OK, so I want a sub, the problem is, which one and what size?

I found an Infinity Referance 12" sub on ebay, brand new, pennies. Then someone ( more than a few people actually) told me that 12" are laggy on some fast bass tracks. So I decided not to buy it?

Now I've discovered the new Vibe Space 8 sub, it's 8" and much punchier.

Question is: Should I go for that new Vibe Space 8? My mate has the model before it (Exact 8) in his car and it sounds pretty good. Worth a buy? It will be my only sub.

Any other suggestions would be good, budget of up to about £70.

Thanks :thumbs_up:

I already have a 700W Blaupunkt amp, currently powering my 6x9s (overkill FTW). This amp will run my sub and I'll get a £30 300W ebay job to power my 6x9s. So all I want is a sub.

12" will be fine, what you have been told is b*llocks, its 15" which lag even then in some cases its not noticeable.

The 8" will be punchier but will lack low end, you might be disappointed, buy a 10" or 12". Get a 10" if your that worried about it lagging.

Im guessing that blaupunkt is 700w MAX, if it is whats the RMS output?

Just found an Infinity Kappa VQ (<- very important "VQ" apparently) 10" sub. Affordable. Worth a buy?

It's either a sub or a back box by the way, still haven't decided weter to get a sub or a backbox. Help lolz. I already have 6x9s and component speakers for the front (not in yet)

Do you want to run the sub off that amp on its own? That infinity should be good, my mate had one, didnt sound too bad, if im right, then the middle of the sub lights up when it beats.
