Im in search of a sub system that cost around $200-250. I know thats cheap but its all I can afford. I like alot of bass and was in search of one or two 12" subwoofers and an amp. My only preference to the subwoofers are that its new, and they are nothing my friends can give me crap about like an insignia or something, the amplifier I really dont care about as much as long as its putting power to the subwoofers. I was looking at a kicker sub at ciruit city http://www.circuitcity.com/ssm/Kicker-12-Comp-Subwoofer-05C124-/sem/rpsm/oid/117479/catOid/-13093/rpem/ccd/productDetail.do and was wondering if it was an ok deal. Thanks for the help in advance.

good sub for a good price, i have a friend with 2 12's exactly like these and they are great.   make sure you get DUAL 4 OHM voice coils if your gonna go with one amp, so you can run them at 2 ohms, im guessing a mono amp is what your going for?? do you have any idea what im talking about??

alright, just checking, but yah those subs are great for the price, but if you were to spend pretty much the same price and go for the 2 10" comp VR's, i think it will be even more impressive. they are excellent subs, they can handle twice as much as those 12's and they require less space, which is always good. justa  thought tho

That would be a good deal if I could find a deal on a 2 channel amplifier that could put out about 600 watts rms for a decent price. If I could I'd definitely buy the 2 10" kickers.

you wont need a 2 channel amp if you wire them right, buy 2 dual 2 ohm voice coil subs and they will present a 2 ohm load if you wire the voice coils in series and then wire the subs parallel

$150 give or take, I know that cuts down on choices so if that doesnt work out I could just go with the single 12" Kicker that requires 150 watts rms of power. If there are other subwoofers in that price range you recommend Im still in the decision phase so dont be afraid to mention any.

sounddomain has some 2-for deals for the Rockford Fosgate subs: http://www.cardomain.com/item/ROCP112S82PAK 

I put 2 of the 10 inch rf P110S4's in my bro's car, with a Power Acoustik 300wrms amp and they sound great.
