How bout these? http://www.cardomain.com/item/BOSR12 I know theyre dirt cheap but they have a 250 w rms and I could afford 2 and still have alot of money for an amplifier.

Stay away from Boss.  Very overrated.   Look into THESE.  I have a pair and for the price I paid they are very good.  Get pretty loud and they sound pretty good.  I have no regrets about buying them  They were also extremmely underpowered and they sounded pretty good.  I had them running off a crappy Profile amp,  but I also wouldn't trade in that amp either.  They both did what i wanted for the price I paid.
That's my opinion. Take it, leave it, or correct me.

Yea I was wondering why Boss was so cheap compared to others. Theres one more cheap pair though that i was curious about http://www.cardomain.com/item/POLGNX12DVC. Also what size of amp were you running on them?

If you wanna look on Car Domain check out the deals they have on orion subs, they have a couple that are under a hundred bucks and are awsome for the price

I think Ive narrowed it down to the Kicker and Rockford Fosgate Models. It would either be a single 12" C12 Kicker subwoofer and I would then buy another when I have the money, or the Punch 2 10" or 2 12" deal on Car Domain. Which do you think would perform better?

I would go with the Kicker Comp 12". I have 2 of the CVR's, '03 model I believe (with the tribal design, tan colored) and they're loud but at the same time they sound good. I don't know a whole lot about Fosgate subs, but from the ones I heard in person, I wasn't really impressed with them.

I wouldn't get an amp til you get the other sub, if you're planning on using 2.

Yea, Ive asked around today and everyone has said to go with the Kickers. When I buy an amplifier should I get a two channel or a mono?

If you have the money right now, go with a Class D Mono Amp.  Although somewhat expensive, they draw less current, causing less strain on the electrical system.  A Class A/B amp is cheaper but draws alot more current.
There are 3 kinds of people in the world, those who can count and those who can't

Try to stick with a mono.  They are easier to add on to if you put another sub.  The also do draw less current which is also good.  Mono amps were designed to run subs.
