    Orion Subs

    Hey, after searching for a while i have not found a whole lot on this site, or many other sites on Orion subwoofer reviews. I am considering purchasing a set of 12" Orion Subs, fiberglass vented box (http://www.orioncaraudio.com/subwoof...enclosures.asp) I just want to know if anyone has experience with these subs (these are their HP-series subs http://www.orioncaraudio.com/subwoof...b_p_series.asp 12" 4ohm ) and if they are worth it? I am getting a good deal on these, $300 for the subs and box. Right away i do not think I can get an amp to power this 2000w set up fully. So is there an amp for under $300, preferably $250 or under that i could get that will be sufficient for now? I was looking at an Alpine 650w, but would a 450w do for now and then add another one, or upgrade later? Thanks for the help

    1st off dont go by max ratings on the subs as to what amp to buy. I have no experince with orion woofers but you could probably do better for the money. there are tons of amps on the forum here that would put out decent power for a good price.



    HU:Kenwood Excelon KDC-889
    Speakers: CDT 61A's with rainbow x-overs
    Front amp: Autotek MM100.4
    Sub amp: (2) Audiopipe 1500's
    Subwoofers: (4) 15" Crunch GPV
    Box: 16 cubes tuned to 28hz (removable port)
    Extra Batt: C&D 139AH
    151.xx sealed up 154.xx in the kick
