Kicker L7 and a kicker amp pack a lot of punch.

I would typically stray away from marine grade free air subs. Kicker for example is rated for marine use and is a much better sub. Make sure you build an enclosure (box) for best results. Free air subs just don't pack a punch like a sealed or ported properly built box.

What do you have budgeted for the amp and sub? Does your budget include the box, power wire, ground wire, RCA's, speaker wire, etc?

I understand that you don't want to spend alot, but give us a dollar figure so we can help you out better, because my meaning of don't want to spend alot is different from others.

Pretty limited at that price point. I would advise to save a little more up so you don't end up with junk you are not happy with.

Series wire the voice coils to 4 ohms. Not the best but not to bad.

Dang, not much to work with. I can not recommend a thing at that price point. The wiring kit alone takes up 1/4 of your budget. Just wait until you can spend about 400-500 and get something that is decent and will last you more then just a trip out on the water. I am sorry, but just can't recommend crap.

For my sub setup in my Supra I'm running a Pioneer amp ($100) a 10" Alpine Type-R ($100) a box I made ($50) and all wiring ($50) Sub and amp were bought off E-bay, box materials were bought at Lowes, Wiring bought at my local Car Audio store (the wiring is for 2 amps, the sub, and the tower speakers) for a cheap $300 setup it sounds pretty damn good it's all I need anyway
