  1. Got a few questions in regards to DC audio equipment as i plan on getting two 15s to go in my trunk as a DAILY driver that i will compete with here or there. I plan on running a BARE MINIMUM of a 5k watt amp (Please dont suggest electrical upgrades as this isnt an electrical thread and please dont ask "whats my budget" if i was worried too much about budget i wouldnt be looking to make the jump to DC. Thank you.) 1. do they make the level 6 as a 15"? I see only one online dealer that even shows them no place else not even the dc audio website. 2. What are all the options I see spider, leads and dust cap options but whats the cooling option? all I know is ive seen some subs with a large center hole for cooling and some without. Will this reduce the overall power handling and/or extend the life of my sub? Side note my subs usually get beat on pretty hard for about 1 or more hours at a time. 3. What are the different spider options? I see theres a medium, medium/stiff, stiff, super stiff. what what and what does that mean other then a longer break in period? does that effect power handling at all and/or the duration of life of my sub? 4. Someone told me its possible to get extra spiders to help the sub stay in one piece is this true or does this just fall under 3? 5. I would like to run at least a 1 ohm setup but should i get dual 0.7 ohm just to get more out of my 5k watt amp for these beasts? (goes for lvl 5 or lvl 6 if it does come as a 15) 6. If this was YOUR build going in YOUR vehicle that you drive around for hours at a time with it basically on full tilt what ohm load would you run and how much power would you put minimum if you had the last two subs dc would ever make and if you break them your SOL? This question applies to both lvl 5 and lvl 6. 7. You think i should just call DC?
  2. Quick question for the people at Dc Audio. So i wanted to do 2 of the Dc audio level 2 12's on a 2.0k amp. Now i have a couple questions. Im the type of guy that likes to have some good sound quality and at the same time wreck the lows, so what should i tune these to in a ported box? Also should i go with the dual 2 ohm and bring them to 1 ohm, or the dual 4 ohm and bring them to 2 ohm final impedance? Thanks, all replies are appreciated Hopefully i will become part of the DC audio club.
