what box did you use (ported/sealed, and size)? what mic? what frequency?
i have a 1.75cu ft box.....sealed... it was made for the '98 model RF HEs' that i had... but it seems like every thing that i put in there(so long as it is hooked up and adjusted right) will bang...but as far as frequencey... sure... my amp's LPF is set to like 65 hrtz or what ever...

Want good subs? Get away from any retail store ass.

Someday you will learn, wel all realize that PENNY FOR PENNY you always get ripped off at best buy or anywhere that sells mass car audio bullshit.

Like audiobahn for instance, they were killer in 2k1 when they were not mainstream. I worked for a shop that started selling them FIRST in michigan, and I loved em, now look at em. What a shame

As a divorced father of one, I UNDERSTAND the lack of money situation. back when I was 16, I bought a pair of crappy 10s in a box for $50 and hooked them up to a 130 watt Sunkyong amp. and threw it all in the trunk. I wasn't tryin to win any contests, I just wanted my shit to bump and rattle and shit. I ran that same amp on a pair of Kicker 15's that I paid $100 for and they sat in a box that I built with my own two hands. I'm running a pair of 6 1/2" SAS Bazooka tubes right now in my Ranger. They cost $300 for the pair, with the amp included. I don't buy new amps anymore, warranties are good, but I know how to fix my own shit. You can get great deals at pawn shops. I bought an MTX Thunder 4200 4-channel amp from a pawn shop 3 years ago for $200. I still haven't hooked it up in anything, I'm thinking of selling it... I'll take offers if anybody wants it, but my point, I guess, is simply that I like to ramble about stereo equipment and you don't have to pay a lot to get a lot. Don't hate on anybody's shit cause everybody doesn't have the money that some people have. Just say to your self, if you're not looking to win any contests: My shit bumps, therefore, I'm happy. :cool: :cool: :cool: :cool: :cool:

well i just blew those today... got a new deck with a better signal.... and it blew them within 24hrs
i would liketo correct myself... i blew the subs not cuz of the new deck but because i listen to too many people... i should of kept the amp on a LPF but instead my friend was like once you get a deck with a sub control switch the amp to Full-80hrtz... that iz what blew the subs....
