Looking for some recommendations for my dads new challenger. He has the V6 with the Alpine system. No subwoofer, but I believe an amp for the doors and dash speakers. He listens to a lot of music with complex guitar and vocals.

I am much more familiar with subwoofers so I was thinking something like this:

or

on an SFB-1000D (ikik, it's a budget build). What line out converter would you guys recommend?

I am wondering what speakers would be good. $80-100 per speaker. Also can I reuse the factory amp? Crossovers?

Thanks.

I love the ultimax subs. I’m running the 8 now. One of the best subs I’ve heard in a sealed enclosure.

Stinks that they are not in stock anywhere.

You could try their new models.

Now I am thinking this maybe:


For the price loaded it's hard to beat for convenience. I hate prefabs but I trust LAB, especially for a sealed box. Just thinking 300RMS might not be enough. Probably end up throwing the Dayton in one of their enclosures.

I have it in 1 cube @ 30 hz right now. It models up better in sealed enclosures, but I wanted to try to squeeze a bit more from it.
Cool. Wonder how 4 would sound in 1.75-2 cubes sealed? Should make for a nice sq setup.

That’s not a terrible looking prefab system actually. I like the lower end JL subs.

Yeah hard to beat that value. Now I'm thinking a LAB prefab, the Dayton 10", and a SAM-500D (if it has auto remote signal detection). Only worry is that I would prefer to have a bit more than the speaker is rated for on the amp. Not going to get the most out of the sub with a 500RMS amp on a 500RMS sub. Although I come from an SPL background so I'm guessing rise isn't as big of a devil in the SQ world haha.
