Default Found an old AMP in my garage :) need help?

While cleaning out the garage tonight I came across an old amp i had in my F150 years ago. I have no doubt it still works and would like to put it to use!
Its an AutoTek Street Machine SX2150 300w. I am looking for suggestions on a good economic Sub and enclosure to pair with this amp. Its been years since I have done stereo stuff so I am asking you stereo guru's for some input. Im not looking for top qualtiy just a little bang for the best buck.....

I can make one and have in the past but this go around i was more leaning towards something simple. There is a local shop around here that packs a type s in box that they make themselves I was thinking about it but IDK. I just need a refresher course on all the lingo..2ohm/4ohm, dual coil, etc. basically just need to know what single sub can be paired with this particular amp and perform right.

those were my very first subs...when i started out i didn know much about car audio let alone how to properly tune an amp so i blew them within 6 months... but they did hit hard... anything you put in a truck will bump for the simple fact that its basically a box inside a box(the cab), instead of a box inside a trunk. i bet if u install the subs and wiring and everything and took it to them they would tune it no problem and you would have any problems...im a bigger fan of JL or hertz audio but thats a bit more high end stuff

this is a pretty good find a pre maxsonic autotek. This amp unlike the new stuff is actually underated. I believe the run at 2 ohms so if your running one sub u want dual 4 ohm coils. U id get a 500 watt quality sub or 800 watt lesser quality sub. audioque has some nice subs on their website that are very good quality. If you want to spend less kicker cvr is always a safe bet.

You must not know much about new audio stuff... A lot of companies under rate their stuff. The good companies that is..

OP, I have a friend selling a 10" Kicker C10 for $70 shipped. It's brand new in the box. Let me know if you're interested.

Thanks for the offer but I see them online for less than that so i don't think its that good of deal. I will look into it tho.

----------

Is this a decent enclosure? I have seen a few on here with something similar if not the same

I'm sure his price is negotiable. And that box looks nice. Only thing is, you'll get raped on shipping.

Nice^ I honestly cant remember what i had hooked up with this amp lol I think i had 2 JL w0's on it in my F150 and it slammed. Could i run 1 W0 in a box similar to what i posted above with this or would that be too much power? maybe a W3?

Ok, The only thing i would be worried about is how far i could put my seat back but i guess i could put it on the passenger side.

O and ebay has it for 80 shipped
