I was looking to add some cheap bass to the bus recently and my budget was $300. I was looking at a Rockford Fosgate 12" Punch box with a built-in 300w amp for $299, but eventually got a very small sealed box -w- a Sony 12" for $129 and an Alpine 500w/300w class D mono amp for $149. It's very compact and adds a nice little punch to my system. I'm sure there's better stuff, but my car audio knowledge is about 20 years old and mostly useless.

Yea you made an excellent choice on the amp ... Alpine makes good stuff even though usually quite highly priced , I myself would have went a different route on sub choice but hey aslong as your happy that's all that matters right ? As for those self powered units I tend to stay away from them , they usually under power the sub and over tax the wallet for what you get , I myself also prefer to overpower subs over underpowering , I tend to lean to half way between RMS and peak ( ie : 500watts RMS 1000watts peak i would ideally look for a 750rms amp at given ohm load ) but most important thing is properly set gains and such , usually you have 2 kinds of people with the gain adjustment , 1. Basshead on a budget who cranks the gain way up and burns the coil due to clipping or 2.the guy that sets it too low and feels his system is too weak thus spends more money on more equipment when what he had would have reached his goal .... Either way is a bummer and I hate to see them

My first choice was the Alpine S-series 12" iin a sealed box, which I think would have been a better sounding choice, but the Sony is a lot cheaper and sounds good at the level that I run it at. I've got my gain at about 2/3 on the sub amp and I crossed it over relatively high.

When choosing an amp using the recommended RMS/PEAK ratings on the speaker you also have to take into account the possibility of voltage drop and efficiency..If you are running something relatively small its not THAT big of a deal but none the less when choosing an amp I always shoot more for the peak because after voltage drop and efficiency the sub will be getting around RMS..Unless you spend big money on an amp and a charging system.

Agreed nick .. but its just a simple recommendation as MOST run amps small enough for stock electrical to handle except for heavy bass notes so I lold the middle more as a recommendation ... I however like to run RMS over peak of the sub if at all possible ... My older model type r 12 doesn't like my t1000bd at 1ohm though haha but if I have my way my 1000 RMS hdc3 will see 4300+ RMS in the near future ... It's all on what your into I rekon ... I can't wait to find me a Yukon though ... I'm gonna go 4-15s or 4-18s in it on 2 dc audio 10k amps I believe ... Just gotta get the truck and see what kinda space I got to work with ... Electrical will consist of many batterys and 3 370 amp alternator

Sounds like the yukon is going to be nasty, I think you should go with the 18s if the money is right, around what is it going to be tuned to? more of a sql or like a spl?

Tuning will depend on sub choice and money isn't really the issue I just don't want to go above window line with the box , gettin an XL and pulling out the third row so I should have room for 4 18s but like I said I just gotta find a truck I like and go from there lol

I think it is going to be hard to fit 4 18s and not go higher than the window line i had 2 in a jeep grand cherokee and even if i hadnt gone with the wall it was almost to my roof (subs up port back) AND I still had to take out my back seats and build a floor..Thats one thing i regret about doing that build.. I mean who has a 4 door jeep that can only fit one passenger?? but anyways good luck finding that yukon, do you have your hdc3 build anywhere or just kind of posting it here and there?
