    What subs will get loudest?

    I have a truck box that has about 1.25^3ft for each sub and has a depth of about 5.25" it holds 2 12s what subs would be the loudest in SPL in this box?

    You should orer some funky pups, they are doing a mass buy. Hurry and you could get some of the loudest farkin subwoofers ever made!!!



































    Really though I dont think we can tell you. Youll need some shallow subs so most likely the duo you chose will not be anything winning SPL comps if that is what you are looking for.

    Re: What subs will get loudest?

    It is just a normal sealed box. I was just wondering if you wanted SPL what subs would you put in it? I was thinking about 2 Adire Shivas but i dont know how they would sound with only 1.25^3 ft.

    how about a pair of kicker 12'' comp vr
    the minimum air space required is 1.0 cubic feet per sub
    what kind of amp will you be using and can it be
    bridge to a 2 ohm or 4 ohm load.

    the kicker 12 '' comp vr have dual 4ohm or dual 2ohm voice coils

    if you amp can only be bridge to a 4ohm load

    then get a pair of the kicker 12'' comp vr with the dual 4ohm voice coils
    follow the wiring instruction that comes with the subs
    kicker clearly explans how to wire both subs for a 4 ohm load

    or

    if you amp can be bridge to a 2 ohm load

    then get a pair of the kicker comp vr with the dual 2 ohm voice coils
    follow the wiring instruction that come with the subs
    kicker clearly explans how to wire both subs for a 2 ohm load

    my brother inlaw has these subs in a truck box similar to yours
    powerd by a kicker zr 600 amp wired at a 4 ohm
    they play loud

    Yes 1.25 each. I have a BOSS 850 watt mono block amp i dont know about the ohms. I dont know if this is a good amp, i can always buy another if i need to.

    Actually in it right now i have 2 12" Audiobahn 1251SE and i want to upgrade to something that will play louder than those!

    2 shivas 2 re 12's the kickers.....im no bahn expert (by choice) but if those are the littler ones they go into mechanical distortion well before they make it to their rated power.

    hey bigblue gmc

    ever seen the price for an image dynamic Id 12v3 over at cardomain
    only like $449.00 dollars each and they give you free shipping
    man that's $900.00 dollars for a pair of subs
    then you will have to build a new box cuz the truck box you have now
    will be to shallow for those subs they need 7 plus inches of mounting depth
    not to mention a minimum of 1.50 cubic feet of air space per sub
    and a amplifer that can put out a thousand watts rms per sub
    there are alot of mono amp that can do this cost being a factor
    just to name a few: zapco c2k 9.0, kicker sw1250.1, jl audio 1000.1, hifonics bd 1500.1, jbl 1200, crossfire 1000 and more
    just look in this forum under 1000 watt amps you will find them all listed

    now let's use the system you have
    the boss amp that you have if it's model boss riot r850
    max power into 1 ohm is 850 watts
    so you will need pair of 12'' subs with dual 4 ohm voice coils
    pair wired for a 1 ohm load
    850 watts divided by two subs = 425 watts per sub (more or lest)
    depending on amp power supply (built)

    is this your truck box spec:
    ( height 15'' )x (width 17'') x (depth at top 7'') (depth at bottom 12'')
    if not please please post spec


    hey termlab if you are reading this how about some spec as to building a ported truck box one cubic feet plus port for a eight inch kicker L7
    meaning : height
    width
    depth at top
    depth at bottom
    square port or round port
    port height, port width, port length, and (tuned to what feq /hz)
    and how you came up with figures and will it fit into big blue gmc
    because he only wants a pair of twelves to put into the box he has now

    Hey Thecybe
    Sure was (exhale) lol.
    Ever tried mounting a 12'' spl/sq sub (cost $499.00 each)
    which req a minimum of 1.50 cuft per sub and a mounting depth of 7''
    in a truck box with a depth of 5'' with an internal air space of 1.25 cuft,
    then powering it with 1000 watts?
