    Hey I know very little about car audio and I was looking to upgrade my bass. Since my knowledge on the subject is so little, after some lurking on the forum/cruthfield, I am lost between these three powered subs...

    (will this even fit behind the seats)

    I hope my research on these forums didn't amount to a complete waste, but out of these three which do yall think will be the best all around sub?
    And if it matters, I will be pairing it with this HU...

    (Good choice???)

    Any answers would be a huge help. Thanks

    First off, you say "upgrade your bass." do you have a factory sub already or no? I know that you're probably not looking for a lot of bass, but adding any of these three subs will probably add very very little bass to your ride. I would go with a shallow mount sub that is meant to fit behind a seat with a bigger box and external amp.

    Or you can listen to this guy. I've never heard any of these subs so I cant really say much about them but I cant tell you that a bigger box w/ external amplifier will sound better.
    Range 44 has experience with them though so you should talk to him about it. it just depends on what kind of music you're wanting to listen to.

    What about this one...it's 112 bucks...and it has good reviews from buyers...worth a shot!?.

    14" high, and 12" wide...you can throw it in your footwell (behind driver/pass. seat) and toss a towel over it.

    [Heck, I might buy one just to fill-in midbass until I can put together a modestly powered system.:) That price is ridonkulous; and I wouldn't feel guilty for dropping $112 if it turned out to be a p.o.s.:cool:]

    [3 year warranty for just over $100...sweet!]
