I really don't wanna spend more than 200. I need some subs preferably already in a box. An amp, deck and anything else I need to make it all work in a house.

Up your budget to 300 and get a BIC F12.. or a Cadence.

Unless your talking about a whole setup in which case a HTIB off craigslist from a homeless crack addict.

EMP E55ti | EMP E56ci | Polk T15's for surround duty | Ultimax 15" Sub | Integra 40.2 | Rotel 976 | Panasonic 60ST60

$200 for everything = a gently-used HTiB.

Why not try the Monoprice subs? They are within your budget.

Could you clarify your initial post for my edification please. It reads as if you're wanting a killer Home Theater system, including subwoofer, for two hundred bucks and I just want to make sure, that's the purity or intent of your request.

I want car subs with tweeter, 2 of them, preferably 12" and an amp and all of the other things I would need to make it work in my house. I want the subs to shake the **** out of my house. I don't want to spend a lot but I don't want super cheap either I may be willing to spend a bit more than 200

In real terms, how much of a system are you wanting?

In the case of subwoofers, discouragingly, it's all about the Benjamins and setting a realistic budget equal to the demands of your desires.

What kind of budget can you realistically meet?

Where do you plan on setting this movie sound track, reproduction system up? An open, great room that opens into the living room, dining room and entryway or the confines of a closed door bedroom?

It will be in my bedroom. I'm 16, no job. But I get a google adsense check for about 500 every month. But I want to save some for bud. $350? I will be playing music with lots of bass.

Smoke less bud, save more money, and you can get a better system. Once you get that, go back to the bud.

Are you trolling or serious?

You need to expand your budget a lot if you want anything above used junk off of Craigslist.

Car subs?? Really? Why in h*ll would you want to try to use car subs in your bedroom?

You seriously need to do a lot of reading on AVS and then come back with some reasonable questions. rolleyes.gif

Nice, keep smoking the "bud" and you'll progress from the bedroom to your parents basement at 32. eek.gif

Lol. Car subs are designed to be used within the confines of a trunk or tiny space. You will not get great sound for 200 bux for your bedroom. You would better off getting a boom box with rca ins. Hook those up to the dvr in your bedroom if you have one. Thats what I did..16 years ago. It wasnt a dvr but I made it work.

I want a 41 foot Sea Ray Sundancer for five grand. That too is not going to happen.
