ID:	26545992Hi, I am new to this site. I wanted to find out what is the best bang for the buck entry level subwoofers. Looking for two 10" or two 12" subs for $250. I listen to Hip hop, EDM, and R&B. I am looking for subwoofers with the best bass for the price of $250. I have a 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe with stock speakers and deck. Would I need to buy a new stereo and speakers?

    Bass Packages at Crutchfield.com
    I was looking for cheap subs and found these(the top subs). I was wondering if they are any good and are they good for the music I listen to?

    Re: Entry level subwoofers

    Honestly it will be a bit difficult to hook up an amp and get your subs to sound decent without installing a new deck. If I were in your situation, I would find a decent cheap deck, a wiring harness, and a dash kit, all of which should be under 80 bucks from somewhere like Sonicelectronix.com
    if you have the preminum monsoon audio, it might be best to keep your stock speakers, otherwise you could run some aftermarket off the deck's built in amp

    as for the best bang for your buck here are my reccomendation's

    1 - 12"

    either

    Pioneer TS-W3002D2 (TSW3002D2) 12" Dual 2 ohm Champion PRO Sub

    which is my favorite budget sub
    or
    SSA Shop - Sundown Audio E8 sub woofer
    for a better quality sound

    you could put both subs in this box
    Ground Shaker GSP 1 12 (GSP112) 12" Single Ported Enclosure

    if you have your heart set on 2 subs

    2 of these should do the trick
    HDS210

    in this box
    Ground Shaker GSP 2 10 Dual 10" Ported/Vented Subwoofer Enclosure

    and to for the power to run anything that I just recommended
    Hifonics ZRX1200.1D 1200W Max Class D Monoblock Zeus Series Amp


    that amp should have you covered, you



    Ride: 2002 Infiniti I35
    HU: Pioneer PRS-80 w/ a JL Audio Linedriver
    Front Stage: Infinity ,Infinity KAPPA 6.09cs (front doors, rears need replacement)
    Sub Stage: Sundown Audio Z.V4 18"
    Front Amp: Soundqubed 120.4
    Sub Amp: Soundqubed 2200.1
    Power: Mechman 270A alt, Diehard advanced gold agm (775 CCA, 55ah) XS Power D3100, and something like 40' of stinger pro series zero gauge throughout

    Nononononono, you got it all wrong dude. OP, do NOT get a prefab box whatever you do. Either get the soundqubed sub mentioned by macsdad or an XFL, they can be had for cheap used and are darn good woofers for the price. I would be willing to sell you an extra XFL I have and my amp, a Hifonics BFX1600.1D for $250+shipping.

    Re: Entry level subwoofers

    I recommended prefab because not everyone has the aptitude to build an enclosure, or the money to have one shipped, granted that there is noone in your area who offers box building, but yes OP avoid prefabricated Subwoofer boxes if you can, you get a much better result out of custom made enclosures, but if you don't have a choice, the ones I recommended will do, but you will be missing out

    and jrdn's deal sounds pretty sweet, that stuff will bang
