Hey guys, I've been having a tough time deciding what subs I'm going to run in my new mustang. I've narrowed it down to a pair of ported 10's, but here is where i'm kinda stuck...

I have a hifonics bxi1610d, which people say should run close to rated but either way it's quite a bit of power... I will be pushing prob between 650-750 wrms to each sub. I would like a decent sub, but it seems like all the decent subs require about 1000-1500wrms each, which leaves me short. I could get some say re sex 10's which take 600wrms each, but I kinda wanted a little higher class sub.

I guess what Im getting at is: Does a sub rated for 600wrms generally play louder on 600wrms then a sub rated at 1000wrms playing on 600wrms?

I understand there is a huge difference from company to company in efficiency, I'm just looking for a general idea...

I just don't wanna buy the sex 10's, have them be not quite loud enough, and now I can't just add more power, I need to sell the subs and buy different subs too! But at the same time I don't wanna buy 1200wrms subs and not be able to power them enough for them to be loud!

Thanx guys!


BTW: They're going in a 2.5ft3 total ported box(after all displacements) so they'd each have about 1.25ft3

Higher rated subs generally have bigger heavier voice coils. This will naturally require more power to get as loud as a sub with less moving mass. I would say you'd be fine with the se(x) or maybe even the sr(x).
