Got my enclosed sub box made and reinforced. Picked up an Alpine PDX1.600 on craigslist and now need a sub. Dont know much about em, never bought one before. Was thinking about:

JL Audio 10W6
Alpine Type-R SWR-1042D

These seem to be top brands. The Alpine is around $110 and the JL is about $180. I need some guidance here guys, I know there's a ton of stereo knowledge out on this board. I dont really want to spend more than $150, so the Alpine is looking better and better - anyone have one? Is the JL way better?

Please feel free to weigh in. All advice/guidance greatly appreciated.

Saying they all work the same is like saying all wake board boats produce the same wake.

Every sub manufacturer designs their sub for a different sound, and with different power requirements in mind, as well as different enclosure volumes to achieve that desired sound. But with enough searching, you will find subs that require about the same power and recommended enclosure volume.

As Polarbill pointed out, It's always better to exceed and amp's rated RMS, by a bit, then to be underpowered.
