I just added a second sub and more power. I did this to have more bass and midbass presence but not to get louder. One sub sounded fine and had plenty of output but just wasn't blending properly. Now with two subs everything level matched properly. Its all in the tune and keeping the levels relatively close.

I've always had the opposite issue. 1 sub blends effortlessly an and 2 have to be tamed white a bit. I do prefer running 2 though and I like my bass curve slanted down from 25 to 80. 25hz is likely 6 db louder than 80hz in my truck.

Do you have a source for this "fact"? I'm not one to defend the Prius as I can't stand them but your "fact" is bs. Hybrids are more energy intensive to make but nowhere near the number you're citing and over the life of the vehicle still have a lower environmental impact than a conventional car.
Sure...but more than 1.

Hybrids are NOT the answer to environmental destruction.

I guess I should have clarified, do you have any evidence that isn't based on an article that was debunked over a decade ago?

I get 30 mpg highway with the 20 year old v8 in my car.

With my trailer my ford v8 gets like 12mpg in the city and never over 16. I put 35" tires on it and it wrecked my mpg

I usually get about 18 mpg mixed use. On long trips sometimes 22 mpg if lucky with the speed I use lol.

I just came across an article saying the Hyundai Ioniq currently has the highest gas mileage at 58 mpg, a little more than the Prius. I always thought the Prius was the highest. We can fit six 12" subs in the Ioniq!!

Heh you can't go anywhere around here without pulling a hill. Sometimes I wonder if the places I go you have to go uphill both ways like how the elders describe walking to school barefoot in the snow uphill both ways:laugh:

Since we've gotten WAY off topic I'll go ahead and put this here about a Prius me and dad saw. We were going to lunch one day and saw a Prius with the gas mileage in big letters on the back bumper. Something like 50mpg or more. He told me "there's someone who's having to justify driving a Prius by putting the gas mileage on the back bumper". One thing I have noticed is the Prius drivers around here are bad about holding up traffic. Guess they've taken the place of old Volvo drivers.

What part of Arkansas are you in? When I've driven through on the way to Texas, there's almost no hills. Unlike middle to north Alabama, where hills abound as far as the eye can see.

Just west of Little Rock right on the edge of the Ozarks. Drive all over West Little Rock where hills are plentiful. Now you go to other areas of Little Rock (mainly the hood) and it's flat as a pancake. Also drive up to Heber Springs a couple dozen times a year where it's hilly. But you're right, driving across the state via Memphis there really aren't any. My buddy pulled his 18.5' fiberglass bass boat with a 175hp on the back from Benton up to Tablerock Lake and got several more mpg coming back. Guess he was going downhill the whole way home, hehe. Between here and Missouri is where you get into the steep stuff.

Standing on top of Pinnacle gives you a good idea of how the land lays across the state. The range goes at a diagonal. I try to climb it once a week on average.

So given the ops question, what would sound better...two 500 watt subs or one sub rated for 1000 watts (same power)? Even consider the subs being same brand.

I'd choose the w3's because I've never really liked the w7 when I've heard it. Now the w6v2 I've always loved and have always liked the newest version of the w3 too.

I like the w7 for electronic music and the w6 fir everything else. The w7 has an unnatural sharpness to it in my opinion.
