I don't want the best sub in the world, I just want the cheapest sub that I won't be disappointed with. I'm thinking 1 10" in the smallest enclosure feasible. Any recommendations for this scenario?

12 in. bazooka P-Millers, dual voice coil. they sound great and i beat the hell out of mine everyday with a 1600 watt amp and i've never had a problem (except shaking the wires off the terminal inside the sub box wink wink thumbsup).

JL makes great subs, especially if you only want one 10, the price in the more basic models aren't too bad.

I got two 12 inch bazookas, I love them. They sound better than jl's to me. I got them in a bandpass, that might be why. What is wrong with bazookas? confused

i've had infinity subs b4 and they are great but the bazookas sound ALOT better. i've also hear the alpine subs and i thought they were horrible. if you dont want to spend a lot and you want a decent sub, i'd go with bazooka. if you want to see some pics of them, look in my profile.:;-D

Im not a fan of bazooka either... I would try JL W3's they pack a punch and have good sound quality.

audiobahn sucks so for sound quality. No offence but they do. They are loud a hell but will never be as tight and play as nice as alpine, JL, infinity.

I have two 10" Rockford HE2 subs and love them. They no longer make them, but I imagine they would be comparable to the higher-end Rockford stuff made today.

That being said, I have Infinity speakers both front and back... and love them even more. I don't think you could go wrong with higher-end stuff from either company.

^^^ I will NEVER install anything except Kappa Perfects on any cars in the future... but the HE2 subs I have are nearly as good... and I know Rockford is far less expensive.

Everybody has their brand preference, and what sounds good to one person might not sound that good to another person. Rather than just recommend the brand that sounds good to you, can anyone share what specs are important? Obviously the quality of the assembly is important, so brand comes into play, but what about materials?

When shopping for speakers, or a subwoofer in particular, what kind of cone, surround, magnet, frequency response, dimensions, etc are commonly found in a good quality speaker?

kinda off topic, but wouldn't 2 smaller subs be just as good as one larger one? and what amp would you need to go with any of this equipment?

They might be as loud. However, the depth of the sound larger subs can produce can't be replicated by smaller subs. Basically, two 10" subs might actually be louder than a 12", but they won't hit the same deep tones.
