    Need recommendations for good, cheap subs

    Can someone recommend me a good subwoofer that's under $200 for one? Preferably something 10 inches or bigger.

    ed K, RE SE. Do you want SQ or SPL? How much box room do you have? What wattage do you have? Theres way to many "good" 10" or 12" subs for 200 or under... need to specify...

    The Adire Audio Shiva is a great sub for an even better price. You can find them for $125 and it outperforms many subs costing a lot more.

    Polk GNX 12", $160 for two. On sale now at crutchfield and circuit city. Handle 175rms and I have been more than happy with mine. More SQ than SPL but still hit good.

    They have a great mix of both SQ and SPL. They are a very nice sub.

    They are rated for up to 600 watts. But they work well with less. It really depends on the install though.

    supposedly they have a compression issue after around 400 watts, so they won't get much louder at all after that....so if you go with them you only need around 400watts to reach its potential (box type and size does play in here though too but typically speaking it reaches its max output around 400)
