Why not the Pioneer Slim? Send MR2NR (Rob) a PM... he might have a deal for you. :dunno:

army4ever 06-05-2010 09:44 AM

I would like to buy locally and the pioneers around here they wanted 280 a sub

DeadlySones 06-05-2010 11:01 AM

Well, if your into the Pioneers send MR2NR a PM he's a vendor on here and currently located in BC for now but is moving to Calgary I believe. He just two days ago gave my a quote for Pioneer shallow 8's and they were nowhere near that price. Send him a PM and see what he was. Whats the worse that could happen?

MR2NR 06-05-2010 12:25 PM

I would not touch the Clarions with Yuli's well you get the drift. The Excelons are a great sub, proven time and time again. The Pioneer subs are a good sub as well. My pricing will definitely be cheaper than what you have quoted and carry full manufacturer warranty. I am back in my store for monday morning at which time I would be able to solidify a quote for you. PM me you postal code so I can calculate shipping.

What vehicle, amp, and sealed or ported?

army4ever 06-05-2010 03:15 PM

Its a 2006 silverado crew cab. The amp is a jbl grand touring 580 rms at 2ohm. In looking for a ported

Lord Huggington 06-05-2010 05:01 PM

Lots of space but do you want it all hidden? You could probably fit 2 ported Dcon 12's (300wrms/$125ea+shipping) inbetween the back seats, I've seen a centered-wall with either 4 10's or 12's in a crew cab, kaption audio I think, all fiberglassed, it looked so good. If you're concearned about output and space, a normal 10 or 12 on 1-2k would be better. You could put it in the back between the seats.

Also maybe look at stealth boxes for that truck. Some of them are really nice and keep the factory/stealth look. :smilie_da

i have kind of devoted my under seat space to tools and tow straps ect...im looking to fit ALL my audio equipment behind the seats. its looking like i need to remove my cab vents for shure and maybe the plastic piece that goes along the rear wall of the cab under the window
