My budget is around 700. I'm not looking for a really sweet system to start out with, just something to bump. Oh and by the way. My mom sold my Bonne!

1st, the bandpass shouldnt decrease power handling THAT much.... I think
2nd, I run 4oo watts RMS to0 much on my Comp VRs and they act like they can take more...
hmmm... his MTX 12'* are rated @ 250 RMS each, but I know that his gain was only half-3/4 up.
-no warranty for him haha
But anyway, you can get whatever you want, I was just stating my opinon based on experience and all the factors.
- BTW he had a Autotek SX-23oo @ 2 ohms [8oox1], on two MTX 6ooos[5ooRMS] in a bandpass box from Circut City or somewhere like that.

Not all amps are created equal either. A rockford or JBL amp will always be underrated, and things that are no name stuff will always be over rated.

Dont get a universal box that you buy from Circuit city, Best buy, Q-logic & so on. If you get a box that is specifically made for that sub & you can make it pound. I dont think the box design effects the power of the sub.

TiMSmo0th got a ?
Did your friends subs handle 500 watts rms(MTX 8000) each, Or he had two 6000'*.

Box designs do affect subs, if they are perfectly square they will have A LOT of standing waves inside them, and this will cancel out a lot of sound. A sealed box can pount very nicely, if it'* the exact size, and a decent shape.

A rule of thumb for rectangular boxes, don't have all the sides the same size.

If you are fabricating a box for duals, make sure you have the right amount of space, they don't have to be sealed off from eachother, if they are run off the same channel, but ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS make sure they are the same polarity. If one hits and one pulls you get next to nothing out of them. If anyone needs anything else on fabricating, just holla back yo.
