I am new to the car scene, and I am starting to move up in the ranks a little bit.
I got a PUNCH 250 watt 2 channel amp (the older ones, like aII or something like that)and a HELLA NICE concert style, all blakc fiberglass box that pounds like a mofo.
The port is monsterous, nearly the size (height) of the whole box and about 3'' across. It made my Audiobahn 1251 (a lower level sub, according to what I have been looking at) sound like a winner. I got it for $55 shipped, so it works ok for me.
Now I am looking into upgrading. My local shop sells JL, MTX, Kicker, Alpine, RF, and Eclipse, at right below retail. I am looking to spend around 250 tops on a new sub to use with this amp/box setup. Their prices include install and most have a 2 year, over the counter warrenty.
I could go over the net if a deal REALLY strikes my eye, but that warranty (no ? asked warranty, even blown) sounds awful good to me.
what does everyone suggest? I am either looking into a JL12W3 or an Alpine 12'' R series. I am looking at 12'' subs ONLY.
Thank you very much.
