question on subs

I'm not looking fro booming, trunk rattling bass. I dont' intend to wake the neighbors or anything. I'm looking for a clean,deep bass for rock music.

a guy at work is selling 10 inch Kicker comps in a custombox he sealed with weather stripping. it's also smaller, so it'll fit in my tiny saturn without taking up the trunk.

they come with the box, wires, and amp. he said i shoudl buy a new amp, btu i'm not going to need any more power than what he's putting through it anyhow.

he's selling it all for $150, would that be a decent price?

sounds like a good setup. 10'' will be good for rock, good 4 hard hitting bass....

$70? you bastartd you.. I'ma try to talk him down to $140. I'll see what happens. and no wories, they'll stay in excellent condition. they're hitting hard as they are and i figure i can get a new amp if it's not enough.

I'm just so sick of my crappy 6 1/2 speakers trying to put out bass.

oh did i mention he'll also help me install them?

I think 10's would work great with rock music. 12's would hit too hard if you listen mainly to rock.

150 isn't bad at all. I'm getting an Infinity 12" and amp for 100 bucks together, only because my friend works at the pawn shop so he can hook me up sometimes.

I'd go for it, just make sure the subs still have a fair amount of life left in them.

not a bad deal. I've recently gotten into a bit of research on custom built home stereo speakers and subs. Granted most of the same rules apply. But these guys model all kinds of stuff out to get exactly perfect volumes for the best sound quality and flattest response curves. I must say, they know what they're doing, I built a set of 2-way home speakers based on one of their designs for less than 170 bux and they sound simply amazing.

Just keep in mind that generally the larger you go the more its going to be pushing more air but won't be as precise in its response to exact notes.
