SE for Corolla?GIVE ADVICE!

Postby nikoskostaras » Thu May 15, 2008 3:42 am

Hello to everyone!
I have a question. I want to install 2 subs RE Audio SE15n (in ported 6,5 ft3 box) in my Toyota Corolla '99 (Sedan). It is a sedan. Will they hit good? Will they be a good choise? Can anyone give me some advice please. I want BASS in there...!
Thanks...!!!

What amp are you going to be using? Not that it really matters, give it some juice and see if you are happy with it.

yeah that should hit very hard. Are you sure you can fit that big of a box in there?

I have one Soundstorm 1200 watts RMS at 2 Ohms stable.

About the box....! It will fit very easy....

I'm just asking my self...! I now have an Ultimate KW1200 12'' 1000watts Rms and it sound veeeeeeerryyyyy good. Hardcore bass..., believe it! Will the two SE 15 play louder?

umm.......yes.

but you won't be able to use that amp. those RE SE's are 4 ohm DVC's, right? when you wire them together you'll only be able to get a 1 or 4 ohm load. Not the 2 ohms that your amp likes. so if you stay with that amp you'll have to wire the subs for 4 ohms and only get 600 watts out of the amp, or 300 per sub. I'd sell that amp and get another that puts out 1000+ watts at 1 ohm.

I will connect in parallel the 2 voice coils into each sub. So, each sub will have a 2 Ohms load now. Then I will connect the two (2 Ohms) woofer, seperatelly onto the amp (two + wires and two - wires connected to the + and - of the amp. Will'nt that work as 2 Oms?

If I put on my 2 Ohms Stable Amp, Woofers with 1 Ohm load what will it be...? Just for the knowlegde....

well I guess I should have asked how many channels the amp has? I assumed it was a mono amp but I guess it could just as easily be 2 channel. If it was 2 channel then yeah you could do what you said, hook one sub up to each channel. Each channel would then see 2 ohms.

but if you have a mono amp, hooking each sub up at 2 ohms to the amp would give the amp a 1 ohm overall load.

Thanks guys!
I t's a mono amp. I think I'll buy a Crunch GTR 2400D. It has a 1x1200 WRms at 1 Ohm stable...! I think that will do the job! What do you say about it?

(Last:Will the two SE15's play louder than the KW1200? ...If you can possibly know or imagine...)

Thanks...

Crunch wouldn't be my first choice of amp, but if you're in a money crunch I guess it'll do.

and yes, the two 15's will definitely be louder than the one 12. The cone area advantage that the 15's have is very large, and plus they're higher quality.
