    A good sub for sound quality

    I have an ext. cab toyota tacoma with a kenwood excelon head unit, and Rockford fosgate speakers all around and my ol girl is gonna get me a sub for Christmas i wonder what would be a good set up to go with. I want sound quality and I want it to sound good and deep when it's loud but my price range is 130-175 ???? I want to do one 12 inch sub in a ported box. Around 300-500 rms power would be ideal I believe. I like loud subs but I don't want to sacrifice sq.


    I am buying the amp hat would be a good one to go with??

    Re: A good sub for sound quality

    I think JBL GTO series are nice subs for the money. A GTO 12 models great in 2 - 2.25 cubes @ 28 hz.



    Simple SQ System:

    Head Unit: Alpine CDA-117
    Active Crossover: Cache' CEX
    Front Stage Amp: Boston Acoustics GTA-704
    Components: Polk Audio DB 6501
    Sub Amp: Boston Acoustics GTA-1000m
    Sub: JBL P1224, 2.5 ft^3 @ 25 hz enclosure
    Rear Fill: Sony Xplod 5.25s on HU power lolz

    Yeah but they'll handle more in the right box with an unclipped signal. RF r500/1 is a solid budget amp.

    Its identical to the ID 12. TSP's are the same and all.

    OP I have a pair of 8's Im selling. They are XBL^2 based motor. Ive always been a fan of multiple sub setups. They would come in right in the middle of your price range.

    It's be nice to run that dcon at a solid 400 watts what would help to limit clipping?? I have heard dayton ho's are good along with dcons and arc audio fd12's just some more ideas to go with would be great

    Re: A good sub for sound quality

    It seems like your parameters are good for a Dayton HO12 (either SVC or DVC) subwoofers sold by parts-express.com. These subwoofers have good sound quality but with average or below average sensitivity, specially in a sealed box. However, they work very well in a relatively small ported box.

    Re: A good sub for sound quality

    Most of the time I would recommend dual 2 ohm for single sub set ups or single 4 ohm if you have to go that way
    My vote would be the Incriminator audio lethal injection or I series or the dayton ho for what your asking for in that power range
