I like 12's the most so I would say the 12's. The 12 has more surface areia so it will move more air, I think! Also 12's usually hit the lower frequencies, but not always!
Now that I got your braine spinning:-) if you can fit the 12's go with them. My appinion.

i found 10" MTX T8104A for 70, and 12" T8124A for 120. is it really worth the extra 50 bucks? also, the 10inch is dual 4 ohms, whereas the 12" is only 4 ohms. how big of a difference will that make?

The ohm's will make a big difference depending on the amp you get!

and the 10's will do fine. I know you don't whont to here this but it just depend's on what you like! I like the way 12's sound, and other people like the way 10's sound.
For 50 buck's I would just stick with 10 I think, but I don't know a lot about Mtx sub's.

the only difference between a 10 and 12 of the same model is the surface area, sometimes suspension is difference and xmax is higher...12's are louder than 10s comparitvely to the same model and in the same application

eh, i plan to buy 2 10's. the 10's are 50 dollars cheaper. i dont have much money, so ill save the 100 dollars and put it into a good amp. would i need a 2-channel amp for 2 subs, or could i use a mono?

You could do either, but the mono will be cheaper.

no no no no no....ok, here goes....

Mono amps: Can be used to drive a single subwoofer, usually a mono amp will give out more power at the lower impedence (ohms) you run it at, most mono amps are stable at 2 ohms, some at stable at 1, if you spend monsterous amounts of money, .5ohms, these are used in multiply sub configurations as well, you wire the subs togehter to create your desired ohm load and run the amp at the...

2 Channel amp: Can be used to run a pair of subs, usually each channel will be stable at 2 ohms, or can be run at 4. Again, the lower the ohm, the more power the amp will put out...You can do what they call bridging an amp which is running both channels to one sub, 95% of 2 channel amps are only stable at 4 ohms in bridged mode. Also i see alot of people running component speakers with a 2 channel amp and not amping there rear speakers.

4 channel: mainly to run your door speakers, 1 channel for each speaker...some other uses but not common enough to mention.

Thats kinda it in a nutshell (tiny shell)

I suggest you refer to the website www.bcae1.com and spend a good couple days reading though that site, you'll learn more then you ever thought was possible about car audio...

a mono amp can run more than one speaker! it doesnt have to be a single driver it could be 20 subs if you have them wired correctly and it is a strong enough amp. If you are trying to save money do the mtx 600 watt mono amp and those 2-10's or I like the sound of the 2-12in cerwin vega v'max's for the same price as those mtx 10's. They will sound better I would bet.

hey I'm in pretty much the same boat as you so far but I've researched most of those and the volf's are crap I guess (you get what you pay for), the mtx's I dunno about and the shiva's are reccommended a lot. The v-max's I heard in person and liked them alot and for 100 each I think they'd do more than any of those except maybe the shivas.
