Default Subwoofer Help/Opinion

hey ya'll ive been looking at subs recently for my truck... ive been kind of looking at bazooka's tube subs. but im kind of unfamiliar with them and am unsure if they are good or not... so i was hoping for some feedback on them and if not those if there is any others u would suggest. i need shallows due to my regular cab.. and im not looking for anything too expensive... i wanted to put a cap of 450-500 for the sub and amp thank you all

450 to 500 spending limit? You can get some nice stuff with that. My entire system in my truck ran 190-210
Craigslist for the amp
but my sub is a Kicker CVT (which is shallower version of CVR) and I got it for 96 out the door and you can probably make a nice box. if not I got lucky and mine was 14 umm you might be able to find a Subzero box for about 50-80. Hope this helps man.

My first sub was the original 6" dual sub bazooka tube.... way back in 88 or 89.
Back then, they required very little power & sounded pretty good. Now, they have amps built in & all sorts of options.
No boxes to build, but you'll need to secure it down so it doesn't roll all over the place.

For reg cab trucks, you could probably get 2x 10" behind the seat as long as their parameters require a small volume box... or you could use shallow mount subs to save a little depth.

Back in the day, I installed 4x 12" behind the seat of an s-10 reg cab for a guy. There wasn't nearly enough air volume for the subs & I thought they sounded like poop, but he was happy to show off his 4x 12"s.

It all depends on how loud vs how clean you want it to sound. You could easily grab a cheap set of subs and a cheap amp that will be loud but it will probably sound like an elephant farting in a phone booth.

I outgrew the loud phase real quickly & focus more on the sound quality, staging & noise elimination.

Check out Crutchfield's website too, great place for info & reviews.

Dual coil I thought only was for a 2ohm which is a LOT cleaner because it runs more efficient off the amp. That's IMO. Although the Kicker CVT is a 4ohm, it does sound good for the price. Kind of hard to beat em. Alpine's Type S is pretty good as well. It's a dual voice coil at 2ohms.

i have a reg cab also at first i had a slim box with one ten but it didnt sound good for some reason i think it had to do with the demension on the box but i have seen sub boxes that will fit two 10" subs in the ranger check www.sonicelectronix.com they have alot to choose from measure the back of your cab make sure it fits

as for the tubes i have one now it use to have a bazooka in it but my amp blew it and i put a kicker cvt in it it hits pretty hard for a lil 10" sub but only thing is it had a bad whistle in the tube when i first got it i minimized it with a little sanding

here are some pics of my setup
