    Need help/suggestions with Audio setup

    Need help/suggestions with Audio setup,

    I just bought 2) 12" Audiobahn Flame Q Subs (AW1206T) (see pics)
    they are beautiful!! they can handle alot of power also. I am looking for a box to show off there baskets and yet still maintain good SQ. Know where i can find one?

    Also has anyone ever tried the puch/pull isobarik configurations before either and are there boxes made for these?

    I bought a set of 5.25" Audiobahn components for the front, for the back should I
    A) buy some components for back as well
    B) buy some regular speakers
    C) leave stock ones there (will the subs overpower them?, in a Jeep Cherokee)

    Thanks!!

    With 3 12's in the back, I wouldn't bother with rear fill, and I'd disconnect the factory rear fill speakers. It's more than likely going to be overpowered by the subs, but I guess it comes down to how you set it all up.

    How are you powering the new 5.25 splits up the front? Off an amp?

    Just ditch the rear fill, or if you really want it then use H/U power. Beautiful subs. I've heard they sound good, I hope you don't run into any reliability issues. the JL audio FAQ website has great information on sub enclosures including push-pull isobaric enclosures. But, do you really need an iso box? Are you low on space? You can always mount a sub upside down. I'm not sure how much volume you gain in the box when you do this, but you'll want to figure that into your calculations for box size. I saw a sweet fiberglass enclosure for those subs, buth there were three... Two mounted standard and one inverted to see the basket...

    You'll definitely want an amp for the components up front. If the 2 - 12s are fed the proper power, they will easily drown out speakers running off the hu. Plus, it just sounds 10x better.

    For the rear, I would either ditch them or get a set of non-components. Again, power them off an amp. You'll probably want a set that can handle similar power as the front.

    Audiobahn intake amps are very sweet looking too. Chrome mirror finish with blue underglow. But you don't have to lock yourself into one brand. I've heard good and bad about Audiobahn. But their new lineup sure looks kewl!
