    I want 2 12s that like a sealed box and will take 1500 watts each

    It's been a looooong time since I've delved into CA. Many years...

    Now that I finally have a vehicle to work with, I need to find my sub setup.

    I am going sealed. No matter what. This is going into a Tundra Crewmax.

    My "hopeful" requirements are:

    -two 12s" that will take 1500 watts RMS and likes sealed boxes
    -have no more than 6" mounting depth


    I understand that this is a pretty tall order, but even if I need to have someone build me custom subs I am optimistic that I can make this happen....probably going to need a neo motor if I had to guess.

    Any suggestions? Is PSI still the go-to guy for custom subs?

    I am almost ready to go with IDQ 12s. They only require 5 13/16" mounting depth and they too take 750W RMS. However, I would like to find something/build something that would take double that...if it is even possible...

    I will be running a PG Bass Cube as well.

    Do you have the amp already? If so, what is it? If not, are you looking at one soon?

    they arent optimized for sealed at all man. None of the SSA woofers are optimized for sealed, the EBP, QTS are all off. I've tested a few ssa woofers in sealed, They are much MUCH better in a ported. As in They should never be in a sealed ever! kind of results.

    IDmax should handle the power fine. Or some 13w7s but i doubt the mounting depth will work.

    I do not have the amp yet.

    To begin with I was planning on running a 1500 watt amp, and POSSIBLY just running two IDQ 12s sealed. But after thinking about this ALL THE TIME, I keep thinking that it just won't be loud enough and I will be wanting more. I don't want to get into building a hundred different setups in this truck. I don't have that kind of time anymore. So...I thought...maybe if I get two 12s that will take 1500 each, throw a 3K watt amp and the Bass Cube...may could get it into the mid 40s. Although I'm not competing, I know what mid 140s sounds like, and I would be content with that.

    Yeah, those subs would be way to deep unfortunately.

    I always wanted to try some Daytons. For the price and how much everyone raves about them, they are tempting too. However still 700W RMS...

    Have you played with these before? What about IDQs? Any comparisons?

    So you're looking for 12's that'll take 1500wrms EACH? I was thinking you meant both.

    I have not played with IDQ's personally. I have witnessed the dayton HO subs in 10's and they're solid.

    can you make like 3 inch round baffles or something to raise the mounding depth just a bit?

    Yes, 1500 each. Which is why I assume that custom built neo motors are the only way I can possibly go. Do people still sell the old school TC neo motors?

    No way.

    The key here is that the box is going to be going behind the rear seat of my Tundra crewmax. I would like to not have to move the seat up all the way, and thus far with IDQs, I only lose a couple of clicks forward.

    i'd say you'll have to settle with a 135 db lol.

    Or go with 4 8s under the seat ported which would be a lot louder and more appropriate on that power.
