Ok, I am looking for ideas and suggestions on a sub. I've only had one other sub/amp combo in my car. While the first amp was quality (rockford) the sub was not. I was impatient and ran out and bought a cheap sub and I'm to embarrased to mention the company name. After a few months I ended up killing the sub because I was overpowering it.
I want my setup to last this time. So anyway this is the important information. The car this is going into is a integra 2dr. I have bought a brand new alpine mrp-m500 that I am looking at right in front of me. I would like to use this amp to its full potential running it 2-ohm for 500 watts. I am looking for a 10" sub that will be going into a homemade sealed box for the time being. Later on I may change the box setup...But for the time being it will be going into the box I made. I have $200 to spend on a sub, but would like to stay around $150 if possible.
I am not 100% sure on the kind of sound I want from the sub so I went around to some local shops and a place demoed a single JLw3v3 in a ported box. I was impressed by how clean it sounded and would like to keep that aspect. But I want a tad bit more output than what I heard from the JL. I listen to mostly edm like electro house, dubstep, booty breaks, drum & bass. I also listen to hip hop and rock. I don't have any other listening experience with current model subs besides the JL that I heard in that shop. So hopefully that will help those of you that know about them to recommend me something.
