Here was my first question asking about what subwoofer ohm to run with my Alpine M500 Mono amp and got good feedback on that info.
LINK -2 ohm or 4 ohm Sub (both 200-400 RMS) With This Amp (2ohm=500 and 4ohm=300 RMS)???
I have done a good amount of looking and think I have decided on the MTX FPR Shallow Mount sub ... I am staying in a price range and can't do the awesome JL Audio / Alpine Type-R shallow subs unfortunately ... gotta stay in the 100-150 range (plus I don't need major competition stuff, just looking to add some very nice clean bass to my current stock system at this time).
Rockford Fosgate Punch P3 are not in the running as that was my first set-up in a pre-loaded box from RF and it sounded horrible (and that was matched with the amp made for that sub from RF ... no go on that, RF seems to not be what they used to)
What do you think about the below choices???
My main choice at this type is the MTX-FPR12 Shallow Mount 12" Subwoofer $137.50........

I have also thought about these other options as well but I think the MTX may be better:
Kicker CompVT (10cvt122) 12'" Subwoofer $104.95 .....

Pioneer TS-SW3001S2 12" Subwoofer $109.95........
LINK -Pioneer TS-SW3001S2 (TSSW3001S2) 12" Shallow Mount Subwoofer
Another option but seems on the cheap side and has a low RMS rating (300 vs. 400 on the others) I'm sure the options above are better but who knows.
MB Quart Reference RLP-304 $84.95
LINK -MQ Quart RLP-304 (RLP304) 12" Dual 4 ohm Low Profile Reference Sub
FYI, I am running them in a sealed box with just about the correct Cu. Ft. the sub calls for (I will also be adding some polyfill in the box as well). Also wiring is perfect using my 4awg to distribution block and 8awg out to amp for power and ground.
And I will be running it along side an Alpine MRV-M500 Mono Amp. This amp is rated at 500 watt RMS @2 ohms and 300 watt RMS @4 ohms.
