    Re: input on subwoofer choices

    I like the c2 threatcon 2 subs. U can get 12s for $110 each right now. And a concept 1200 rms at 1ohm amp on ebay for $120. It would be cheap and loud

    Theres a killer deal on a Diamond HP12 BNIB on eBay right now $250 shipped. The guy had two, I bought one. It's a 2 ohm DVC. Wire it down to 1ohm, get a nice monoblock that pushes about 1k rms and you'll be golden.

    How much I'm looking to spend...well depends but not looking to spend over 300 $ per sub only because I'm not looking to compete but haven't been in the game for a while so have no idea what a proven sub is. I'm taking my 3rd row out I won't he needing it for quite some time so I have quite a bit of room back there to work with. A guy about my job brags about his type x alpine but I feel I should be staying away from them. I listen to all types of music mostly hip hop...some rap...house if my eyes shake I'm digging it but its gotta sound flawless.

    Re: input on subwoofer choices

    Sundown subs, a set of 12's, ssa icon 12's, sundown mono amps. These subs mentioned will get loud and low, also american bass has decent subs and amps. All of the afore mentioned brands offer entry level and spl monsters, i left out dc audio subs and amps. Mylows10, can help with most of the ones i mentioned.

    Re: input on subwoofer choices

    If you're not looking to go all out but want nice NEW stuff @ a half way descent price - Look into AQ, they got some pretty descent equip. for the prices...

    Edit: And whatever you end up going with; If you want it to sound good just don't skimp out on your enclosure, Having the correct custom enclosure for whatever subs you buy will make or break the way they sound and perform ;-)

    Re: input on subwoofer choices

    What we are saying is the choices are plenty, there's even a few on here that do custom sub builds for whatever your mind desires. And as stated before, what ever you choose, a custom box is the only way to go. A few on here do that also.

    Re: input on subwoofer choices

    Obsidian subs are the best bang for your Buck if you ask me don't buy the c2 it's a off the chinese shelf $35 woofer, any Korean based Amp (sundown, Ampere audio, Dc, crescendo, aq ), good wire (audio technix ), custom enclosure look up double07 on here (star mountain sound).

    I would go with a couple 12's or 15's

    H/U: Pioneer avh-p4400bh
    Amps: Ampere Audio 3800.1 Ampere Audio 125.4
    Subs: 2 Tantric HDD 15's
    Enclosure: 4th Order Blow Through

    Re: input on subwoofer choices

    So its all in the custom box then. I think 4 subs would be overkill for me I'm thinking maybe a pair of 12s or 15s with a custom box. I see there is plenty of choices so lemme narrow it down. If I go with a pair of 12s or 15s what's a provensub that will hit bbeyond hard but have deep lows as well but also quality build. So I'm sure there's only a select few brands that fit that category. Basic and simple I want a setup I know won't be blown out the water by the next model that comes out something that will put down for a while. I see reviews in AQ anyone recommend anything better? And would I be better off with a pair of 15s or 12s

    Re: input on subwoofer choices

    I disagree^^^ C2 Audio has had a lot of research go into it. Yes, some parts are off the shelf to save cost for higher quality soft parts. Plus it's factory direct with no middle man so thats why the cost is low.
