Im running 2 12" mtx subs, Pioneer 4 way 6x9's, and 3 way circles in the front. The speakers out power the subs but I dont like extreme bass jsut something tasteful. I couldnt be any happier with this set up. Speakers are crystal clear and before I had the subs everyone thought I had subs because of the amount of bass the 6x9's put out.

but even if you had a crossover you would still be canceling out some of the subs potential freq range.. i still stand strong about only running 1 size sub throughout a car. and i have many other to back me up on this.. i dont know the exact way to explain why it isnt good to mix subs but the second i mentioned that on a car audio forum people bashed me so i know there is a reason why you really shouldnt but i didnt really pay much attention to them and just decided they are right.. the ones saying this have been in the car audio game much longer than me so i wasn't going to argue with them.. i could probably get a thread for you guys on why you shouldnt if you wanted to know..

Its just preference I guess. I like the way it sounds not hard to tune but of course more subs, more amps and a bunch of other crap so if you are worried about weight or don't have a whole lot of space it's definitely not the way to go.

A neon really only needs a good 10" to sound good. Anything more is really overkill!

240w Headunit??? probably 4*30wrms, If you want a decent system, you will need good 6"9" and an amp,, And when it comes to an audio install weight is good, A good amp is a Heavy amp!!!

My self im going BIG, 2 12" kicker L5 and a ZX1000,1

That is crazy in a neon. I had an Xplod 12" and a 500 watt Xplod amp and I thought it was gonna tear my car apart. There is a such thing as too much bass.

Thats why my system is gone. I realized I like knowing what Im listening to and what they are saying.

^ not if your a bass head like I. Also if you match up your front components correctly you can "listen to what they are saying"

Heres what I was rockin in my old neon years ago. Still have her but dont have the heart to weigh down my current car with this woofer and the GARGANTUAN 6 cubic feet box it needs.

Some pics, Cast Iron frame, TWIN spiders. Two voice coils. 1600 watts RMS. You can even adjust the upper spyder for high excursion (spl) or tighten it up for sound quality.

in my daily driver i have a dual ported bandpass with a set of subs from american.. sounds good at 1000watts. i also run rockfordfosgates in the rear and a set of high end pioneers in the fron. i can crank it all the way up with no distortion and hear every word they say........ the neon right now is supporting a flip out tv but it has no speakers in it as thats how i bought it. i will be buying memophis speakers for it as i think their warrentie program beats all plus i love their subs.. i got a 10 memphis pro to go init. i like bass hard hitting bass but not over kill
