Nice Rich. Gauge can be so hard to determine even having it your hand let alone a pic. And some manufacturers feed on that. A nice thick translucent insulation can make wire look alot fatter than it is.

True story. When I first seen it I thought it was 8ga. as well, we're all off by one size, pretty damn good if you ask me since we only had a picture to go off of

Woohoo! Now I have 3 DD'* at home!

Finally got my DD 2512 and man this thing looks serious. The cone is super stiff, high roll surround looks massive, the basket is sexy.....I can't wait to get this thing making some noise. But unfortunately, I have to. I need to replace my head unit due to a blown pico fuse, don't want to rig it up and not gonna open it up so it'* gotta go. I think i'm gonna get the Alpine CDA-117 and run it passive for now, then save up and get the Imprint system for it so I can run active again. I just need tunes man so as soon as I get the deck, it'* on!

Don't over power it, And don't beat the **** out of it right off the bat... Give it lots of air and it will treat you with lots of thump !!!

I set an Escalade on fire with 6 of those lol

The DD Amps are not the greatest

Dont overpower it? why do u say that? these things are rated for 750 rms, im gonna give it twice that. This sub should laugh at that much power, do u know something I dont? Yeah, this thing is pretty stiff so im definitely gonna take my time before i push it too hard. As for the box, im leaning towards 2 cubes tuned to about 38hz, what would u suggest and why?

Raptor.....going from a fi q to p3'*? Dont do it! Id take type r'* over those any day of the week. Those P3'* are horribly overpriced for whats under all that plastic shrouding.

Well, after talking to one of my boys who is a DD dealer in Central Cali I decided on a box design for my 2512



Anybody have any ideas/suggestions on that?
