Or what do you say about the Phoenix Gold subs in general. How good are they with sound quality?
What do guys think of these, Phoenix Gold Titanium, I've read a few review on them and they seem really good. Not bad for the price because they are discontinued subs.
go to ebay the prices are much better. I would suggest a kenwood or audiobahn amp they are not expensive like jls and they arent crap. As far as subs go I highly recommend 2 10's over 2 12's. 12's are overkill and will lower sql. and don't buy a box just build one it really isnt hard. go to home depot buy some mdf wood and maybe some fiberglass if you want and your set and dont go to best buy they have a bad selection of stuff and its all overpriced. You are also forgetting amp kit which can be expensive. they go from 30-100. This will greatly change the sql so dont cheap out on that stuff espcially the rca cable. Also dont forget the capacitor you may need one.
Old School PPI 12"s, got some on eBay right now (sorry shameless attempt to peddle my wares )

I kept my eyes open for a while and got two MTX road thunders for $69 it was buy one get one free! So I also got the warrenty on one too. Just saving up for a decent amp now. I have a silly 260watt piece which is 2 channel at 2ohm so it doesn't really push them but I have to say it sounds a hell of alot better then stock.
The subwoofer setup you needs to represent your listening tastes. If you listen to classical, soft rock, etc. One 8" woofer is plenty. If you like loud rock music, rap, or pop, two 10" or one 12" woofer will be good. You really do not need to go any more extreme than that, unless you want other people hearing your music. I went with two 12" woofers for their capability.
One thing to look into is a bass control knob. You will thank yourself for having one. Some amplifiers come with them (mine did), for others, you put a coupler on the rca's going to your amplifier. The coupler will have a knob on it, this will control your bass levels, and it is really handy to be able to tweak it for a specific song.
My bass knob is almost never above half-way up. I listen to some really really loud music, and massive amounts of bass just ruin it.

I agree. You don't need more than one sub. I have one 10 inch sub and it provides pllllenty of bass.Originally Posted by xcdhridr
Just dropped in on this thread but I have two things: a) Phoenix Gold subs sound awesome. A friend of mine has the 12" Titanium with the flat speaker and 3 LEDs...wow it hits hard, but at a price which brings me to b) They are freakin expensive if you want them to sound right. You really need a good amp to run PGs, otherwise you don't get your money's worth. I believe the PG Titanium 12" here in town is $200-300 by itself, so any $50 amp would definately not cut it.Originally Posted by Quattro-A4
Ok guys, I've been doing some research on the web and on car audio forums. Since I am looking for a SQ sub and will be making my own box for them I have come up with a list of five subs.
1) Image Dynamics IDQ12 - From what I've read these are great SQ subs but a little higher in price compared to the others.
2) Adire Shiva 12 - Same as above, but have heard nothing but greats things about them.
3) Infinity Kappa Perfect - A little lower in price but have read they have problems with glue that hold the voice coil to spider.
4) Alpine Type R's - Also good subs can be had for around $100 on ebay.
5) PG Titanium 12 - These are great subs and I found the on the web for about $90 but they are factory renewed, so kind of hesitant for this fact.
Which do you think I should get?
