    Single 12 inch sub with mono block

    hi im new to the forums. i currently have 2 12" kicker comps running on a zx500.1 mono kicker amp. The subs take up the whole back of my crv. Im planning on selling the comps and down grading. But i still want it to be kind of bassy and loud. Ive already made a 1.9 cubic feet box out of mdf. i havent even drilled a hole for the sub to go in. i want to put a single 12 inch sub that i can use my 500 watt mono amp on. ive been llooking at the infinity reference and the alpine type r. Could any one tell me some good subs for a 500 mono amp for around 150 bucks. also would i get a 4 ohm or 2 ohm subwoofer and would i wire it in parralel or series. any help would be appriciated =)

    You'll want a DVC 4ohm subwoofer since your amp puts out 500 at 2 ohms. You'll need to wire it in parallel. Also, you've got a lot of choices in the 500w range for $150 or less. Also, is the box you built sealed or ported? I'm assuming sealed since you didn't state otherwise

    The Infinity Ref you mentioned would do well in that box. Also look at Partsexpress.com and look at the Dayton HO's. They do well sealed too. There's plenty of options at that 150 price range. At 1.9 cubes I'd almost put an aeroport in your box and make it a bit louder... Just a thought.

    Re: Single 12 inch sub with mono block

    Well here's some sub recommendations. That box is slightly large for being sealed though

    SSA Shop - Sundown Audio E8 sub woofer
    DCON 12 Sound Solutions Audio 12" 300W DCON Series Subwoofer - SSA STORE
    Obsidian 12 - Obsidian Car Audio
    Dayton RSS315HO-4 12" Reference HO Subwoofer 4 Ohm - Vertex Audio
    Street Duty SDC2.5-12-D4 Subwoofer

    And American Bass is a good choice as well
