Amp - Amplifier from Emotiva. I don't need house shaking bass, so I wasn't planning on going high power. Would initially run off a UPA-500 (120 watts into 4 ohm) and later go to a dedicated two channel amp. Optionally, I have an old Kenwood KA-801 that has plenty of power I can use for a while.
Size - I'm looking to run a pair of the smallest boxes I can get away with and still get under 30hz. Right now I have an Energy S10.3 and would like to go smaller. The same cubic feet would be fine if I could put it a cabinet that was narrower.
Budget - I was looking at buying a pair of Outlaw M-8s before they ran out of stock, so something less than that ($500).
Whatever you do, don't just start buying parts without some kind of plan. There are lots of good options, and lots of experienced folks here who would likely be happy to help.
That much I did know. Hence this thread.
