Hey what up. I'm just blew out my 8" factory sub that came with my

Big Ed 99 Xplorer. I'm thinking about replacing with a JBL or Pioneer sub but don't know what kind of amp. Any suggestions?? Much Appreciated.

Movin to Audio & Video forum.....



Thanks for registering! As far as the amp, if you're just going to run a small powered sub, like 100-200 watts, then you should ideally just stick to about a 200, 250 watt amp max. I'm not sure if Kicker makes amps in that small of watts, but if they do, I DEFINITELY hands down recommend them. If that doesnt work out, then I would suggest Rockford Fosgate. I generally do NOT like Rockford Fosgate amps, but for something this low of watts, it doesnt make a difference.



As for price, hard to say, dont know exactly what you want

Yeah, I don't really want anything fancy, but i want it to sound good. What I like about having it enclosed is that it doesn't take up any room. It came from the factory like that and I want to keep it like that, so an 8 is my only choice. What kind of sub's do you prefer?

For a sub, I would definitely recommend either Kicker or Rockford Fosgate. RF's amps are ok, but their subs are GOOD.

JL are really good as well. I just traditionally have stuck with RF or Kicker. But yeah JL are an excellent choice as well.

Aight, so let me ask you one more question. In the back panel where my sub is located, is there also a mid range speaker mounted with the sub, b/c the sub is definetely blown, it's rattling pretty bad...but I can still here the music coming from the area where the sub is...

then the lyrics and music along with bass are all coming from the sub?
No. Only the bass comes out of the subwoofer.
