Sub

I have a single cab ranger and Hifonics 100.2 amp that hives 400 watts rms @4ohms bridged and I'm wanting to know what well will be the best sub to get for my truck. Should I get a JL Audio w1 12 or a kicker cvt 12?

I hope your short, or never have anyone ride with you. 12's take up a lot of space!

shallow mount 12's dont take that much space. Its better than the 10 I have. Its mounting depth is 6.25. The Sundown SA-8 is a lot of work on building a ported box.

If your 5 foot tall go with a 12'' if your 6 foot run a 10'' CVT ported. It bumps good.

I was planning on putting it on the passenger side. What are the specs of your box for that 10?

It will be about 2 or 3 more weeks before I do something. I need to get a little cash first.
