    Need good advice on a sub+amp combo, $500ish budget

    Hello everyone! I'm new to both the forum and somewhat new to car audio in general so please excuse any noob questions lol.

    I already have an alpine Alpine MRP-F300 that will be most likely powering 2 pairs of Infinity Kappa 60.9cs. So i need a great sub and amp to complement them for around $500. I mostly listen to dnb dubstep and hip hop so i like alot of heavy bass. But obviously when i put on some 80's rock every now and then it should sound great anyway. The only other thing is i strongly prefer it to be in a sealed enclosure. This will all be put in a 96 prelude and soon enough a late 80's trans am

    I'm always open to ideas and suggestions cause what the hell do i know?

    Thanks in advanced for all/any help

    Re: Need good advice on a sub+amp combo, $500ish budget

    I plan on ordering everything off of sonicelectronix and installing it myself

    I'm currently looking at an alpine SWR-12D2 pawered by a Hifonics Brutus 1200.1D. Seems to be very popular and gives me more room in my buget for a better HU.

    Any thoughts?

    I don't know right off hand anything that can compare to the proven performance of the BRZ/SWR combo. I mean, they are not the best, but they do **** good work compared to anything else that is available for $300.
