Default Single cab sub: Done!

After looking through the craigslist for about a month, I decided it was time to start buying the pieces for the build. The two killer deals were the Probox and the sub.

Goal: Less than $200

Items purchased:

Used (nearly new) JBL GT5-12 Sub: $30
Used Kicker ZX 200.2 Amp: $50
New 112-40SPB Probox: $50
New Scosche Line-Out Converter: $12
New Scosche 10 gauge Amp Wiring Kit: $20
Custom 3/4 inch carpeted sub spacer: $20

Parts Total: $182
Amp install labor: $80

Total: $262.00

The sub originally came in a very small .70 cu. ft. box, and I ran it for about a week in that box, but found the Probox (1.7 cu. ft.). I had no idea that matching the box to the recommended ported size that a sub manufacturer recommends was that important. This thing absolutely pounds now! (after having an audio shop build a sub spacer so the sub actually fits in the box)

I went a little over budget, but considering the deal on the Probox - I think I came out way ahead! Installed pics to come!

Always great when its a bargain, my install in my blazer was a budget install (~$500)and i hit 142db. You dont have to spend alot to be loud or sound good!! Im thinking of a similar setup for my silverado. A box to fit in the floorboard in the middle on a litttle amp, maybe 400w rms.

Nice set up!!

Thanks guys! For only having a 200w amp, it absolutely hits. Since it is a ported box it gets boomy sometimes, but I am now a firm believer in the Probox!

I have looked everywhere for that info, but I think the only way I'm going to find that out is at a professional shop.
