    Best buys in 12" Subwoofers

    I changed my mind, I think I'm going to go with a single decent 12" sub instead of the two tens.

    I want a quality sub that can be had at a great price. I prefer SQ to SPL!

    Thanks again!

    I still need an amp for it as well, so nothing much to go on. Just getting recommendations as I go since I'm a noob at all this.

    ok...we need to know budget, space you have to work with, what kind of power do you think you will be going with, and more importantly do you say you prefer SQ because you think that's what you really want or you think perhaps that everyone should be aiming for that in their system. You never know if sometimes down the road you want chest pounding bass and end up hating your sub.

    I'm throwing it in the trunk of my 1999 Maxima SE. No idea on power yet, I haven't even asked about amps for subs.

    As far as SQ/SPL, I mean, I want to feel it, but I just want my songs to rock out without the sub overpowering the rest of the music. I'm not trying to win any competitions, just have a pretty nice *** system.

    it's still best to know generally what power you might go with since you will need to know if your electrical can handle it or if you will end up upgrading. If you want SQ then i would suggest looking into upgrading your front stage and head unit first. The sub stage is not that important in the overall scheme of a good sounding system

    I have some Rainbow Germs that I'll be installing in the front doors in the near future. Currently looking at that MB Quart DSC4125 to power them, though I'm of course open for other recommendations. Deck is a Kenwood KDC-X993. I have no idea what to do with the rear speakers yet!

    That's even better. Someone told me to get some coaxials for fill, but none at all is much more cost effective. :P That said, maybe the aformentioned amp is more than I need.

    MB Quart makes nice amps, but are those pre-maxxonics? I doubt it, i'm guessing it's made by Maxxonics. Still nice amps by the gut shots that i've seen of them
