    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 crap
    ... 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
