Assuming you are DIYing, ....

If you are set at $100 for the whole sub, look at one of Bill FItzmaurice's tubas. I built an autotuba a few years ago ($30 for the driver, $20 for a sheet of cheap 1/2" "Home Despot" plywood ). You should be able to get a cheap 70-100 watt plate amp for about $50 if you look / wait. Add a couple of dollars for glue. Very good for the price and quite efficient. Doesn't go as low as my 17Hz shiva sonotube, but uses less space and has better punch

Are car subs really anygood for home use?? I think car subs are build more for quantity then quality. They play loud and low but dont sound very good. I guess for home theater that could be good, but im not so sure for music use?

There is also a 10" version for a little more than $100.

I would say that the build quality of some are excelent, mass production and huge demand has brought the prices down, Lets face it that there are many more people and dollars in the diy car audio marketplace than the home market.

Finding out the specs can be impossible on many models. But to some degree a speaker is just a speaker and the box is what makes the difference. Marketing is just marketing. As for heavy cones, low resonance , large xmas and expressly designed for small boxes, there are some great drivers out there, as in the home market, quality should never be taken for granted!

Try and you may be very suprised, most sub amps are 4 ohm. Cars ironically enough, are too small to have a true deep bass note be created within them, thats why you hear it ouside the car (all the way up the street). Most people who buy car subs love them for the shake. If used at home and in a much bigger space I find that they can sound very natural.

I currently use a 12" car speaker in a 8' sonotube pipe TL design, which sounds great for music and shakes the house with a dvd. would be close to budget @ A$150 =us$120 including amp.
