    What Would sound better (1 re xxx 12, 3 se 8"s, or 2 re xxx 10's)

    Ok, i'm sold on the quality of RE subs now here is the real question what would be better....

    (1) 12" XXX
    (3) or (4) 8" RE's
    (2) 10" XXX

    it's going to be in a sealed box, i'm capable of supplying 2000 watts if need be.

    i would go with a pair of 10 xxx's...

    a single xxx12 in a sealed box will have amazing SQ, but it wont get very loud, even with over 1000w rms.

    I should have my 2 10" SEs in 7 days. I'll let you know!

    With that amount of power I would go with the XXX.

    Why seal it, go ported. Sealing a XXX with 2000 watts is a waste of money.

    "What would be better?" is a relative term. What are you looking for? Sound quality? spl? Blended bass? Chest massage bass? what kind of music do you listen to most?

    These will help us narrow it for ya.
