    Help me choose the best sub...for me

    My amp has the following stats:
    RMS Power Output: 90W x 2 @ 2 Ohm
    Peak Power Output: 180W x 2 @ 2 Ohm
    Birdged Output: 400W x 1 @ 4 Ohm

    I need to find a good sub to match
    1. I want as small a box as possible
    2. should I go with one 8's, 10's, or 12's?
    3. 2 subs or 1?
    4. I listen mostly to bass heavy music (rap, reggae) but I still want clean bass
    5. I want to spend under $100 (for just the sub)

    look into re subs. they're inexpensive and along the lines of what you're looking for.

    You can get two 10 inch Infinity subs from Crutchfield for $90. I think the 12" are only a little more. Great deal if you ask me.

    I'd recommend the RE RE's also.... but really you need more power!!!!! That is not a whole lot of power for a dual woofer setup... You may want to think about the 1 woofer route at 180watts at 4 ohms bridged!

    You're bumping this after a year?? You never bought a sub?

    Re: Help me choose the best sub...for me

    I had other obligations that were more important that getting the sub. Rather than start a new thread, I figured it'd be better to reply in this one.

    I'm actually going with just 1 sub, and here's the working link
