What sub should i get - 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)

dont get sony.....they hit different and tend to distort more
first choice is the alpine type E
close second is the MTX Thunder 6000
alpine and MTX are nice they both hit nice cuz i know people who own both and they are both pretty clear and hit nice

Alpine is the only one i'd recommend out of that bunch. Sony is plastic, and MTX doesn't go low at all, mostly for show. Alpine are nice, very good at ROCK IMHO. Definetly look at higher up offerings from JL audio, and Fosgate, Polk are nice too, i had one in my old nova.

What kind of music do you listen to, and how do you like your bass served up? Long and boomy, or tight and musical.

Alpine is the best of that bunch. I'd personnally lean towards Adire. Shivas are great, the
Brahma is deadly.
