Went up to the Best Buy and listens to 2 10's, then 2 12's.

I didn't really notice a difference. Does one give better boom, etc??

The 12's should get louder. More cone area. As long as youre comparing subs of the same type (e.g. you cant put a Pyramid 12 up against a Digital Designs 12). But lets say you have a kicker comp vr 12 and a kicker comp vr 10. Powered off of the same amp, the 12 should be louder.

the difference between 10's and 12's are the 12's can hit the lower notes without using all that much power. plus they are a little cleaner in sound. just what i know. hope that helps

You really might not be able to tell the difference between subs in a store (big open room). The difference will be in the vehicle.

Bigger subs can go lower in tone (i.e. 15 lower than 10). but have a loss in puch/tighness.

Smaller subs can hit tighter tones more accuratly (i.e. 10 tighter than 15).

The above is just a genral idea, and every sub is different. So no bitching from the nit-pickers please. :biggrin:

the larger subs diplace more air and produces more spl. But the subs may not play as clearly or as tight when they get larger. But if you are using a good brand sub and not something from best buy there should not be very much of a change in sound quality with different sizes

inductance inductance inductance. forget cone size. cone speed is always limited by the inductance.
