    what do you recommend?

    i'm looking to get some subs for my bmw e30. I would like to keep the weight down. box is gonna be ported. not sure on the power i want to run, probably up to around 1000rms. budget is around $200-$300. i listen to mainly rap and am more oriented towards SQL. i still haven't decided if i want a few 8's, a 12 or a few 12's or what but i'm kinda leaning towards a single. a few i've been thinking about are Sundown SA, ID or IDQ, Dayton HO. what do you guys recommend?

    Don't buy subwoofers, just load your car up with 6x8's

    It is worth it if you are looking for nice output but, mainly pure sexy sound. If you don't mind buying used this amp would be a great match. Boston GT-28

    Re: what do you recommend?

    A single 12" SSA Dcon will fit the bill and only will require 400 watts to sound good, plus a decent amp are usually rated at 4-500 watts on 4 ohms which will require no electrical upgrades.
