Good Cheap Sub and Amp????
Any one know were to find a nice 10inch that bumps. And amp? Please let me know a good combo guys
few hundred just depnds on the set up
Two MBQuart 12" subs: http://woofersetc.com/index.cfm?fuse...roduct_ID=3415
And an amp to supply them with close to 500 watts RMS at 1 2 ohms
Here's what I found on a quick look: http://www.woofersetc.com/index.cfm?...roduct_ID=5674
Get anything less and you'll likely regret it.
any of those amps
and for the sub:
depending on the amp/money/what you listen to they'll do well
since you said bumps i'm going to assume you want loud bass and like rap music
the SSD or BL would work great in those cases
if you like very accurate bass like classic rock you would do well with the Q and probably be fine with the SSD as well.
This is just stuff I threw out more or less off the top of my head, post what kind of music you listen to and what you want out of a sub/why you want one (do you have any other audio upgrades) and you can get some more help.
Well I just installed a pair of Kenwoods 3011 12 inch subs with a 7204 amp. These bad boys hit HARD..
The subs were on sale for 43.00 each. I got the amp for 99.00.
Subs: 86.00 (free shipping)
Amp: 99.00 + 7.00 shipping
no matter what your looking at around 250 for parts and install. not bad as i had 2 12's and a 600w amp which cost me around 600
The JBL GTO series are probably one of the best "budget" subwoofers, well under $100 on ebay and they perform very well too. I like their amps also.
I saw a Phoenix Gold RSD sub recently real cheap, can't remember where off the top of my head though.
NO. EXACT set-up I had and it's GARBAGE. They're extreme peaky, play blisteringly loud at high (50+ hz) frequencies and offer next to no performance under about 40hz. There were songs with bass lines I could hear on my $80 logitech 5.1 speaker system for my computer but some notes were missed on the subs. These were being run off a PAC C2A-CHY 3 which provides the amp with a completely clean signal. Also, they were in a box offering each sub 1.65 cubes ported at 35hz, which is exactly what Kenwood recommended, if not a little more towards the lower (frequency-wise) end of the spectrum. I just got some Memphis Power Reference 12's today (DVC 4 ohm) and was able to wire them down to 2 ohms on each channel of my 7204 amp (the amp is alright, despite the fact that it gets a toasty a little quicker than it ought to). The Memphis subs hit 150% as hard as my Kenwoods did above 50hz and very modestly speaking 300% as hard under 40hz. The Kenwoods are crap; the drivers for the speakers are better suited to be mid-bass drivers. I can provide you with multiple articles about how bad they are.

I had the chto01 harness and that was crap. How was you amp hook-up.. I have my amp connected directly to my hu via. The crossover level on the amp is off. I have sub controls on my headunit. Also kenwood subs have never been that good with ported boxes. My box is sealed at 1.3 cubic per sub. The box is also firing toward the cabin.

Getting a clean signal from the stock MyGig with the PAC plug-and-play amp addition harness. The subs aren't good in any box; they're too peaky. Like I said, they're better suited as midbass drivers.

I also used to have a pair of these subs. Hit very hard and sound very good for their price. Only thing I didn't like about them is they had trouble with extremely low bass. If you put these in a sealed box, I'd recommend 200-250 watts RMS each. Had an amp giving them 150 each, this is supposed to be their max, and then later heard them with a more powerful amp and it made a HUGE difference. Highly recommend them if you're looking for a very budget setup.

I have a sealed box right now, but am going to be putting ports in them as soon as I can figure out how to cut a 3.12" hole and which way to face the ports... Here is a picture of my box... I have the subs facing down so if someone were to look in the vehicle, it wouldn't look like anything was there... The box is 2.1 cu/ft and SOLID...
