    need a subwoofer for cheap.

    Hey guys. I'm a senior in high school and my senior project is coming up. It determines if I pass or fail high school. Anyways, what I'm doing is I'm gonna buy a subwoofer, a prefab box, and then I'm mentoring a guy to build a custom ported box. Then I'm gonna get a meter and play different frequencies and compare how loud it is from Xhz to Yhz(not sure of exact frequencies yet) then I'm gonna make a line graph that compares the two and how they perform with different frequencies. If anyone could help with a cheap sub that'd be awesome. Thanks.

    If the meter isn't a termlab you're gonna get false results. Also download sine waves. I would test 30, 35, 40, 45 and 50hz.

    I've never heard a sound stream sub. How do they sound and what's the model? I heard there amps were good for the money.

    Re: need a subwoofer for cheap.

    Yeah. I hit it with 500 rms for awhile, caused slight VC rub. It pounded. Still sounds great though. cosmetic isn't the best (about 5/10), but for the price shipped it's hard to beat. Or tell me what you think.

    I'm not sure what kind it is, I figured regardless of whether the decibels are exact it will still give me accurate representation of where its louder at. Just not the exact loudness.
