    new here, wondering what 2 12s to get

    my friends going to me sell me his alpine mrp500 with a box that has two pioneers in it for 200, it hits pretty hard but i don't know what the pioneers are and im going to replace those, i was either going to go with two kicker comps or maybe two JL w0v3s i'm new to this stuff and JL and Kicker are the only brands that i know that i hear are reputable. Right now i have a boss amp trying to push a pioneer that some one gave me for free and it *****..big time.. any help would be appreciated.



    also i my car ( 2003 corolla) came with a boss headunit in it, bottom of the line one there like 35$ will there be a big improvement to the bass if i replace that with some like a $100 alpine?

    Personally I would look into the sundown E series or the entry level SSA subwoofers as for speakers I would try looking into CDT.

    If you want to take a risk you could buy some of the old Skar 12s that are being sold... I don't recommend supporting them though

    Also look into Kenwood or Pioneer HUs. They're the same general quality as Alpine but much cheaper. My Kenwood HU was about $70 and it's satisfied me so far.

    hifonics hi-fi they are 30 dollars new a piece... **** I cant believe im recomending that.... Get an audiopipe apsm 1500 for around 120 and find yourself a used 100 dollar 15 on this forum. ...put it in a pre fab if you must or save up and build your own enclosure, you will be around the 300 dollar mark once you get a wiring kit and box made but it will be way louder

    I would stay away from the w0's and the comps The kicker cvrs arent too aweful but for the money you maybe able to score some sundown e series or look up woofer cooker he does reconed subs that are in great shape for great deals.

    Or you could go with the VME subwoofers that are like $50ish a piece people are having success with those for the price as well.

    My friend is satisfied with his $40 powerbass.. I wouldn't really recommend getting something that cheap unless budget is a problem though

    Re: new here, wondering what 2 12s to get

    One mrp500 is not that much of power, something like 500watts RMS. I'd recommend a single 12 inch subwoofer. Put it into a ported box if you need more SPL. Which 12 inch sub with this power? I really like my Infinity Kappa 120.9w. It's rated "only" for 350watts, but I think it's an understatement. I have been powering it with 250 watt, 450watt, and 600watt amps, all set with DMM. It sounded great in each case. For sealed box application, put it into a 1 to 1.2cu ft box. The impact and punch are pretty strong, but it won't set the world on fire in a sealed box. For more SPL, put it into a 2cu ft ported box tuned to 25Hz. Another sub you can try on this power is RE Audio SE/X12. Sonicelectronix has them on sale right now. These are also pretty good subs, with more power handling and xmax, but require a bit bigger box probably.
