    Help me decide...

    heyall,
    I recently put my system together after so long. I have an elemental designs e12O.44 powered by a PG 5.0:1 I like it, but I'd like a little more. I'm not going to buy anything anytime soon, but it's in the back of my mind. (I moved onto the performance side of things, so my 12O.44 will do for now)
    (probably buy during spring or summer)

    I'm thinking either:
    (2)Adire Brahma Mark II 12"
    (2)Magnum SI D 12"
    (2)RE XXX 12"

    (don't know what amp to have power them)

    Now, of course I would want them ported. I drive a 98 Integra and I don't know if a box would fit?(i doubt it would, but you guys know more then me) If it doesn't fit, I guess I should just stick to 1 sub.

    rest of my setup:
    Alpine 9807
    Front Speakers: Infinity Kappa 60.5cs, Component Speaker System
    Rear Speakers: Infinity Kappa 652.5i,2-Way Speaker


    Edit: or maybe, just one 15".. make more sense. Anyone tell me if one 15 would fit in my trunk..

    The new Magnums aren't out yet, I;m not sure on the release date. Also what are the specs on that amp? The integra will most likely not have enough airspace for 2 xxx's; is it a hatch?



    Best receiver ever?
    I think so

    Yeah, I didn't think it would have room for 2 xxx's. Indeed, it is a hatch.

    specs of amp now:
    Amplifier Type: Mono
    RMS Power: 200W x 1 @ 4 ohms
    THD at 4-Ohm RMS Power: n/a
    RMS Power: 400W x 1 @ 2 ohms
    Speaker Level Inputs: No
    Preamp Outputs: Yes
    Built-In Crossovers: LP
    Bass Boost: 0 - 15 dB
    Frequency Response: 20-350 Hz
    Signal to Noise Ratio: >90 dB
    Fuse Rating: n/a

    that's why I said i'd need a new amp, hehe.
    Do you think a single 15" would fit?

    Have you heard the Infinity Components yet? J/w becuase I was set on getting an Infinity system too and then I heard the Infinity components and didn't like them... they didn't provide enough mid bass for me. I'm sure you can listen to them at any Circut City or HH Greg if you have there.

    1 15" Brahma would be good. Look for an amp that puts out around 1000w at 1 ohm and build a nice and big ported box.
