April 20, 2001I have a 97 chevy silverado ext cab and i right now run 2 10" rockfords but i am going bigger and can not decide between 6 jl 15s" or 10 rockford 10s both will be loud but i am going for dbs which do u all think will be higher?????
April 24, 2001If you think you`re going to compete in db drag or the like, forget it. Better break out the checkbook and go way past what you suggested.
6 15s will give you greater cone area which means you can move more air which means more spl.
April 24, 2001Agreed, 6 15`s have approximatly the cone area of 12 tens, plus 15`s usually have a larger x-max which means they push even more air. I dunno where you are going to fit them through.
Why don`t you try something like a pair of Digital Designs 9515`s. They will POUND, but need a ported box and lots o power. Very nice subs though, VERY nice. There is a car around here with one of them and last tested it did over 158 dB with 3000 rms to it. Now the full fiberglass interior is finished and the plexi windows are done and he is going for 160 this weekend.
April 24, 2001alright thanks guys but i just went out and bought 6 memphis amps and 4 18s i am hoping it will hit soem high dbs
April 24, 2001You would have been better off with the 6 15s, but good luck!
April 24, 2001What kinda 18`s? How are you going to run 4 subs off 6 amplifiers? What kinda install are you doing?
Sorry, I`m a true car audio nut. Sat in the Thunderbird today. They are re-tuning for the comp, and were doing arounf 155 dB with a little less than 2000 rms to the sub. Impressive.
April 25, 2001the amps are professionally set up i dunno how they are run and i purchased marathon subs at 2000 watt rms 3000 watt max
April 25, 2001hope you planning on doing this all in teh bed with a pas through . that would make far more efficient use of you air space. inside teh cab itself is to small and boxxy to make really high db. youd be better off with a pass through and a sealed bed.
