the Dual will give you deeper more robust bass, and the ability to drain alot more power into it. The DVC wont more as much air as 2 SVC but it will be louder and produce more db. I have ran MTX, JL, and ADS i have a 12 ADS that i loves but i only have one and i wanted to make a custom box but decided not to do any sick system in my SS. I have heard personally JL, Orion, and ADS DVC subs and for our big cars i would suggest JL w3's for boom boom base, W6's for boom boom with cleaner sound, which isn't needed unless the sub is sitting next to you. or the ADS which is a superb sound Q sub IMO, its and older version when ADS made better products. If you want some used subs and AMPs e-mail me...i have my SPL system waiting for a good home. I could hook you up with a sub, amp and capacitor.
i'd suggest sonic fx subs. they have a d series and a q series, q being the better one. very good product, i know the guy who makes em and he's awesome to anwser any questions you have. his name is doug and his website is Sonic FX he is also coming out with a line of amps shortly aswell.
DD AUDIO! There is NOTHING better than the subs these guys make. As said before, they are all hand made. The 15" (9515) has a 300 oz magnet My brother has one in his Civic with a 4 cubic foot box. It is powered by a Rockford Fosgate amp pumping out a max of 2000 watts. The installers said that it is the loudest 15" they have ever heard...at close to full volume they were losing consciousness. THESE SUBS ARE SERIOUS. If you are looking for 12s, put 2 of the 9512s in. You will be blown away. They are $560 each, factory direct.
Apart from that, Phoenix Audio sells the Titanium Elite 12D. This sub is an absolute beast. It will set your back $900 though. I believe that this is the best 12" sub money can buy. Pair them up with 2 PG Titanium Elite 1200.1 amps, and you will probably knock down your house if you are a block away.
Go with one of these two choices and you won't be disappointed.
Here is a picture of the 9515 installed in my brother's car:
hey i like the kicker comp vr's there priced very nice((2 for 150.00 ish)) but if money is not a problem the i would go with JL audio's W7's which are very good subs..but memphis has come out with a new sub,((forgot the name)) my teacher has two and he((with a 1500 watt class d amp from memphis))has hit 163.2DB ..hope this helps..mike,
i have 4 alpine type r 1221d's which are the 2 ohm subwoofer series, they sound awesome in my custom made box, which has 4 port holes thru the rear deck and put it this way i cant crank it because the fear of blowing out the rear window.! alpines will run you about 180 for 2. MY WEBPAGE
I have 2 Infinity Kappa Perfect 12" SVC (single voice coil). they sound pretty good in a prefab box. I could get more out of them w/ the proper box, but I needed quick exit for the autocross days.
On the DVC (dual voice coil) subject, there really isn't an advantage to a DVC over a SVC, or vice versa. It only gives you more flexibilty. I have yet to see proof were a DVC sub will outperform 2-SVC subs from the same brand line.
It really depends on the amplifier you are going to run, and its limits on load (4ohm vs. 2ohm vs. 1ohm).
You need to decide if you want clean, tight bass, or loud rumbly-dumbly-boomy bass. I haven't seen one that can do both great.
It's been many years since I've had a good stereo system and that's all about to change here shortly. I recently installed a new Alpine deck CDE-175BT and just last week I ordered a Rockford Fosgate P1000X5 amp, RFC1D 1 Farad Digital Capacitor, RFCB140 140 amp circuit breaker, T1650 6.5" 2 way...
Well, I've been working on my door panels and doors lately, trying to deaden them. I took the door panels off and fiberglassed the backs of them to make them a bit more sturdy, then put a layer or two of dynamat over the fiberglass. On the doors themselves, I've used pieces of 1/8" wood to...
Does anyone have any ideas on something I can do in the defroster vents w/ a tweeter set? I have an extra and think it might sound good-looking for any input since I am taking up the dash for my new Z28 cluster install soon.
