I am still confused, but i think you are asking for sub recomendations. How many watts(RMS) is the amp you are using putting out?

How much money do you have to spend for a sub, amp, and wiring. I assume you already replaced the factory speakers.

P.S. try and not post right after you got high

well changing out the factory head unit helps sound quality signifigantly. i personally try to stay away from RF subs, unless they are hx2. but ive blown or just broken more than a handful of RF subs. im not a big fan of pioneer or sony subs either. my favorite subs are jl audio and infinity perfects.

mtx class D amps are great, best quality out of about 7 amps ive had im day.

400 for an amp? that's plenty, trust me. for subs jl are very good but pricey, heard alot of good things about infinity perfects for sound quality, and i've got to mention elemental designs of course ( www.edesignaudio.com ). they are really good quality for the money. if your going for a multi sub setup check out the 12o's for something pretty loud and the k series if your looking for sound quality. you could get 2 12o's for about $410 shipped. an amp for them can be had for about $250-$300. check out the jbl bp1200.1, alot of people wire their subs for a 1 ohm load so the amp puts out over 1200 watts (over 600 watts to each sub, just make sure to get dvc subs for this setup), ceck ebay for that amp, check hifonics, specificaly the brutus series, at www.sounddomain.com , www.ikesound.com , www.thezeb.com , and ebay. also look at tsunami amps at http://avionixxusa.com/ep/products.htm , i've heard many good things about them but i haven't owned one before. for the money i'd say get a new hu (pioneer is my recomendation), a single dvc sub (12A or even a 15A from elemental designs for loudness), a good amp. those parts of the setup would add to about $750 shipped. and then you need to get wiring (check out http://knukonceptz.com/ for good eals on wriing kits), a strongly braced box (built for the sub to sub's specs and recomendations), wiring harness, installation kit, antenna adapter, and any other small things you'll need and your total comes to about 830 (give or take some) shipped and final. hope that helps. good luck.
