I would say pump it but looking at the website given it doesn't look like it performs well at high volumes. looks like they are aiming solely at the cost side of things and you get what you pay for

You may want to shop around

try these http://www.sounddomain.com/sku/PIOTSW304C I have 2 waiting to be boxed can't wait to hear them in my car

sub

I would say if you are paying over $250 for each sub you are getting Ripped Off!!!!!...try looking at Orion, Soundstream, Image Dynamics..I think they are so much better

Heh, forgot about this thread...

I ended up spending some $$$ on a patent I'm working on, so no new subs as of today. I do like the sub you recommended, though! I'll probably begin work on the box before buying the sub. I want to put the amps & subs in the trunk to add weight over the front wheels, so I'll be cutting a bass port to the passenger's side compartment.

ACK! I've got too many projects & no spare time!

I keep on forgetting that the prices you guys quote are US $

So my Pioneer subs in US dollars would be $99.95 due to our crap exchange rate

pioneer subs are great sound quality subs. at $50 each, they are the best at its price.

My favs are Kove and Xtant, I'll be getting the Xtant 12 inch hexagon dual voice coil sub. Kove has an 18 inch sub that is 2000 watts RMS! but due to the fact that they are highly expensive and the only dealer is way the fuck out in California. I'd go with Alpine's 15 incher, good price, and it will get you 150 db.

[QU I'd go with Alpine's 15 incher, good price, and it will get you 150 db. [/b][/quote]you're not going to hit 150db unless you have massive power and a REALLY SMALL car. alpines are nice SQ subs, but they just don't get as loud as other subs in its price rance.
