Okay looking for a 10 that's gonna hit harder than my kicker comp 10"

Found this

http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0077DT086?cache=bef96be160f6c58985f4e4dbb7dc6f79&pi=SY200_QL40#ref=mp_s_a_1_1&qid=1392061030&sr=8-1
http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00FFH6JIK?cache=bef96be160f6c58985f4e4dbb7dc6f79&pi=SY200_QL40#ref=mp_s_a_1_3&qid=1392061030&sr=8-3
Don't know if this would fit in my custom homemade box

http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B004UFHXOC?cache=bef96be160f6c58985f4e4dbb7dc6f79&pi=AC_SX110_SY165_QL70#ref=mp_s_a_1_9&qid=1392061892&sr=8-9
This would but idk anything specific

http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B005C1R9CE?cache=bef96be160f6c58985f4e4dbb7dc6f79&pi=SY200_QL40#ref=mp_s_a_1_3&qid=1392061971&sr=8-3

I need a 10" that has an RMS greater than 400 but lower than a 1,000 watts... Want to try and stay under 170 bucks for now. Mounting depth can't be anything more than the mounting depth of a Kicker C10. Sorry I don't have the number off hand...

Yep ! Thats how we do it when we have a DD-1 or O-scope. Very few have an oscope. DD-1 is getting more popular. Most who install their own system just do it by ear and it is never correct because most cannot hear clipping or distortion. Those peeps need to at least use a DMM, as I have instructed before. Thank you, Markous. Maybe this will open some eyes.

You cant just use any subwoofer in a ported box that was tuned with a different subwoofer.

You know how it works but you call it the other thing ? If you set your gain, then turned on bass boost (not needed if your gain is set correctly to begin with), you probably have a clipped signal.

LPF should be set to around 80-100 hz. If you are using an LPF built into the sub controls of an aftermarket headunit, set the LPF om your amp fully clockwise if it is a mono amp. Turn it off if it is a 2 channel.

It's a power acoustic 1500w mono block amp.

OK. It might put out 500 watts RMS. Never know tho. What are the total of fuses installed in the amp ?
