So my brother wants to put subs in his car. Right now, he has an 800 watt 4 channel amp. He's looking to buy subs/box/another amp if necessary. I have been unsuccessful looking for good deals on ebay and the internet. What have you guys ran across? I'm partial to JL and Kicker.....but anything that sounds good will suffice.

I think it's a local chain (a place called Audio Visions), but other places may have this deal. The Phoenix gold 12's I got that sound great are on sale for buy one get one free (new model coming out I guess) - but they are at $270 each, so you could get both for $270. They are 500w or 600w RMS, 1000 or 1200w peak IIRC. Anyways, I love them - I got mine when they were $300 each, but I found a buy one get one deal.


*edit* - found the info - they are 500w RMS -

I have heard nothing but great things about Elemental Designs. They are not a household name, so if you are looking for something everyone recognizes, it may not be right for ya. But I have heard great things, they are just awesome for sound quality. If thats what your brother is looking for anyway, if he is looking for SPL then they are not really good for that. But check them out...

The K series is good for dual sub ported applications, and it's fairly cheap, and the Kx series is untouchable for the money (2 for ~$135). The high excursion A series is awesome also, but expect to pay a premium $280 for a 12"...if they are as good as they say they are, it might be worth it. I will be trying these when I get subs.

hey twighlight, just wanted to give you some heads up tips on those elemental woofers...

those are some great subs, but they do come with their own share of problems. ever since they launched their re-designed lines of woofers(all of them went through pretty major changes) they have had some quality control issues, namely, the cone. because of their flat cone design they have had well over half of them(i believe about 60% failure rate) to actually snap in half. while the company does warrant against this, but its still a huge hassle, and their M.O. for repair actually alters the performance of the woofer.

they have had a few other small problems, but the cone breaking is the biggest one with the new woofers. good little company, but their new lines do have their issues.
