    the right amp for sub

    found a sub that is DVC 4-ohm rated 350W/rms. and a mono amp that is rated 450W @ 4-ohm and 900W @ 2-ohm. should i be looking for an amp that is 350W or lower at the 2-ohm load or just the same sub that is DVC 2-ohm?

    Re: the right amp for sub

    well lets put it this way. the amp i'm lookin at is $100 and the sub is $60-$70. this is going in a 2002 s-10 regular(single) cab. so i have VERY limited space. i want to stick with a single sub setup most likely 10". but i really dont want to go with any of the shallow mount subs. but yea, not much space and not much money to work with. i'm ok with it being cheap i know i won't get much. somethin's better than nothin'.

    Re: the right amp for sub

    Gonna be nearly impossible to buy anything worth having with that kind of money, dude. If you had $200-ish you could get this stuff.

    subs - RWE-204 - MB Quart 8" 300 Watt DVC Subwoofer (2 of those)
    amp - MB Quart DSC 500.1 500W RMS Monoblock Discus Series Amplifier w/ Remote Bass Level Control

    This is another option, and it's a little cheaper.

    sub - REF-TM12.2 - 12" Tidal Audio Subwoofer Dual 2 Ohm OEM by Image Dynamics
    amp - DSC-280 - MB QUART DSC-280 2CH CAR AMPLIFIER CAR AMP DSC280 - UGotADeal.com

    Like I said, you're going to need to put back a few more dollars if you want to buy anything even remotely decent...unless you're willing to buy used stuff on craigslist or the classifieds...

    Re: the right amp for sub

    if you wire that MBQ down to 1ohm on that MBQ amp, you would need to be careful with the gain. That would be a decent setup for entry level, but not much more. If you just wish to add some semblance of bass to your truck, it will do the trick

    In a good box it will probley sound clean. It likely will not be over 132-133db, but its would be enough to satisfy the bass requirement of music. There is nothing wrong with that equipment if your on a tight budget
