    How loud Would it be?

    Hey there, well I have decided to go with 2 12" IDMAXs instead of just one, and run them with the modded MTX 1501D in the for sale forum. It will be running at 1 ohm pushing about 1000w to each sub. How loud should these things get if they are each in a 1.5cuft sealed box? I am going to keep it sealed for SQ, but still, I heard these things can push out a mean SPL. Any ideas on how many dbs these can push out?

    it's goin to be hard to tell how many db's your goin to get...... the only way to find out is to go and get metered, as far as sq you will have some good sq, i had 2 idmax's in a 1.75 and it was lovely, as far as spl, you will get some but nothing that will make your hair stand up, also i must advise that you must watch your gains on the amp, i let my cousin borrow my ride and he messed with my gains and he turned it all the way up and they got fried, just do what i told ya on the gains and you will be fine...... good luck to ya

    how something sounds is almost totally install/car dependant---way too many factors to consider. something can sound awesome in one car and take it out and reinstal in a different car and it could sound like complete ***.

    Re: How loud Would it be?

    Well this is going into my truck in my sig. Its a diesel, and a Cummins at that, so its a pretty solid truck because if it aint that Cummins will shake it apart. Even so, when I redo my interior I am stripping everything and lining with many layers of Tar Paper (also known as Peel n Seal) and then some soundstop foam. So it should be pretty tight in there as far as any sound. My goal is a SQ system, but still with some thump to show these guys running around with 6 JLs 10w0 getting 50w a peice thinking they have the best system in town. I will be turning my gains down as per your recommendation Saosin.
    I cant wait until these subs hit hard with the double kicks of Metallica, I heard its pretty amazing. Thanks for the help.

    Re: How loud Would it be?

    if ur worried about dbs and spl why not get it ported? I mean a good tuning will still give u good sq. Im sure they wont sound like *** or quote Supa C " old lady farts"
