    I have approx $4-500 for sub(s)

    I was looking at either a Fi SP415, Cadence ZRS15-1000-2, Sundown Audio Z v3 15 dual 1.. For the amp, I would get what ever would go well with the sub decided on.. Looking for some input. I have heard the Cadence subs.. I like them. I have heard alot of good things( on this board) about the Fi and sundown subs.. If you had the same budget for a sub or subs.. what would you buy? I was gonna go with a 15.. but would go with 2 12's..

    Im not really sure what your goals are here, but I have recently got some AQ hdc4 18s which are under 500 a peice, and they definately get loud. I havent finished rebuilding my wall completely and its not sealed off yet, among other things and im pretty impressed

    Thank you for the reply. Im not looking for a SPL monster.. Just a decently loud sub. I can build boxes..I have been out of car audio for a few years.. Getting back into it now. I have a 1998 GMC fullsize ext cab. Plan on removing the rear seat. I already have 1 ga ran to the back of the cab. dist block and 4 ga going to an powering my component sets in the doors and rear of cab. I dont plan on a wild setup.. just a single 15.. or possibly 2 12's

    First of all a good question would be whether your willing to invest in the electrical upgrades needed to run a decent size amp. The subs that your naming want a large amount of power and if your budget is limited to 500 dollars including amp, electrical etc your gonna have to seriously reconsider.

    Phemps... No, that $500 is just for subs. I have a 200A alt, extra battery already. Just a matter of putting them in.
