    Those subs are total crap, if you want something on a budget that's halfway decent get a Image Dynamics ID series and build your own box.

    Would you rather have bone-rattling bass or very tight and loud bass?

    BTW - Two decent subwoofers + box should add up to about $250 and up (unless from ebay).. and when buying subs, don't look at max power handling. Sure you can go and tell your friends that your sub is 1000w, but what you want to be concerned with is how many wattage of RMS the subs are and what they are made out of.

    Also, don't look at Dual. You can tell when they claim that their $30 subwoofer is as powerful as the $100 Alpine.. quality is in the shits :mamoru:

    best buy systems are no good.... but if you do decide to go on that system, get the kenwood 7201. it pushes out 400 watts @ 4ohms.

    lol dude, 1100 watts for BOTH and PEAK, RMS is probably around 100W per one. Don't get that shit. search around www.cardomain.com for good subs.
