I want 2 12s that like a sealed box and will take 1500 watts each

Recommended Posts

It's been a looooong time since I've delved into CA. Many years...

 

Now that I finally have a vehicle to work with, I need to find my sub setup.

 

I am going sealed. No matter what. This is going into a Tundra Crewmax.

 

My "hopeful" requirements are:

 

-two 12s" that will take 1500 watts RMS and likes sealed boxes

-have no more than 6" mounting depth

 

I understand that this is a pretty tall order, but even if I need to have someone build me custom subs I am optimistic that I can make this happen....probably going to need a neo motor if I had to guess.

 

Any suggestions? Is PSI still the go-to guy for custom subs?

Id look at a pair of 12" G-Cons/SSA G-Cons for sealed enclosure if i were going sealed

GCON-12 Sound Solutions Audio 12" 750W GCON Series Subwoofer - SSA STORE

If you can squeeze another 1-1/4"

 

 

I am almost ready to go with IDQ 12s. They only require 5 13/16" mounting depth and they too take 750W RMS. However, I would like to find something/build something that would take double that...if it is even possible...

 

I will be running a PG Bass Cube as well.

they arent optimized for sealed at all man. None of the SSA woofers are optimized for sealed, the EBP, QTS are all off. I've tested a few ssa woofers in sealed, They are much MUCH better in a ported. As in They should never be in a sealed ever! kind of results.

IDmax should handle the power fine. Or some 13w7s but i doubt the mounting depth will work.

Do you have the amp already? If so, what is it? If not, are you looking at one soon?

 

I do not have the amp yet.

 

To begin with I was planning on running a 1500 watt amp, and POSSIBLY just running two IDQ 12s sealed. But after thinking about this ALL THE TIME, I keep thinking that it just won't be loud enough and I will be wanting more. I don't want to get into building a hundred different setups in this truck. I don't have that kind of time anymore. So...I thought...maybe if I get two 12s that will take 1500 each, throw a 3K watt amp and the Bass Cube...may could get it into the mid 40s. Although I'm not competing, I know what mid 140s sounds like, and I would be content with that.

Yeah, those subs would be way to deep unfortunately.

So you're looking for 12's that'll take 1500wrms EACH? I was thinking you meant both.

 

I have not played with IDQ's personally. I have witnessed the dayton HO subs in 10's and they're solid.

Yes, 1500 each. Which is why I assume that custom built neo motors are the only way I can possibly go. Do people still sell the old school TC neo motors?

can you make like 3 inch round baffles or something to raise the mounding depth just a bit?

 

No way.

 

The key here is that the box is going to be going behind the rear seat of my Tundra crewmax. I would like to not have to move the seat up all the way, and thus far with IDQs, I only lose a couple of clicks forward.

i'd say you'll have to settle with a 135 db lol.

 

Or go with 4 8s under the seat ported which would be a lot louder and more appropriate on that power.

Based on your wants, you might look into DD SL series or possibly Oncore audio SM series

Yeah, you're going to have a tall order to run 1500W RSM each in a sealed application with that mounting depth. Can you not run a ported setup or do you not want to run a ported setup?

Oncore seems really interesting, especially their surround technology being able to increase cone area by 100 sq in! Neat the founder of Image Dynamics is the one of the owners of Oncore.

I know. I want to run a sealed setup. My thoughts are that if I can get a sealed setup to play loud and low I will be thoroughly pleased. True SQL.

This is honestly what I keep coming back to. Taco Tunes IDQ setup...I've been thinking about it for weeks. It looks good, it has just about everything I am looking for.

I mightve missed it but has anyone asked what the volume of this box is? Its a truck so i doubt very much regardless if its behind or under the seats? 12s dont tend to fit in trucks (at least not adequately) even sealed most 12s need 1 cube each atleast.

doesnt work that way. In a truck sealed is a guaranteed under 140 db club and not play lows at all. Truck's resonant frequencies are higher than trunks and suvs so you wont play low, you'll peak high with a sealed box. The overall loading acoustics are different as well, good chance where you position the subs, you wont even get any output due to phase cancellation.

 

The proper way to do a truck setup would be ported 8s side fire port under the seat tuned for best SQ and bandwidth. Your sealed idea will be the opposite of actual SQL bass.

 

prime example of a properly done setup.
