    wassup!, yeah at the moment im got two polk 10's and a 501s fosgate amp, it hits hard but im looking for something with deeper base and id prefer 1 speaker just because i don't want it to take up the space so im thinking one good 12 (i don't want a 15), im looking for the deepest/cleanest overall base for the buck (cost is an issue) so throw me some suggestions. . .thanks guys!

    if you have a rex then get a Rockford 12" HE, put the box against your hatch so if you look behind you you can see the face of the sub, and put it in a sealed box, but mount it rear firing, it will be loud as all fuck.

    i use rockford for components, but id go jl fosho. either a 10w7 or a 12w3. they would both be affordable, and they will rattle your spleen apart. i know the 10w7 is only a 'ten', but it hits harder then almost any 12 ive ev4r heard. its a little more spendy than the 12w3. if you want to spend less the 12w3 is the way to go. now, most people like sealed enclosures, but if you go ported, youll get another 3db out of the deal. thats like doubling your amp power. of course the trade off for this is that you need a bigger box. not a whole lot bigger tho. like 2ft3, instead of 1-1.5. go to local stores and listen. make sure that you like the sound, not the pitch the salesman is running. of course he is gonna try to upsell you. but let him know your budget, and only listen to subs within that budget. i use 2 12 jl 12w3's and a 6w0 6.5 inch sub in the cab.

    Not nescessarily, sealed, ported whatever depends on the speaker and box design.
    I have a 10" Polk Momo in a tiny sealed box and it is more than loud enough.

    Infinity Kappa prefects are sick, prolly the crispest bass I've heard. Alpine Type R's are nice too.

    I have a CRX I need something to mount up my 1 12 inch Polk Audio Momo series sub and 1000 watt Sony Xplod and that set up is really nice where can I get plans to make it or do I have to buy the whole thing. My 1 sub rocks my car really good!

    Well, as far as a sub goes, everyone in here will tell you something different, and as for subs, they are as many opinions as there are for subs...what I would do is just check around and see what sounds the best to you...

    PS ~ Ported and Vented are the exact same thing, and the exact same concept...one is rectangular, and the other is round, only difference...
