And runs off 120 volts versus a measly 12 volt car voltage. Thats why car audio runs such higher watts than pro audio ..... Im sure your 300 watt bass rig was very loud!!
Also, sub bass in a vehicle typically operate in lower frequencies than pro audio bass rigs.
18hz - 80 hz is common in car audio
50-400hz is commen in bass guitar rigs. A low "E" aint very low on a bass guitar
Hell, even a low "B" isnt too low. Higher frequencies seem to listen louder to our ears. Where 22hz you can barely "hear", but rather "feel"

I agree. A good 10, with a great box, powered by good clean, strong powerful amp would be plenty for our trucks!
But more bass is more fun lol
You can always turn your bass levels down
Thanks for the input!
