ok, pretty soon im going to be ordering my Resonant Engineering subs. i was putting around on the website tonight, getting som specs, and saw the SE is rated at 350-600 watts RMS, where as the HC series is rated at 600-1200 RMS. im going to be running the subs off a Viper 1200.1 amp, and i was worried that might be pushing the SE's a bit close to their envelope. however, if i get the HC's, they only come in DVC 2 ohm, so i couldnt use that amp for them by itself for both subs (its not rated for 0.5 ohm stability). however, i could get 2 Viper amps and run one sub of each (its stable at 1 ohm, which a DVC 2 ohm could be wired in parallel to, i believe). i have no problem buying the amps to run the subs. however, the HC series requires a 1.6 ft^3 box PER SUB for ported applications, and i have no idea how to make a ported box on my own - i.e. do the calculations on actual size, port size and length, and tuning. im also afraid a box that large would not fit in the trunk of the car im doing the system in. ive got no problem in losing all the trunk space; however, i simply dont know if it will fit! the other problem is the alternator - its going to be stock till May, when ill be getting a 200 amp alt for my birthday. will it hold out till then under 2400 watts of power being drawn continously? so i need opinions on which subs to get, and help doing the calculations for the box. ive got until the end of january to decide, and ill be ordering sometime in february, but it would be nice to have everything laid out before hand, so i dont run into any more snags than necessary.
