Question Looking for a little more kick

Heres my situation. I have an 01 Ram quad cab that has a 10' rockford punch sub under the rear bench. THis sub is hooked up to a Kenwood kac-829 600wt amp bridged. Im looking for a bit more bass inside and outside, and iam wondering if a single 15 is feasible and would fit? I have no problem building a box but are there any 15s anyone would recommend that dont need a lot of airspace to make good bass? Any feedback/recommendations would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Ryan

I don't think you could get a 15" under there. Go for a shallow mount 12", many sub manufacturers make shallow mount subs.

The RE Audio SE Series 15" will work in as little as 1.5 cu sealed.

I dunno how much airspace you have to work with.

look at the mach 5 audio stuff.
cheap, loud, and really really good buy for the price.

also if your looking for a better cound outside the truck.
go for a sealed box as with ported boxes cancelation starts 1/4 of the wavelength from the port....i think i said that right....


ask sassmaster he was the first one to mention this to me...

you could always try a 12" they should kick fairly good outside..and up the power maybe something along the lines of a 500-700rms sub/amp combination. it would give a nice kick..

What is your max mounting depth? A maw 15" may be what you are looking for. Will work great at 2cf or more sealed. Even a bit under 2cf, if you really stuff the box.

If you're going to go through the trouble and expense of building another box etc etc etc... and chances are that if you go with a bigger sub you're going to see minimal results unless you use a bigger amp as well so why not just go with a 1000 watt sub and feed it with the same? You should notice a marked increase in bass from what you're running right now...
