What to buy?

Hey guys, i got 300-400$ cad to spend on 2 subwoofers. I've done research and can't make up my mind. I won't be competing or anything, but i want something that will pound really hard, sq isn't a necessity. I want something that people will hear me when im far away. So basically you could say i want competition subs but i just wont be competing. The music i mostly listen to is Hiphop. I will be making the box my self. So could anyone suggest anysubs from the 300-400 price range that will shake, tear up my car and make me and people ouside my car go deaf lol. Thanks

You want loud subs,buy somthing in the 100-200 wrms per range and feed them about 100 over that (clean power) and they will be loud.

One thing ive learned in car audio is there is no point in going over 600 watts rms on a stock alternater,it really is a waste of money. Some people think the subs are 12oo wrms they must be freaking loud!,well ya they are if you power them properly they will be,but you aint gonna do that with a 12oo watt amp attatched to a stock alternater,big three,cap aint gonna help you here.

Dont even bother passing the 600rms bass amp without an alt upgrade its pointless.

O RLY?


My system ran fine off a 90 amp alternator feeding an 1800 RMS sub amp along with two PH15's for a year and a half. Mind you, I never recall having it cranked, for I like to keep my hearing.

Maybe for any sub amp above.....ohhhhh 2KW that you're going to use for SPL purposes would definitely qualify a reason for getting an alternator upgrade. Let's be fair, it is subjective. Some cars come with 60 amp alts, some come with far more. In my case, the 90 I have was the same that came with the car only got drained out when I drove the system volume beyond what I could reasonably withstand for a short while....then again that's the volume my younger brother likes.
