    Icon33 Best subwoofer setup

    I am going to be getting a new Challenger, lots of trunk room, and the rear seats fold down right into it... so im looking for something to put in there. (id like to stay under $700 for everything)

    What im thinking right now is to have 2 12inch CVRs in their ported box ($400) and a kicker 1000.1 amp ($300) OR go cheap with a RE Audio DTS-1000.1 ($160)
    Please let me know the best amp to power whatever setup for a good price, i dont care if the amp is top of the line, i just need sufficent power.

    I want to be heard coming down the street, but at the same time i want to enjoy my music. Subwoofers that play well and when i want them to get loud they can show off!
    I am open to all options so let me know what would be best, thanks.

    **EDIT**
    I would like the keep the amp under 1000 rms for power purposes (stock battery) and the trunk room im giving up is up to, 40in wide, 24 deep, and 18 tall.
    it will be a while before i make my purchase so do t try to sell me anything. Thanks, but links to sites where I can find subs/boxes/amps are alright, thank you.

    RIGHT NOW the thing to beat is 2, SKAR VVX 12 D2 Subwoofers ($300 for both) a 1150RMS amp ($300) and a custom enclosure (around $100)

    Re: Best subwoofer setup

    also why dont you do a 1 sub setup if you want to show off. get a AQ hdc3 15" Dual 2, run the amp at 1 ohm.

    Happen to know any measurements of the trunk or how much space you're willing to give up?

    Also, Just say no to Audiopipe.

    Re: Best subwoofer setup

    Thanks for the ideas, im deciding what to do. If i can use a single 15 that will be better then im all for it. I would like the keep the amp under 1000 rms for power purposes (stock battery) and the trunk room im giving up is up to, 40in wide, 24 deep, and 18 tall.
    Thanks for ideas amd everything, it will be a while before i make my purchase so do t try to sell me anything. Thanks

    Re: Best subwoofer setup

    Your Kicker idea wasn't too bad. You can get the setup with the "livin' loud" ported box off Ebay now for around 220 shipped. They get decently loud. Don't sound real good but if you're new to audio you'll probably think they're the shiz. Throw a Kicker zx750.1 on them and you're good to go.... You're under the 700 bucks by a couple hundred. Plus Kicker still sells well on Craigslist to get some of your money back when you're inevitably going to upgrade.

    well really look into the custom made zen enclosure for your trunk, they make amazing boxes, kicker is garbage and there are a million other subs for the same price id get over cvr's.

    150-200 subs

    skar 12

    SSA Shop - Sundown Audio E8 sub woofer x2 (link shows E8, but supposed to be E12's)
    or these in S4 coils; http://store.soundsolutionsaudio.com...subwoofer.html

    get the D2's and wire them to a 2ohm final load. The brutus is suited real good for 2ohm use, judging by the doubling of output from 4ohm to 2ohms, and personal experience. They are not the best, but they are not the cheapest class d junk you can buy either. Don't know if the box will fit the car, but it fits the subs real good..check your trunk dimensions and see what you really can do, box wise..2 15's would be great..the above is just an example that can do good sounding bass for less.

    Re: Best subwoofer setup

    Thanks for the ideas, so far im still leaning towards my option (2 CVR 12s in their ported box and a 750.1 or 1000.1 Amp)
    Any ideas on hwo this would compare to the same size box pushing a 15 inch CVX??? (Or two CVX 15s running about 1000-1200RMS)
