Default which 18?

I am planning on doing a build in a few months an was wanting to do 2 low power 18s. They would be getting about 750rms each. Im looking for SQ.

Any suggestions on a sub that would fit this well would be appreciated.

Also, this will be in a 2002 dodge ram 1500 quad cab with 1497rms total.

Please, elaborate.










And to the OP, there are a ton of options out there. You will have more luck with smaller subs, mainly due to the fact that not many companies make an 18" woofer for "SQ". You could look into a 21" Maelstrom, or something along those lines. Otherwise, look at Image Dynamics, CDT, Ultra Subs, etc

12" sub imho will have better response and tighter bass. the 18 will be slower and less responsive.

It's all about the setup. My 18's are just as responsive as any 10" sub in a sealed enclosure I've ever heard.

listen. I am doing 18s, period. I currently have 12s and yes they sound great, but i love the lows.

And to whoever thinks 18s sound sloppy needs to build a good box for SQ use. I can make a 10 sound just as sloppy as an 18. Throw it in a 12cu box and i guarantee its sloppy.

And im going to get a box design from pete kulicki for a strictly SQ setup that goes low. I know how its going to sound essentially. I dont want input on size of subs, just which ones. I was thinking the 18 ssd. idk if my budget will allow the q's

Ok then, if you know what you're doing already, why bother asking? I agree, but no need asking opinions when you already have ur mind made up
