    Default Polk MM1040

    Do any of you guys have any experience with the Polk MM1040? I can get it for $179.00. Would this be a good sub or is there anything better? What do you guys like for under $250.

    I think you realy need to be looking into Duel Voice Coil subwoofers. When you run a Duel Voice Coil sub you can wire them together to drop the Ohms to 2 and get twice the power to it from your amp.

    Exp. The L5 10inch Kicker i was running was a Duel VC sub and i was able to make the 700.5 drop to 2ohm and run 400 watts to it.

    Before that i was running a 10 inch Kicker with a single VC. It was oinly getting 200 watts from the same amp.

    Its your choice but if you have a 2ohm stable amp then get a Duel Voice Coil sub, run it at 2ohm and realy get that punch.

    I have all my speakers in the boat except my bow speakers running at 2ohm load. Making all them amps work for me LOL.

    I wish someone would sell stuff for me! I just have to deal with the wife saying I am spending to much money on the boat. She does not understand. I have looked at the subs online but can not choose one. I need help.

    I bought a brand new Kicker 10" Solo Baric L5 for around 120.00 I have been told they sound very good in a boat.

    It's my latest trick. Whenever she asks for something I give her some stuff to sell on ebay for the money. Then she ends up buying it on ebay because it's cheaper that way and she gets a better idea of the value of the money/items, etc. So I save space by getting rid of crap and money I could have just handed her while teaching a valuable lesson to boot. Man, I should write a book. I could have her sell it on ebay . . .

    These are excellent speaker and the square pattern makes them easy to just a box for. I ran this speaker for a short bit this winter and loved it. I know several others who are running this speaker, you wont be disappointed. It really pounds.
