i'd like to add this sub which one would you recommend for under 200$ (shipping included)

I am not quite sure that I understand how active and passive subs works. This one is a passive because I already have an Amp so i thought it would be better.
Also do you need I might need a capacitor ?

Btw I live in Canada, so I can't use US only website such as Amazon.com :|
Ebay seems to offer great prices, Sonicelectronix shipping is very costly so it is not as good :|

help me guys smile.gif

Give them a look. That is a good driver. Great engineering and in Canada. Can you shop at partsexpress.com? If so, look at the Dayton subs. The HO line is great though I would stick with the ten inch. The ultra max line is getting great reviews and the titanic works very well.

If you want a real workhorse the DVD line from Dayton is a real bargain. It will outperform ninety percent of the car audio subs out there costing 2-3 times as much.

It is dual coil eight ohms per coil for a paralleled amp friendly four ohm load. Will work in a sealed two cubic foot enclosure or a three foot ported . Plus the added efficiency of the fifteen with a lower powered system is nice. It can play up past 100 for better sub to mid bass transition. And costs 119 bucks. Currently.

Good luck


I can throw out some car audio branded drivers if you need. Just never have purchased in Canada.

Impressive. with a freekin 1$ shipping wow ! smile.gif
which enclosure would you recommend with it ?


partexpress looks like a great website and i can use it
i really like the one you chose:
http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?partnumber=295-190

But the thing is that with 55$ shipping it'll be ~200$ and i don't even have the enclosure :|

you think both of those would works with my current amp ?

Without knowing what amp you already have (unless I missed it!) I can't comment. I know you have a JVC head unit.

The two items you linked from 3 kings I have had no experience with.

Here is an already built and carpeted enclosure

Couple that with the Dayton DVC 15 and your amp... You will be amazed. On any type of music.

Not sure where you are in Canada, you might look at a local cabinet builder. Sometimes they can get one built cheap. You can use good plywood instead of mdf for cost savings and durability.

my amp is part of the package i linked in the original post:
http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_33400_JVC-KS-AX3104.html

I'm from Quebec (Montreal)

I heard that used sub might be a better deal tho. I just need to know what i can go for with my current amp.

the Dayton is really great but at 119$ + 50$ shipping + 50$ enclosure + wiring kit, it'll easily bust my 200$ budget :|

Finally saw your amp... Not sure how I missed it initially...

The amp you have is a 4 channel and puts out about 60 watts per channel. Bridged it does around 150 watts.

Now you can run all 4 speakers off the front two channels of the amp, bridge the rear two into one channel. Bridged, the amplifier can only see a 4 ohm load minimum. So you need either a single coil subwoofer at 4 ohms, a dual coil sub of 2 ohms per coil wired in series or a dual coil sub at 8 ohms per coil like the Dayton wired parallel.

Another smaller option
http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?partnumber=295-185

Another option is, Do you have access to some wood working tools? A table saw or circular saw? a jigsaw or router? Because you can pretty easily build a simple sealed enclosure for about 25-30 bucks. Nothing fancy but serviceable. being in Montreal or close, could you drive down to Burlington Vermont? Have something shipped to a UPS store there? I only ask, because I fly to Burlington when I travel to Montreal for work so know the area somewhat. I know there are duties and such but surely a sub enclosure would not be seen especially if you "installed" it. even without the sub in it


You can also try the bravox subs on clearance.

Save even more money. I don't have experience with them but the money seems cheap!
