    Icon14 poll on sub choice...

    sup fellas. just joined and to initiate my membership, i gotta poll for ya.

    im launchin my system and it's time for the subs and amp.
    i recently got my car, my baby, a white 97 maxima and i love it.
    came with an aftermarket sony HU, and i just added Alpine Type S all round.
    anyways the subs. ...
    im going for basically LOUD SQ...but im on a budget.
    open to suggestions but the ones i've been lookin at:

    1. 1 or 2 Kicker Solo L7's in a 10" dual box

    2. 2 - Alpine Type S in a 10" dual box

    3. 2 - 10" Fosgate HE2 in 10" dual box.

    i am a high school student so unfortunatley, I gotta stay on that budget.

    also im kinda confused on the way power works dealin with subs. is it better to get an amp with higher RMS than the subs or vise versa?

    series or parrallel?
    guys (ang gurls) thanks a ton for the help

    p.s. my alpines get pretty distorted at high volumes....if i got a 4 channel amp for them would the distortion get worse or better??

    thanx, hit me back

    its not much, but im tryin to stay between $150-$200 for one or two subs.

    don't really know about the amp, probably about the same.

    Well you can get 2 Alpine Type r's for around 200 on ebay and then use a jbl 600.1 for those,should do you well.Or you can find a Hifonics Brutus 1000d and that will do u better for the type r's.Either way it should sound pretty good.

    the w3 is more expensive than the type r because type r's can be found online for 100 and in stores for 200. the rms is 300 watts for the 10 and 12". my friends 12 sounds great.

    I would go with 2 10" or 12"jl audiow0 over the alpine typeR.If put in a good box they will do very well.You could also go on ebay and get some jlw3v1 for around 200$.As far as amps go I would save my money for a jl500/1,it will run any of those subs well.1 more thing if anything have higher rms amp than sub,I try to match rms though.
