Ok, I sat down, did some research, and I found what I think may be some good sub/amp combos. I got prices (from both retail stores and internet) and have compiled a list. Someone, PLEASE confirm this and add to it. Basically, I want to know how accurate this list is. I made sure all internet sales came with some sort of 1 year warranty at the least. So, with cost in mind, which one is really the best for techno type music?
Orion H2 - $450/10" - .8 or 1 ft^3 - 1200W RMS - 2/4 DVC Orion 2500D - New Ebay $700; $1200 at store
Adire system: ~$1400 RE System: ~$1850 ID Max System: ~$1500-$2000 JL Audio system: ~$1850-$2100 Orion System: ~$1600-$2100
A "system" consists of 2 10" subs and an amp
All Subwoofer RMS values are the values that I would run to the speaker, I know they can take more, but these RMS's I listed here should be enough to get the sub at full excursion without significant over heatage/stress on suspension.
If anyone knows of a better amp to match the speaker, PLEASE post here. Just post brand, model, price, where I can buy it from for that price.
All of those combos would sound amazing. However, I definitely would not recommend buying from ebay or anywhere online for that matter. Especially since you are going to be spending that much money. BTW, almost all stores will lower their asking price quite a bit. When I was searching for my subs (2 diamond M6 mkII 10d4's), everyone was asking $340. However, when I called them up and asked for their lowest price it was almost always around 220. I eventually found a guy that got it for me through diamond for 175, which was only $20 more than any of the ebay auctions.
Just spent another hour at a car stereo store, got a qoute for an entire JL Audio system. The system consists of 2 10W7's, 1 1000/1 amp, 1 300/4 amp, 1 set of 5 1/4 Comps and 1 set of 6 1/2 2 ways, Eclipse CD8454 HU. Including wiring, it came to $4K. Heres the speaker/amp breakdown:
