    150rms sub?

    so I'm looking for a 150rms sub that runs at 4ohms. it will be hooked up to a rockford fosgate 4 channel running off 2 bridged channels. I can spend up to 100$ on the sub. though the only thing I can think of is a kicker comp. they sell one that is in a kicker made box for 120 and that's about the best thing I can find. RF has a sub but it doesnt seem better, do you guys know of any 150rms subs that would be better than the kicker? looking for a 10 or 12.
    the dc audio level 1 would of been perfect but it looks like they stop making it.

    Though i'm not a kicker fan, sonic has a deal where you can get 2 kickers for 100ish for that RMS range

    Re: 150rms sub?

    With trunk space I'm only looking for 1 sub. I just am worries it basically might **** and the range of the sub will be bad. could it do well in a custom ported box?
    also, I found a DLS W312D sub which runs off 150 rms but idk if that brand is good. any opinions or knowledge of it?

    Dcon? its rated for 300 but it should perform just fine off 150. its much more musical than kicker

    i've got a focal 12" sub that'll do well with that for $90 shipped.



    Here is my feedback Thread: http://www.caraudio.com/forum/showth...ght=fasfocus00

    Re: 150rms sub?

    sounds good but I'll have to pass on that. I don't wanna look at any 200-300rms subs. just 150 so I'm actually fully powering it.
    any knowledge of the DLS W312D? from what I read it seems really nice. but how good would a kicker comp in a custom ported box be?

    Re: 150rms sub?

    wow thanks! the element designs would be my first choice. I'll shoot for that sub. it's not a shallow mount is it?
    idk much about Boston acoustic but could u do me a favor and tell me what ur top 2 would be from that list besides the element designs.
    I listen to mostly indie music and some rap. I'll have someone build a custom box for me as well. probably sealed. I'm looking for mostly SQ and hopes I can hit lows at least better than in a prefab box.

    all sealed boxes are about the same tbh. you can buy a prefab sealed, put some liquid nails on the joints inside and you'll be fine. also, you wont get much lows out of a sealed box lol

    Re: 150rms sub?

    even though these are entry level subs not running a lot of power. will they be able to even hit semi low in a ported box?
