i dont know..
since he technically moved his conciousness over, is he really dead? People consider being alive, the fact that you have concious thought...
So in that thinking, he isn't dead at all :P
I personally run an alpine type R 12" sub in a qlogic sealed box. I must say that for a prefab box it sounds pretty decent. I can get good rolling bass when needed and nice tight punchy bass when I want it. If I were to take the time to build a better custom box for it, I know it would sound even better.
This is the end of my post
500W RMS is a LOT of power for a sub. I have a PT cruiser, 1 10" JL 10w3v3 in a sealed box - with a claimed "300W" - measured was more like 140W (thats power input to the amp with a 60hz sinewave on the input at -6db) - and I have the subs input turned down to about 25% of the total available power - it's WAY too loud sometimes. 500W RMS (if its a real 500 watts) will get you heard a mile away. It's all in the quality of the amp - as pointed out above.
Subjective. IMHO subs sound different from woofer to woofer in the same line - manufacturing differences, tolerances, and all. Most folks won't hear it.Again, no. The subwoofer has almost NOTHING to do with the sound it produces. Most of the sound comes from the type of power you put into it and the enclosure it's in. As long as you get a proper amplifier and don't cheap out on a crappy Sony/Jensen product then it'll make any subwoofer sound better. That 10 inch subwoofer could sound much louder, deeper and clearer than any 12 inch powered by a bad amplifier.
my 10" is much louder than my buddies ghetto 15" IB setup with 750W going to it. I haven't measured his, but I bet its 300W+ real power. The clarity of the sound is much greater too.
And what a terrible, terrible idea that was. The breakup on those subs..... OMG.well think what sound is, sound is the vibration of air, that's why kicker started making squared subs because a square has more area than a circle, so in theory it should be louder, but as you said when you increase the size you also change the frequency.
I'm not a fan of the isobaric design. 1 10" in a sealed box can be 0.8 cuft (depending on the speaker and the design of your system, crossover points, the cabin, etc).1 12" could be happy in a single cubic foot.It's OK to mix sub brands with your other speakers.
Single 12" sealed should do fine.
However, if you are really concerned about the space, and can afford an extra driver, go for iso-barik box. It's more complex to build, less loud, and some subs are no good for it, but it cuts box size in half. Read more here.
I like the isobaric design, problem is I think it will look ugly in my install. I want it all hidden, nice and neat. I want people to look and not notice anything.
