Re: Stereo gurus assemble!!

Get a good brand name amp that is going to push a lot of power, decent subs, and a great box design and you'll be set.

Re: Stereo gurus assemble!!

Well then you defiantly want to go with a ported box. either buy one or build one, but thatís later on. now for subs there are many good choices. I personally use WMD's they are handmade by the Pierce brothers in Washington state. do yourself a favor and check them out. http://pierceaudioproducts.com/ they even have their own forum where you can ask any questions you have like box building questions, woofer specs, wattage questions, ect.. and they will answer you with some great info. not to many companies willing to do that anymore.
But whatever you go with, choose your subs first. then you can choose a amplifier next so you know how many watts you will need. once again there are many choices, and there are some great deals on many of them. so let us know what subs you decide on then we can help you pick a amp to match. and as for the $1200 mark with a few smart choices you can stay way under that, with spine crushing bass.

Re: Stereo gurus assemble!!

well you can save yourself some cash by not worrying about a extra battery. with that setup you won't need it. I had a class d 2500 watt in my jeep and didn't even strain my electrical system so you won't have a problem. that money can be better used elsewhere.

Re: Stereo gurus assemble!!

That's a pretty cheap find on the subs and amp, but take a closer look at it. The amp says it's rated at 1700x1 @ 1 ohm, and 14.4V. First, your power is going to be around 12-13V unless you have a cap to add a little more power. Second, this is PEAK power. Those subs require 1500 watts RMS and 3000 watts peak. Will it still work, of course, but are you getting the most pound of the subs, not even close.

Also, look at the brand of amp. Why is it that a Hi-Fionics 1700 watt amp costs say $300 and a Kicker 1000 watt amp costs $500? It's because the Kicker is going to produce a true 1000 watts, where as the Hi-Fionics is not. I had a cheap amp in the past and when I hooked up a Rockford Fostgate amp with a little less power, I got 10x more bass out of it. So I would try and stick with a Kicker, RF, JL Audio, something along those lines. To get that spin busting bass your going to need some serious power going to the subs, so I would not skimp on the amp, JMO.

I agree with draft6969 that you won't need a new battery. I have two amps running off of my stock battery. If you notice your headlights dimming you can pick up a 1 farad cap for $75-100, or get one used on ebay which will eliminate the problem. But you should be okay without one.

Regarding the box, if you can make one your self, go for it. It will be better tuned to your specific subs, and you can make it so it fits how you want in the back of your jeep, etc. Plus you can get some color matching carpet from one the online stereo sites so it will look a lot nicer. I picked up gray carpet for like $10 and when people look in the back of my Jeep they can't even tell I have a false floor, they think it's stock.

Re: Stereo gurus assemble!!

Go with RE Audio they are simply amazing subs at great price. If you look up the reviews on Sonic electronix there is not 1 bad review. They are the cleanest sounding and loudest subs I have ever heard{in their price range}. Also you can pair them up with the RE Audio amp which is basically made by US amps. I have listed the perfect combo below as well as the review of the subs. Dont be afraid that RE Audio is a small unknown company they make amazing stuff.
