    If you are bargain hunting.

    American Bass XO 1244 12 Inch 400w RMS DVC 4 Ohm Subwoofer - SSA STORE

    Or cheap nvx sub line, cheap skar sub line, Wolfram audio cheap sub lineup, etc.

    I'd stay away from Rockville imo

    I can't even find tsp's for Rockville subs, I'd stay away.

    American Bass low end stuff is pretty good for the money.

    Re: anyone tried rockville subs for fun? it looks pretty good for $49

    I put a Rockville RMW8P sub in my nieces's car for Christmas. Alpine makes one IDENTICAL to it. The Rockville was $65. The Alpine is $250.
    I brought her car to the local audio shop to actually drop the Alpine unit in the car to see IF it was any better. It, sadly, was not. The cheap
    Rockville sounded FAR better than the Alpine. Maybe the Zeus 1200.1 wasnt enough for the Alpine sub with accordion surround.

    I am actually putting together a system for my wife's new CX-5. The amp will be an RXH-F5, 5 channel. The door replacement speakers will
    be 8" coaxials and a sub enclosure in the spare well with a single 10". I've done this same setup before in a '90 Blazer fullsize, and I was
    very impressed with it overall. They do their CEA ratings pretty well. With that being said, I do like the brand in general.

    Those rockvilles are really solid for what they are.

    Quite few ppl used rockville in the 150$ challenge with good luck.

    One of my buddies did 146 on 1 Rockville 10

    Instead of buying two or three junk subs a year just save up for 2 years and buy something nice. If you know you're in this hobby with both feet and for the long haul why screw around?
