I'd go 2 10". It all depends on what kind of music you like to listen to though too. 10" are more acurate and can provide tighter bass...AusXH said:I'm lookin at getting subs for the XH.
I'm thinkin of either getting two 400W 10"s or a single 500W 12".
What do reckon would sound better with four 250W 6x9"s?
hehe, i had to wait for your replyrolfy72 said:Yo' seeming you've got 2 sets of 6X9's(ya like loud..!) U will need as much cone area you can get so go for the 2 10's ya got plenty of room in that pano for the boxes...got a amp to drive the subs?
If it was me I'd sell the 6X9's(sorry)and buy some decent coaxial speakers or some splits to go up front and the single 12...mmmm more amps!
Depends what U want sound quality or loud.
Jase_ELXR8 afraid thats an old wifes tale...
Any special reason why you reckon i should wire em up in parallel and bridge em??? I got a 4 channel amp...XR8XTC said:Not a problem. Two tens will be your best bet.
Wire your two subs in parralel, and bridge them across the channels on your amp.
If you are unsure of how to "bridge and wire in parralell" ask the car audio store to draw you a wiring diagram and set up your amp, they can do that on the counter before you install.
If you have a panelvan or a sedan face your subs away from the front of the car, this will give the bass a deeper sound and a slight volume increase. If you have a ute or u would rather see the subs, face them in and you will feel a lot more vibration.
I believe this would be the best setup for you and gives quite a good result for the money spent.
Shame.... MDF will be the go then.rolfy72 said:Nah not yet...they are only the shape of the area and would need heaps of work to get them to a useable stage and the one that has had the most work belongs to me ute! It will be a long time coming yet...must fix roof and front fence first.(Before I die hopefully)
You could make a mdf box to fit the area with the sub facing strait up. Dont know what it would sound like I guess you could find out...if it sounds ok go to the wreckers and buy a second hand tray plate that you can cut out slots(or drill heaps of holes)above the speaker and place some sort of grill over it!
Bass with loadspace and no bolts needed! Unsure about the petrol fumes tho so you may need to look into it a bit...
Ps Ive heard a xf van with 1 10" sub...the low bass(40hz down) lift in these vans is big(sub was at the front middle of the tray facing backwards)
