Single sub installs - Page 2 - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


Audio (and aftermarket electronics) This is your place for alarms, remote starters, to brag about your system, exaggerate your db levels, or simply ask questions for stock or aftermarket audio. No Flames! (except from roasted amps)

corvettecrazy, I like the way yours came out. It allows subs, and decent box space, and allows functionality of the car'* pass through and spare tire access. Nicely done. If I was to add subs, I might want it done your way. I wouldn't mind seeing the boxes mounted higher, maybe to vent through the rear dash.

What kind of music do you listen to? Sound quality sounds like it'* your number 1 concern, since you don't need to blow out your ears. A good sealed box can fill these goals to the letter.

Generally a 12" will hit lower then a comprable 10". A sealed box with a good mid range priced 12" driver would be perfect with a good amp. I'd suggest something like a JL 12w3, Alpine Type E or R, Infinity Kappa, an Adire Audio, etc

I don't know if there is a Alpine Type * sub, but the 5-1/4 Alpine Type *'* I have are sweet -can't wait until I have another vehicle to put them in -not puttin em in the 90 SSE -it'* staying pretty much stock.
Otherwise, for a nice cheap sub the Infinity Reference Series is an affordable unit.

Others of interest: Diamond Audio, Focal (a litte more spendy even for the entry level), Kicker, and Eclipse. There'* more but that'* all I can think of for now.

As for the box, a sealed box of approx. 1 cu. ft. should be fine.

I have a 1.5 Cu. ft. box for my 12" Infinity and I am running about 400 WRMS to it -sounds great, not over-bearing unless I really crank the volume and gain control on the amp, but it really sounds good with Metallica'* *&M album (you'll fall in love with this album all over again).

Can't stand RAP.........other than that I listen to just about anything. Classic rock and XM channel 41 "The Boneyard" are what I listen to the most.
Looking for a 5 channel to run everything. I've been thinking either Memphis,Kicker or Hifonics. Not sure about the components yet but the sub will prolly be Kicker.

Arc Audio 5150 is a killer 5 channel or a Memphis Belle
