Default What is the best passive 10" tube

If I get a single 10" passive tube which one is the best? Should I get the RS or the BT? Which would be best 4 ohm single voice coil, 8 ohm single voice coil, 4 ohm dual voice coil, or 8 ohm dual voice coil? There will only be one tube in the system. I also don't have the amp yet. What amp would go good with this?

Have you looked at the amplified tubes? They are actually really good. If you really want to know about passive tubes, check them out on the site. The dual voice coil tubes handle more power, but it's harder to match them to amps if you don't know about ohms and stuff like that. Check out the amplified tubes and see if they would suit your needs. If not, ask more specific questions, please.

Well i have the RS108dv and an EL260 amplifier, and it sounds very good, the amplified are great but they only have about 150 watts total rms power, the RS passive have 500 max and 250 rms about, you always cut the max power in half and thats about what they run RMS. My amp is from bazooka also and it runs 300 max and roughly 150 rms @ 4 ohms bridged. My tube sub and amp are for sale, but they will sound great together. Basically passive run more power and the amplified are for expanding most factory systems for bass. I wouldn't recomend the 8 ohm because there is stuff with connecting the voice coils u need to do but the 4 ohm would work great. Rule of thumb is you can either double or cut in half the ohms, thats how you see if the amp and subs will run stable together. Some amps are stable at 2 ohms but most are at 4, some even are at 1 ohm. the less ohms the more power.
