Picking subwoofers

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone.I recently bought a 2002 f150 extended cab.I am looking to put subs in it and I would like to put them under the back seat.SO i am looking at 8'' subwoofers.I am stuck though between skar audio, sundown, and rockford fosgate.Which subs are the best for the price.looking at doing 4 8''s.I am not wanting to spend more than $120 per sub.I have to fosgate 10's in my other vehicle and i love them.I am looking into the other two brands.What are your guys take on Skar and Sundown.

Be sure to brush up on the forum rules regarding vs. threads and such. That being said, welcome!

Why 8s? What are your space restraints? What kind of music do you listen to? At $120 per sub, you're somewhat limited in options, unless you go used.

Im looking at 8''s because according to some online research to do 10's i would have to lift the seat.and that is something i dont want to do.That is why I chose to do 8''s.I found plenty on amazon under 120.Here are some links on the ones im looking at.I mostly listen to rock and country but I do listen to some rap.I want some that will put out a lot of bass when i want them too(to show them off) and i want some that i can tone down a bit but still give a good kick if that makes sense.

      Enclosure is 12 1/2” front to back, 29 1/2” top to bottom, 43 1/2” from side to side and 9 1/2” deep, 1 1/2” thick, the inside of the enclosure  is 9 1/2”, the port i need to tune at 35hz is 35.29”L 11”W 11”H how can i make this port work with the size of the enclosure. 
      The port needs to be 120sq inches but the length is the problem

      My system plays great when the cutting out doesn't happen. I have A Kenwood Excelon X501 Headunit (5v SW pre-out) 2 P3 D4 12s with a Rockford Fosgate Prime R-1200D ran at one ohm. However, this problem occured at both one and 4 ohm. My problem only happens once in a blue moon its very quick and it never happens on hard bass.
      It usually happens right after a long hard hitting note, then it will cut out on that weird frequency only then go right back to banging, No matter what song or source I use if the song plays that frequency it will cut out. IT happens with Choices (Yup) by E-40 that is one of the many songs with the weird note in it. Problem doesn't occur at lower volume only at 22-28 which is what I usually listen to it at since that gives out the most clean bass. 
      Any tips or ideas would be appreciated. I am an installer at a local shop and have been for a year now this has only been a problem wince I switched to the rockford system. I tied another rockford amp did the same thing with the parameters set the same. People at my shop are leading towards voltage regulator but the amp is the only thing having the issue. I checked all my wiring multiple times seems as good as it can get. I did make my own box and it was only the second one I made, and the first one all by myself. My last thought for what it could be Is I built my box poorly and its causing me to need to overpower the subs in order for them to sound like they should in a PROPER box. But if that is the case and I am causing it to clip why would it only cut out on that one frequency? When it cuts out it jumps down to 12 volts for a split second with hard bass. When it cuts out it jumps up to 15 volts for a split second then goes back to normal. I multi-metered at the amp both the power lead and remote lead both spike at 15 volts when cutting out. When it cuts out all that happens is the Blue Power Led turns RED. I have pictures of my build in my garage.

      So I have a zv3 12 now. Im upgrading parts to a 15" zv4 frame, zv4 spl soft parts/zv4 coil, and night shade spider. Im only keeping the zv3 motor. I am looking for a zv3, any size, 10 through 18. I just need the motor, also if its blown or working, i still want it. Id rather get a blown one for the price difference though. If you have a blown zv3 or know anyone with even just a zv3 motor, let me know. Thanks guys
