If you can go with 2 12's ported that would probably be the loudest. 2 12's sealed and 1 15 ported would probably be close. If cost is an issue, then I'd take 1 15 in a second. Almost 1/2 the driver price and 1/2 the powering price. It should be really really really loud and sound amazing.

whee!!
dont' forget to account for the weight. each brahma weighs about 45lbs. sealed box will be another ~70 depending on how big you make it

I say go for 1 15" ported. You can now dispill the myth about 15's being slow and ported is only for SPL. //content.invisioncic.com/y282845/emoticons/biggrin.gif.d71a5d36fcbab170f2364c9f2e3946cb.gif

I guess I'll have to go with everyone else and say get the 15", give it 1000-1500 in that 4 cuft. ported box and it will be sick. Especially in a probe...

actually 1 15" ported brahma is going to be alot louder than 2 seald 12's. 2 ported 12's might be a bit louder than a single 15" ported but not by that much.

I would definitely say 1 15" plus they hit lower notes better anyway.

It was a system from 2 vehicles ago. The enclosure was rock solid. Had a P9 combo to deal with whatever equalization was going to be required.

Can't go wrong with either sub, but the Brahmas seem to have a little more "oomph" down low. Obviously both subs do fine down low, but the Brahmas have a tad more presence IMHO. Not that I fault...

I scrolled thru there trying to find TS specs and must have missed them or they weren't displaying. Anyway, looks like 2cuft tuned to ~35hz was a pretty good guess given those specs.
