Talking Powered subs?

I am looking at adding a sub to my truck I have an older pioneer head-unit with pioneer speakers. I am looking for something to fill the low end and bump a little bit but not like wake the neighbors here are some subs I am looking at feel free to give other suggestions or thoughts i just need to be able to keep the space in the cab since its a single cab and these look like the best options http://http://www.amazon.com/Infinity-Reference-Basslink-II-Subwoofer/dp/B000A6GK4E/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1331254676&sr=8-2

Any of the ones listed above are not bad, the only problem I can see is when you get them, its not enough bass for you, then your stuck trying to sale those and there not to popular. Have you looked at some of the 8" subs on the market these days, that pack a really decent amount of bass, and are great for rounding off a system. Plus very little powered needed to run them and the box of course would be small.....Another option is JLs stealthbox, im not sure if they make one for your truck tho.
These are a great opion for you,

very slim mounted boxs, and you could match those to a nano amp from massive audio

Theres lots of differnet choices out there, what is your budget, what music you listen to etc?????

I listen to mostly country music but mixing up with some rap oldies and rock
I like the boxes that you posted I am looking at this box kicker came out with all self amped http://http://m.bestbuy.com/m/e/prod...=1218190975541
But the last truck I had I rigged up a computer sub on a converter and I really liked it but I'm not sure weather i wanna do it like that again I think I might

Just make sure you get what you want plus some, that powered kicker sub would do the job for sure.

Yeah a 8" will still give you some umph but will be a very accurate bass for a wide range of music

I think Im Gonna just get 2 6x9s and put them in poly-filled boxes any recommendations I used boss once and liked them but I don't know what brand is good for bass and how do you get the right amp to run speakers is there a special one or does any amp work?

Basically if your running subs and depending on what ohm they are you will either need a mono 1ohm stable or 2ohm stable amp, if you buying a sub amp get your subs picked out and then buy a amp thats suited for them. If your going subs start a new thread on the ones you buy and we can help with amp selections

On components , 6x9s (everything not a sub) you will need a multi channel amp. Take me I have two sets of components in my truck, and I have them to a amp strictly dedicated for mids, a 4channel amp. There is multi ways of configuring this also amp wise, once again figure out your speakers first and buy amp to there needs....

Now if your not going all out 1500rms subs etc, you could buy a 5 channel amp, have 4 channeld dedicated to components, 6x9s etc and also have a sub channel on that amp, This setup is good for non bass heads and your just looking for a complete all around system

As far as good 6x9s etc, there is a ton of good brands, and there are better speakers to be had that are NOT alpine kenwood pioneer etc, just some of the brands I would look into are CDT , DC , DD etc, there really is a ton of good speakers out there. If you go to caraudio DOT com , those guys can really point you in a good direction , just tell them your budget and what your trying to acomplish
