    Help with sub setup

    Hello everyone, this is my first thread on here. I was recommended here by a friend and I am hoping you guys can help me..

    I have a 2008 Honda Accord LX-P.
    Currently I have an lc6i, a Kenwood KAC-8405 and a pair of Alpine SPC-610c in the front and Polk DB651 in the rear.
    I am pretty happy with the sound, it was a major update from the factory setup. My system can get very loud, and has good bump (esp the Alpines), but I need some THUMP! 95% of the time I listen to my music at a moderate level. Nothing crazy loud.. my max volume is at 40, I mostly listen to it between 8 and 15.
    I don't need monstrous subs that will be heard from 4 block down the road. I just want clean, tight bass. Preferably I would like a 10" sub. I need some advice on which sub, amp, box (and wiring kit) will best complement my current setup. Again, nothing insane, I am not looking for extreme bass that rattles my entire car inside out. Good, tight, punchy bass.
    I would like to stay within $250 ($300 max) for those 4 things.

    Thanks everyone!

    Does anyone have a suggestion? I just picked up an 08 accord and I want to upgrade the system too.

    http://http://www.sonicelectronix.co...a-BPKG110.html dirt cheap method no idea how it would sound but it would guess you'll get some bass fill without having to up your budget for anything else.

    For a nicer setup, you might want to try the classifieds and land a really nice SQ subwoofer and a decent amp.
