So, the hardest hitting system I ever hear was a pair of Kicker Solobaric 12s, not sure what model with a kicker amp. Rattled my bones. When I look at Solobaric subs, they dont take much power. I was thinking they would be 1000w rms subs, but they are rated st 350-750w rms.

So can someone tell me, what do I need to rattle your bone base. I know a good box helps. But Im looking to do 4x8" subs in an F150. Whoat do I need for bone rattling bass? It can be using Solobarics, JLs, Sundown or whatever. And what amp would do it.

I know not all whats are the same and not all amp ratings are correct. I was thinking the Kicker 2400.1 amp, but what would you suggest?

It's all about the right speakers, in the right box, with the right amount of airspace. Calculate how much space you're willing to give up, then match the subs to that, then match the amplifier to the subs.
That's how I would go about it anyway

You have asked the same thing about 4 times now. Go back to your old threads where plenty of people offered options and suggestions for you already.

I hope everyone here rolls their eyes and stops taking you seriously when they see the word "mansplained". Please tell me more about the gender pay gap and how consent means rape if a woman regrets it later.

Well I asked a few things. But Om trying to find out why some speakers make way more bass then others with with less power. I've been planning my build and ready to buy the subs. But I want confirmation on the build. Of this was a car I would a nice big box with some good subs. But being that I have space constraints is it better to go 4x8" over 2x20".

What subs in a smaller truck box should I look at? I know this is not 100%, but what is my best option? And why was my guys solobaric subs pound harder then anything I've heard before. What would be similar in a truck with a much smaller box with 8s or 10s at most.

“Space makes bass”
Those SB 12s were probably in a big ported box. You cannot duplicate that in an under seat truck box. I had a fox acoustics box with 2 10” W3s in my 08 f150 and it sounded great inside the cab. I wasn’t shaking the neighborhood, but I was definitely satisfied.

You need to make a custom box using every inch of available space bro. A small sealed wedge behind the seat ain't gonna cut it.
