    2 12" IDQ's or 1 12" Alpin Type R?

    Just got new car and puttin in new system, should I keep my 2 12 4 ohm DVC Image Dynamics IDQ's or sell them and get one 12" Alpine Type R. Dont need a ton of bass since Im keeping my stock bose system for mids and highs. Also lookin up a good clean amp, under $250 to power the subs.

    If you don't need a ton of bass why not get rid of one of the IDQs and run the other? One IDQ12 should give you a nice thump and be able to do it in a smaller box.

    Nicer than IDQ's ? I don't think so, at least imho.

    I'd stick with the two IDQ's, by far.



    HU: Apline 9815
    Sub: Image Dynamics 12 v3 @ ~ 28 hz
    Sub Amp: eD NiNe.1
    Comps: Looking towards ID CTX65cs
    Comp Amp: Needed! Got 150w x2 @ 4 ohms to sell ?

    is this even a real question? lol.



    go with a single IDQ if you don't need a ton of bass.
