I had subwoofer (Kicker Comp 10"), which I busted (ripped the spider) with a bass song. The sub was good until I put the bass song on...haha.

Anyway, looking for suggestions on a good (i say good, b/c I don't want to spend great money on it) 10" sub that can handle the full power of my amp (bridged mode).

The box I have is a sealed 10" with 0.7 cu.ft.
The amp I have is a RF-P8002 -

2-channel car amplifier
200 watts RMS x 2 at 4 ohms (400 watts RMS x 2 at 2 ohms)
800 watts RMS x 1 at 4 ohms (4-ohm stable in bridged mode) - it benched over 900watts.
variable high-pass/low-pass crossover (40-400 Hz, 12 dB/octave)

How much space is there in the enclosure?

The Alpine SWR-10D2 can handle 1Krms, sealed spec is .58, and shipped w/ 1 year warranty right at $150.

I have 2 10" Alpine Type R subs in a ported box, powered by an Alpine MRP-M850 amp. A few members have heard the 2 10's and were quite surprised on how they sounded.

Do you have two amps or just one powering both?

Dang, you didn't waste any time! My offer still stands if you want to dial the deck and the amp in with a fancy scope.:cool:

Well, when you talk, I listen. No need to discuss.:biggrin: I was going to email you to tell you that I'm in Baltimore 2x per week on a project. I could definitely swing by after work and hang out for a bit. We could definitely dial the deck and I can buy a couple drinks!:Lager Louts:

PM/email me and let me know your schedule over the next two weeks and I'll coordinate when I drive down!

Sub arrives on Tuesday!

Just putting this out here in case someone else is searching...

A pair of Alpine sws-10d4 will also compliment the amp... 500w RMS @ 2ohm, 1500w peak.

i only have 1, i think i should have gone w/ the Alpine MRP-M1000. They are plenty load w/ the M850 but could be better once i get a better enclosure done.

I have a JL Audio SealthBox for my TBSS. Absolutley love it, but it more in the 500W RMS neighborhood, not 800W.

So, I installed it and it looks great! I really like the rubber gasket that covers the screw holes. The weight difference between the Kicker and Alpine is quite significant. Just look at the magnet size!:eek:

Now, I need "someone's" help to tune it in.

Sorry for the sideways image, too lazy to change it. :raspberry:

Yeah, that's cool, no worries. :thumbsup:

That custom box wouldn't stay in place, so I just took it out. I still have it, not sure what to do with it.:confused:
