    Looking for decent Value Subs...anyone know of any?

    For my system, I want two 12's or possibly 3 10's, but I want them to hit hard without being muddy at all. I dont think that one 15" would meet my expectations at all...

    <p>I was told that Adire Audio's 12" Shivas are very good subs for their value price of $125, I cant find anything on the net that looks comparable to them. Could anyone give me their input on these speakers or possibly some others that arent too expensive?

    <P> Which subds would I get for the 3 10's? I dont know if it would be worth it to put 3 10's or if I can pack the same punch with 2 12's? For $250 I can have 2 12's if I go with the Shivas, then all I need to do is design and build my own box. What other subs are out there that are around this price range (I dont want to spend more than $350 for the subs) and have the same quality as the Shivas? Thanks for all the helP!

    Norcal, that is all jibberish to me....Car Audio is a brand new world for me to explore!

    For only $100 more for two 15's, would I get a lot better sound and more bump by going with two tempests over two shivas?

    Re: Looking for decent Value Subs...anyone know of any?

    tmepest like it big and low so don't be surprised if you see people myself being one of them telling you 4 cubes /sub ported 23-30 hz mine are going in 8 cubes before dispalcements and tuned @ 27 hz

    i have one set up right now in 4 cubes @ 23 HZ and it is PLENTY loud and sound amazing... 300-400 watts per sub will toss them around VERY well i have 500 and it is to much

    when my other sub arrives back from warrenty soon i hope the two should wang pretty hard.

    I think I may go with teh two Tempest subs but someone else reccommended Two Memphis PR's. He said they have quality and they go for cheap on ebay. Let me know if anyone here has had experience with them?

    I think the Kicker Comp subs are the cheapest, most versatile subs you can get- seal them, port them, even free air- they do the job well

    You dont need alot of power either to get loud- 3 10's would be very nice

    Think about it though; Two tempest authorized w/ full warranty, or two Memphis subs off of egay that could blow in a week and leave you screwed...............

    Not saying one sub is better than the other, but if the performance was similar and I had the choice between authorized and non-authorized; I'd pick the authorized w/ warranty

    Re: Looking for decent Value Subs...anyone know of any?

    phoenix gold have some nice value subs .... value makes them sound cheap but i had 4 12s in a truck bed box and it was louder than my current setup .... box is the main reason. but i had ~450 going to each and it would shake the HU and its den so bad i couldnt really play test tones for more than a sec at a time.

    the Ti series subs go for ~100 each and handled the 450 watts i gave them like cake. many of the people on here who have had experience with them weill tell you they are a heck of a sub.
