    Can 10's get as loud as 12's and as deep as them?

    well, if you got nice 10's vs. ****** 12's then yeah....but if they're on the same playing field, or NEAR the same level, the 12's will give you deeper bass.

    my neigbors got 2 10's and his friend had 2 12's in his car and the 2 12's in my neighbors friends car were deeper in bass and a little louder than the 2 10's, not much difference.

    a single DD 9510 got like 150+ with a shitload of watts... this was tuned high, but if you build the box correctly a single 10 can out perform even high quality 12's in a crappy box.

    i had a single RE SE 10" and it beat all the dual 12" installs in SQ and matched SPL (sealed prefab) but it didnt get as low, because well. its a 10, and like jmac said, 10s generally wont play as low.

    so yes. it is possible.

    true, I was just posting product used and actual number scored...this is not a feasable number for a daily driven, full interior car.

    I actually bookmarked a thread on this a while ago because I thought it was pretty informative. If you get the time, check it out:
