    decisions, decisions

    i like my dd3515d so much that i think i may have to get another one. how will 2 of these subs do in a sealed enclosure? also if i dont do that, im thinking of selling my 15" and getting 2 10" and porting them, and upgrading the amp so they both get 1000w. would i notice a difference between a 15" with same volume ported to same frequency with 1000w and 2 10" ported with same volume to same frequency with 2000w?



    Best receiver ever?
    I think so

    but dd reccomends all of their subs ported and they go on and give this long *** explanation as to why they should be. and i cant fit 2 15" ported in my civic. maybe 2 sealed though. will the difference be noticible if i try that?

    2 15" will go way way lower. i had my brahma in a super small sealed, it sounded o.k with only 500w

    the 15's will probably go lower, but 2 10"s properly powered and ported has the ability to get louder and still pretty darn low.

    i sincerely doubt that is near enough breathing room for 2 15's ported. specially d&d's. your 1 15"dd ported compared to 2 10"s sealed w 2x watts will prolly be around the same output (guesstimate-dont have programs at work here), but of course you'll have a generally flater response curve.

    hey, how much for the 3515?? of course if you're gonna sell.... and what coils?

    yea, we become so attached to our equipment....

    Hey, you absolutly could do 2 15"s in a 3.0ft ported but it will not necessarily be a good setup.
