Default 4 Type Rs or 8 type Es

Well, I'm wanting to do a (another) system in my 93 Explorer 4 door. I want to go with the ZX2500.1 amp but i can't decide on subs. I was thinking about going with 4 Alpine 12" SWR-1242D's ported @34 HZ in a 10cu. box or 8 Alpine 12" SWE-1242 sealed. I really want to limit myself @ $2000 for everything and still want something with decent SQ. Any ideas or thoughts?

yea...but most people say that there 2500's birth sheet is more like 2900+ RMS @ 2 ohms, so that would be plenty for 4 Rs

Default Re: 4 Type Rs or 8 type Es

yeah, but it depends on the amp. It's the same thing like rockford fosgate. Some of their amps will do 2501 watts, and other amps will do 2999rms..... you never could tell.....

if we imagine that a kciker 2500.1 does 2900rms, it's still 700rms per sub ...

you can go with two 12'' BTLs in a ported box on a 2500.1 and you will be excited

The BTL's aren't super efficient with low power. Give proper advice.

isn't the BTL rated at 2000w each ? that would be underpowering them big time !

its roughly 1200 rms a piece, that's not enough for a BTL?

i know one guy running a btl by my house on a 1606.... That bish was loud, no joke

Look @ the test results with 2000 watts to the btl...yeah, it still did good, but there are other drivers keeping up with it there. It needs a lot more Power than 1200 watts to really get going.

just wondering is there anyone with a system in a older explorer? I'm just curious about port placement. My last system i had the port towards the side window.
ALSO....is there anything BAD about the Type R 12's, I hear people call them the " Hype R" alot. J/W
