OK

A few questions:

1) How much are you paying for these Solo-Xs
2) What amp(s) are you going to be running them on?
3) What kind and type of box are you going to have them in? Because i don't see HOW you can get enough airspace for two solo-xs in an expedition. then again, you might be able to... but if you don't, they won't sound as good
4) These things eat up power... if you feed them each their RMS, you'll be giving out 10,000 Watts RMS... that'll destroy any electrical system, even an Expedition, so what are you going to do to run them? Getting extra alternator(s)? Some batteries?

well they cost 1200 each plus the discount the guy gave me and they are going in a like 10 cube box or something the installer knows im gettin a optima and then a alternator and eventually bigger amps because im only running 1500 to each but they had 1200 to the one in the store and it hit like a mofo plus all i had to pay is $2.94

OK, because 1200W is nothing, they can handle 5000W RMS (continuous)...

yeah, you'll need a massive alternator, possibly two, and you should get at least two yellow-tops

EDIT: I'm thinking, the Solo-X wasn't really meant to run in twos... i mean, really... it's meant to perform standalone...
i say rather than paying a lot for two of them, and then not pushing them with what they can take, rather just buy one, and then give it a perfect box, perfect power (amp), and it'll sound as good as two ;)

EDIT2: Actually, i'm just thinking... rather than getting these two Solo-Xs, why not pay the same you'd pay for one Solo-x, and instead get two 18" XXXs, or 15" Brahmas, or Jugs, or something.

in pairs, there's a lot of subs that together will easily "out-bass" a single Solo-X. and you'll probably come off a lot cheaper too.

that's just crazy though. i mean imagine how much they spent on the subs, boxes, alternators, caps, batteries, amps, and more. i'm guessing probably close to $15,000

Honestly, you guys all must be incredibly rich!

You are talking about products here whose performance to dollar ration is incredibly low. I would personally never use solox's or jbl crowns unless given to me in a sponsorship. The facto of the matter is that the retail value is so incredibly high that they are not worth it. For the same ammount of money, you could get FAAAAR better equipment. But hey, do what you want. Its not my money. If after buying all this, you still have some left over, PM me for my address ;) :biggrin:

yeha i agree with Jeremy. You know, a Solo-x really does hit hard, extremely hard, but if you're paying $1200 for it, for that price you could get two 18" XXXs, which would pound the SHIT out of one solo-x... and you'd still have a few hundred $$ left :uh:

you're spoiled. good for you. no one's "hating" on you, we're just saying that if we were going to spend that much money on subs, we definately wouldn't get Solo-Xs, because for the same price you can get a much better sub or combination of subs. just our opinion, and i'm sure you'll agree we're entitled to it.

good luck with the Solo-Xs
