Question of the day: What was the first subwoofer that you heard that made you fall in love with BASS?

Recommended Posts

The first system I heard was back in 1990. A friend had a pair of Pyle subs in a huge bandpass box powered by a Pyramid amp. Total pile of shit, but that got me started. I had a SQ system in a 1999 Dodge Intrepid powered by Soundstream- with an old Sony Mobile ES head unit. What happened to Soundstream.

First time I ever heard a system with bass, I was in 6th grade. My best friends uncle at the time had an old suburban with 4 alpine type r 15s in two separate boxes. Had to be first gen type r's? This was back in 03. I thought that was the coolest shit ever lol. Been hooked ever since

For me it was the OG Kicker Comps. I heard some 12's in a friends Bug in a bandpass. It was hella loud, but didn't have much down low (probably box dependent). For lows, it was my cousins OG Eclipse Ti 15" in a huge sealed box. Seriously, it was at least 5-6 cubes in the trunk of a 96 SS Impala powered by a Rockford 1500BD I think. The lows were disgusting!

2 Sony explod 12s in a cheap prefab bandpass in my brothers car when I was 13. Then when I was 15 I got my first system which was two Jbl gt 12s also in a cheap bandpass box with a crunch 700 watt amp. Thought that shit was dope at the time. Then I killed my crappy 70amp stock alt, got it replaced then blew both subs a few weeks later. Was soooo pissed.....

It would have been a Polk Audio 10'' out of an old Polk monitor series speaker...until I took it out and found that it was a passive radiator...that was a sad day.

First real car audio subwoofer was one a 10'' Bazooka Tube, and I seriously believed that it pounded like crazy. ^_^
