Powering 2 se-15d4's

Postby 96Burb » Fri Aug 15, 2008 1:13 am

Hi I'm new to the forum and re audio. I just purchased 2 SE-15d4's I have an old autotek mean machine mx 2000, do you think it would do the job for powering them? I'm looking for SQ and the ability to get real loud if need be. The subs are going in the back of a 96 suburban so I have some room to work with for the enclosure. Any ideas on the enclosure design would be greatly appreciated.

Yep, it'll do. Should give 600 watts to each sub when wired in parallel, which IIRC is right at the RMS of those subs.

As for the enclosure, which is more important, SQ or SPL? A sealed box normally gives the best SQ, and with two 15's it should get loud enough for most people. Ported boxes will get louder and exaggerate the lowend a bit (30-40 hz).
