    Which sub to get 12 or 15?

    Hi there I have a Nissan X-Trail Light SUV...

    Well a friend of mine owns a sony shop and is giving me a sony amp and a woofer for free..

    The amp is a 150 X 2

    Which subwoofer will sound better and louder in a sealed box...the 12 inch or the 15 inch one?

    I know that sony *****, but for free they are worth it...

    THX in advance...

    the 12's will have better sq than the 15's but the 15's wil be louder cuz of more cone area which moves more air.

    I wouldn't say Sony *****. This places it in the same class as Pyramid, Legacy, etc. They are not great, however, they are not junk.




    Is this not a reasonable place to park?

    Re: Which sub to get 12 or 15?

    I disagree with the notion that 12's have better SQ than 15's. I have always gone with 15's as it makes more sense finacially over 2 12's and has surface area close to that of 2 12's. Anyone who has heard my car with my 15 Eclipse titanium has said it sounds amazing, accurate and full. Mind you I have 4 SQ 12's sitting in my house and the only one that may have better SQ is the DIYMA r12. I'd go with the 15 sealed as it will give you the output you'll want. Thats with space not being an objection of course

    No speaker, in the history of speakers, has ever been blown by too little power. Ever. I don't care what your friend told you, he's a dirty liar.

    So why were you searching 7 year old threads on Sony equipment?
