    Sub Choices

    I've got roughly $160 to work with right now, need 2 12's.
    I have a Metrik MAB901 1900Watt amp. (950Watts/One Channel @2Ohm.)

    Just wondering what some good budget subs that would match with that amp would be.
    I've already got a ported box for the subs, as well.

    Thanks for any help.

    Those Rockfords, would it hurt pushing them with a 1900W amp?

    It's not a namebrand amp, but It was given to me, and it beat my old amp, so I'm sticking with it, I'm sure it pushes less than it states, but still more than the subs were rated for, so just curious.

    Sorry, didn't see it in the first post.

    I'd look for a couple dual 2ohm 12's. The options are endless but look for ones that are around 3-400rms each. Sonicelectronics.com has great prices and you can really narrow down the search field for exactly what you need.

    Does that 160 include a prefab box or will you be building your own?

    Another part you missed :whistle:
    I've got a ported box already.
    So I should look for subs around 3-400 RMS each, even if the amp puts out 950(or so it says, lol)?

    It's bedtime, forgive me.

    That was a rough estimate assuming the amp does under rated power. But in that range you can still pick up some decent subs that if you decide to upgrade the amp in the future, will still be of good quality.

    W/o knowing the specs on the ported enclosure its difficult to pick out subs for it.

    It's all good, and yeah, I know.

    What about 1 12" that will outperform 2 12"s?

    The op has a box he wants to use. If he buys a box his budget is gone.
