    subwoffer suggestions ?

    so im lookin to get some new subs , i have 2 12" rockford t0s and i love them but would like to explore other options from less mainstream companies like im used to because i keep hearing such good things about sundown and dc soundlabs and such, no one in my area goes with anything but mainstream like kicker alpine and rockford so i havent heard many other brands, id like to stick with 12s and keep it under $250 per sub , i like loud but i like to keep a good degree of sq.... suggestions ??

    What amp? How is your electrical? Guessing you have the space for a ported box?

    Re: subwoffer suggestions ?

    well i have an older rockford 801.s bridged 400w rms @ 4 ohms but im looking to purchase a new amp as well that puts out some more power something around 1400 rms @ 1 ohm , electrical isnt the best , stock alt with yellow top batt and 0 gauge big 3 upgrade , 0 gauge off the batt to the amp

    ---------- Post added at 11:22 AM ---------- Previous post was at 11:22 AM ----------

    If you've got the space for them, 1400w would work flawlessly for 2 (Sundown) SA-12s.

    Depending on what else you're looking to do, Alpine's new Type-R's are sick, 1k watt RMS for each 12" I put one in my Expedition and it's sick.

    *edit* They're only $250 apiece.

    If you are paying 250 for a type R, you are getting jacked.

    Find me somewhere that you can get an SWR-12D2 for less than that.

    Notice the (SWR-1223D) that's the sub they actually sell, trust me, I contacted them and that's the old Type-R which isn't 1k watt RMS. Yes I know the box says it's an SWR-12D2, but that's not what they're actually selling.
    Try again :P
