    i have two subs (car subs)
    12 in. as i said early in a post it sounded awsome!
    with one 12.
    should i build a 2x12 cab or 2 12 cabs?
    i have a 410 and a 15 so no matter what it will be lighter and smaller than i have and i have no problem moving them.
    i plan on putting it with my 410.
    so what would sound better?

  3. You probably heard this before, but car subs don't make good bass guitar speakers. They EAT power, as they are incredibly inefficient.

    A car woofer may easily take 5-10 times the power to be as loud as a regular bass guitar cabinet.
