    Best way to spend $400 on sub/amp

    I'm looking to spend $400 max on a 12 inch subwoofer and a good amp that will power it nicely. This will be placed in a $100 pre-fab ported box with 1.75cubes tuned to 38 Hz (unless someone can give me a link to a better $100 prefab box?). I will not be able to build my own box, as I have absolutely 0 experience and am way too busy with school to attempt it.

    I listen to mostly rap/hip-hop with the occassional techno/trance and rock song.

    So far, the best bang for the buck I've found is:
    eD 13Ov.2 + nine.2x = $360

    OR I could save $60 and get the eD 13kv.2 instead. Would it be worth the extra $60 to buy the Ov.2?

    Thanks

    CVX > 13OV.2?

    What would be a good enough amp to power the CVX? It would have to be around $200ish..

    btw I know you guys are mostly against eD, but on a unbiased stance, is the 13Ov.2 really that bad?

    Re: Best way to spend $400 on sub/amp

    check your stereo shops for a killer deal, i got my 12" eclipse on a buy one get one free sale, so a 400 sub cost 200. as for the amp i just bought a cheap sony xplode 1200 watt from circuit city for 200.
    the amp came with two cheap subs that you couldnt give away, but anyway, i still have one hooked up.
    i have a total of about 700 into my setup and it bumps pretty good

    I have an Acura RSX Type S with the bose system. It is a small hatchback so it should bump pretty hard
