i would def. recommend not wasting your money on sony xplods. their SQ is horrible and they blow very easily. id wait a little bit save up some money and buy somethin else, unless u already have the money. some kicker comp vr's would be better and u can pick them up off ebay for $130 a pair + shipping, so about $150. you can find them on an online store too for not much more than the xplods n they will have much better SQ and higher SPL.though with those amps it might be better to go with some JL W0's which are 125 watts rms.

Stop wasting your time, and just get some JL's, and most likely new amp or amps to go with them. Get at least W3v2's. They arent too much more than W0's, and they are much better all around.

irocz28 - infinity, much much better choice than sony crap

you dont have to go with JL subs if you're on a budget especially

there are much better buys for the money out there

i.e. adire audio, ED, DD, ID, MMats, RE, Destijl, kicker, cerwin vega, few others as well...

regardless of where you buy the stuff, sony is still crapola, and you'd be better off with good equipment to base teh system on.

I think Sonys are alright, there you could go worse and buy Audiobahn which are really bad. But if you had the chance and money to get JL's then do it. JL is the most respected Subs.

no Pat, sony is absolute sh!t

heres an example....

one of my friends bought a pair of the pentagon 12" subs and he plugged em into a bp600.1 - they were in some ported box from BB and so anyways, he cranks it up to show them off, after "breaking them in" for a week and the entire cone seperated from the VC and it made this like EXTREMELY loud clapping sound and after about 5 seconds of this, the cone just shattered and the voice coil and spider just kind of flew out...omg it was one of the funniest things but there goes $200 for him lol

it was funny

really, I think I'd almost take audiobahn over sony, and God forgive me for even saying that, but sony's car audio line is just a nightmare.
I wouldn't personally spend money on either brand though.. I'd stick to a stock system first.
At least then I know it'd last for a while even if it didn't sound that great.

Puma, depends on the JL line.
the type R subs would be louder than say, the W0 line, but once you get up to say, a W6v2, I'd go JL..
you pay for the difference though.
it's all relative

so what would you say the best subs to get are in the Type-R price range?

depends where you're willing to buy
if I recall, a 12" type R retails for about $160
you can get an Eclipse Aluminum 12" for $170 or so on eBay, "new."
