I'm adding bass to my 2004 Dodge Ram 2500 Quad Cab. I have an old Soundstream Reference 300SX amplifier that Mother's Window Tint said is a high quality unit (pics attached) and could drive 12" subwoofers. What I'm looking for at this point is direction on what kind of subwoofer enclosure and subwoofers to buy.
This is the only reasonable one I've found so far: amazon.com/Bbox-2002-2012-Up-Firing-Subwoofer-Enclosure/dp/B0013N0U9E
According to the reviews & Q&As, it requires "shallow mount" subwoofers.
So, which subs would you recommend that
- are not overly expensive (I don't need the best system in the world, just something decent)
- are 12",
- are suitable for use with the above enclosure,
- will work with my Soundstream Reference 300SX, and
- have a shallow mount.
Also, given my amp, what are the technical specs (single voice coil, wattage, etc) of the subwoofers I should buy, and how should I hook up the subs to the amp (series/parallel, etc). Mother's Window Tint recommended dual Kicker 40CWS124 CompS Series 12" 4-ohm subwoofer (see crutchfield.com/S-zxCwXXBQn9K/p_2064CWS124/Kicker-40CWS124.html)
My head unit, a Kenwood eXcelon KDC-X397 that already has another amp driving my Boston Acoustics 6x9s fine, has separate RCA plugs out for the subwoofer, and I've already run all necessary wires (signal, power, & ground) to the back of the truck cab.
Thanks in advance for your help!
