Hey guys, my friend need some subs and he said hes willing to spend ~$200. He likes really great sound quality (crisp and tight), but said he still kind of wants to be heard (but it's not that important). Hey broke it down to about 75% SQ/ 25% SPL. I was thinking about one 12" IDQ, or an 12" RE SE, thing is the SE will require much more power. (i believe) Those were just two that i thought of in that price rage due to the suberb SQ, but also there is choices of
RE 8's
VMAXX's
Shiva's
or some compVR's

hed like to run it off my MTX 311D (RMS Power at 2 Ohms = 200 W x 1) which i told him it will be hard to do (power wise) So let me know what you think, i'm somewhat leaning towards the IDQ but i dont know. (BTW for room it's a saturn SC2 so its not much, but im pretty sure 1 12" or even 12"'s sealed would fit)

Thanks a lot guys

Well, that's not enough power for 1 thing.....if it's truly only 200W. You could go with a single 10" Vmax, or like a single Vega HED 10 or something. Not enough for an IDQ that's for sure.

Yeah, i know, ill probably just make him get a new amp that isnt too pricey, so lets just forget about running it off my 311D :\

correction the 311D puts out 310W x 1 at 2 ohms, still dont think that is enough

Well, it would be enough for a Vmax, CompVr, or Type R

The IDQ is rated at 350W rms....might work ported....but since I think the IDQ is a SQ sub, I probably wouldn't port it.

Yeah, ill probably just have him pick up a new amp as well, but out of the ones what do u think would be the best for what he's looking for?

Well, if he picks up a new amp, what will he be willing to spend on an amp/subs total?

I guess it doesn't really matter, just as long as the subs are ~200

Well, for around $200, he could get a couple 12" Cerwin Vega V-Max's (300rms each) shipped for $180, or a couple 12" Kicker comp vr's (400rms each) for about the same price. I haven't heard the v-max's personally, but I hear they slam, and have good SQ.
