Default what plays lows and hard on my ia 20.1

Im bout to start a new build soon and want to know what will play lows and hit hard with my amp. Right now i have 2 12 in skars but i was looking at dc lv 4s and dd 3512. What do you guys think stick with what i got or move on? And why? I want low end heavy hitter.

The dc subs will probably play lower than the dd's. Either choice will be an upgrade from the skars. I don't know if you'll have enough power to get the full potential from the dd or dc subs though but I like headroom.

My idea of powering subs is a sundown 3k to two sa12's (example, nothing to do with nuthugging). Like I said, I like headroom. After rise, how much power are you really seeing? Don't get me wrong, 2k to two 1k rated subs will be loud but people get disappointed when they clamp their setup and find out they are only getting half the power they thought they were. With that said, how would you feel if you found out you are really only getting 1k to your subs that are rated at 1k each? Not quite underpowered but not what you expected right? I'd just keep the skars and build a different box.

Ahhhh ok good way to look at it thanks. But i just got off the phone with dc and they said there 12in level 3s shiped to me for 265 each. And there the new ones that have more suspension, flat leads wider motor and 900 rms. If i get a pair of them and wire down to .5 on my amp that should be good right?

You should be fine since that amp is .5 ohm capable but keep in mind that you'll lose efficiency when wiring lower than rated and that means the amp will need more current to make power. Plus, I wouldn't pay $265 per sub unless money wasn't an issue. There are much more options at that price. You should do a search on American bass xfl's.

im going to just throw this out there. Tell us a little about the enclosure that you have now. I say this because although i havent personally used the skars, from everything i hear they are supposed to perform very well on the low end. perhaps a more effecient box design or lower tuning could give the results youre looking for without spending more money on new woofers
