10" Subs?

Post by Checkers » Oct Fri 26, 2007 1:13 am

I'm starting to look into what I'm gonna be running in the back of the GTI. I'm thinking two tens of some kind. I'm a fan of Memphis so wanna grab me some prices Aeron?

No sure what kind of amp or anything at all so who can help me out?

My max box size is going to be 36"x10"x16"

I'm sticking with the boombox theme so that's why I have size limits.

Who can help me out here?

Whast kind of power are you going to be running, and how loud do you want to go? I have full supprt on enclosure sizes from Memphis, so we can get a sub that will fit you car, and power requirements, budget, et. al. Are you looking for a pre-fab box, or are you wanting to build it yourself? Off the top of my head, I would suggest the M1124D. M1 series, dual 4 ohm VC, 300/600 power rating. and they take very little airspace sealed, like .5 cu.ft. per side. They are a very good all around sub, I also suggested this sub to Ramrod when he was here last, but he is much more space restricted than you. Retail on them is usually $229.00, but the BSVW price is $199.00 each. I have them in stock.

If you are looking for even bigger boom, then you would want to go with the M3 series. Modular design, so they are field serviceable if they ever have any problems(oh the M1s are the same also!). 400/800 power handling single or dual 4 ohm VC is available. I personally have these in my Jetta and they pound.(I have a 12" version, thought)Retail price $279, BSVW price $249.00 each, good in stock

If you are looking for very good sound quality(not that the others sound bad, but these are designed for sound Q ssytems) the M class is for you! Carbon fiber cones, dual rolled surrounds, very good transitions, awesome sounding sub. 200/400 watt power handling (not that they won't ba as lound, but they know that people using this sub are going to be using very clean power, so they don't need much) Retail $129, BSVW price 109.00 each, good in stock. Dn't let the low price foo you, these are great subs!

If your budget is at the top of the list, the Pwer Reference class is the way to go stamped steel baskets, rubber surrounds, 2" voicecoils and good power handling. 250/500 watt handling, retail price $89, BSVW price $79.00, good in stock. I should sell these subs for much more than I do, but I like to get them out there for everyone to see. These will kick the crap out of the Rockford P1/P2s!

More info on all of these items can be found at www.memphiscaraudio.com

Well I bet you weren't expecting that! I haven't even gotten into amplifiers yet! Depending on what you are looking for, I can get some package deals together for you if you are looking to keep it all Memphis, which I would highly suggest. IM or cal me if you want, or we can keep this public also. Ohh, now you got me all excited!!

Here is a good rule of thumb. For good power you should pay about +/- a dollar a watt. I wouldn't go anything less. Not saying that Sony doesn't make good product(hell, it is the ONLY thing I run at home.), but that sounds hella chap for 1200 watts. But it is Best Buy I suppose, those guys have crazy buying power, trust me :paranoid:

I picked up my Fosgate 400 (two channel) for like $150 from BB...

Markup on car audio is at least 50%. My little bro worked there and he bought me a HU, Sub, enclosure, wiring kit and 4 speakers for just over $450. :o

Mark up used to be that way. You have to try hard to find that these days......

Yea you are definitely cheaper than most audio places. For example premier fx is the most over priced place I have seen in a while. My roomate worked there and got his pioneer avic d3 for cost which was close to 700 less than the lowest negotiable price :eek: His entire system cost him less than 2k when it should have cost him around 4 or 5. [Avic D3, kicker L5, 1000.1 alpine, 450.5 alpine, 4 Alpine Type R Components + 1 Alpine Center Din Speaker in dash, 0 gauge wire, cap, 5.1 processor, navi add on] He's got some serious audio.

Only thing that pounds harder than his single Kicker Solobaric L5 12 that I have heard is The JL W7's

See it all depends on who you are. I bet he got some employee accomdation for the Alpine stuff. That means that he contacted his alpine rep directly, told him what he wanted, and then he get a better deal, (better than cost)but that is only for the store employees only. You have to prove that you work there and have for a while, that way the salesmen aren't "hooking up" thier friends so they can sell it to them really cheap. When I do EA for my guys, I have to draw out a system diagram on what they have, and what they want, they have to sign a contract that says they won't sell it(meaning when the rep comes around he expects to see it in the car) and I sign it saying that he works for me. Seems like a lot of hoops, but it can save you some money.

I'm not really the cheapest around, but I am not the most expensive, either. And I give "hook ups" to all the BSVW guys :nod:
