You can find them for decent im sure now. Hell those are old, but great subs. I had my small ass Road Thunder amp bridged and it punched them pretty well. I havent fucked with stereo equip recently. PM ZCS626 on here, he installs stereo equipment. He can help you.

Old? They still make them brand new.

I've had great luck with my 15" Alpine Type Rs ported in my Explorer. They don't need huge gobs of power to hit VERY hard and they sound pretty damn good doing it. They should be a cheaper option as well.

need lots more information dude... what kind of music, whats your price range, you looking to upgrade or do it right first? start off with a google search and then search "the media room" on here for "subs" or "what subs"

the12volt.com has some great info as well as crutchfield.com

i recomend getting something used... got a $2500+ system in my car and paid about $1000 on sub/amps/speakers/nav/wires by buying everything except the door speakers new. all piece by piece when i found good deals.

if you dont know what your doing or talking about and you arent dealing with someone you can trust (doesnt mean someone nice at cartoys...) then just stay with popuplar brands. in order of quality/price
pioneer, kicker, kenwood, mtx, infinity, rockford phosgate, Alpine, Memphis, Boston, MB quarts, Focal, JL...??

after JL alot more shit that gets pricey

IMO if you have the money to blow go with JL amp/sub and alpine HU with focal or MB comps for a safe and popular bet. If your on a budget then go with a kenwood HU and MTX subs/amp for decent sound.

How much room are you willing to give up

Just for fun I'll spend your money.

Sound Splinter RL-P15 ($300)
http://www.soundsplinter.com/rlp15_s...formation.html

Kicker ZX1000.1 amp ($300) picked this off the top of my head, there are tons of choices around this price range and power - 1000w
http://cgi.ebay.com/KICKER-2006-ZX10...QQcmdZViewItem

1/0 GA wiring kit ($90)
http://www.knukonceptz.com/productDe...prodID=KOL-AK0

Still have $500 for sound deadening, building a ported box, and install if you don't want to do it This should get plenty loud, and play low.
