    I have a CRX and im wondering what subwoofer setup to get... im making a custom enclosure, I have a pyramid
    :thumbsdown: (i know crappy, but i got it off my friend for 30) 1000wt by 2 channels... it will do for now... im going to run 1 gauge wire and a capacitor... i am thinking of 1 15" sub facing me between the wheel wells and all mounted up and everything... that should look good... hopefully... well if you have sugesstions... they are welcome...
    thanks
    TJ

    2 12s. No better setup for accuracy/power. Unless you have a 1,000 dollar 12. then one

    its all about the amp, box volume, and position of the sub.

    I had 4 12" in my blazer it was the loudest I had ever heard. but 2 12" is the best for the bass, a 15" will be too sloppy, and a 10" will be too tight. 12" is the way to go only get an 8" if your using it as a main speaker.



    PS my subs were kicker comp VRs but if you have the money go for the solo!!!!

    1 10" is all you need to sound "good". after that, you are going to sound "loud"

    loud = rice

    i have a fosgate punch power DVC in a small sealed box that is stowed away in my spare tire well. in the del sol, its plenty loud for me, running off 2 channels of a 75x4 amp.

    if you want to be a ricer, get 3213123 15's
    if you just want your music to sound good, at ALL volumes, 1 10 is all you need

    just read the side of the box of your subs and figure out how loud and low you want it to go...remember its a SUB woofer so it doesn't have to be just bass.....I was gonna do 2 10s in my hb, but sold it before I did, if I could do it again I would do just one 12.

    The enclosure makes a huge diff, just my .02 cents.

    a buddy of mine had a 12" in a bandpass box, sounded awesome. A 15" would be cool to though, it would be heavy.

    i started with two 12" kenwoods in a ported box, then went to three 10" mtx 8000's in a sealed box, now I have one 10" kappa perfect in a sealed box and I like the single ten the best. The other stuff was just too big, too loud, and makes your car rattle and sound like ass

    Your such a pussy sol. Thats not true at all. 1 10 is too small, unless it's a super high quality/power handling 10. 2 10s is plenty in a properly powered/volume/placement setup. 2 high quality 12s is a good balance between having crazy bass when you want it, and tight accurate bass when you don't.


    I'd run my friggen computer with 1 10 inch at home.

    if you need more than one 10 or 12 (depending on the bass you like)... then your using shitty speakers

    i have a crx with 2 10's and its loud but also sounds good, kenwood speakers, 6x9's in back with 6x1/2 in the doors, with a pioneer deck and rockford fosgate subs and amp. i mean if you just want bass then :blink: get 2 12's but if you want enough bass and still be able to hear the music then get to 10's. remember the wheel well is about a foot in a half away from you not in a trunk and also its going to bounce off the hatch.
