    im completely removing the bose system in my car as its pants and partly broken
    so far ive got an alpine head unit sorted, alpine 6x9's and a set of small pioneer speakers in the front
    now i just need to sort a sub and amp

    now im not very up on this type of stuff but ive narrowed it down to these 2 packages

    Alpine SBG-12KIT Subwoofer Pack

    or

    JL Audio CS112-WX and JX250/1 Package

    which of these do you think is the best package?

    or if you have any other options for me im all ears (or eyes)

    any help/advice would be a great help

    thanks

    They're both a bit underpowered, you really need 300wrms for a sub

    decided to go for this sub in the end... i was told id be pleasantly surprised and wow, they weren't wrong
    its a quality well built bit of kit... got it for £115 in the end which is a steal for the sound quality it produces

    i tried a 12" sub/box in my boot and it just took up too much space and looked ****
    ... this thing is tiny, slides right up into the corner but produces some really deep, crisp, clear bass

    if anyone wants to see it in the boot i can snap a pic for you

    worth a look if your in the market for a sub
