    Could use some advice

    Ok i am wondering what i could get for subwoofers for a fairly cheap price that sound pretty good? And i wouldn't mind if anyone suggested an amp that would be pretty good with the sub suggestion. Thanks all

    Do you want to take up most of the trunk or do you want to put it in the cubby hole in the rear?

    How hard could that hit from such a small box? I'd be interested in hearing an fbody with one of those.

    I've got one of the cubby hole boxes from sub thump with a 10 RE sub and a JL 500/1 amp and its plenty of bass and also has nice sound quality.

    Forgot to say the RE sub was about $150 shipped. The JL amp was rather pricey but I had been running it on a different sub prior that I gave to my brother. He now runs that sub on a Total Mobile Audio amp I got for him which is company made by JL and the amp pushes nice and was relatively cheap.

    the small enclosure is what it makes it sound so crisp imo.

    I ordered this box off of e-bay for around $79-99. I also have a kicker CompVR 10" sub with the ZX400.1 amp also kicker. The amp that comes with the kit above is not up to par in my opinion. My amp puts out 400watts rms, sounds great perfect for our cars.

    see thats what im in doubt about that mtx kit, is the quality.
    just had a buddy call me with a jl w3v3 for bout $100, jl amp 500w X1 $200. . i may just do that. i built my stealth box for my firebird, prob do it again.

    A JL 500x1 for $200 you can't really turn that down.

    I want to buy a 10" Alpine type R. I need to order or get the custom box to fit it though. Got an amp already. My question is what did you search for to find this custom box?

    One of my fav subs. From 6" to 12", all around good products that aren't ridiculous in price.

    i wouldn't see why not. but i wouldn't buy this particular box if you're gonna do that. I would just get a plain box from subthump or ebay.
