    Hi guys..
    Got the box, All I need now is a new 12" sub..
    Seeing as I know almost nothing on quaility subs and have been using car subs (ach), I'm selfishly asking you guys to pick one out for me [​IMG]. Thanks!
    Here's where I've been looking Here
    I would like to spend under $60 (S&H not included).
    Oh, the room is 12X13.

    what jack is getting at is this: not all 12" subs perform the same way.
    your box design will make a big difrence in what driver to buy. a really great driver will be wasted if the box is the wrong size/tune for that driver. look for T/S specs (they look like codes: Q's, F's, Xmax....) as opposed to power handeling/frequency response.
    give us your box size and type (ported? sealed?) and the t/s specs of possible drivers and well help guide you in the right dirrection.
