    I'm willing to spend more but not break the bank over it. I could probably throw a few hundred more into the bank if it makes sense. What do you suggest?

    You didn't list any prices. Give us a number for a total budget.

    Yep. Without the budget there's not much we can recommend.

    1000 bucks is a pretty decent budget if you've already got the head unit. Let's see what I can figure out.

    1000 is a lot of money if you want just subs of rms 400watts, look at the 600watt range subwoofers like Skar, sundown, ssa, etc..

    look at this store you cannot go wrong on any sub here

    Sub Woofers - SSA STORE
