I recently purchased 2 zvx-15s and it occurred to me that most SPL subs have a large, high excursion, surround that is 2-3" wide. Thus subtracting from the useable cone area. Many moons ago when it was Rockford Fosgate, alpine, JL, and so on.... the surrounds were 1/2" wide, 1" at the most when Eclipse introduced the aluminums. We all know there is a sound difference between 8s, 10s, 12s or 15s. I feel each size has its own unique sound as 2 10s still do not give the sound of a 15" Measuring the cone area on the zvx-15 I noticed it's only 10". Useable area of 12" at the most, including half the surround. Does this mean, if I wanted actual 15" I need to buy 18"? If I wanted 12" then buy the 15s?
Hey guys, I know posts like this are redundant 😫. I was into the audio scene back in the 2000s but not so much in the past 5 years. Here is what I need some assistance with: 2018 Ford F150 10" SSA GON - Sealed box 1.3cf (rear center console enclosure) Looking for a "budget" amp to run this sub. I have kind of narrowed it down to the following (Open to other suggestions under $160-180) Skar RP 800.1D NVX BDA 7501 Cadence Q10001D American Bass PH1600 Audiopipe AMPI1300 Soundqubed S1-850 Any input on if I should immediately remove any of these from the list? I have not yet ordered the sub so I can order the right coil config to match the amp at 1 or 2 ohms. I also seen there is a preorder on the new CT Sounds amps but who knows, they could be junk. Any help is appreciated! This is just a small setup, not looking to spend a ton of money or rattle my brand new truck apart like I used to. Any first hand experience with any of the amp series I listed is helpful.
Helloooooo Just to be clear i literally know nothing about car audio installations and i need help so i came here. I have a renault clio hatchback 2007 and i am wishing to install the skar audio spx-65c component system to the vehicle i dont want it to be runnning very loud, so i would like to stick to the stock amplifier if that is possible with the components i have brought (but only if it would work). Also how would i go about wiring up the external crossovers to the items that come stock in the car? and finally... what will i have to change / buy (besides from the mountings in the door) to make all the of this work? any help is greatly appreciated
I have had the opportunity to pick up 4 12" skar Ivx V2 dual 4 ohm for $200. I only need 2 of the 4, so I was planning on selling the ones I don't need. He did say that one of them had a cracked cone so I was planning on selling that one for cheap. Are these subs worth buying used? If so what should I look for before making a decision?
