    Best sub (s)for $300

    Hello, i am trying to maximize my $300 budget for new subwoofer(s).

    My current selection now is two Skar VVX-10s at $150 a piece for $300 total.

    Anybody know any 10, 12 or 15 subwoofer that can best maximize my $300 budget? Its going in the trunk of a car and plays a wide variety of music, mainly hip-hop and rap but sometimes rock. It cannot be a monstrous box either(the requirements).

    I was recommended an AudioQue HDC 3.0 10 or 12 versus a PowerBass 3xl 10" (x2)

    Re: Best sub (s)for $300

    There's a new 15" havoc for sale on ebay for $299. It's been listed a few times so I know he can't sell it. He was asking $350 so the price has dropped at least once. I can post a link for you if you're interested.

    Re: Best sub (s)for $300

    seeing the sub is 1000rms im pretty sure the box wont have to be huge. i hear more ppl say use a smaller box with more power and bigger with less power.... but also would depend on what your aiming at
