    i have a rockford amp that does 170rms x2 @ 2 ohms and 90rms x2 @ 4 ohms.

    would this be suitable for a dual 12" subwoofer setup in a sealed box?

    and then i need recommendations for a 12" sub that would be suitable for that amp and perhaps how much cubic feet in the box i would need to handle said subs...

    :x:

    So bridged, the amp should do around 340w @ 4 ohms.

    With that amnt of power, I would say to do a single 12". Ported. And with that you can basically match the spl of having 2 12s sealed.

    I have a IDQ12v2 in a 1.6ft^3 box, tuned to 29Hz.

    The amp being suitable depends on the 12" dual subwoofers you are looking at.

    As for the 12" subs, you'll have to give a pricerange on how much you want to spend.

    And the enclosure size is dependant on the woofers you are getting, so you cant really say until you pick a pair out.

    nm i ended up getting

    2 12" pioneer subs model TS-W303C
    1 bandpass box with the subs facing in at each other and the chambers on both sides have a tall vertical port at the front of the box typical with bandpass boxes i assume...

    the amp is a rockford fosgate 360 a2.

    the setup sounds pretty badass and hits REALLY hard.

    im happy even though the numbers may not be perfect on paper :thumbsup:
