    Pair Lanzar MAXP104D 10" 2400W Peak 4 Ohm Max Series Car Audio Subwoofers Subs 068888877459 | eBay
    These would be a better sub CHEAP to buy if wanting to run @1ohm on that amp,CHEAP..These subs hit very hard, and last in a 1.4-1.6 cu ft ported box per sub..Make your ears rattle..Best bang for the buck,from my experience

    Meh, look at the classifieds and wait for a good deal to come up on quality equipment. I don't know anything about the sub mentioned above but I;m going to go out on a limb and say no. The AP15001D or the APSM will work well if you are on a budget. If your patient you can get a nice 12 or a set of 10s that will amaze you, all of your friends, and their mamas!

    Re: Best budget amp for the money?

    Ok so bringing this thread back to life....

    I really want to go for the JBL MS-12SD. There's a 4 ohm version, and a 2 ohm version of the sub apparently. Which should I buy?

    The Audiopipe APSM-1500's price is really close to the 1300. I might as well go for the 1500. Since the rating for it is 500W RMS @ 4 ohms, will I have problems pairing it with the above sub which handles 450W RMS?

    My car is already wired for a sub(previous owner). It has the ground cables, audio cable(red+white), blue wire going up to the stereo, and a red(power) cable going from the trunk to the battery. At the end of the red cable where the battery is, it ends with a fuse the owner bought. The cable reaches up to the battery(barely), but will I still need to buy like 6-10 inches more of power wire(going from the end of the fuse to the battery)? How can I even tell if the wire is good enough(or too good) to handle power needed? It's measured in gauges right? How do I tell what kind I have/need?

    I appreciate any advise and help. I'm solid on the equipment above unless one doesn't work with the other.

    I know I suggested a Audiopipe amp in my last post, but since that post, I have seen evidence that those amps are not very good, at all. The APSM 2000 was tested and shown to produce only 400 watts rms of unclipped power at 4ohms. I can only imagine what little clean power the smaller amps produce. If I were you and did not mind saving a few $$ for an amp capable of providing years of service, and clean rated output,look to the AQ1200D, American Bass VFL100.1, B2 Quota,etc. for good, solid budget amps.

    Id look into SoundStream Rubicon amps for this setup.Reasonably priced, and do rated on power,seems like the JBL sub is what you are set on.JBL have always been quality made products

    Re: Best budget amp for the money?

    your first step should be to figure out what wire you have and to learn what your doing. we can persuade you to buy decent stuff but if you set it up incorrectly it will not sound good. next step is will you be able to build a ported box? if not then go sealed.


    my guess is you have a cheapy 8 gauge kit from wallmart. Hifonics HFX12D4 (HFX12-D4) 12" Dual 4 ohm Car Subwoofer that sub with an amp to match wont stress the electical system in your car and if you learn to set your gains correctly will sound good in a prefab sealed box or sound VERY nice in a custom ported box.

    just my .02 cents. Just an FYI all of us on here do get a little short so dont take it personal. ALSO do it right the first time and read and search for your answers first.
