Well an IDQ sub will outperform the RE sub any day of the week, but for the $$ these subs (RE) are def worth a try. You can always upgrade latercaptain_shrapnel said:Damn! This thing is gonna end before my financial aid for school comes in! Ok, I might have to pull something out of my ass... Guys, I was gonna run an IDQ 12 with around 300 watts (2 ohm), but if these RE subs are a better buy, lemme know please so I can beg borrow or steal the ta-ching.
Bumpin said:Okay for you guys who know better than I do about RE products, i'm interested in buying their Component Set and (1) RE8. My question to you guys is, how good is their component set AND would their RE8 hit harder than the stock 8 inch sub in a Ford Expedition?
If the depth is a problem for you, you could build a spacer ring or actually a second baffle to fit over your existing one to extend the depth of the box.♣AsleepZ♣ said:I just hope it fits in the 1 cb. ft. box I got (sealed)... That's what they recomend I think.
Those subs only come in 4ohm configuration, so that only leaves you the option of running them at 1 ohm final load or 4 ohm final load. You have two options when it comes to amps....either a monoblock amp that is stable to 1 ohm loads, a monoblock that will run around 400 watts at 4 ohms, or a 2 channel amp that is bridgeable at 4 ohms....the cheapest would prolly be the monoblock, but the 2 channel amp is nice because it has more than one use, so if you ever want to change your system around, your 2 channel amp could be used to run a set of comps instead, but budget wise, the monoblock will be cheaper to buy. Here are your wiring options with those subs:scrappy said:Okay I already have a box that is 2 cuft without placement and plan on using that for the 2 re12. If I get a 500 watt amp will that be good or what size amp to me less power handling means less money on the amp. Ive been looking for a budget setup in my truck and I think I found one. What amp should I get a hifonics?
yes it is. I just ordered to RE12on Friday. On Monday Im ordering the amp probally the mono for 149.99. How do you guys think this will sound it will go into my suv. Im putting the amp in on of the back cargo areas that way when I need the whole back all I do is take out the box.HighRollerII said:The XXX6.5 $179 (pair)
is that the components?
