Which subwoofer to go for?
I have recently installed the following MP3 system in my car:
Head Unit: Sony CDX-R5610
Rear speakers: Sony XPLOD XS-GT6947X (4 way)
Front speakers: Sony XPLOD XS-GF1021X
The sound is OK, but being an Altec Lansing ATP3 user, i notice that the BASS is not that prominent... (although it is quite tight..)
Which Subwoofer brand/model i should go for?.. Sony/Pioneer/JBL/ any other..
My budget is around 2.5-3k...
P.S. What is Altrec3 plus.. ??.. my HU supports Altrec3 plus format..

Since most of u r setup is sony ... i'd recommend the Sony Xplod woofer too......thats the one i have too.....mine is 800 watts, got it around 3 yrs back so i dont quite remember the model or price but the punch is excellent.....i remember it was priced similar to the pioneer 600watts woofer and i compared the bass of both and the sony one had a better feel.

try to go for the pioneer 306 DVC one. fits ur budget too.
btw atrac3 plus is sony's proprietery compression technology. it compresses ur usual 5-6 mb mp3 to almost 2 mb.
its time consuming but worth the time.

Hi decite..check Kicker subs, gives you good thump or if you are interested check "earthquake"..good low frequency!! chest thumping bass..but you will require a proper amplifier to get the max from the sub.
