So from a purely monetary standpoint, not worth it. But not only will it help to increase spl by allowing the air to escape quicker due to the decrease in surface friction aka smoother surface, it'll also decrease resonance like he said and ensure your box is completely sealed and leak free. So from that standpoint, very worth it.
Great. Thank you again. You've been a tremendous help. I don't know how much I could possibly thank you for putting up with me. Sorry for being such a P.I.T.A. though :/. lol. I think I'm done asking questions for now. But I will ask a few more after I place the orders if that'* alright with you.

I have yet to order anything yet. I've been having some hard times. I'm basically unemployed right now and I'm trying to live off of less than $90 a week that I'm getting from unemployment. Which is not easy when you're 20 with your own car that you pay for plus the insurance, plus gas, plus going out with my friends. I'm going through some hard times right now and hopefully I'll get back on my feet soon. I've resorted to selling my own personal belongings to get some money flow. Next up is my Xbox 360 Elite that I've played literally 4 times in a year. haha.

If I were unemployed and had bills like you, I'm not too sure "going out with my friends" would be one of them, especially if I'm only bringing in $90 a week!

well I mean I don't "go out". I'm not like most kids 20 year olds. I don't do clubs or anything. Lol. We mostly just hang around or in one of my friends houses. I mean, White Castle is one of my "expenses" and pool is another. But I don't do both all of the time. lol. Plus, pool is only $5. lol. I need a new job and soon. :/

Hey Monte. Long time no talk. I'm about to order the subs from Amazon. I don't remember if we talked about the SA-12 D2'* or SA-12 D4'* paired with the Audio Que AQ1200. The D2'* have Dual 2-Ohm and the D4'* have Dual 4-Ohm'*. Which subs does the AQ1200 pair with? I want to start ordering them in the next 2 or 3 days. Let me know.

You'd want the D4'*, that way you can wire them down to 1 ohm so you can get the full power from the AQ1200.

You're positive about this right? I actually put the D2'* in my cart. I want to be 100% sure. lol. What kind of wiring would I need so I can order that as well. If you can, can you possibly give me a list of things I'd need. I'm going to get the box custom built.

No, just guessing Of course i'm sure, I've only been doing car audio for 19yrs. With a pair of dual 2'* your final ohm loads will either be 2 ohms or .5 ohm, with a pair of dual 4'* you loads will be either 4 ohms or 1 ohm. This is how:


Dual-6 Ohm Subwoofers: 6 Ohms
Dual-4 Ohm Subwoofer: 4 Ohms
Dual-2 Ohm Subwoofer: 2 Ohms
Dual-1.5 Ohm Subwoofer: 1.5 Ohms

Dual-6 Ohm Subwoofers: 1.5 Ohms
Dual-4 Ohm Subwoofers: 1 Ohm
Dual-2 Ohm Subwoofers: 0.5 Ohm
Dual-1.5 Ohm Subwoofer: 0.38 Ohms

If stock deck, you'd need a line out converter, a 0ga. amp kit, rca'* (if not included in the amp kit) and some speaker wire (12ga. would be fine)

If aftermarket deck, same as above just without the line out converter.

My apologies. I didn't mean to offend I just wanted to be absolutely positive. haha. Thank you very very much. I'll post back when I receive my first sub.
