what should i get?

I bought a 12'' sub box today from circuit city for 30 bucks. It is a sealed non ported box. What type of sub and amp do you guys recommend for a non ported box? (i have a extended cab 4dr if that helps)

I think we should know the specifications of the box first and possibly a picture. How do you plan to put the box? Facing where?

I personally have a Pioneer Premier 10 and it's pretty nice as far a clarity and volume.

Normally you would buy a sub then get an amp and box to match... not a $30 box and a matching sub and amp, lol.

If it is about that same size, and is 3/4" material and is glued and sealed well....

Give us a budget. Sound Quality or Loudness?

What I would do, though:
