Need a subwoofer

I need a sub for my 1999 wrangler. I don't know anything about audio I just got an amp. http://tinyurl.com/ovwoga7 . I have a budget of $300 for the subwoofer.

What kind of head unit do you have? What are you looking for in sub size? 8", 10", 12", or 15". How many do you want? Are you interested in flat, space savers that go under your seats? (this is my preference, amp is built in these so no need for a separate amp). What types of music do you listen to? Let me know, Im happy to help and I am sure there are plenty of others here too

Don't remember head unit its in the shop right now. I listen to rock mostly some old rap/hip hop. Yes I probably need space saver, I have a 2 door. Was looking at dual 12. But honestly I want the most bang for the buck.

I have an older model under my passenger seat and it is great. No need for an amp with it, as it is included. If you dont have aftermarket speakers in the sound bar and up front, i highly recommend Autotek ones (best inexpensive speakers I have found) i run them up front. I bought the Pyles for the soundbar, they are OK but Id pay $10 more for Autotek in the future. I listen to everything from rock to rap to country. The Boss sub fills in the bass where I need it, and if I crank up the level it booms, i usually have it on -2 or -4 due to the bass it puts out. Its also out of the way for more storage

I saw this one but I don't know much, and I also don't know if 2 15's will even fit anywhere.

For 2 15s in yours you would probably need to toss the back seats. For rock you really dont need em, for rap you would definitely hear the bass and shake the cars beside you. In my first car I had 2 12s in the trunk and it shook. If you want to have bigger boom and save space, you could get 2 custom boxes made at most probably 10" at most to have put under the back seats so you can still keep the seats in. The boxes custom will probably cost 200 or so and you could get 2 decent 10s for under $100. Kicker is a good brand. You can go to a local shop and tell them what you want and get some ideas too, just shop around, some shops around here are much more expensive than others.

Alright well I do want the back seat still in. What would my options be now. I do want bigger boom and save space. Would my amp be able to do a dual 10 in sub plus some of those 8 in ones you showed under the front seats.

If listening to metal. Keep the frequency low and preferably with a single 12 inch sub.
Figured I'd toss this junk in.

Single 12 inch Jensen sub with a good amp.
I'll PM you some dimensions for sub boxes.

15 1/4" high, most likely not. You could do one or 2 flats and then a custom box for 8s or 10s under the back seat.

I'm primarily a metal man but I also enjoy classical, Some rap and Johnny Cash

Depends.
It's all about resistance/impedance. Pay more attention to the Ohms and RMS ratings. Also if going for two tens, port the sub box and run them in parallel... Daisy Chaining will sound like doo doo.

Okay forget the budget of $300. I have $450 Tell me what you would get, box and Subs if you listened to rock and rap and wanted lots of shake. Please get a setup that would work with my amp above.

I didn't think I could have 3 Subs on my 2 channel amp. But if I can I will get that setup. It looks amazing. Just as long as it fits and will work with my amp

Your amp will power the 2 back speakers, the flat one for under your driver seat has an amp in it, so no added hook up needed. Just need to make sure your head unit can take the hookups for all of them. If not, just do the 2 boxes and subs in the back. Take a quick measurement of your back area, but im sure they will, they are low profile.

Are you sure that the right one for under front seat the first comment/ratting says

I have this running on a Pioneer GM-D7500M amplifier (200W @ 4 OHMS) and am very impressed with the performance.


The 8in you talked about earlier powered itself but the 10in you just talked about seems like it needs an amp

I get my jeep back tomorrow from the shop. I will check the dimensions of the back area. What do you mean by "make sure you're head unit can take the hookups for all of them"

2 Sub inputs to run the subs. Or else you will have to splice the underseat sub into another speaker input

Woofers need space to perform their best man. However you can get a flat powered subwoofer(amp is a part of the sub) that will save save. Or you can go with two tens, MTX makes some good ones.
To save space, make two separate angles sub boxes. The use of a sub calculator(google it) helps tremendously.
