    Budget subs!!!

    Think im gona do a budget 4 sub setup... either 4 10's or 4 12's.

    oh the 10's i think can be ported, the 12's wont have enough air space so the will be sealed

    PG RSdC's are way better then the Rsd's. They get pretty loud off little power as well. Pretty efficient subs.

    Sub Amp: Crossfire VR4000D

    Re: Budget subs!!!

    i have 4 tidal audio 12inch subs they go for 80.00 shipped. they like low tunning or u can do them sealed. i have them in a box that is to small but they get loud . sealed u can do 6 cubic feet off of like 1000 rms and that will b nice. there like 300 rms the fs on them is like 20 and the xmax is 17mm.there like the id v3 from what i was told.
    link to one sub looks to b sealed and i would say 1-1.5 cubic feet
    tidal audio sub , song = young zeezy - i love it video by jimnolimit - Photobucket

    Re: Budget subs!!!

    info is on the FI site... you can get the BP option to handle a lil more power and can be reconed. that is why i was/am leaning towards them.. but that BL 15 is cheaper and i think i can get it to fit in my trunk!!

    They hit the lows VERY well have maintain Very good SQ in a sealed enclosure
    ... If you were to give me the measurements of your trunk ( or just tell me the Year/Make/Model )
    I could give a suggestion.

    Re: Budget subs!!!

    My issue with this thread is why get 4 "budget" subs and sound alright when you could get two or even one "expensive" sub and wow everyone with that. If you are trying to save money why get 4 subs? Just doesnt make sense to me.
