    I see alot of new type speakers in the automotive field and has anybody had any experience with these so called high power heavy speakers they offer? I saw a massive 12" that was rated at 1000 watts just for example. Could these be used in a bass rig. There are monster 10" speakers and of course all the other sizes too rated way up there.

    Those are subwoofers. 500 hz and lower. Woofers suitable for bass rigs go to roughly 3.5k

    And most of those massive subwoofers are terribly inneffecient, meaning they aren't very loud, even with 1000 watts being pumped into them. They work well in small vehicles due to the help you get from cabin gain but wouldn't hardly be able to be heard in a typical club, church or concert hall.
