I dont want any fast and furious sub amp pack from wally world though. I already have a Sony head unit (dont laugh its a good one not some $100 p.o.s., i have never had any trouble with it)and infiniti 6 1/2's in front and infiniti 6x9's in back, powered with a 4 channel Audiobahn amp. Now I just need some bass. I would just like some suggestions on a good sub system(subs+box+amp) for 500 or less(preferably less) .Please name some speciffic brands or models, none of that you will be happy if you do this and this and this, crap.Thanks for the help, I have been trying to pick something out for months now.

you can get a bass setup for pretty cheap. How serious are you looking to beat. I work at Circuit City and we have a setup with two bazooka 10s and an amp for like $199 and a box is like $50. Hell, throw the service on it for like $20 more and you gcan get a new setup like every year. Or you can go with like a DVC 12 and a good amp for like $300. Just how serious are you looking to go?

Good choices, but In my opinion, I'd go with the Audiobahn A8000T mono amp. That thing has some serious power and can let you build later if you want to. 800RMS @ 2 Ohms

If I ge that I would need two wich = 400 just for the amps. Its a good idea but an expensive one.

i just spent about $250 on my system if that and it pounds pretty hard... enough to rattle your head around....

2 12" American Pro Subs Chrome Series - Ebay - like $30 plus shipping
these are pretty good subs for the price ive had 2 pairs of 12's (sold the
first pair for twice as much as payed for and my brother has a pair of 15's
we both really like them

800Watt Audiobahn Amp - Ebay - $170 - Nice... good quality and sound

Box - about $20 if that for the wood... made it myself

Then you got about $30 for random wiring blah blah blah

This is the way to go if your not too concerned with sound quality but like it loud. The only difference is I'm pushing my 12L7 w/ a KX1200.1...a lil overpowering on my behalf :p

Hey you are not serious right?

You can get a pair of Resonant Engineering 10s for $120 ($60 each), run a Hifonics Merlin 450 for $150, http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAudio/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductID=13988


build your own box for about $60. Grand Total is $330.00. Guaranteed the Hifonics 450 watt amp will outperform any Audioblah 800 watt amp anyday. And the RE subs are a perfect sub for soundquality and economics...

1 (or 2) Alpine TypeS subs ~ $150-200shipped, TOPS (ebay or something)
Alpine MRD-350 (i have one for sale, $100 shipped)
box is about $40 in materials if you need everything

thats way under $500, and i used to have those subs, they'll MOVE with that amp

Please stray away from any Audioblah crap, but at least the website you listed is a great retail website to buy from!

Right. They know that most people aren't knowledgable enough to purchase an amp based on actual performance. Most people just buy the shiniest object they can find. Marketing in action....
