You would probably get a better response if you posted this in the audio section and by the way welcome to the forum!!

I had a kicker cvx 10" in my 2010 and it was pretty good. The camaro rattles bad inside (mirror and trims).

I personally went the 'Polk' way by getting a pair of 10' DVC Polk MM's with a Polk monoblock 1200 amp. It depends on the music that you prefer (i.e. rock, rap, etc.) but I looked at ratings and reviews before I settled with Polk. Here's what it looks like with my box and grills!

What kind of music do you listen to? What do you want to get out of them? Are you looking to wake the neighbors, or just fill in your music with a little bass?

I'm a big fan of Diamond Audio subs.

I have two 12' arc audio subs and I love them. Got them at a great price. Theres plenty of non-trendy, non-big name companies that make quality stuff, just depends on your budget and what you want out of them. I paid probably double or more for my JL's before I got the Arc's and the sounds quality and hit on the Arc's are a lot better. I made the mistake of just buying the trendy brand when I got the JL's without doing any research.

Have you considered the JL Audio Stealthbox? It is a more $$ than the Kicker subs that you are considering, but sound quality, bass, and accuracy is great! They make a single sub version of the box and a triple version.

Since we are talkin subs here. Personally i would go with JL Audio...

IMO, they are the best subs on the market.

I have this in my trunk now in the link below and this thing sounds like a 12" sub at times... It's incredible!

People are always asking what i got back there, and they are shocked when i show them lol...

Very light weight too... Only weighs 17lbs...

Have had several JL Audio systems in my cars and that's definately the way to go IMO...

Infinity makes a really nice sub, you should try them. I have one 10" in my trunk, soon to be 2.

And SRFnSNO, that is a nice install. I have that same enclosure, and I've been hounding them to do a driver's side version. Guess I'll have to go to a shop and have a mirror image one made.

What company makes the custom enclosure in this install that you guys have? I can't make it out in the picture. It like that it fits like the single sub JL Audio Stealhbox, but appears it may come as an unloaded enclosure.

Here's a photo of my install.

Audison is high end audio equipment.
Each component in my install over $1,000
Love the Sound. Saving up to upgrade the Stock BA speakers.

Yes; Audio Integrations. Box fit nicely
