Im looking for a lot of SPL but good SC. I have a ported enclosure for Four 12" subwoofers I previously ran the Pioneer Premier Pro TS-W3002D4 and was very disapointed i believe they are 3000w max and 1000w RMS but i only had a hifonics 2600W brutus on them. are they any good? My four 1000w pioneer subwoofers on my 2600w brutus sounded better than the premier pro's did.
I also tried four alpine type-r subwoofers with the 2600w brutus, and the four 1000w pioneers still sounded better (these are the old pioneer subwoofers they are all black). I was wondering what is a good subwoofer out on the market right now, or even a older subwoofer that produces a lot of SPL im looking for real deep bass, I want to run four 12" subwoofers as I stated.
I want to try something totally different than pioneer or alpine because that is all I have ever ran. As for an amplifier I do have a JL audio 1000/1 amp but I also like the 2600W brutus it seems like a decent amp for the price. what amp would be a good choice?
I was also wondering about the kicker solo classic subwoofers, they say they are for a sealed enclosure but I was wondering how they would perform in a ported enclosure.
I wanted to run four alpine type-x too but I dont think I have enough air space. any suggestions?

changing subwoofers and keeping the same box will net you nothing.
The enclosure is the key to the setup.

Are the old Pioneer subs single voice coil?   I always just recommend JL subs if the user has no other preference. Personally I like Aura, Diamond Audio.
This is what I do for FUN!

The Kicker CVX's have done weel so far in each car I have put them in for a daily setup.    Sound much better then the L7's and L5's but still have alot of output.

Do you know what the specs are for a ported enclosure for the kicker cvx?

hey Akickz,

I am running two 15' cvx's in a 6.5 cube ported box with a brutus 2610 and it sounds great, so I am sure that the 12's will sound just as good. If thats what you are looking to get. If I am not mistaken it is around 2 cubes per sub for 12's.

get dual 2 ohm speakers. other wise the output of the amp at 2ohms is about 1300W RMS.
Hifonics works best at 1ohm.

What about running a lot of 10's. I never ran 10's before. And what are some other good 12's besides kicker cvx's
