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?

      So here is my question, I have ofc 4 gauge ran from the front to my back battery. Right now I only have 1 -1000 watt mono block for my sub. I want to power my door speakers with a 4 channel amp. Should I run 0 gauge to a distro block and continue 0 to my power cell and use the 4 gauge for my door speaker amp. Or should I just do another run of 4 gauge to my second amp.

      So I just recently got into car audio, and first went with a single rf 12 in a prefab box... later upgrading to a dual prefab box. I haven't experienced crazy bass but to me they hit pretty good even though I'm running them both at about rf's rated 750 watts (birth sheet rated 860 watts.) My current setup is with the QBomb(power) dual 12 box and two p3d4-12s wired to 2ohm each then wired in parallel internally by the R750-1D into 1ohm load. The vehicle I'm using is a 08 Honda civic ex, with all stock electrical right now. 
      I have two questions. 
      1. Is it worth it upgrading the box into a custom ported one? or even a custom sealed one?
      2. If so, how would I go about making my own design or bouncing them off this forum? I tried to use WinISD but I'm not sure if what I'm doing is correct, and I don't understand how to calculate the BL or Z (picture below). All the manufacturer lists is the
      Magnet Weight (oz): 96 oz. (2.73 kg.) but doesn't give amperage? "The formula is mass in grams divided by the current in amperes" Does this mean the amps drawn by the subs rms rating?  
      I'm not too sure where to go from here but any help or advice would be appreciated
