    Help me Choose ASAP...RE subs

    Hey everyone just wondering which you think would be a better setup for some good SQ/SQL in my Tahoe.

    - 4 RE re 8"s ported.

    or

    - 2 RE re 12"s sealed

    Thanks...

    Re: Help me Choose ASAP...RE subs

    why wouldnt u do 4 10s? Should be slightly louder than 8s and still would have lots of punch to them . Thats what I would do. It all depends on preference too tho. Do u want really low and deep bass that vibrates ur ballz or do u want some mid/high bass to kick u in the chest? I personally prefer the kick in the chest

    That is box dependent. Nothing to do with subwoofer diameter.

    Then you'll want a low tuned ported box...drivers don't really matter too much between the two because they're the same thing and the cone area is not THAT much different between the two sets you're contemplating.

    yea i forgot to mention that too. The box is really what changes the sound. Then its up to the sub to kick out the bass the box is tuned to or whatever.
