Do you have the birth sheet that says what the actual wattage of the amp is?
Want to run at 1 ohms since it can do it to get most power.
Either 1 dual voice coil 2ohm sub or two single voice coil running 2 ohms
And of the cheap kickers or Rockford fosgate p2 sub

I'd recommend for one sub the Kicker CompVR 43CVR102

This should give you nice kick and be loud people will think if have two
Rockford Fosgate P2D2-10 is a good one also

If you can find anything from jl audio that will let you run at 1 ohm in your price range will be best. But I think you will be very happy with either of these.

Thank you! I think I'm going to go with kicker for the time being then upgrade to something in the future

I would definitley recommend spending a little extra on a good brand of subwoofer to ensure it last and doesn't blow and then its a waste of money. I've had kickers in my car for more than 4 years now and they're still running beautifully! look into kicker!

If your going to spend money anywhere it's most important on the amp having a quality amp can solve most headaches specially since most good sub brands have a quality cheap sub or use to it's starting to look bad now days. The glue they are using just are not as good as they use to be.
