. But the bigger the sub, the deeper the bass. Very rarely will you find a 15 that will be over 3 db louder than a 12
I wasn't saying over, I was saying about, and 3 db is a lot
In genral rule of thumb 1-15=2-12's and so on.....This is based on cone area.
- "Bass" being low frequency it needs to move alot of air.
Bigger cone more air.
-A few things to note would be Actual Cone size and Stroke or Xmax. These two things can tell you how much air it can displace (or move).
-Bigger Woofer's require more air (Bigger Box)
-Most 15's like 1.5-3cuft and many 18's like 6 or more.
-What ever you do Good Luck
