    12 sub with amp on a tight budget

    Hey,

    I'm really new with car audio and am currently learning a lot from this forum. You guys are great . I'm looking for a subwoofer set-up only, complete with box and amp. I'll also be getting it installed at best buy/circuit city/car toys/etc (any reccommendations?). Here's my budget:

    sub + box + amp + wires + installation = $700 max

    I have came up with many different combos, but have found faults with all of them. I'd like the subwoofer to be 12 inches and the box to be ported (SPL important for now). What do you guys suggest? Wires + installation will cost about $150, so that leaves me with $550 for sub, box, amp. Here are some combos I had:

    1) eD 13kv.2 + nine.2 amp + ported box tuned at 38Hz
    2) http://www.crutchfield.com/S-05oxNL...510&I=107DB2122 + Hifonics BXi 1206D

    I have a RSX Type S (hatchback), but I have limited space as well. What would be some good choices? Thanks!

    Re: 12 sub with amp on a tight budget

    Hmm..any other ideas? What would the price be for each of those?
    Also I was thinking about a 12 inch Type R. What would be a good amp to run those?

    screw best buy/circuit city! self installation! that would save you some money. unless you don't have a drill. do you care for SQ at all are do you just want a loud woofer?

    I really really want to learn how to install by myself, but my system (a propietary bose system in a 1000-mile car) seems too hard to match up with aftermarket subs. I'm also really busy with school so I won't have time to install myself.

    As for SQ, I mostly listen to rap/hiphop with the occassional rock song. I want some clean bass too, but would rather have it hit hard. I was thinking about just going with a visonik setup in a bandpass box, but that would have horrible SQ.

    Yup I'm the stock HU and everything. It doesn't even use RCA cables, so I'll need a converter or something too. That's why its kinda complicated .

    So I'm thinking Type R ($130) with a suitable amp (what would be good?) in a circuit city box. Would they be able to tune the vented box to sound good with my sub?

    cw12, listen to me, or if u dont trust me, ask around to people that have actually heard them, snoopdan has heard them, well respected on the boards, gives very nice recommendations of them. especially when they go for 245 and im selling for 150
