    The lanzar Max are decent but the Mason series is a lot better for a little more money. Depends how much power you are gonna use though 2k down. Use the Max series 2k to 3500 use the maxp series

    I mean I can't argue with experience but you asked for cheap subwoofers and you kind of get what you pay for you know :-p Personally I still think the comps are better than half the subwoofers listed.

    you cant say something about the prime series because you've had experience with the punch series... oranges and apples... it really is. the prime series is ok, nothing special, but the punch series really is bottom of the barrel, so there really is no corrolation between them besides the rockford name (and NO, i'm not endorsing rockford subs, just completely disagreeing with this statement)

    I thought something was a little odd with his statement but I havn't ran rockford since the HE2's so I wouldn't know for a fact. I always found Prime to be somewhat decent for the price in their line considering the price of their other products vs performance.

    IDK, i have my own reservations about rockford subs... but i won't put all that out here... the prime series is ok, the punch series is complete crap... it would be the same as me comparing any other brands baseline model to one of their upper models... just doesnt work

    I've had Kicker 8" CVR8 subs in homemade fiberglass kickpods for four years and I've been really satisfied with them. They've really surprised me. I've pushed Black Sabbath and Rush thru them and they do a fine job. Bass drums sound fantastic. Whenever I tweak my amp settings I then test-listen with Black Sabbath "Mob Rules" with fantastic drumming and subs pass the test with flying colors. Like $55 each. I probably got a new pr. on ebay for $100.

    The coils smoked because they are tiny 1.5inch coils, what else can you expect from something that size. Sounds like they were being over driven. I had a pair of p1 10s from 2004 (red and black ones) and they had surprisingly good sq but didn't get very loud which is to be expected. I have heard a prime 12 as well and it was terrible, sq was meh at best and spl was just terrible, granted it was in a sealed box though. The primes will go lower than 43hz, its all in the box, but its just not gonna have great spl.

    The Prime series of subs is an absolute joke, just like the JL WX series. The product has been cheapened as much as possible and is sold to those looking for a label or a brand that is well known and trusted. 6mm of xmax is absolutely pathetic by todays standards, you can get more excursion, motor force and voice coil for the same price or less than the Primes. Its the same method as Volkswagen stripping down the Jetta (no power seats, windows, locks, radio) to get the base price down to around 14 or 15k.

    Something tells me you havent heard very many setups if you think CVRs sound good

    I'd say kicker comps from sonic electronix. They are very cheap. You might be surprised, but I think you could find a good deal on ebay. KICKER VC12 CAR AUDIO COMP LOADED 12" TRUCK ENCLOSURE | eBay

    Dear god no. Terrible product unless you only care about something that makes noise and takes up space and nothing else.

    I've gone through 2 JL10W0s and blown both of them. I was powering them with no more than 125 watts and although they sounded pretty good, they just didn't last--stupid foam surrounds.

    I did an install with 2 12w0v2's in a sealed box and a Kenwood mono for a friend, and they did pretty good and were still bangin after at least a year. Must have been user error.
