2 sundown u series 12” or one sundown zv5 15”?

Recommended Posts

I’m debating if I should get 2 12” u series subs or one 15” zv5 sub. I want to be able to feel the most bass. If I got 2 u series subs I would give them 2000 watts each making 4000 watts total and if I had the zv5 series I would give it 4000 watts. Which should I go with?!?

Go with what fits your space better.  All else being equal I'd probably lean toward two 12"s over one 15".

I was at down4sound Monday getting an xp3000 battery and looked at the u series in person. They seem to have the same soft parts as the sa12's with a bigger motor and a 3" voice coil... The baskets suck balls too. Not really an upgrade over the sa12's imo

Performance wise I would bet that they are a nice upgrade.  You plan on inverting them or something? Or you just want the look of the basket?

Performance wise I know they'll get lower and probably sound better. I just think at $$380 they should have the better baskets. The sa12 baskets are a lot better imo. In the $400 price range subwoofers shouldn't cut corners on the basket. A lot of people invert their subs. This is all jus opinion.

I hear ya.  Its all about what YOU want.  Why not refurbished Xv.2 12's?  $329 each and you'll get both of what you want.  IDK

I wonder why they changed the basket?

      Building a box for 4 sundown E8's to go in the trunk to sit flush against the rear seats and port out the rear seat opening (ski pass).  The attached picture has a rough draft of the design it is a angled box with dimensions of 36"width x 14"tall x 16"top depth x 24"bottom depth. Volume of each sub camber (RED) is 1.344ft3 and port area (BLUE) is 1.5" wide with a area around 18.75 tuned to around 33-34 hz. Mainly just need to know what happens to that tuning once it reaches the center chamber (with the front of the subs) and out the ski pass.

      So I have a zv3 12 now. Im upgrading parts to a 15" zv4 frame, zv4 spl soft parts/zv4 coil, and night shade spider. Im only keeping the zv3 motor. I am looking for a zv3, any size, 10 through 18. I just need the motor, also if its blown or working, i still want it. Id rather get a blown one for the price difference though. If you have a blown zv3 or know anyone with even just a zv3 motor, let me know. Thanks guys

      So I'm trying to design a box for my 2 zv3 12's, i have installed 2 bucket seats in the rear of my 02 chevy pickup, and things have changed a ton in that truck since i last posted here. I plan on doing 2 zv3's in a ported box in between the 2 seats, almost like a tall center console. i found a 3D model of a zv3 12 on a different fourm, but i cant get the person to respond with a link to a download. Im just trying to get an accurate look of the box, and also having a model of the sub would be cool
