Hello everyone! New to this particular forum. 

I am looking to replace my old Rockford Fosgate T1 10D4 with something new. I ran the T1 for a long long time then stopped. I just don't feel it hitting in my chest like I remember. So hence the need to upgrade. I am running a Rockford Fosgate Prime R500x1d. Birth sheet says 633 RMS so real world I'm estimating 560 RMS. 

I have seen the SA-10 rated at 500 RMS but I've seen conflicting details. I do not want to under power this sub. 

I know the sd.3 is supposed to be more SQ based and has an rms rating of 500 rms.

Obviously I would like whichever speaker I decide to have good SQ but I also want to feel it in my chest. I miss that feeling and watching everything in my truck shake.

 

Any opinions or advice in either direction would be much appreciated.

 

Thank you

If you want that "punch in the chest" feel, get the SA-10 and port it. It will still handle that RF amp.

I had the SD-12. I liked it but it's made for sealed enclosures only.

I had an E-10 and those get loud too on very little power too. If you had the room, you could almost do two (2) E-10s.

 

But to your original question....I think the SA is a no-brainer. What vehicle is this going in?

I do not have the room for (2) of any sub lol. This is going in my 1996 Chevy K1500. It's my daily driver and my son rides in it with me. No room to go under the seats for subs. For now this will be built directly behind my drivers seat since that will still leave me a little bit of storage room on the back seat in between his car seat and the sub box. Now once he's old enough to ride upfront that whole back seat is coming out and I'll go back to getting a bit crazy again lol.

Strap him on the roof and build a wall......

So your box will essentially be in the backseat behind you....correct?

      Hey Crew,
      I have some questions about setting up my system.
      So far it consists of:
      2008 Chevy Trailblazer LS
      Pioneer FH-X731BT
      Rockford Fosgate 3Sixty.3
      Rockford Fosgate P1000-1bd (2007/2008)
      Rockford Fosgate PEQ Knob for Bass
      Rockford Fosgate P500-4 (2007/2008)
      Rockford Fosgate Punch Pro PPS4-6
      Rockford Fosgate Punch P1T-S
      2x Kenwood KFC-W3009
      Rockford Fosgate 0 Gauge Amp Kit
      Stinger RCAs
      Sky High Car Audio Speaker Wire
      I'm going to be using the 360.3 for active crossovers instead of the passive ones that came with the P1T-S.
      I'm using 2 channels of the 500-4 for the 6.5" and the other 2 channels for the tweeters in the dash. I'm gonna change that once I get a Punch 200-2. Then I will use the 2 channels that were used for the tweeters to power two rear speakers and use the 200-2 for the tweeters.
      The first thing I'm wondering is: if it's okay to run the 2 RJ-45 cables used to control the 360.3 and the PEQ next to the speaker wires and RCA cables along the right side of the car. Will this cause any noise in either the speaker wires or RCA cables, or even in the RJ-45 cable? 
      Second question is: what's the best way to  ensure that I'm not feeding too much power to the tweeters? They are capable of 60 Watts RMS but my amp is able to do up to 125 Watts RMS. How do I keep the Watts down to keep from blowing them?

      I’m buying 4 2ohm subs yet I’m putting them in two separate boxes I’m going to wire it down to 1 ohm but the problem is how would I do it since there’s two separate boxes?

      My good friend Aaron, aka Psyph Morrison, has never had a real system in any of his cars before.  If you don't know who Psyph is (pronounced Sife), look him up on itunes, spotify or any other music app out there.  Youtube as well.  I have known him over 10 years and even worked with him on his last 3 albums as an executive producer.  Ok, now that is out of the way, the reason he is getting a system is because well, the entire time i have known him and worked with him making music, especially music with a lot of bass, he has never had a system of his own. I don't know anyone who has had more car issues than him so we really never made it to the discussion of a system. Not too long ago he picked up a 2002 Honda Accord 4 door.  I knew right then he has a reliable vehicle finally.  So i offered to slap some beat in it for him.  Watching him pull up, slapping his own music in a (not so great) stock sound system was really bothering me.  How can my boy ride around like that if he know's ME? 
       
      Long story cut short...his car is at my shop for a few weeks while i figure out what i am going to do. I have NO "plans".  I just want to get him some good equipment, set it up proper and make him happy!
       
      ****NOTE, anything you see here is subject to change as i am totally freestyling this.  Trying to just make it work.
       
      First i stopped by Arden Audio in Sacramento Ca.  They always have what i need in stock over there and if they don't i can get it same or next day.  I decided to pick Psyph up a new head unit first and foremost.  I also got the dash kit and wiring harness to go with it.  Grabbed some SkyHigh 16ga OFC speaker wire to run to the doors. 
       
      The system will consist of (so far)
      Pioneer DEH X7800 BHS Head Unit
      Rockford Fosgate Punch 1000.1 (BASS)
      Rockford Fosgate Punch 300.2 (Highs)
      (2) Rockford Fosgate P3 12" subs (ported enclosure)
      (1) Set Rockford Fosgate T2 6.5" separates 
      SMD Fuse / Grounding Blocks
      Mechman 1/0 OFC Power Wire
      Skyhigh 12 and 16ga Speaker Wire
       

       
       
       

       

       
      I already had a P300.2 but i got him a matching 1000.1 to go with it.
       
       

       
       

       
       

       
       
       

       
      These P3 12" subs are not brand new but might as well be. They are in brand new condition! They are my old ones.  This box was already finished and just hanging around the shop.  I KNOW it sounds good so it should do great in his trunk!  The trunk floor is at an angle so i have to make a platform and flatten it out some so the box sits level.
