Now wut kind of bass are u hoping to achieve? Personally i don't like plexi because bass tends to hit hard. Because i have 2 subs, i have a sealed enclosure. It gives a more rumble and loose bass. But anyone will tell u that it's best to hear it for yourself

12" IDQ or W3 mated with a JBL 300.1 or double each.


im not sure if JBL still made the powervalve amps...but i recommend this because ive had a similar setup for quite a while, and have no complaints...theres probably better...but thats my opinion.

I only have the sub, no amp or box yet. I want somethign to sound good but also look good because it's going to be a custom trunk, like i already said my sub has 500 Watt RSM, max power is 1000Watt, how do i know what sub is right for it?
