    Unsure on what amplifier and sub system to work with?

    I am installing an external subwoofer to replace the stock B&O woofer.

    I've got two thoughts in my head, but I don't know what to choose...
    Either way I plan to buy the Audiocontrol LC2i and a mono amplifier to put out 250-300w RMS roughly. Should cost me about $75 for the LC2i and I am budgeting about $125 for the amp. Sound about right?

    1) Buy a 10" slim box (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...A1DXN92KCKEQV4)
    Install my Alpine SWE-1043 10" Subwoofer in it (already own this sub, bought it 5+ years ago never used it)
    Total cost is $28...

    2) Save up and buy the JL Audo 8" Sub and enclosure
    https://www.amazon.com/JL-Audio-0201...s=jl+audio+sub
    Cost $280

    Will option A give me plenty of bass that I will be happy with? I'm not an audiophile, I just want to add the low-end that the stock B&O system does not provide. Option A puts me total out the door for under $250, whereas the JL sub is significantly more.

    What do you guys think?

    Hey go for it (option A) cost effective. I'm interested in how this turns out.
