I've heard alot of subs in my "day" and MTX (not the El Cheapo series) seem to have a really good "tone" to them. I don't know quite how to exlpain what I am trying to say, but all things the same (IE same truck, same amp, same tune) I though MTX 5000's (a few years old I realize) and the Kicker Comp VR's where the best sounding subs.

I am plannin on adding a couple of Comp VR 10's to my system when some money roll around, but first I desperatly need components, cause 2 of the 4 stock speakers are blown, and buddy does it sound GREAT :woowoo:

If you have a MTX box stay with MTX subs. They engineer for their subs in particular to go with the thunderform boxes. I have the 600 polished series mtx subs in my thunderform and they pound much nicer than any others I tried. My friend has a shop and he let me test JL,Kicker,Pioneer,Alpine and more and honestly the mtx's had a cleaner,tighter and all around better quality feel for every type of music played with about 1000 watts pumping. Your call though I have all 8 JL audio components with 2 MTX amps,box and 2 10" subs. All around clean great sound.

Good luck, Christian

with sub-woofers they need a certain amount of volume(size) in a speaker box.all quality subs list this infomation in the spec list.most sub makers,but not all, carry subs for smaller enclosurers.all you need to do is the math.

well i just ordered the mtx box with no subs for my 99 r/t dak. Got a audio shop here in kentucky that is going to put 2 JL W3 subs in place of the mtx subs. Also going with a Memphis Audio 1000x1 for the subs and memphis audio 100x4 for the speakers. Not sure on the deck just yet either panasonic or eclipse. But i'll let you know how everything sounds when its installed. Should be some time end of next week. Wont get the box in until tues or wed. But will let you know how everything sounds.

okay I think after reading so far I'll prolly buy the MTX combo box/subs listen to em & then pop the JL's in & take a listen & which ever sounds better stays... & I'll sell the other & if I sell the MTX's I can prolly sell em for 125-150 dollarswitch would be like I payed less money for the box than if I bought it solo but keep the replys comming I haven't quite made up my mind yet
