^exactly^ i had 2 12w6v2s in a slot ported box for a total of 800W at 4 ohms of resistance and they hit louder than my 13w7 in a sealed box puttin out 1000w at 3 ohms of resistance. i have to get a slot ported box made so i can compare the 2 12's with the 13 again, because comparing slot ported to sealed is apples and oranges, as they say.eddiem67 said:It all in the install...
Oh I think two tens with less power will sound better due to more cone area.
yes by 3db's, but if you port the single sub, they equal out because you gain 3db's by porting.finese1 said:I was trying to figure the physics in that. But if you use two subs bridged against one sub wouldnt it give more pressure in the cabin due to two sound waves traveling?
All things being equal, the output and the SQ would be identical in your example. It can be argued that the two woofer system would be more reliable due to the lower power. Assuming all 10" drivers in this example can handle 400 Watts (same model), the two 10" system with 800 Watts of power handling would never get hot enough to burn even under severe clipping with the 200 Watt amplifer. Whenever you can split up the abuse over more voice coils, you will have a more reliable system. It's better to get louder with displacement than power.Beamonesque said:which sounds louder and or better.
2 x 10's at 200 watts each or 1 x10" at 400 watts?
