    Best Sub setup for under $250

    I will be buying a sub or subs soon. The setup will be going into a ford explorer and powered by a Hifonics bXi 1606D. It will be used daily, therefore I'm looking for both sq and spl, but right now I'm leaning more towards spl.

    Which setup do you think I sould go with? Other recommendations are welcome but should be under 250 total.

    AudioQue HDC3 seems to be a popular choice, I'm sure someone is going to bring it up since it's a forum boner and you said your leaning towards spl.

    So far so good. All those reviews you read saying things like; the sq is what you expected, it gets louder than you would think considering it's and sq sub, etc.. it's all true

    I just need to build an new box for mine and I'll be set.

    Re: Best Sub setup for under $250

    I voted for the CVR's because the HDC315 wants more than 1500w to really get shining. I could be wrong when the copper wire version comes out though.

    I didn't read the rest of your thread and saw you were looking for both SQ and SPL... not just SPL. so....

    i fail.

    But....

    I've heard great things about the MAW's!



    back at it...
