The infinity perfect is supposed to be one of the best for SQ, and isn't too expensive. From your choices the only ones I have actually owned are the MTX and they have decent SQ and are pretty loud, but don't have a lot of power handling.

i you want something that will last, and impress everyone that hears it, while maintaining a budjet under 200 i would get a single kicker 12" solobaric, i got one myself for just 185 or so, i got it on ebay, from a trustworthy seller, and he had a warranty on it too i'm sure, myne has is lasting me a good 7 months running at 2 Ohms, and is still working great, don't cheap your self out and end up blowing out a cheap sub, thats how you throw your money away, i would know i did it

circuit city now sells high end audiobahn stuff.
I wish we had circuit city ... oh umm maybe i dont... but this locally owned audio shop seems to be real professional, and not a salesman... he actually gave me literature on all the products he carrys, and told me to think about it..he wasnt tyring to make a quick sale..and i liked that... his prices are decent too..and hes fully authorized so i get full factory warranty on everything i buy... so its pretty good....

anyways, keep the suggestions coming guys! I really appreciate it!

Audiobahn does not have a "high end" line. They may have a line with more chrome, but they do not have a high end anything. If the people that bought Audiobahn knew how much profit there is in the line and how much money the dealer makes on them...they would never by it again.

Sound like a steal to me. Great job as those wires add up quickly. I am glad you didn't get MTX subs as I went through 2 sets in 6 months, then switched to Kickers and those last about 5 years before the Florida humidity eats them out. The MTX amp should be ok though. Did they make a custom box or is it one already pre-made?

good choice, my friend has 2 eclipse 10's in his truck, and they hit pretty good. as long as you are happy with it, that is all that really matters. dont listen to what anyone else says, listen to what you like and what you think sounds good and you will never go wrong.
