    Best cheap low power sub?

    Yes I am using a plate amp, I ordered 2 of those Parts Express Subs, will make a box from some MDF.

    Best cheap low power sub?

    the low power is due to this being in a shop not a car, sadly 120 volt power is still very expensive.

    Best cheap low power sub?

    Me and my buddy are messing around and trying to make the best cheap ass bass. Working with about 100 watts What sub would work best? Blaupunkt? Box is 2 cube tuned to 36

    Wanna run a 3.5, which one?

    I have been running 2K for a couple of years and am ready to step up to the next level. Have a F350, 300 amp alt, 2 batteries, 2 runs of 1/0 I will be running under 1 ohm as I have 3 - 4 ohm DVC subs My buddy recommends the Wolfram but it is on backorder for a while. What other amps do you recommend? I wish I had the budget for a Sundown but cannot swing it. Looking to stay around $450

    New truck, new subs?

    Just got a new to me F350 Crew Cab. Currently running 2 Skar ZVX 8's on 2k watts in a small truck. This 350 is WAY bigger but I do not have a lot of power to play with as I need to keep it under 200 amps so 2k watts. i have the room for a pair of 12's as I am ditching one of the rear seats however I just dont think I have the power needed by most 12's these days My box builder is pushing for a pair of 8's in a 6th order box. I think a pair of 12's in a standard slot ported would be better (I just want output) So use my 8's in a 6th order or a set of 12's (no idea the brand, something that needs just 1,000 watts each) Thoughts?

    Help me with a pair of Skar ZVX 8's

    so 8's facing forward firing into the front seat, how much room between the subs and seat? Port firing towards door, how far away should port be from door? 2-8's on around 1,200 watts, is that enough? They can handle 2k but I don't have the correct ohm load.

    Help me with a pair of Skar ZVX 8's

    I just picked up a pair of these. They are dual 2 ohms so I will have to run them at 2 ohms on my RP 2000.1 I am putting them in my Ford Sport Trac My rear seat folds down into a flat platform. It is a 2/3 split. I want to remove the larger side and build a box, this will allow me to put one person in the back when needed. The rest of the time the back is just for my dog and cargo. This is basically the setup, So anyway I am surprised the subs require so much airspace. Skar says 1.2 cubes each, that is pretty big. I am thinking a pvc tube is the only way I am getting a port to work. So thinking subs firing forward and the port sideways firing towards the rear door. How much room should I have between the subs and the back of the front seat, I am hoping 2-3 inches is enough? Thoughts?

    What sub would work for this box?

    I've decided to scratch that idea. it is always the same **** with every new car I get, how much room do I want to give up to have good bass. I really wish I lived in an area with more systems so I could hear different setup's. I would love to know how much bass I could get out of just 1 beast 12" My 2 Skar 12's are more than I need but one is not enough.

    What sub would work for this box?

    I will not have the gain up much anyway, it just is the sub amp I have laying around to use. I have 2 questions. 1) How does a downfiring sub sound, can it get loud? 2) What sub, any sub under $250 would get the loudest in that box? this is how the box looks and would work perfect as I could toss anything back there without worries. If this idea is crap then let me know. I am not going for car breaking bass like I just had in my last setup but want something that is pretty decent loud.

    What sub would work for this box?

    I know, a strange way of doing it. I just picked up a Scion Xb to use for daily duties and need a sub setup that will let me use the storage area without worrying about the subwoofer getting damaged. I found this prefab downfiring box that would be perfect. Here are the specs of the box. Gross Airspace: 1.67 Cu.Ft. Net Airspace: 1.51 Cu.Ft. Mounting Depth: 7" Port Dimensions: 8" x 1 1/2" x 14" Port Volume: .11 Cu.Ft. Tuned @ 34Hz The subs I have laying around are the following: Skar 12"vvx v1 Alpine 10" Type R JL Audio 10w3v2 I can also buy something else if needed. I just feel like the box is too small for a 12" and wonder if a 10" would give me the bass I like. Amp is a Skar RP2000

    how many of yall

    For what reason did you post that? it has nothing at all to do with the OP and has nothing at all to do with the thread. it really just makes you look like a dumb attention *****.

    How many channels do i need

    I have my tweeters connected to my headunit on an active Pioneer and it sounds very good, have you heard that setup before as it works good and is pretty common. My tweeters play from 3.1K and up and the headunit has no issue supplying them. To the OP that is a good plan and works well. I have my tweeters on the headunit My 6.5's on a 100x2 amp and my subs on 2,000 watts

    Front end alignment

    Dude shut the 'f' up bro. "Take it to a place that will do it right and pay them whatever they want" makes you sound like a complete D-Bag

    Are All Amps Bridgeable?

    yes it will be fine. Tune it to around 35-37 hz and it will be plenty loud
