    What if you put a pb2+ in a SUV...?

    You guys are measuring 116db peaks in a room...what about a expedition or even a focus if you could fit it

    It probably would not do as well as you would think. You are putting a box inside a box. The results will be very unpredictable.

    The big issue would be powering it. The car's electrical system wouldn't be able to handle the load from the amp.

    Hey John, there are single 12" woofs in decent sized enclosures hitting 150db.+ with only 400 watts these days.

    The PB2 is optimized for rooms, not cars. Car subs rely on the small volume of air inside the vehicle to reach high SPLs (or low extension). For example, I could take an Adire Shiva and place it in a 1.5 cu.ft enclosure and it would sound fairly decent in a car. In a HT it would be a boomy mess (in a larger enclosure it would sound great).

    I'm sure you could reduce the enclosure size of the PB2 (and change the porting) and end up with a nice car sub. This is assuming that the drivers can handle the conditions inside a vehicle (dirt, moisture, etc.). However, it would be cheaper to buy 2 Adire Brahmas and a 1.5kW amp and blow out your vehicle's windows...
