    True^^^^I'd go back to my pioneer shallow mount sub I used to have before picking those up. It was a beast in a small package.

    Re: Help me choose between subwoofer offers

    None of them. You can do better for the price and, sealed, none of those amps will give you enough power to do the subs justice.

    But #3 if you MUST go with one of those options. It's the only one with a competent amplifier.

    First, looking for your max budget followed by musical preferences and space you have available for the sub stage. Under 300, though, you're really not going to find much of anything unless you're really good at finding used equipment.

    Here's a good amp recommendation if you feel eBay-savvy:
    Boston Acoustics GT 24 Car Amplifier | eBay

    As for subs, a Dayton HO 12" would probably walk all over any of the subs you previously mentioned and only runs for about 150 shipped.
    Dayton Audio RSS315HO-44 12" Reference HO DVC Subwoofer 295-467

    Add in another 100-150 for a properly-built enclosure and you should still be well within the price range of your previous options.

    Definitely need to up your budget, then. You could also consider a JBL GT-BassPro12. Basically a powered, vented sub enclosure that doesn't take up a bunch of space.

    Re: Help me choose between subwoofer offers

    Amazon.com: Pioneer TS-SWX251 10" Flat Subwoofer with Enclosure 800 Watts: Car Electronics

    Amazon.com: Pioneer Gm-3300T 2-Channel, 300-Watt Max Power Amplifier: Electronics

    Amazon.com: Audio Technix Complete CCA 8 GA Amp Install Kit: Electronics

    thats what I would do for just a cheap start up setup. the amp will push right around th RMS the sub would take. The sub can handle more but its a starter system.
