Alright, I'm sure you've read it before and probably been through it; someone bought a setup and loved it but is no longer enough for them. That is also me at the moment and that is what this is about.
What I have:
2010 Chevy Malibu
2 12" fully loaded Fi Q 12s in a sealed enclosure approx. 3 c.f. (built for sealed because of lack of trunk space for ported box)
no upgraded alternator (reason: not easily accessible and no one pimps these malibus, so they don't make those componenets and when they do, they're expensive)
2400 Kinetik battery in trunk
bigger battery upfront (duralast platinum/gold whichever they said was better, lol)
Hifonics Brutus BRZ-2400
0 gauge and big three, but no dimming or anything at the moment
setup wired to 1 ohm
What I want:
to be significantly more powerful but still have great sound quality (on the highway)
to still be able to get quality bass also at lower power levels (when crusing through the city)
What can I do to get from where I am to where I want to be?
1. will more power to the Q12s make a significant difference? or would the difference in power be miniscule as the subs may be close to peak performance at 2400?
2. Would the BTLs be the way to go to get that BOOM? heard they need a boatload of power to actually make them much different from the Q line **just from what I have read, no personal experience**
ANY/ALL advice is appreciated. know how to help me out? please do! Think I'm doing something horribly wrong? tell me!
P.S. installed my first system 5 yeas ago and have done 4 since, not a bass expert but know more than the average Joe
My old build log was deleted when DSS lost their section. So I have to start from scratch. Here is the update for my truck for the 2015 season. This build will be complete by October 2015 and will consist of the following hardware.
6 Team SSA 15" subwoofers
3 Taramps HD30kSPL amplifiers
3 JuiceBox LiFePo4 80ah batteries and 1 20ah.
Single Reflex Bandpass Enclosure 10 cuft sealed, 35 cuft ported, 900cuin port area
The end goal is to do a 165 any where. My last build loudest score was 162.3 outlaw with 6 15" DSS Ethos and 3 Taramps HD8000
This is still my only vehicle that I own.
