8s hit really high frequency bass. i have never heard 2 8's in real life with this setup. I have seen the 1 10" but that takes a little creativity by creating your own box, i havnt seen a q-logic box modified to fit one 10, but i have seen custom work to do this.Thanks, how do two 8s sound bass wise? And i saw that someone modified the Q-Logic to fit one 10.
Yeah I listen to Country, Classic Rock, and modern rock 98% of the time and that setup would be perfect 98% of the time but when I'm in party mode at the beach or just headed to a party on a friday night with some friends I like to have the deep bass.My Sub system is 2-8's in the Q-logic haven't even had it a week yet...
I had to turn the gain down on my amp all the way because it was too loud and I needed some control to turn it down from the Head Unit, Yeah, I can't believe I am saying that. The Eclipse Head Unit I have is an 8 Volt output unit so that is part of it...
My system cranks with super tight bass. It is loud and clean and beyond my expectations for the dual 8's in the Q-logic. My sub amp is a TREO Engineering dedicated to the subs. I have 2 Rockford P2's, they just fit depth wise. Install a vertical brace in between the two woofers and a thin piece of Dynamat beneath the P2's magnets.
What it doesn't do is play the kind of sub-bass you can hear down the street and low frequency Hip-Hop Stuff, you will need more than a pair of 8's to do that.
To give you an idea of what works great in my setup, I listen to RUSH, ACDC, Skynrd, Outlaws, Metallica (old stuff), Nirvana, Floyd, Van Halen (old stuff)Megadeth and many of 70's and 80's hard rock stuff.
Hope this helps
A lot of guys...ahem...members here say they sound great.
I think the amp you select and the efficiency of the subs make the system; as well as, the adapter you select to splice into the factury wires.
Some of the adapters allow you to "dial in" the voltage feeding the amp, optimising the sound (in theory at this point in my research).
I had (2) 8" bazooka tubes in my last 3 trucks, and like the sound of the efficient 8's. I pushed them hard with an alpine MRV-f450 (If my memory serves correct) Not insane power, but crystal clear and powerful enough to play the music with a little "Drive".
Keep in mind that I play Rock, Metal, country and even classical...not the Boom Boom crap.
1-sony 10 or 2 mtx 10's
The amps I have to choose from are:
cheap 1600 watt Pyle 4-channel amp, Power Acustic fire&ice 400 watt 2-channel amp,
There is no doubt that those are great sounding subs but I am not looking at spending any money on speakers. I admite the sony sub is not a high quallity woofer and neither are the Mtx's but I have to say that the mtx's sound dang good it the box I have them in now. They can be loud enough to satisfy me, hit hard enough to make me feel like I am standing infront of a wall of concert speakers, and have tight controlled bass for my rock music. I really like mtx's, they aren't the cheep one's just middle of the road and they have lasted me for about 5 years now.Those wouldnt be worth anything if given for free (or paid to use them for that matter) The PPI or Zapco amps are great amps, if they match to power ratings to the woofer. What are the model #s? I can tell you if they would be any good for running subs. As for the pyle, power acoustic, throw them away, please. And dont settle for crappy poopy sound from sony or mtx subs. Check Image Dynamics, Mach5 audio, Elemental Designs, tc-sounds for some much much much better options. Sony and mtx are known for rotten sound in subs (and not much else for that matter). If you are going for under the seat, Elemental Designs has a slim 10 called the SQ10 that is 3" mounting depth with the same sound as a normal 10" sub.
Here is a great 10" sub TC Sounds (dB-500)
Here is the slim 10" Elemental Designs
Please please just dont choose junk, it will sound like well, junk
Yeah the PPI's and the zapco's are 8 or 9 years old but they are way better quality than the pyle and power acoustic. They were in a 97 eagle talon when I bought it. The guy that sold me the car didn't know anything about the system and he said it wasn't working when I bought it. He also said that in 98 he paid $3,000 for the whole setup. I thought he was full of sh** but when I took it buy to my local car stereo ship to show my friends they said that the PPI's were top of the line in 98 as well as the MB quart components. They said that zapco was good but not the best in 98 and the sony cd player that was in the car probably cost 300 or 400$ back then.Well, the thing is, the subs I listed arent much money. I thought you were buying subs. And the PPI amp does not have to be a "sub" amp, it just has to have enough power to run things. As for the Zapco, it may only be 400w, but I bet that it actually puts out 400w, not the ovverrated number like the PowerAcoustic and especially the pyle.
What CDT subs are you using? I'm very impressed with my EF-61CFi's and want to try out their subs. Also wheres the best place to purchase them at and how much ? Thanks !I completed the install in my 06 Tundra Access Cab just before the USACi finals last year. (I needed something to listen to on the drive up there to judge!!) After a ton of research, lots of time staring at the back of the truck and many beers, I ended up using the Q-Logic (my first pre-fabbed box) and 2 CDT 8’s. The cost of the Q-Logic vs how much time it would take me to do something custom swayed me in the Q-Logic direction. For power, I’m running an Alpine PDX-1.1000 on the subs. I modded the box with 2 layers of RAAMat as well as jute to kill any low freq vibration and also kill standing waves. I also had to mod the enclosure slightly to get all of the bolts to fit (that topic has been discussed 100’s of times on this board). The install took probably 20 minutes after I also modded the connector that the wires terminate to. I took the cup out, made a plate out of ¼” ABS and ran the wires through the plate and sealed it just like you would in a regular box
