    I like those but none for the 8" subs. I do like the Kicker grills though, but prefer the polished bars.

    Re: S10 cheap SG system

    That's phenomenal. I'd imagine it well over $1000 having a shop do that all for you.
    And I'm also looking for some grille covers, and am a fan of that Kicker design... So is it a safe bet that most subs have the same drill pattern? In that, I can buy whatever grille and its a good chance it'll fit my subs?

    Re: S10 cheap SG system

    So I have a question regarding the way I wired my subs up for the amp. The amp is a mono channel but has 2 speaker wire connections. I wired the subs each at 4 ohms. What is the amp seeing? Can I benefit anything by redoing the wiring?

    Re: S10 cheap SG system

    Wire at 2 ohms. Each sub will see 250wrms. Tune properly so you dont blow them. The other set of speaker wire inputs is just to simplify wiring for you. I would only use one set and wire like this:

    Re: S10 cheap SG system

    So I think it's time to upgrade my system. The subs sound good but fall short of what I want. Should I 1) rebuild the box and go ported or 2) step up to a single 12" and do a behind seat wedge box? It just doesn't have the deep bass I like and they run out of steam on up volumes. Ideas?

    Re: S10 cheap SG system

    bigger ported would be nice. Here is what i did with my S10
    A small "going active" build.
    I tried a couple 8's out and ended up with the sa8, for the ouput.

    Looking at your box, one sub takes up the whole cab. Not sure I could fit that in my cab.
