It will be very hard to find so stop doing it. If money is no issue then go for separate alternator setup with 16-18 volts line. Higher the voltage the amperage will reduce. So it the way to go.

I would advice to go for a smaller and cheaper car to sacrifice.

And in all in all I agree that you have no budget limit but still there must be a figure that you have considered.

Following needs to be done to provide the amp with 14.4 volts contantly

1) High output alternator
2) Better battery
3) Better cables


Any thing more to add?

If you're really looking to go nuts, find someone who has the know how to retrofit and aftermarket alternator. I am sure one of Auto gurus would know someone up to the task. You wont get an alternator that will deliver 1000A etc, but atleast a performance alternator will top up a bank of batteries sooner.

Like LBM mentioned, get a hatch for the job, ideally. Or some other single compartment vehicle.

Get the wall right behind first row seating. If you can, do dual 18s ported.

You have to look at some serious reinforcement. I wouldnt call it damping. That's too tame.

Also try running amps at 16-18V. Nowadays there are a lot of amps designed to work at these voltages and give significantly higher output.

Forgot to add last time. You will be needing 2 volts or 4 volts battery connected in series to get 16-18 volts. Normal 12 volt high performance battery will not be sufficient.

Normal high out put will not be enough for the job, A 16- 18 volts will be required, For cables you can save a little money here by using Finolex !!!!

I thought he will save a little more for the other stuff. Waise Finolex make sizes more than 125 mmsq. More than one require.

hmm...you probably saying this as i mentioned that i have no constraints to budget..right?

Now here comes a little logic...

"Khulla budget" is a term two type of people can make
1) Ameer aadmi as you said
2) Financially broke dudes!!!

I purely fall in the second category, as i am going through a very very tough phase of carrier.....so now u know, why i dont have any budget constraints. Moreover discussing SPL relaxes me

Jab koi budget hi nahi hai, toh tension ki kya baat hai!! Haan per umeedey buland hai

So would really not mind increasing budget...

Was also thinking of DD9518 (18")....above DD9515 (15")

But DD says, 9518 with composite requires 8-10 c/f per woofer!! i means, 16-20 c/f for two woofer!! Looks like a tough space management for accent, even with rear seats removed.

Better option, remove the driver seat also and make it a "haath-gadi"

Feels like 9515 with composite cone OR 9518 regular should fit

If open for options then why not check the other ones...

Like Fi BTL 18 inches it will require 5-8 cuft per sub. So a 10 - 15 cuft in a car is easy. You can try GZ also they will require 4-6 cuft for playing good. Kicker SOLO X can be considered but it again requires a 10 cuft box.
