    Budget 12"

    My bro needs a budget sub. Looking for the best 12 for the job. Its going in 2.4 net cubes (before sub displacement), tuned to 32hz. Will be powered by an MRP-500. Setup is in an Intrepid.

    Here's my ideas's..

    SA E-12

    ....let me know if you can find anything better for 100 or under.

    One of my first thoughts, actually. But used ones are a bit rare, and usually over 100 shipped. The box and power would be great for it, though.

    That would be nice, but i doubt it. Not for under 100, anyways.


    Here's the enclosure its going in.

    @Llama Jockey ; buillt it in his HS shop class with me on the other end of his cell the whole time, lol. Its out of the free box plans thread, but I had him add a 45 to the port. His first enclosure looks hella better than my first....

    I had a be15 on 1000 rms, and I was shocked at how loud that $130 sub got. Very good subs on a budget. But I have a feeling the high mms is going to be a detriment with only 500 wrms on tap... Then again, it might be alright with the slightly oversized enclosure.

    We only have about 400-600rms on it and in his monte carlo it gets down for a single 12
