    Tips; starting from scratch

    Ok, just got the new HU:


    After being totally jacked I am replacing everything again. I need to get away cheaply & get maybe half the power I had before (I had about 2,ooo watts before).


    I am debating on two 10" tubes. Any ideas anyone? Amps? What wattage? What speakers sound good in tubes if there is a difference. What is the most wattage I can get out of 10"s?

    Lets see

    For the money Profile amps are great. They put out exactly what they say and are a lot cheaper than any other amps of that quality. I've also asked the question about 10" bass tubes and a lot of people have told me to avoid them. I'm not sure why but thats what they've said. You will get a lot more volume and SQ out of a good ported box. I've also seen tubes that have built in amps but there is one drawback, THEY ARE A RIP-OFF. So dont go there. I'm not sure about the subs. But at least now you know about a good amp for cheap Profile. There website is Profileusa.com I think. Anyways check it out and see what you might want and then go to some online stores which are even cheaper and pick one up. I got a true 800watt profile amp off of ebay for $110 shipped to my door. Best $100 bucks I've ever spent. Hope I helped.

    Yeah, I am definitely on a budge & if I am lucky could be able to spend $100-$200 every two weeks.

    I am trying to get something that is snug in the back of my truck & hard to see. The last two boxes I had in my truck looked like I was carrying 2 computer boxes.

    Can 10" speakers do the job as far as getting the bass out?

    How about the EDk series? they have 10" subs for a good price right now. I like your choice of HU, i use pioneer too and i havent had a problem with it yet.

    This may sound stupid

    The best bass i've ever heard outta 10's blew away most 12's. It was a dual 10" Audiobahn in a Bandpass enlcosure yes I KNOW ABOUT BANDPASS and what most people think but for some music especially rap Bandpass can get it done. Here's a link just go to enclosures.

    They also have bass tubes if your still interested in that. As far as SQ Audiobahn has none but not many subs can go toe to toe with them in SPL. There is a dual 10" in a bandpass here at a local pawn shop for $150 bucks. Thats really cheap for two 10's and a box. So for like $270 you could have two 10's in a box with a nice profile amp.

    2 RE SE 10" and a JBL 1200.1, will be under $500, build your own nice small sealed box, about 2-2.5 cubes, will sound great and get loud.

    i agree profile amps - via ike sound (i have used the new model- i'm impressed).

    so you're thinking about 10s, well how about 1 10 ported?
    need specific examples of subs and amps ?

    Having installed three different Profile Clarus amps, I have this to say about them:

    * GREAT sound quality and clarity. Far above many higher priced amps.

    * Definitely puts out the full rated power.

    * Reliability is questionable. Of the three, one amp (CL600) went completely out after three months (possibly due to an underpowered alternator causing DC), one amp lost a channel (CL1200) under normal operation after six months, and one amp (CL440SX) is still going strong after a year.

    They are a great bang-for-the-buck amp and I would still recommend them to anyone on a budget, with the above cautions about reliability. I don't know what the margin of failure is for these amps, so it's entirely possible that the two failures were simply bad luck.

    For whatever it's worth, the most reliable amps I have installed personally are JBL (4) and Diamond (around 14-16 installs). ZERO failures from either brand so far!
