Ideas for new setup needed


Recommended Posts

So I sold my md8k and 3 ab tns in custom box for $1500 yesterday, now I need a new setup that outdoes what I just sold. I'll have rite about $2000 for subs and an amp. I'll have rite about 24 cubes ( current is 12 and it's half as tall as cab so figure I'll have double) . I'll probably stay with taramps to power , either md or bass series . Any ideas? Want windy and low, thinking 3-4 18s or 4 15s. Shoot me sum ideas plz! And not brand hating but sum brand s that are tried and true. I only have experience with a few brands and I've stick with em for years.

How much do you think your electrical can handle? 

If it where me, with 24 cubes gross, I think I would try for 4 15's. 2000, 2500 watts a piece. Nothing against Taramps, and I'm not trying to talk you out of using them, but Sundown just came out with the SIA 5k. Throw 2 of those at 4 15's! 

As far as brands, of course Sundown and B2 make some beefy ass subs. Deaf bonce, DC, and Incriminator Audio as well. If you don't mind waiting a while, I love FI. But if those send you over budget, Resilient Sounds has a good rep. And of course, (you'll get mixed reviews from people opinion) but plenty of people use Skar as well. 

This is just my opinion though. Hopefully some other people chime in a well.

my vote is two fi NEO4.11 18's band pass.  When they are in stock. They are rated 3500 to 4500 watts each and they look to be 599 each.

with the space you have you could design probably a 6th order band pass with winisd.   That sucker would be so nasty haha.

 

And a sundown sfb 13500d for 979.00

ok after plugging the numbers you can do a isobaric 6th order bandpass 10.60 net cubic feet rear chamber tuned to 35 hz and and 4.25 net front chamber tuned to 46 hz.  You will need 150 square inches (kerfed) of port in the rear and 150 square inches (kerfed) of port in the front. With 24 cubic feet to use you should be able to fit all that.

I'm on board with a 6th order and two 18s for sure. Dude I sold my setup to came back today and realized he wasn't thinking when he bought my stuff , I never asked him what he planned on putting it all in either since he has multiple cars, but he wanted to put em in a buick LeSabre lol. Needles to say I sold him the subs themself for $600 and threw in a prefab dual 15 box that'll fit his trunk. He's gonna pony up sum cash for an amp that'll run a pair of those subs and he s gonna want me to build him a proper enclosure. Dropped my budget a bit, but I don't have to buy an amp now, the md8k 2ohm is solid and I've had it since new so.  Still will have about 1000-1500 for subs.

My electric is solid, 2 300a alta, 8 agm cells, dual runs of 3/0 welding cable, holds my md8k pretty solid, think I'm going to add more agms tho if I have room in the rear. In the beginning I wanted to go b pillar with 4 15s,was gonna just buy a 4th tnt ( I had the 1500rms version) and wall it,ab dropped the line so that prompted a sub change. I get to keep my bad ass slot port box with the mural my gf painted on it so it'll be garage sub soon too!

Yeah on a side note I'm scared to spend my money on skar, was looking at the evl 18s but I've cooked 3 different ix series skar subs on rated power and amp tuned with dd1 and set with cc1 so Idk if I'd spend hard earned cash on skar yet.

I just received my taramps md 8k 1 0hm version.....i have yet to install it.  Good choice.  I ordered the fi sp4 18 v 2.1 d 2 ohm and im going to do a 4th order for that sub woofer since i have limited room.  Im going to dial back the 8k on it.  I have been waiting almost exactly a month already with prob a couple more months till its done.

Man I love my 8k, been beating it for over a year now and it's solid asf, just gotta be able to feed the beast. Now I gotta figure out a pair of 18s that'll take 8k and then learn more about designing 4th and 6th orders, or find someone who knows their shit to design one for me I'll be all good. As a fall back I guess a b pillar 4 15 wall would be smallest is go.

Ill be honest the four 15 idea is like 45 percent more cone area than two 18's and if you port it and tune low it will be super nasty....maybe even break your windshield.
