I still think, anyone into SQ, is not looking into a digital amp.

I think anyone that thinks they can hear a difference between a class a/b and a class d amplifier cruising down the road at 60mph is fooling themselves.

Sorry I was just correcting the misinformation that you were posting about the fuses. Kinda wimpy and unfortunate that you try to criticize me and then when I show you the correct information its because of my attitude now ?

take this as experience next-time you wanna drop your 2 cents in try to do it without criticizing someone buddy

check out the boston acoustics spg-555. it's not 15, but its not a 12 either. cone surface is 555cm3 so that's more like a 13'', however it has the height of a 10.
its shape allows it to fit in a corner enclosure, which will give you maximum cabin gain. it is a pretty loud sub, yet SQ is great, and the removable parts system could come in handy if you do fry the voice coil. I have one and I am very happy with it.

check out... ficaraudio.com

very hard to beat those woofers for getting that kind of quality / output for their price. a saz-1500 paired with a 15" Q would move some serious air.

if you call them, ask to talk to Scott. he's the owner and is a really stand up guy, so he'll set you right.

You shouldn't have a problem but it just depends how much of a trunk you want to have left. I was planning on making a box for a single 15 fi btl but I decided against it because I needed more trunk space so I went with two 12 inch Alpine Type R's instead.

Well I already did the quality isn't bad almost everyone uses passive convertors but if you want something better try an active convertor.

There is one on ebay for $129 btw

Don't fret, he clearly doesn't care about sound quality - or about the drivability of his car.

Sure - but he spent way too much money - he could have had a Honda instead.

The Civic electrics are much more forgiving. This will be a nightmare on wheels.

You clearly want a loud bandpass box. My electrical is more than sufficient for that amplifier ! Actually it seems that i care much more about sound quality than you do....why give incorrect information about the drive ability of the car ?

Spent too much money ? I think too much is spending the extra amount on a sports car that is all wheel drive... The e92 has a 185a alternator you obviously have no knowledge of this...
