new sub

wanted to go with something way bigger. like an alpine type r or something, but i would need a bigger amp and to upgrade my wiring. 2 things i didnt want to do at the moment.

went with a type S. my amp is perfect for it. put it in a bigger ported box, the sound is unreal compared to my old shallow mount 12 in a tiny sealed box. lol

it feels way more powerful. and hits the lows that i was desiring before!

got it for 99 bucks with a 1 yr warranty if it blows or anything else they'll give me a new one.



ignore the interior. its getting redone. so keep your comments to yourself if they're negative! lol

Dubstep in that first video right? Haha yea you need to adjust your amp. If that sub is brand new go easy on it for about a week. Give it a chance to get broken in. That thing was bottoming bad in that second video.
