Its more important to cover 25-80hz while remaining flat as possible than post up any number.

What do you plan to run?
And also, loudness is subjective.
Decible scores are objective.
You can have a loud sounding system amd not post high number.
You can also post impressive numbers with a system that isnt neccesarly that loud.

I am trying to be as loud as possible from 25-80hz while still sounding good.

Pretty excellent setup there... My setup planned will be only ~149db and also maintains excellent sound quality.
Heck if my setup only hit 135db it wouldnt matter much, but it will sound loud as heck!

Well I ran an 8" with 500 watts and asked people to guess what I had.
The guesses ranged from a 12" on 800 watts to two twelves on 2000 watts.
I took it to a custom car/car audio place nearby and had a guy with 15 plus years of car audio(he has a wall of sq and spl trophys) check it out and he was impressed how loud it was. The look on his face said far more than anuthing else.
That setup would only register in the upper 120s but was louder than most peoples setups with double to cone areA and power.

Your setup is def going to sou.d loud and refister a high score for sure, but my shit wont be any snooze fest ;) thats all im saying.

*i apologize for the typos

Ok Ford, Aslong as it aint a snoozefest thats what matters ... personally I love T-line enclosures but for the sponsorship I have to maintain, I need to score well . Only type of processing I use is a Clarion 7 band eq with a 5volt line driver
