Dual 4?

If you want longevity out of it I wouldn't go more than 7-800 rms @ 2 ohm (if dual 4)

I am so not very happy with the sound of the Pioneer 5x7's I just installed. I may need a better head unit to control my system better but it sounds like crap! and yes , all my +'s and -'s are right

How are you gonna put the sundown 12 in a single cab? Thought you were going with 8s?

Anyone into true sound quality versus just bass or being "loud" ?

I am. Working on my vocals. I still love my bass but am more impressed by clarity. Check out my friends at mclaren audio. They just built a sick demo vehicle that's loud and clear

I had a loud sub setup. Now I have 1 8 and I love the sound. Nothing is overpowering. Nice clean clear music
