    Kicker 10CVR124 or JL Audio 12W0v3-4?

    This will be my first sub so I want to hear some opinions! My friend has a pair of 07 comp VRs and they bang but I really only want one sub due to my car being a Ford Ranger ext cab. I want to be able to feel the bass and shake my windows, but I would like good SQ. Thanks!

    no

    SA-12, VVX-12, obsidian 12, or Powerbass L-12, the SA and VVX are a pretty penny more but are well worth it

    or my HDC3 10"

    I would take the prior advice and check out the SA audio or other brands you or I'd look at JL 12W3 I have a 10CVX 10-2 now that is a lil beast. Im actually selling it if your interested but Im not here to push it. Im actually thinking of switching my L7 8's to either the Skar MA-8's or SA-8 from Sundown. Ive had the older W-0 there more in line with the base Comps from kicker the CVR is closer to the W3's

    for 150 you can do waaaaaaaay better. @hispls ; can build you something really nice, that will handle more power and abuse than most new mass-market subs will for that price.

    Obsidian is cheaper and will sound MUCH better

    How much you want for it? For the right price I'd take it off your hands in a flash!

    And i'll go check out Obsidian!

    If you go with the guy I mentioned above, you will get a 3" coiled sub, made with quality parts, hand built by a good american dude. Better than a chinese-made, 2.5" voice coil, sub. Here's a video of mine taking almost 2,000 watts.

    Mine cost around than $190, I've seen other subs built by him go for less if you are stuck at 150.

    True. Depending on the size/parts/coil/basket I use I can get something out for less.
