Hey guys... figure this would be a perfect place to ask about some audio stuff ;)

Ok what do you think of these subs, quality wise?
http://www.polkaudio.com/car/product.php?name=mm124

And what one or two of there amplifiers would be able to power 2 of those subs?

Also, what subs/amps would you suggest, I would like to keep it all to one brand name and for it not to be all about sound but it still should be one of the main things, cause I want them to look good as well. Also, I am wanting to work in a $700.00 budget.

not a fan of the whole audiobahn chromed out flame look.

i dont see polk as being that "great" for car audio. . . but i know that i wouldn't spend 529$ for their c500.1 . . . seems like too much atleast for polk ? .. . you could get a JL 500/1 for cheaper . .. .

Anything that says "Type R" doesn't own anything. Some one sent me a song that had a kid saying "it's not a fast car if it ain't a type R." The only thing "Type R" is the best at is getting laughs. :)

Alpine has some good stuff, but their subs aren't anything to go crazy over. They are decent at a decent price. But there are far better subs out there for the sub $200 range that will stomp all over the Alpine subs.

As for the Polk subs, they are just too overpriced and aren't the best choice.

isnt there a problem with the W7s where you have to have the JL amp in order to match the ohm onload since its set at 1.5 instead of 2ohms or 4 ohms?

Yes , you wouldn't need to , but for the oh powerful W7s you do cause they are set at 1.5 ohm voice coils. And JL is the only company with a 1.5 ohm amp.

I had a w7 12. I just used a Mono Kenwood amp. No problems.

For a sub with an ohm load of 1.5, any amp that is stable down to 1-ohm mono will work. There is no truth to a JL sub requiring a JL amp.
