Subwoofers

What do you guys recommend for subs? I have limited space because of a gas tank in the boot. I was thinking of two 10". would this be better than one 12"?? Also, if i am just running two subs (10s) two 6x9s, would one 4 channel amp be okay? Ive been told the door speakers should be fine to run off the head unit.How much should I be paying for a 4-channel amp and two subs, preferably pioneer? And finally, is pioneer a good brand to go for, cause im pretty happy with there products. Thanks

Re: Subwoofers

ok, get decent front speakers, run them from the amp 6x9's arnt worth it, sub does the bass now.
i got a single 12, some decent fronts, and i can't hear the rears, i'm very happy with how it sounds, so i'd go that way.

Pioneer are a good brand for there price bracket, and I'm sure you wont be dissapointed with the performance of there amps. If space is an issue, then 1 x 12 would be the way to go, but 2 x 10 will give you 1 and a half times the surface area and therefore will be louder, and will produce tighter bass, but remember, that doesn't mean it'll be 1 and a half times louder....

As EFFalcon said, I recommend you get a nice pair of fronts instead of 6 x 9's, as they are useless if you put subs in, not to mention it'll sound waaaay nicer with the fronts instead. I recommend you buy a four channel amp, bridge two of the channels to power a single 12 and the other two channels powering the fronts... Or, if you have your heart set on 2 x 10's, buy a seperate 2 channel amp to power your fronts, and a four channel to power the subs, bridging two channels per sub...

Thumbs up Subs

A 10" would do the job fine prviding you box it right, and it also depends on wheater you want a ported box, seales enclosure or a free to air, but if you get a good box custom made a 10" will be enough to kick out hard. just make sure you use a goood quality sublike a pioneer or an alpine,

Re: Subwoofers

For subs, I like Alpine, JL and Pioneer. Out of those, I would go for the 2x 10" subs. Depending on how much you can spend, you can make up your own mind on brand.

What is the price bracket?

Re: Subwoofers

Out of Alpine, pioneer and JL, Alpine would be the best to get, followed by JL which don't look as pretty, but are still very good value for money, and lastly pioneer, which I believe aren't the most crashot subs and aren't as good value for money as the first two... Remember that car audio does not end at JB HI FI, visit a dedicated car audio specialist and see what other brands of subs are out there, they won't "push" products onto you and will give you very good advice....

Re: Subwoofers

Thanks for the replys. The reason i wanted to go for two 10" subs, is because i have an LPG tank. This way, i could put a sub on each side of the boot, without loosing much space. Otherwise, i may take out my gas LPG tank and just get one 12". You guys have any other ideas as to where to put subs without taking out the LPG tank?

By the way, Its an EBII GLi.
