    Dude, you're not going to want to do that.

    Because you're inverting them, it's going to be at least 5x louder.

    Kiss your eardrums and back windows goodbye.

    I'd say, at least 175db's ... if you set it up properly.

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?!
    Every expert in the field agrees it inverting will only get 3-4 times louder
    You'd be lucky to squeeze 175dbs out of it. 173 is much more realistic.

    Ah yes, it slipped my mind. 3-4 times louder it is.

    ~173 sounds much better. However, I think if he added a cap or two in there and ran 0/1 gauge wire he might gain a little bit.

    Taking the magnet out of the box will let it cool quicker. This means it can get louder. The coil in the sub cools down quicker than if it was in a box. The F of the speaker goes through the roof, and the Vas remains the same. The Fc will drop accordingly, but that's ok ... because you'll gain that back with the gain in Xmax. Therefore, it's a wise decision to invert.

    Dude, Steve, you forgot to mention that he'll need a FLUX CAP to generate the 1.2Giga Watts he'll need!

    also, you need to add AT LEAST 4, possibly 10 JL audio stickers on the outside of the vehicle...that'll squeeze you out about 1 to 1.5 dB's extra. peace
