What two 10" subs would you choose together for $250??

Im starting to plan my next custom fiberglass build for my wrx. This time around I would like to do a dual 10" setup. I havent decided on an amp yet, but it will either be a phoenix gold rsd 1200.1, or an alpine mrd-m1005. For the subs, I'm giving my self a budget of about $250 total.

Heres what I'm lookin for:

I'm looking to get great SPL as well as some SQ. I listen to a variety of music, rap hiphop dance, rock jazz etc. I havent yet decided if I want the subs to share airspace or be separate chambers, however I am planning on porting the subs and airspace can vary (for numbers sake, lets say roughly 1cuft per sub). I would also like them to be pretty efficient.

I'm not lookin for the walmart type, nor something that is only for competition. Just lookin for a pair that will be more than plenty to satisfy me on a daliy basis, yet when I would like to impress a friend or two, make them smile with a GREAT backrub!!

Soo if you know of a type of sub that fits my likings, please share!

My friend has 2 MTX 10s in his truck they are the thinnest ones since its a truck I dont know the exact model.

They hit pretty damn hard and sound damn good as well.

See now this is a good answer. Thanks much...

I used to have a 10" MTX 7500 but for some reason didnt like how it sounded... but now that I look back, I think it was probably because it was a little underpowered and in a box not really made of it. I have thought of giving them another try though.

Look on ebay for one, thats where i buy all my stuff and never have any issues. And i would say look at kickers cause they sound good in smaller boxes(just make sure to brake them in right). What kind of power levels you looking at?

you have asked what dual set of 10's will net you great SPL blah blah blah for only 250 for the pair. I gave you my honest answer.

guess I am a bit different but I have 8's in my car. I am using 2 kicker solobaric l5's (you know the little square 8's) They do not require a ton of power nor do they swallow up my whole trunk but the do sound damn nice and tuned right they sound like 10's and even 12's depending on the music,. Thats just my 2 cents.

Yes, I do believe that was a wagon that passed us!

An answer that just plain says "none" is far from being helpful... Like others from a few other forums, you could have said maybe not to your standards, but a least give a suggestion which is what I asked for. From what I've read, it is possible, you just have to open your horizons.

I will check out kicker. I kind of want to stay away from JL though. I owned a 12" w6, and for what I payed, wasnt too impressed. It was in a custom slotported box, with about 800 watts going to it. My woofer after that, a 10" TC10 that I bought for $175, was by far better sounding, and hit harder. Lol that little guy even impressed my cousin with three old school w6s. I've thought about going with a second one of those... but it would be a matter of finding one, and then trying to power the two of them.

I have owned kicker and Fosgate both and the pale in compairison to my JL setup. The sub only sounds as good as your amp. If you have a good quality sub and use a crappy amp then you will not be impressedhowever the same can be said about the opposite as well.
