Default 2 Custom UFO 18's or 6 Type-R 12's

Tried this over at SMD and didn't get very many hits.....


Ok, so me and 97ssblazer are in a debate, or kind of a this or that, on what would be louder, sound better, and be better over all.

Back story, I have 2 UFO BTL motors that I want PSI to build into 3000+ RMS to run each on a T2500-1bd (Not CP). 97ssblazer (Mike) is saying instead of having those built, sell the motors and do 6 Type R 12s.

Cost aside (cause the type rs are stupid cheap and that would win for cost), what would be better?

He says 6 12's cause it will have more cone area 480cm^2*6=2880cm^2. I can't argue that, it has more cone area. But from what I have been reading, it's cone area * xmax. If this is the case then it will be

480*20 = 9600*6 = 57600 for the 6 12s

If the 18's are built for a 28mm xmax as fi's have

1210*28 = 33880*2 = 67760 for the 2 18s

I know there needs to be a lot more in to this like box and power and what not to make a REAL informed decision, but what do you guys think?

I think the 2 18s with be better, he says 6 12's. The good thing about the 12's is they are a stocked piece so if I blow them (speading 2500RMS+ between each set of 3) I just swap them out, and they are stupid cheap.

It will be in a 97 GMC Jimmy in the cargo area, sub up port up. If more info is needed, LMK, I will try and keep this up from my phone.


Let's throw this in the bottom, who has had experience with the new T2D215s? Should I just keep them and run them at 1 ohm each?

Would be Subs up Port up, only way to do it in those trucks with a box that big due to limited space and how the amp rack would have to go in there.

R's for sure. 6 12's would be ridiculous.
