    Free-air sub setup- Is this legit?

    They are probably an older version of these. http://www.jlaudio.com/m12ib6-cg-tb-marine-audio-m-series-subwoofer-drivers-91839
  2. A member in one of the groups i'm apart of has this install. It has never made any sense to me. Anyone care to dissect it for me? It's a pair of free-air JL 12's firing directly into the back seat. Isn't the point to separate the front and rear waves? I don't think firing the front wave into a brick wall is part of the plan. Please correct me if i'm wrong.

    Older mtx 8500 question

    It really comes down to what type of box you plan on using. Regardless, It's always better to have more power on tap than not enough. I'd feel very confident with that combo.

    Older mtx 8500 question

    That's a pretty good match. I had 3 8000's (500rms/ea) on a modded 1501d back in the day and they handled the power. Just set it up right and you should be just fine.

    JBL or Infinity subs

    Flip a coin. Infinitys look better to me (Visually) and have the same power handling despite having a smaller coil. Both have very similar basic specs between the two. I've always associated the Kappas with being great sounding woofers, though that was 10+ years ago. Unfortunately I can't add anything that you don't already know.
  6. As others have said, if he isn't asking over pp bb and the vehicle is priced similar to others in your area I'd consider the stereo a good selling point. Though it's not worth paying much over. If I saw two exact cars for sale and one had a half decent stereo I'd choose the one with the stereo. 1) Because it was professionally done (Quality varies, but still). 2)You can rip it out, sell it and buy different stuff if needed (Value)

    Certain subwoofers

    Some people enjoy making installs more complicated than they have to be, trying to squeeze every last db out of their substage. I guess that's part of the hobby. Me? K.i.s.s. I ran the same setup for nearly a decade and was perfectly content. Sealed box, pair of 12's on ample power =

    Weird thing just happened on my way home

    I'm pretty sure he meant to say 2 sets, 4 total.

    Weird thing just happened on my way home

    1- What type of amps? 2- 100 outside means.... “When temperatures outside range from 80 degrees to 100 degrees, the temperature inside a car parked in direct sunlight can quickly climb to between 130 to 172.” You then cranked the stereo for the drive home which generated even more heat sending it into thermal protection. That's a lot for any amp to handle imho.

    That seems like every other ad, I just have to bite my tongue. Some people don't know what their stuff is worth. Yup, that's it. Bout f'n time.

    Grandpas Pride and Joy Pioneer

    I just bought (And returned) a pair of these. I researched pretty long and these are one of the best subs for $80/pc. I had the power but they were in a less than desirable sealed box. So, I'll take the hit for them. Came to the conclusion that I need to tone down my substage and have a more well rounded setup. They have good weight, sturdy construction and got loud with what they had to work with. Do it.

    Yup. If it wasn't a couple hours away I'd consider it for what he was asking. If anyone is local to Holland Mi check out the fb mp. Edit- Power series. Thanks Ridinhi
