2010 Camaro 12" Rear Subs?

So I got tired of the no Bass in my 2LT. I just Purchased an MTX RT1000D 500 Watt RMS Mono D Car Amplifier for $189. It puts out 1000 watts into a 2ohm load. I have the box setup for 2 12" subs and all the wiring.

I just need to know anyones opinion on what to get for a pair of 4ohm 12" subs for the box. What are some goods brands out there that can handle that type of power? Its been awhile now and dont really know how good MTX and some of the other brands are.

thanx

Well, I think that for any of us to give you accurate advice, we need a little more information.

There are 3 things we need to know:
1. What is your budget for subs?
2. How big is your box (dimensions)?
3. Is there a divider inside the box?

Answer me those 3 questions, and I'll help as best as I can!

Hi,
#1Budget for 2 Subs is around $250 a pair
#2The box is the one on Subthump rear facing for 2 - 12"
#3There is a divider inside box. Does it make a difference whether there is a divider or not?

thanx

Awesome! Great choice on the box. Subthump makes quality....well, they make quality everything.

Best sub I have found so far outside of eBay is these Precision Power PPI A.12 subs at SonicElectronix. They are DVC subs with 2 ohm coils. The 2 ohm coils will allow you to run the amp at 2 ohms. You wire each voice coil of a sub in series and then the 2 subs in parallel. See the image below:


Might could find some other subs for a good deal on eBay, but Precision Power is a decent brand. I've seen Rockford Fosgate P2D2-12's on eBay for as low as $110 each, but they're only rated at 400W RMS. They would probably be fine, but I always err on the side of safety.

Best of luck bro!!!
