    I've been trying to find a head for a sub that i am going to buy from my brother. The sub is a Kicker comp 4 ohm, 150 RMS, 300 MAX and i am having trouble finding a head that will fit thoes specs. My budget is fairly limited, no more then $300 but $250 sounds much better to me. Does anybody have some suggestions?

    Isn't that a car sub? Don't buy it, car gear has very low efficiency because it is designed for a very small room, your car.

    Yep that's a car sub alright. It will make for a very ordinary bass guitar speaker. too inefficient and it won't cover nearly enough of the frequency spectrum.

    well im glad i posted first.
    can anybody suggest a combo or other setup that would intrest me. Im looking for something fairly small, maybe 1 12" under a couple hundred watts, or two tens at the most. Im leaning more toward the 12 because it wont be as loud (age 18, i live with my parents) and because it should get the lower end a little better.
