What sub and amp combination do I get?

i have and 07 mustang with the shaker 500 audio system i would just like to add a cleaner base sound....occasionally i would like to crank it up a little bit but for the most part i just want a good sound and like i said just the ability to make the car shake a little....IM AM NOT getting the sub to blow other people nxt to me at a light away just a reliable sub that wont blow out when I crank it up and still maintain a nice clean sound.....a custom car shop has told me for $325 they would put in a SSL 800watt amp and an alpine type S 12" and a standard box is this good? what do ( you) the experts suggests?

What sub and amp combination do I get?

Well, first you need to decide how much you want to pay... a good sub and amp combo (for SoundQuality) will probably be 200 ish for the sub and box, and 400ish for a good MONO, class D, SUB amp (JL Audio, Eclipse, Orion)

The SSL amp is not even a sub amp, it is a standard 2 channel amp, which would be fine if you were looking for the cheapest solution. The Alpine sub is OK, a type R would be better, but if you are going the cheap route...

You sound like the kind of person that would do well with a vehicle specific sub enclosure. This will fit in the trunk of your car, look almost stock, and some even come with an amp already installed. Links Below

Make sure that the subs and the amp match RMS power ratings, Max ratings vary so much that they do not really matter

In general over driving the speakers, will result in better sound, provided that you DO NOT turn them up all the way. (my speakers are currently overdriven 25%, with no problems going on 2 years)

Either way a good, reliable setup that will sound clean and stay that way will set you back $500-700

Bang for Buck--I'd go with MTX sub and amp. Bigger driver with lower power for an inexpensive boom. Try a thunder 7500 10" and a matching MTX amp. Clean, American made power.

for what you want i would say 500 watts is perfect but with a good amp for those times you wanna crank it up... for the sub i would get an alpine type r... http://cgi.ebay.com/Alpine-TYPE-R-SW...3A1%7C294%3A50

as for the amp id power it with a rockford fosgate t5001bd... http://cgi.ebay.com/ROCKFORD-FOSGATE...3286.m20.l1116

the amps a little pricey but its worth it and im sure if you spent 15 min looking you could find it cheaper somewhere else. but this thing packs at least an extra 200 watts so you can really be bumpin when you want it loud.
