    $300 - I need small sub(s) + amp recommendations.

    I need to find a good sub and amp combo that will work well with minimal room. The sub will start out in the back of an SUV, but later be moved to underneath the back seat of a ford ranger. I'm seeking either single or dual 8's or 10's.

    Looking for decent bass with good sound quality.

    I also need an amp to drive the sub(s).

    Please let me know if you have tried any smaller subs in small sealed (or ported?) enclosures and how they did. I'd like to find a good sub/amp combo for under $300 that will add some nice sounding bass to my friends ride.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    T.J.

    I'd look at a couple of the eD Kx or K series. www.edesignaudio.com

    As for amps, most likely an Avionixx, US Acoustics, Profile, etc from eD or www.thezeb.com

    Most definetely.

    They make some nice two channels that would power a pair of Kx's or K fine

    or maybe a couple or even a few re 8's? i think those are pretty awsome. and dont need a lot of room or power and dont cost a lot. just a thought though

    Along the same price lines as the ed subs you can also get the image dynamics ID10 V3. They are cheaper and better than the IDQ v2's. They have a excellent SQ/SPL mix, amazing if you could build an Infinite Baffle box under the seat. Also very efficient about 350watts a sub will run them just fine.
