Hi. I hope you can help me out. I would greatly appreciate it.
I am looking for some recommendations on a sub or maybe 2 for my amp situation. The sub(s) would go in the trunk of a Toyota Camry. I don't want to over power, but I certainly don't want to under power either. My amp is a Rockford Fosgate Power T600-4. It's a 4 channel amp... 100x4 at 4 ohms. It is currently powering Focal 165 VB components up front (100 watts x 2) and the other two channels are bridged to 300 watts at 4 ohm to power a sub or two. The Rockford "birth sheet" claims the amp is doing 390 watts at 4 ohm bridged. For subs I was looking at JL Audio, Boston Acoustics, Rockford Fosgate, and Alpine. I've always considered myself a SQ person, but I like volume so I guess I'm really a SQL person. Other factors... I'm trying to decide between a sealed or ported enclosure. I've always liked sealed enclosures, BUT I'm not sure if my amp (with those watts) will drive a sub or two in a sealed enclosure to volume levels that will satisfy me. I thought to myself... I may have to compromise and go with a ported enclosure for more output? Another thing... should I go with (1) 12" sub or maybe go with (2) 10" subs? I thought if I went with (1) 12" sub I would have to go with a 4 ohm sub. If I went with (2) 10" subs I would be forced to purchase (2) 2 ohm dual voice coil subs and wire them to 4 ohm. I don't know whether to get a premade enclosure from JL or buy raw drivers and have a box made locally.
JL Audio has 2 ohm DVC subs, it's just that I *think* they may need more power than I have to offer? If you can help I would really appreciate it. This is a big decision for me and I'd like to make the right one. Thank you so much.
Personally, I would just go with the JL bass wedge. It's in a ported enclosure so you can get the volume that you're looking for. You're only going to get a noticeably louder volume out of a sealed enclosure if you over power the sub which your amplifier can not do. It also takes away the hassle of having to find an enclosure altogether. Considering its JL, you will also get some good SQ. However, remember that 10's are going to be a bit more responsive and accurate than 12's but the 12's will be able to hit lower bass notes. I would say if you listen to a wide variety of music than the JL wedge would be perfect. It'll give you a good balance of all these factors that you have listed. Hope this helps!
