    Under $100 altogether?
    Kicker has a sale on their comp subs right now, buy one get one free. You might see if a local dealer could just sell you one at half price, so that would be like $50 for a 12". Then, pick up a Profile amp for around $50.......Should be much better than the Dual crap.

    ^ False advertising;
    Blaupunkt's PC series subwoofers are designed to deliver rich sounding bass at all volume levels
    by the way, I have a Dual amp installed until I can get my Brutus fixed / replaced; It's not too bad. Cheap on the inside, but is working fine.

    Re: dual brand subwoofers?

    yea that looks good , appreciate that, but with shippin its 40 bucks and id still have to buy a amp, (im talkin about the blankput sub)

    would one be satisfactory? i was really lookin for 2 subs and a amp combo ,

    would this one sub compare to two "dual" subs?



    is there any online shop i can look at that kicker deal? the audio shops around here are ghetto and ****** id rather buy online since its usually cheaper

    Stupid young potheads

    Buy an O of herb and toss it, pick up a hundred bucks extra for the system plus smoke what you want - then spend that 200 dollars on the system and be 3x happier, how's that?

    I like the Kicker Comp idea...and if you're going with some prefab crap, there used to be(not sure if there is anymore) two mtx 12's sealed on a little 200 or 300 w amp, I'd much rather have those than the duals, I think they're around 175 shipped?

    Youd be much better off upping the budget a little. To still stay pretty cheap, just get a pair of the comps, and a Hifonics Brutus 600.1 or something like that.

    Re: dual brand subwoofers?

    how long is this deal gonna last? because i need to know if i should borrow money to buy them now or wait until payday


    also it says its a marine subwoofer? does that make a difference? and will these subs hold up to daily use?

    Look at Profile amps for cheap power. Or you could try to find a JBL 300.1 or a Brutus 500 or something. Profile would probably be the cheapest route to go, just find something that does in the range of 250-350 and youll be set.

    Re: dual brand subwoofers?

    ok ill prolly pick up a profile amp, it wont destroy my subs tho will it? i heard cheap amps are what usually destroy subs, and will these hold up to daily abuse? or will they fall apart in a few months

    and kinda a stupid question, if im underpowering these subs (which i most likely will) then it would be almost impossible for me to blow them right? since there not gettin eough power i could turn it up all the way with nothing to worry about?

    also im buying the subs off crutchfield which is chargin me

    Merchandise Subtotal $89.99
    Standard Shipping
    Other shipping options
    $5.99
    Order Total $95.98

    is that a good price or can i get them cheaper off another website?
