I have been debating whether or not to buy a sub.
I'm definitely not a fan of big bass. (probably just answered my question right there)
I am simply looking for a way to listen to my music with great accuracy. I want to hear what i am supposed to hear. I am a big fan of balanced music. I have a pair of studio monitors sitting on my desk next to me that i love to death. They have 8" cones and 1" tweeters. Event Tuned Ref 8 (TR8)
When double bass kicks in on those, i can still feel and hear each individual hit of the drum, It is very tight.
In my car I am trying to achieve similar results on a budget. I have the Alpine 9887 head unit and I have stock everything else, i will be buying some new comps and other stuff. Lately i'm just thinking that 6.5" speakers should have plenty of bass for my needs.
I am looking for SQ not SPL
I listen to Death Cab for Cutie to acoustic rock to Breaking Benjamin to Metallica.
Basically Acoustic, rock, classic rock, Alt rock, 80's Metal and hard rock
