    Looking for sub under $130 shipped(New).

    I haven't been keeping up with audio for the last few years, anyway I'm looking for a subwoofer for under $130 shipped. Someone gave me $130 to buy a sub to run off 600@1ohm RMS. Just throwing this thread out there to see if there are any sales (perhaps just a great deal) or whatnot going on I'm overlooking. 10" or 12" are both options must be available in DVC 2 ohm. Thanks.

    I've managed to find a few from quick 10 minute search.


    SKAR VVX 10" on sale for $120 shipped.
    C2 Audio Threatcon-2 12" for $109 shipped.
    Audio Technix Strato 10" for $115 shipped.


    Also, I know you guys will want to suggest the more expensive boner subs, but the budget is $130 shipped. I may just get a 12" Pioneer TS-W3002D2 for $99 because I've owned them and know they're ok for the price.

    C2 is the most powerful of all those options, I would go for that, if im not mistaken strato is 400rms not in the sale league as the skar and C2 and C2 has 3 inch coil vs skar 2.5 inch coil on vvx. plus you get a lot more cone area on 12's which makes a big difference. better order the c2 before the pre order finish on the $109

    The Pioneer TS-W3002D2 Is by far the most powerful sub of any of those options you listed... You are NOT going to find a better sub for the $100-ish price range...

    Having a bigger coil doesn't change my decision. Sure it can take more wattage but as long as the woofer I'm getting will make the most of 600 watts, it's all good. I seriously doubt there will be any upgrading going on, besides I've always favored more efficient subs than ones you have to throw a buttload of power at to get full potential. The high FS rating on the C2 shys me away. It seems it's purpose is to put up numbers on a meter for cheap. I'm more interested in woofers that are geared toward the low end, I think the old abbreviation is SQL. Coil size makes no difference to me.

    So basically it's over budget and not the right configuration. Great suggestion.

    Audiopipe txxbd series is worth looking at, rated for 900 rms. They go for around 120-140 depending on where you get it. Beasty little subs.
