    Sorry for that. I just had to! What size are you looking to go? I recommend JL Audio. I used to run four twelves when I was younger. I've long since grown out of that stage in my life.

    The W0 models are pretty inexpensive and provide a good bang for the buck. Real clean sounding, but that also depends on the enclosure.

    Well define "really expensive". I think the W0's are maybe $150 a piece? JL Audio is quality, however. Just like mama used to say, "you get what you pay for." Still true to this day!

    Oh, and I would go with 12" and a sealed enclosure. Best all around size, IMO, and bass will be nice and tight, not loose and floppy. Good Q.

    Well honestly JL Audio is a fantastic company but there are alternatives when it comes to SUBS. It all depends on the entire sound system pretty much. The BEST sub can sound like dog poop in the wrong enclosure. As goes for the power and RMS rating of the amplifier, what impedence is the sub rated at. Is the Head Unit aftermarket or is it stock with a RCA splitter box (HIGHLY NOT RECOMENDED!) they cause distortion and sound crackle. What type of music will you mostly be listening to, is there some type of crossover for the sub so that the high frequencies are not being played through the sub. There are lots of things to think about when it comes to Audio, its not just "Hmmm I would like a Sub in the trunk." Lots of companies out there with very good quality products for cheap. If you match things up properly you can piece together a very nice setup for very little money. AUDIOBAHN, MTX, MA Audio, Infinity, JL Audio, Memphis Audio..... the list goes on and on. If you need some help let me know. Just PM me and Ill try my best.

    it really depends on what kinda sound your looking for. a good quality bass enhancment or truck rattling roof flexing bass.. and well your sub is only as good as your amp and your amp is only as good as your source unit . so you really need to ask yourself what you want to get out of it, then depneding on what you want i can give you pointers.( car audio is my 100% bread n butter)

    o ok.. well JL is nice stuff but your buying the name. there are plenty of underground companys that offer much better subs at better prices. but JL is a safe bet but deff wouldnt be my choice. look into RE Resident engineering, elemental designs. but w/e you do if your looking for suprior sound quality get a sub with a plexy dust cover, in my opinion you will get a cleaner sound.. but if u go with one RE SE 10" or 12" in a Quality ported box on a nice amp you will get way more bang for your buck than a all JL setup.. hope i can help

    koturbo..... guess you really didnt read anything I had posted above. I wrote the exact same thing. Good info but a day late... I have never heard of the company you were talking about. When did this come on the market. I used to compete in SPL Drags like in 1997 for a few years and then rules started to change to much for me to invest that much money in changing everything I had already built. But yeah +1 on all you said, since it was the same thing I said...HA HA HA!

    i have one kicker l7 and it does the trick for me. I got a remote bass control for it and if I want to turn it down i can or blow my ears out i can with the twist of a nob. I got it brand new off ebay for 200 bucks along with a kicker am for 200 bucks. I would say it does not matter what kind of sub you get its the amp that matters trust me on this one.

    Running 2 Boston Acoustic G-510-44 (something like that), they are nice solid sounding subs. Crutchfield had a good deal on them, buy one get one a while back. I like that they have interchangable parts just in case you break one. They also have 2 different settings for the voice coils set just by moving the on board fuses.
