which would you reccommend (subs)

ok Christmas is coming up and i want subwoofers. i have a budget up to $350 max. i went on Ebay to look for some and came across a few. here they are: (i would also need an amp these)

this one is kinda expensive. but there kickers for cheap.
JEEP WRANGLER YJ TJ 87-09 DUAL 10" SUBWOOFER BOX NEW | eBay

i already have a Sony X-plod headunit so i really like these. there also 12" which is what i really wanted. i would also have to find a way to mount it so it wouldnt get stolen.

and will these work with these cords?

the white and blue. not the ones on top.

SONY CAR AUDIO IS GARBAGE. ok that being said, one 12" sub(500-600rms watts) will do the trick. the power wire looks like a 8 gauge wire, it will handle up to 500watts of power, any higher power will need a larger power/ground wire. the rca's and remote turn on wires will work. if you can bump your price range to 450 than you can have a nice setup, $100 isnt much but will make a big difference over $350 price range.

$150 for a sub
$250 for an amp
$50 for an enclosure

something like this.

amp
SSA Store - Stetsom Venom 500.1 @2ohms amplifier


sub #1(low cost)
187-12 D4

sub $2(higher cost)
LI-12 D4



the higher priced set up i had installed on my jeep and it hits hard. i have owned the cheaper one and it is also a nice sub, but the extra bit on money made a world of difference.

Check out the subs on youtube. The price increase is worth it.

What size tube fits in the trunk? I can't go over $350. Im 16 and don't have a job right now. I might be able to go up to $400 at the very highest.

i you want to go with a powered bass system the only one i suggest is the infinity basslink. the others are over priced for the end result.

honestly your best bet is to not parade around thumping your stuff. dont play it loud in your neighborhood and near anywhere you are gonna park. dont put stickers on the outside advertising whats on the inside. an insta-trunk wouldnt hurt either

go for at least a 10" sub. Polk Audio makes a great sup. Alpine is great too. Those are in your price range. i have a 10" Polk in my center console. The area is tight. but i loose no trunk space! have the mono alpine amp in my instatrunk along with my soundbar amp.
