I'm looking to put some bass in my integra, and I've been thinking about getting a set of 10"s and a single 12". My problem is I can't decide what subs I should get. I'd like for them to be the same brand with the main focus on the 12". Something with good SQ and a good sharp bass. I'm also on a bit of a budget, around $300, so this has not been to easy.

So far I've come up with a few posibilities.

Hifonics: 2 HW!0's and a HZ12

Kicker: 2 CVR10's and a CVR12

Alphasonik: 2 PSW210's and a PSW412

So far I'm leaning for the Alphasonik but there's only one place I know of to get them, so I can't compare prices.

Also a friend of mine is trying to talk me into getting Volfenhag subs with him. He says they're good quality and if we got them togeather they'd be cheap as hell on ebay. But I've never heard them before and am a bit iffy on how good thay are for the price [about $150 for 2 10"s and a 12"].

Any suggestions on any of this would be a huge help.

Or if there is something better please let me know.

Anything would be greatly appreciated.

As for a n amp for the D2 you can pick up a MMATS pro audio 500.1 for in the 200$ range underratted and very high quality.

500rms x 1 at 12.8 v

whatever you do, dont mix sizes. 10" subs have a higher freq then 12" subs so you would get a funny sound. with your low buget i would suggest getting 2 10"s or 1 12". also, go with a familiar name. those non brand name subs are a good price but poor quality. i suggest from the options you stated that your best bet would be to go with the kickers

eD k12.44 is $135 + shipping. A great budget sub that can handle the power and get pretty darn loud.

Just my two cents

Myth. It all depends on the Fs (resonant frequency of the sub) and the Vas. There are 10s out there that have a really low Fs. There are 12s out there that have a really high Fs.

You still don't want to mix subs. Not just size but brand, model and enclosure type should be the same for all speakers playing the same frequencies. Even small differences in frequency response and phasing will play havoc with your sound.

Get a few 10s or a pair of 12s and you should be fine.
