    Attn Bass head: opinions on what sub

    My magnum 12s and Tsunami 1800 isnt cutting it for me anymore. Maybe im going deaf, but i find myself trying to turn it up louder and louder. So i figured its about time to change my set up. I love my magnums, and really dont want to part with them. And if i did part with them, i would want something of a similar quality. I just dont know what that something is. Im up to any ideas. (reasonable)

    The car is my 96 Honda Accord. So i dont have the biggest trunk in the world. And im planning on keeping my Tsunami 1800T unless i come across a memphis mojo. So i will have roughly 1800-2000W to run

    For a new look, i thought about going with alot of 8's. I dont know exactly how many, i guess how many i could properly power. But i figured my bass wouldnt be as loud.

    So my next thought was some 10's. If i could make the room, maybe 6 or so. (Thats for a new look also)

    But since i loved my Magnums soo much, i thought about selling my 12s and getting 2 of the 15s. My 12s are in a 2cu box tuned to 29hz getting about 900w each. That box practically takes up my whole trunk, so two 15s with the proper amount of airspace would definately be a big squeeze. and vented, i cant even think about.

    Basically i just want some ideas of different setups that you guys feel will sound similar to my d2s but with more loud ground shaking bass. Or do you guys think i need to tune my box higher and stop being lazy and go ahead and get my 180amp alternator put on. And that would take care of my problem

    or maybe an xxx( duh I mean if you were gonna spring for two 15s that would be about the same price, 1800 watts would make it happy, you could also get it going with 4 cu ft ported I would think

    I would imagine that it would, I am not that proficient with equations and such so I'll let someone what a bit more knowledgeable take that one... hahaha

    Doubtfull but it might. sx might not like that much power for daily. For comps, go right ahead. If your going with the memphis rout why not some memphis mojo subs? those subs get loud.

    Nice options guys. An SX 18 or XXX 18. I guess my only concern is performance. I really really dont want to down grade myself. In that case, i would keep my 2 D2s

    I doubt it would, the xxx and sx are very capable drivers, put it in the right enclosure, the right amount of power and I am sure it would match it, those things (xxx) have great motor structures and I have heard they can keep up quite well.

    think of the WOW factor too, turn lots of heads there

    Oh see, if it wont give me more output, then i need to look into something different. I have always liked memphis amps, and if i came across a mojo for a decent price, then i would sell my amp and get that. Im also trying to keep the price reasonable. So i guess it depends on what the Mojo subs are going for

    Re: Attn Bass head: opinions on what sub

    Thanks for the link. I already viewed that thread. Im doing my best to spend as least money as possible. Thats why i really wanted to keep the amp i have. Unless i sell my tsunami for a pretty good penny and only have to put a few more dollars with it or so to get a mojo, but thats doubtful. thats why im really not worried about it
