    I need some advice on selecting subs

    Right now I have a 1000w rms class D rockford fosgate amp but I have no clue what speakers to get. I want 2 12's and they'll be going into a 95 M3. My budget is somewhere around $400 a sub. I have thought about going to a single sub but I want my sytem to be loud, real loud and have good sound quality

    Have you ever thought about just going with a single sub setup?

    What are you looking for SQ or SPL?

    How about some of THESE ?

    The 15's should fit you nicely, 500w per sub will really get them moving.

    Re: I need some advice on selecting subs

    I was thinking about Rockford Fosgate, Jbl or something like that but I figured that I would come here first. And the reason I got an amp already is because I had a couple frosgates before and they put out very clean bass even though they get quite hot and the one I have has a fan and other than that they are good amps.

    Just pick out of this list, any of these will do what you need and work with your amp-
    JL audio 12w6 v2
    Eclipse SW7100 alum.
    Alpine type R
    Kicker L5
    MTX thunder 7500
    Diamond audio D6
    Soundsplinter RL-P
    OZ matrix elite
    Rockford Fosgate T1

    Just find the one that looks the nicest to you, they all sound great and will get plenty loud when installed correctly.
