Anyone running Fi or RE in their Camaro?

Pretty much decided the brand, just debating between 2 10's or 2 12's.

"The BL Series fills the gap between the all out SPL monster and a solid daily driver. Featuring a chamfered solid pole piece and standard double stack motor structure with 8.660" magnets as the foundation for a truly tough subwoofer, you can choose from a variety of options to custom tailor the sub for your exact application. With the addition of the hyper chamfer, or our patent pending heli-cooling channels along with the Daily option, you can bump up the subs thermal capacity for long term daily driving abuse. Looking for an ultra tough SPL sub? Choose the SPL option, one of the 8 layer aluminum flatwind voicecoils, add power, and let it rip. With head cracking upper bass and brutal low end, the BL handles the extremes with ease."



I have this amp and may try to use it with the 2:

Wondering if it will fit though! The amp is huge. It powered my 18" RE XXX. Not even sure it can run 2 subs being it's a class-D/mono amp. Not too 'literate' when it comes to electrical wiring.


I have no spare, so trunk space is wide open. I hear a lot about subthump - is that a website, a specific person, a group of people? I hear they build custom boxes - who can I contact about the above build?

Also, if anyone currently runs RE or FI, would love to see a vid or pics.

I went with a subthump box for my 2012 and it fit great. I installed 2 12s. I heard you can run two subs with a mono amp, but I went with a 2 channel because I understood that enough to wire it myself. Attached a picture of my 2 12 rear firinf box that I got from su thump. You can get it in circles or squares and 10s or 12s, as well as feont diring or rear firing.

That amp can def run two subs. It's just a matter of matching up the power of the amp to the power the subs can handle. I will provide you a link for wiring that should show you the wiring layout regardless of the impedance (ohms) of your subs or the number of voice coils they have.

I have two of the FI 15" BTL's in my Tahoe and they are awesome. They'll do @ 150 db's even though they're underpowered (2500 watts to the subs).

Check the specs on the ones you are interested in though, a lot of them work best in large ported enclosures rather than sealed.

The flat wind V/C is a good option as it will make them more efficient.

FI also makes Ascendent Audio for some more options.
