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)

Default Sub advice

what would be best, right now, i have
pioneer 6500 deck, pioneer 4 ways in the back, and rockford components in the front...

so would 10s be best? i want it to be loud, but not overtake the highs like ive heard so many times before.

Since you don't want to be drowning in bass and I take it you don't have your speakers/componets amped (didnt see anything to suggest it) I'd say a pair of 10'* might be good enough for what you want.

But as I learned when I installed a pair of 10'*, I needed more!

Find the RMS of them, find an amp that'* 100-110% of their power, and use it.

the only difference between 10s and 12 is how deep the base is...you have have 10s pounding harder than 12s and it would sound way better..!
