Yeah I'm not going with the audiopipes. Just read a bunch of bad reviews on them, instead I'm going to buy (2) Pioneer TS-W3002D4, put them in a custom ported box and call it good. =] Although in the past Pioneer subs sucked, they came out with a new generation and I'm willing to give them a chance. Plus my amp is matched up to the subs....so all is good.


Ty for the suggestions Q.

They're ok-but not 1000wrms, seen plenty of reports that they won't take more than 750wrms...Bass isn't an important part of japanese music, an old Alpine Japan catalogue I saw had 6 or so wooofers in it-the UK brochure had over double that, so the Jap manufactures are simply making something because there is a market-not for the love of it.

Honestly, I'd look at American subs-plenty to choose from, tend to be higher power handling, better service and you're supporting your home manufactures.

Lol my amp isn't a true CEA certified 2000 watt rms either...so wouldn't they be good together?


I don't have the money for them...They're like $500...per sub....

What I basically do, is go from cheap subs to better subs to awesome subs...

What I do is buy a pair of cheap subs, use em for a little bit, save a little bit of money, sell em for $10 more than what I bought them for...
buy the new better subs and sell them before I wreck them. (audiobahns, lol). Then I am going to upgrade to Pioneer...save up some money *go to a local car stereo to get my amp tuned out to them* then after I got enough money...sell them pioneers and get some...expensive brand. =P

allright, i know you said you don't like powerbass...but this is the best deal on those. At least here you cannot go wrong. PB's website tells you all you need to know about the box and if you don't like them, you can at least get your money back on CL or something. You will need a bigger amp to max them out though...lol

The sub is ok, if you can drive them hard enough, "2000Wrms" it is good enough, you will NOT hear a big difference with an other "better"sub if you build and calculate a good enclosure... enclosures do most, suck on the enclosure and the sub will suck, spend some time on it and it will rock!
