Need A Sub Suggestion

Recommended Posts

Well i think my time at Best Buy is almost up - either they lay me off, or i make them fire me!

On that note, i want to pick up some audio components at the employee discount (almos 60% off), but am currently not a audio guru.

Therefore, can you suggest a good sub to get. I've got a bit of Pioneer equipment in the car already. I have access to Pioneer, JBL, Sony, RF, ...

I'm thinking 10 - 12" mounted like Bing or exexpat!?

Suggest away!

What are you goals for the stereo? Sound quality and spectral balance or lettin' da peeps know your isht gots da humps, yo? ;) I prefer the first option, but I was young once, too. If you would like to achieve bass that is audible outside the vehicle, you'll probably want 1-2 >=10" subwoofers with high power handling and several hundred watts in a sealed enclosure.

My stereo uses a 10w0 with 100w RMS on a baffle; that enables me to keep the spare and not consume any trunk space. I often need to haul around things like bark bags and strollers and I can't have anything taking up the space.

Bing cares deeply about this stuff, I'm half the SQ man I used to be.

Well i definitly value the funtuionality and am not prepared to let that go.

I have 5x7 Alpine Type R's in my 854 on the deck (yes i know how you feel about deck speakers).

I do want to keep my spare, and don't wnat to take up ANY room in my trunk, and also don't want to blow out any windows.

I just want some nice bass for me, and no one else!

As long as you don't haul around large movable objects with metal corners that may slide into a rear window and break it, you should be fine.

Just wanted to share an idea that worked for me, I was looking for the same thing, space efficiency, functionality, tight bass, not wake up neigbhour bass, just for me :) . My only assumption is that you are working with the wagon?

If you're still looking for a sub i would second Bing's recommendation of the Type R I have a 10" in my truck right now powered by a Hifonics Brutus Amp, it is plenty loud, but is also a decent SQ sub.
