Hey thanks for reading.
I am still new to this and I've only had a small system in the past for reference so I want to make sure I do this next set up proper. I am looking to put a sub in my minivan (2006 caravan) so I can tune my wife out with bass. My biggest question would be whether I should get a 15 or just a 12? I am probably going to have no choice as far as where it will go (in the back hatch) unless there happens to be some special low profile subs and boxes that would fit elsewhere (in-between front seats?). Assuming that my only option would be the back, I was thinking I would need a 15 to actually be able to feel any bass when driving. I typically play a lot of death metal/rock that type of stuff so I want all that bass and kick to be felt up front!
The only system I've owned before was a 12 kicker comp with a 300-something watt kicker amp and a nice pioneer head. But that was in an accord so it did the job well.
Are there any recommendations that someone can give me as to what kind of set up would be decent enough to actually hear? The only local audio shop has given me all kinds of run around before and I would like to either know what I need when I go in or just buy it online. I don't have too much of a budget cap, although I would love to stay under $400-500 if doable.
