    2 zv3 12's or 1 zv4 18?

    Either setup would be on an saz3500, the box for the zv4 would be 5.3 cubes. I like the low lows more than anything and I've never tried an 18. The only downside is I already have 1 zv3 12. Which would you chose?

    I'd do the pair of 12s. Not sure what size box those z's like but most 18s like at least 6 cubes.

    have you heard the new sound of the Zv4?

    They don't have the traditional sound of your typical subwoofer.

    I'd personally do the two Zv3 12s. Will get just as low as the v.4 and still give you that upper bass response

    No I haven't heard a zv4 but thanks for the heads up. Cause I wanna be somewhat musical but destroy lows.

    Two Zv3 12s it is then

    You already have one, and it'd be cheaper all around. Cheaper box, and cheaper sub

    If you have the space, do the 12s in a t-line tuned to 28-31Hz. You will murder the lows and have great upper end response.

    Check with CWill5 (Cheyenne Audio) on Zv3s if you need some. He had 2 (BNIB) for sale 2-weeks ago. Really low price.

    Any recommendations on who to get A tline design from? Unfortunately I don't think I have the space (48W x 21H x 15D)

    I can build a line for you but shipping would probably be prohibitive and I don't make cut sheets. You should have enough space there but it would take all of it.

    I'd really have enough space with the dimensions I gave? It looked like single 12 tlines were that big

    You can build a line with a reduction of up to 40% in line area, which would make a two 12 line just a bit larger than one for only one sub.
