    please recommend subwoofer system for under 400

    i am looking for a subwoofer system to complement my component system. i only have about 400 to spend for all the components such as box, amp and sub. is that enough for a decent setup? im not looking for anything that will rattle my car real bad since its not deaden, but a sub that will give me some bass that i could feel while seating in the car.

    if this helps, i drive a 2 door integra with minimum room for a box in my trunk. thanx for any suggestions!

    you could get kicker cvr 2 for 1. i think they still have the deal going on.as for a amp i would get a Rockford 500bd.and you might can get a ported kicker box also.look for the kickers on www.sounddomain.com and the amp off of eBay.heck you might save some money by buying all of it off of eBay.

    Re: please recommend subwoofer system for under 400

    $400 is a little tight but manageable. Can you build your own box if someone provides you plans?

    Type R 12"
    CVR 12"
    CVX 12"
    L7 12"
    ... and a 500-1000rms amp... ton of options here. Any brand preference?

    Re: please recommend subwoofer system for under 400

    no i have no knowledge nor tools to build my own box. there isnt any brand preference just as long as i get a nice bass that i could feel in the car.

    if this helps, my setup is

    pioneer premier mp680p
    crystal sscs 6 component system
    diamond amp
    4 gauge wire running from battery to amp

    i was thinking of getting one 12" type r but looking if any sub is better.

    Checked the link? It's currently in an 01 civic lx and you can get some nice bass out of it.

    if you have dimming problems yes but if not i wouldnt worry about it, I would either get a type r 12 or a l7 12-15.

    i was looking at the kicker cvr but there's two different ones, the Kicker 07CVR12-4 and the Kicker 07CVR12-2. whats the difference and are these better than a 12"
    type r? i will only probably buy 1 sub not 2.

    Oh yes. It'll pound. Not quite as nicely as it would with a ported setup, but I wouldn't buy a pre-fab ported box for a sub since so many variables are involved.

    Wire the sub to 1 Ohm and run the amp with that load.
