    sorry for the unfinished reply but i was going to get the 15s u suggested and i was thinking about building the box and the size... 12's are a better idea?

    also, am i gonna need to worry about new batt or alt? if so, i could settle for 1 15 beefed up on a good amp, and would be well below my budget, where i want to be

    Wondering how to get deeper bass in my 01 suburban

    right when u sent ur reply with the american bass suggestion i was literally typing to ask you about them. for the sake of saving money, what do you feel about these and a lower wattage amp? im not looking to win any comps lol. the sealed box might save my eardrums a little longer,(probably not) although i live about a 30 second drive from home depot and have all the tools to make the box. i didnt know the forms for foundations were called that. also im not trying to be oppositional when i keep suggesting the sealed box, ect, just trying to save money and use what i have, i know the cheap route isnt best but it is what it is, like i said im not looking to break any db records lol. anyhow, here are the subs: https://store.soundsolutionsaudio.com/products/american-bass-dx-15-inch-250w-rms-svc-4-ohm-subwoofer.html https://store.soundsolutionsaudio.com/products/american-bass-xo-1544-15-inch-400w-rms-dvc-4-ohm-subwoofer.html

    I found some 15 inch subs im definitely interested in. I still have a sealed box that i have the 2 busted boss 15s in. Also, the 3rd row seating in my suburban has been removed, and when the 15s were in for the short period of time, it seemed like a perfect fit; an equal amount of space on both sides of the box, a nice distance to my trunk door, ect. https://store.soundsolutionsaudio.com/products/sound-qubed-hds215-15-inch-subwoofer.html 35 lbs https://store.soundsolutionsaudio.com/products/american-bass-xd-1544-15-inch-700w-rms-dvc-4-ohm-subwoofer.html 25 lbs they both seem like a great deal. the dimensions of my trunk: 72 inches long (6 ft), 47 inches wide. the top of the back seat is probably like 30-35 inches so height isnt a problem. so lets say anywhere from 16 1/2-20 inch high. the current box i have for 15s measures 36 in wide x 16 5/8 in tall by 16 3/4 in deep. now i need to find an amp, havent looked on either site in depth about amps yet, that is next up

    Ok, i will take care of the tweeters asap. the gain has been at half since i got everything back from car toys. i have tried messing with the gain levels from the head unit but it didnt seem to do anything. You arent a fan of JL! why is that? i always thought it was really good gear. On a quick side note, found a great deal on some 6.5 polyglass 165 cvx focal door speakers and i wanted to see if they would match up with my quinn acoustic q602 door speakers. I am going to replace the amp and try to see what boss will do about the blown subs, because i bought them from a friend, but they were still brand new. unfortunately i might just have to eat the cost of the boss gear but it was like 80 bucks total. the install from car toys really cut the pockets deep but if i return the w0's it will be a better deal, thank you for the heads up. The wiring is ran so it should be plug and play once i get the dimensions and budget figured out? i heard some DC audio that was one of the best systems i think ive ever heard, almost got some d1's i think they were, but made an impatient decision with the w'0's. i have 9 more days to return the w0's til the 30 day return policy is up. I will post the dimensions and a budget once i go measure them. thank you for your reply.

    Yeah, i figured as much, but for 80 bucks for the 2 15s the 5000 watt amp and the box it was a decent deal, or so i thought. i didnt think they would go on the 2nd day haha, at least half a year or something.
  11. Whats good Car Audio community? First off, I want to thank all of you people out there dedicated enough to help noobs like me, even if its just replying to a random thread on the internet. I haven't been on here in years but I remember when I had questions a decade ago, you guys were extremely helpful, so thank you all for that as well. Alright, so to get into it, i have one big question: is it possible to get deeper bass with my current setup? I recently had a terrible experience with boss audio equipment. I got a great deal on the equipment (2 15's, a box and a 5000 watt amp for under 100$) so I thought why not? Installed in my 01 suburban. (A little background: my first car, a 95 jeep Cherokee, had 2 8 inch jl 8w3d6's on a 600 watt pawn shop Sony xplode amp and a sony head unit, installed by car toys because my friend worked the tent sales and had a discount on install. I used to go around THUMPING.) Fast forward to a few weeks ago with my current setup: had car toys install a kenwood deck(KMM-BT325U) a PH5000D boss amp 5000 watt amp, 2 15 inch boss P156DVC 2500 watt phantom series subs which ended up freezing by the 2nd morning. Dont know what I did, because I was being careful for the most part, I did have them up loud but it wasnt for more than 1 full song. So I was devastated and rushed and got these 2 12 inch jl w0's enclose in a slot ported basswedge box installed, and they hit pretty nice, but I'm looking for a deeper thump than I'm currently getting. The sound clarity is PHENOMENAL, which I credit to my Quinn acoustics q602 door speakers, but when you have it cranked up to like 28/35 the subs hit really good but the music is almost too loud without the right amount of deeper bass and mid tones, if that makes any sense. The deep bass hits pretty well but I feel like they could be pushing WAY harder, based on past experience with my and other people's systems. The amp is about halfway turned up if that's of any help. I also have the aforementioned Quinn acoustics q602 6.5 inch door speakers installed up front and 2 stock ones in the rear door, plus the 2 stock tweeters up front and in the trunk. I have warranties on the deck and the jl subs. So here are a few baseline questions of which I hope to be expanded upon: do I turn the amp up? Do I get a different amp? Should I get some better tier jl subs? Is it worth the time to call boss audio and see if they will do anything about the seized 15s? I am still under the 30 day mark for the install on the 15s and the 12s and my buddy has some brand new 10w3s that he wants to sell me, so was thinking of returning the w0's and doing the 10 inch w3s instead. I also have 1 8inch w3 laying around. Still trying to be as cost effective as possible but not going to shy away from spending a few extra bucks, as I do not treat myself to much else. Thanks to anyone who takes the time to read this and I will respond to feedback as quickly as possible Andrew
