    1 12 or 2 10s!

    hey my buddy gave me 1 fusion power factory FPW-1200 and 2 CDT MS-100s I can pick which one I want but I dont know which one I should pick. I like the hardest hitting bass I can get, SQ doesnt really matter a whole ton to me. Which amp should I get to power the 1 12 or the 2 10s?, how many watts?

    And which one is better the 12 is in a ported box and the 10s are in a sealed box.

    Here are the stats that I could find

    FPW-1200

    12" Sub Woofer - DVC 900 Watts Max

    FUSION PowerPlant extreme excursion woofers utilise double magnet structures, die cast aluminuim baskets and superior performance dual voice coils to produce huge power and massive bass. PowerPlant woofers produce more than generous bass from even the smallest enclosures.

    Product Specifications

    Magnet Structure: 200 Oz
    Power Handling (MAX): 900 Watts
    Voice Coil: 2.5" Black Alloy DVC
    Impedance: 4 Ohms
    Free Space Response (Fs): 28.5 Hz
    Efficiency (1W/1M): 94.5dB
    Frequency Response: 22Hz-1.2kHz
    Mounting Diameter: 11.22" / 285mm
    Mounting Depth: 5.82" / 148mm
    Outside Diameter: 12.56" / 319mm

    And the 10s Are CDT MS-100
    They have a max of 250 watts each I think. Other than that I dont know

    In my experience, 12's an bigger just sound like overkill. The best system I've ever heard was ran off of 1 10 inch Cadence wild beat competition sub in a sealed box. Anything bigger sounds like a dick measuring contest and not music. IMO

    not lookin to show off to anyone. I just want it to bump very hard and make my seat vibrate enough to give me a little massage lol. That was the greatest part of my 15in home sub, I could lay in bed and listen to music and get a massage to the beat

    what is the rest of your system? what kind of music do you listen to? what kind of vehicle and where will it go/how much space is there.

    Seriously, as the above poster posted, we need more info. What kind of music do you listen to? What kind of car is it? Do you have sound dampening material?

    What is the RMS on each sub? Rather it is ported or sealed depends on the specs of the subs, a very detailed procecure, usually just follow factory recommendations on the type of box. 1 10 can hit / sound just as hard as 2 12s depending on the quality which is the RMS and watts/manufactor it handles.

    if you simply don't care about SQ and just want boom, it doesn't matter what you go with. Those cheap subs you mentioned will work just fine.

    However, if you want something to snap ahrd with the music and last for a while, you need to get some better equipment.

    Also, it doens't matter if you go with a 10 or a 12 or a 15 or even a 18...when we're talking about LOUD we're focusing on the enclosure, NOT the sub so much.

    How much room do you have to work with? If you're in a SUV or a hatch, then I would go with the bigger sub and make a bigger box. I say this because you said you simply wanted loud and didn't care about anything else.
