With your amp you must read how to set up the amp and set to gain and other controls.

I would say get one of these http://bazooka.com/productAutoRawWoofersRS.asp?id=165 and build a sealed enclosure for it...1 cu ft as stated by the site.

This sub will be able to handle the power of the amp better than a tube can.

(If I had a 500/1 I would never buy bazooka subs...a 500/1 is able to easily power a JL 12W7...that amp puts out more like 650 watts than 500...underrated...I would get a much beefier sub...I would take advantage of the sweet power of the 500/1...If you want bazooka subs than the 250/1 would be a better match for one bazooka)

thanks aznboi3644 but i did not post all the facts i do have this amp hooked up to an mtx-9510-44 dual in a subzone box but i was looking for less space in the trunk thats why i ask if tube will work but i guess not wat other options are there i need more space because this mtx 9510 sub in the subzone box is hell heavy and big i know im dealing with a monster amp with lots of juice is there any other sub out there with space saver ? im not going to give up this amp if anything going will be my mtx 9510 and ill check out the boston acoustics G5104-4ohm to see the size diffrences and weight

Well basically get a high power handling subwoofer that is made for smalled sealed enclosures if you want so save some major space...yeah those mtx's do need a pretty big box.

Here are good 10 and 12 inch subs that can handle all the power you have and work best in small sealed boxes.

-the WMD subs are the ones I'm talking about

Never tried them out...I don't have the power to power one of them...nor the money right now.

But on www.realofexcursion.com there are vids of them...3 inches of peak to peak excursion is crazy.

You can build the box yourself...its quite easy and fun...I love building boxes.

Also where are you located??? Maybe I can build one for you.

I'm not a fan of pre-made boxes you can buy...I hate them. Subs need a specific volume of are and the pre-made "one size fits all" deal will make some subs sound like dog ***.

Sure there are some pretty decent prefabs buy they'll cost and arm and a leg...heres a good site that can build a good one for you.

Also look into this sub...its made for that kind of power you have.

http://www.edesignaudio.com/edv2/pro...products_id=31

Also theres a custom box builder on the site and they'll build it and send it to you...all custom however you want it
