i have an amp capable of at least 800w rms.
i want to know if im better off getting a single 12" sub that can handle
800w rms or am i better off getting two 12" subs delivering 400w rms.
i plan to run either application sealed @ 1 cu.ft each.
so .... one sub @ 1cu.ft or 2 subs @ 2.0 cu.ft .
whats my best best bet:wink

you will be better off getting 2 Subs almost always

really higher end components usually cost more to save space but if you can swing the extra space, 2 subs is better than one

your amp has plenty of wattage to handle 2 12's and i would highly recommend a ported box.

i've had 2 15's in a regular box and 2 12's in a ported box and was surprised at how much harder the 12's produced that deep bass

ported box:



even better and more awesome to look at, plexiglass:




something like this is def. for show and not bass:



go for the 2 subs esp if you have a 4dr. rarely does one sub produce enough bass to get into the interior unless you keep your center rear armrest open and even then, even 2 subs just wasn't enough bass for me


i will bring up another idea, i have 1 10" sitting behind me in my 4 dr because rarely do i ever have an occasion to have 4 people in my Accord. it produces enough bass and plus a free back massage esp. in rush hour is great
