My fiance's dad's b-day is in like 3 weeks and I've been lazy on his couch watching movies all day and i noticed that he needs more bass. before you give me **** or wonder why i'm laying on his couch everyday for the past 3 weeks, it's b/c i can't work and my fiance works for her parents. I am thinking I'll get him a new h/t sub for his b-day just not sure what to get him. i know i got my jbl sub and love it but i bought it on accomodation pricing and it was cheap as hell that way. any help is appreciated.

i'm really just hoping that the website i use to buy jbl at accomodation is just messing up tonight. if that's the case i'll just buy him what i have as for 160 i doubt it can be beat.

When in doubt DIY, or at least buy from PE

Of course that JBL would be decent for 160+ ship

For $160, I doubt it.

Considering a decent plate amp will run in the neighborhood of $75-$100, plus the cost of wood and of course the driver...you're not going to be able to DIY much better :)

i was mainly looking if their were any other options. i mean i personally think jbl is **** good just most people stay away b/c the stuff that is any good is too expensive.

my car accident i had on june 20th. i can't walk or really do much of anything. no weight barring for 8-10 weeks and i most likely won't be 100% full weight through the year at worst.

ok i was wrong, i get the ps1400 for 760 not under 400 lol. it's a 1800 dollar sub though so not a bad price.

the same accident my friend. the injury was a dislocation fracture and my foot was angled out 38 degrees lol. basically in the x-ray there is about a 1.5" gap where my big toe and 1st toe should be but they aren't. i'm going to get x-ray's for here so i can show peeps as everybody thinks i'm just a ***** and a wimp.

dude READ! get outta my thread if you can't read.

How's he's suppose to know your limit or what you consider cheap? Maybe I'm just too tired, but I don't see a budget listed ;). Cheap to one is not always cheap to another ;).

If you're still looking maybe a used plate amp+atlas 15? Can be had for under $200.

I was waiting for someone to post an svs link ;). I've heard many great things about svs subs and I'm wanting to buy one for my home setup. The PB12–NSD/2 just has so many good reviews going for it. I want one now!!!!

what 2kchevy said...

or if you want to spend less, the entry-level PB10-NSD is $429+s/h

http://www.svsound.com

but it doesn't have entry-level performance. it rumbles all the way down to 20hz. it'll destroy anything anywhere near its price range :naughty:

cek out http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/forumdisplay.php?f=113 for reviews and comments on any of the SVS subs...it's the most read audio board i believe on the net
