There is a definite point of diminishing returns, which is what I think the original poster is referring to, plus the science of acoustics in a small space says that the enclosure and how it interacts with the vehicle can mean more to your eventual SPL number than the quantity of woofers you throw at it.  A properly designed, well constructed, properly installed system will out perform "a ton of woofers thrown in the back" almost every time.

That's why i said everything being equal.  I don't necessarily disagree with the orginal poster.  You can't just throw "a ton subwoofers" in a vehicle and have a good system, just like you can't throw a semi engine in a sports car and have a fast car.  But ferrari has v12 engines for a reason.   Maybe if the guy who was pushing "200 db's" did a little work and researching he would have been able to stomp all over the 2 woofers?  That's just the point i'm trying to make. I have a problem with playing the devil's advocate on occasion.bigger ain't always better - Page 2 - Last Post -- posted image.
