    Default Thinking of purchasing two 10-inch subwoofers

    Ok so Im thinking of purchasing two 10-inch subwoofers for my Jetta. These subwoofers would be installed into a custom box designed for my rear trunk area. Before I do this, I am first going to insulate my trunk. Here are my questions:

    1) What brand of 10-inch subwoofer(s) do beyond.ca members recommend?

    2) What brand/power of amp should I use with the above? (the sub you are recommending to me)

    3) Lastly, what kind of insulation should/could I use to insulate my trunk to prevent rattling.

    Thanks guys your help is VERY MUCH appreciated!!

    Peace

    Peter

    1. Audiobahn Alum10 (they can be ordered through Soundsaround)
    2. Audiobahn, Pheonix Gold, Soundstream. power: 150-400W. I'm feeding only 75W to each of my RF XLC 10's and it's good for me, but with a higher output sub, they sometimes require more power.
    3. Dynamatt (I think? it's the only one I know).

    Here's some stuff on Audiobahn:

    I have a carpeted ported box for 2 10's if you're interested. It might fit perfectly.

    I have 2 10's and it produces amazingly clean bass
    --> 2 Alpine 10'inch type S 10's ( the dual voice coil ones )
    --> amp ( alpine mrv 100m ) bridged
    --> 150 W running to each sub
    it provides nice clean sound and can be turned up for some big bass as well, id reccomend my setup for its performance and cost

    as for insulation to stop rattling , i used expanding foam cause its lighter and a hell of alot cheaper , but if you dont care about weight and prices , use dynamat

    i'd go for MTX
    i have 2 12" mtx thunder 8000
    with a monoblock mtx thunder 6500D series amp
    my car pumps out about 125dB i thinkg, i don't really remember.
    but that's just SPL, you can turn down the gains on the amp and you'll hear really clear mids and highs, especially if u've upgraded your factory speakers

    how much your willing to spend should determine what kind of subs and amp you should look in to

    Look into a couple of 10" Type R's for super bass - Also look into a couple of MTX 8000s (although 1 12" totally shook the shit outta my car). 2 Type R's will run you about $400, 1 12" MTX8000 will run you around $330. Xtant is the same as MTX, don't be bothered into paying higher prices.

    i'm running 2 10" PG subs (XS series)
    PG XS2300 (can't remember the number)
    dynamat

    Awesome sound. It's custom installed too, which makes it ever better. How are u designing ur box? Do u want subs facing the back? Up? Forward?

    Soundstream subs are awesome
    Pheonix Gold T500.2 amp is amazing
    Dynomatt to prevent the rattling

    I'm not into stereo systems anymore but the setup I had was

    4 10inch Rockford HE2 subs
    MB Quart 6.5 speakers
    PG XS2300 amp
    PG T500.2 amp
    Panasonic Matrix Deck
    2 capacitors

    Custom box made by autodream

    All in all, waste of money lol
