    Been out the game for awhile (help with subs)

    How's it going. I been out of car audio for a most 4 years now and I am seeing a bunch of new stuff coming out. I have a 08 silverado crew cab and wanted advise on some subs I just don't know what is good nowadays since they have so much new stuff on the market. I seen the sa 8s and they are looking promising but I am worried about them getting low enough. My power range is 1000-2000+ watts any suggestions?

    Kinda want to keep it under rear seat and am willing to make seat lifting block.

    Thanks

    Also, don't worry about SA-8s getting low, they will do it. A couple of them on about 1500 watts or so of clean power would be nice

    Budget isn't really an issue and yes I have confidence in my boxes I build. Just what you think would be a good tuning for the sa 8s I never messed with 8s before.

    Probably will be aero ports

    07-UP GM CREW CAB 2-10" VENTED W/ AMP RACK

    if you dont wANT TO mess around and build a box fox acoustics make the best boxes for trucks absolutely amazing builds.

    that way you can fit a really nice 10

    SSD10 - Fi Car Audio Store
    custom made in the us amazing sub that would fit perfectly in the fox acoustics box and 2 of these will get loud

    or if 2 1000rms subs are 2 much

    Mmats P2510 Sub | eBay

    2 mmats 10's also us made classics that work perfectly in that box

    http://mmatsproaudio.com/home/p2-5/

    for your amp somehting amall like the

    Mmats Amplifier D3000 05 | eBay
    mmats amp here and they are the most effecient amps you can buy. made in florida

    2400 Watt Cadence ZRS C65 Mono Amplifier | eBay
    or this cadence zrsc65 which is made in korea same place american bass, audioque etc are made.

    Cadence Ultrashock A7 HC Mono Subwoofer Amplifier | eBay
    or this old school classic zed audio co designed a7hc. best amp cadence ever made imho

    I always said I would never buy a prefab box but this look kinda convincing. I use to have a ssd 12 back when they were still just 800wrms and I loved it this makes me think about that.
