    Shit talker claims he has a 10000w system.

    End of the 1st round...
  2. As far as the RE calc goes I've never even checked.. Torres or the other I mentioned work great to rough-in something I've designed. Once sized and drawn I re-dimension the thing, subtract all displacements, re-dimension all port lengths and end-correct them if necessary before using Winisd for the final volume/tuning. That way it's as accurate as possible... like this... I just guess I go a little overboard when I design something.
  3. Someone on THIS forum recommended it?.. first ive heard of that advice. Imo Torres is the way to go, Once you've modeled it first. Ultimate audio app works well too. But the RE calc is off I hear. As far as that program goes... idk
  4. That RE calculator is suspect I've heard... I've got no experience with it but people talk down on it. I've never wasted my time trying to use it.

    Box Help For 2 SA12s

    Spending that much on subs and prefabbing them makes no sense. Maybe for a temporary solution... idk If it was me I'd build something configured for the specific vehicle tuned to your taste and designed not to limit output on your actual power. $400+ of subs deserve a great enclosure. Prefab would be my last/temporary option.
  6. That above is quite an assumption... especially in a mobile environment. Every enclosure I've ever designed has been a collection of compromises... some minor some large... some goal orientation, others install specific but never mixing driver sizes... well... ever since the mid-80's (high school). Calling a basswedge "perfect" ... lol Welcome to the forum, looks like you need some solid advice. You debated solid advice with "personal experience"?.. this forum IS entertaining... good luck

    Is this Enclosure Decent for What I Just Bought?

    Sux that you are stuck with the Rockville site OP... That said... I've made a basic 12" Comp sub sound good on as little as 200 watts. My best advice is DIY your own enclosure and try to make it configured for your vehicle and as efficient as possible (for your power level). That S/O enclosure won't get even @BOOMINGRANDPA 's approval... no-one else here in my experience will tell ya' what you probably want to hear either. Almost all prefabs are junk, best to DIY your own. Really be careful with your highs, try to set your levels correctly and dont clip em' to death trying to get louder... sub as well. If you realize your equipment has limitations, you might be happy and it might last awhile... In the long run you'll have some time to save a few bux for that day when you decide to upgrade.

  10. 5 Gal bucket ? Hey... it's even Pioneers JK Op... just having fun now.
  11. I'd just go with the Pioneer and some other (not Boss) amp... that'll open up his options. Lotsa 2 ohm stable 500 watt amps out there that are even legit I'm sure. And somewhere like CL always has things like used Alpines cheap (at least around here). Cheaping out too much will give poor results IMO and that Boss... well...
  12. If I HAD to choose between the two I'd personally go with the Pioneer 12. That said... could I offer one more piece of advice?.. just my .02

    Rear speakers not working, help!

    Sounds like an open circuit so yes... if you don't trust the reading use a 9v battery on the speaker leads and if it won't move they're toast. (coil or tinsel leads failed)
  14. The simplest solution is often the overlooked one... hispls probably nailed it above ^^^... out of phase.

    My first 10" subwoofer

    If your using the Skar recommendations of 1.75ft3 net @ 34hz it probably will be less punchy and more peaky/bottom heavy. I'd try anywhere from 1-1.4 @ 36 for more punchiness with some lower range still. Really you should model it up and see, my .02 is just an opinion.
