Smile Picking a sub

Hi, Im searching for them companies that are just starting out or just still haven't made it to be well known. The ones that are still selling their subs super cheap 100$ - 150$

I got an 01 intrepid with huge trunk space. Never really put anything in my trunk other than subs and a crowbar here and there.

I listen to rap music only and love the deep bass. I want 800rms, at least a 12 inch sub. I will go with what ever box it sounds better in, but if its ported I would want 28hz-32hz.

My amp is sx650, gives out about 750rms true power @2ohms.

I live in gatineau, quebec.

Im not really looking for anything rank or overrated, just on a very tight budget. Unexpectedly my audiopipe gave up on me so lately i have been feeling soo miserable and boored after school ends, it's like I dont even look forward to the end of the class periods no more. If you can help, plz speak up, it would be soo greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

check the classifieds cause you arn't going to buy a 500-1000 watt sub new for under $150.....

so does thins mean you are okay with something that is 175 us plus shipping plus duty plus brokerage plus taxes???? because you have to take all of that into account when ordering online that 175 shipped with ups will very easily be 250 by the time its in your hands...

If your willing to get into the 200 dollar area you'll be able to find a lot of stuff locally that while suit your needs

No man I am definetely not ok with the best choice I've found
But this might of been a good choice if they were in Canada.
Well i have been looking for some small companies locally and found nothing... I even called a few car audio shops(expensive), tried to get some info out of them about other companies but they acted like they don't know.

Why is everything cheap found in US ? What about Canada ? Don't know the main reason but one of the reasons is definetely lack of advertisement.

mach 5 maw-15 $115 shipped new. I'm not sure if you can still order them direct, good Canadian company and supposed to be able to handle more than rated so it should work well for you.
