Re: Stereo gurus assemble!!
WOW that is a very vague statement. There are thousands of combinations of amps, subs, and enclosures you could use. First if you really want to compete you need to figure out what class you want to compete in then get a copy of the rule book and follow it to the letter. Now if you just want the loudest bass you can get for regular ground pounding, it's all about finding out how much space you are willing to give up for subs. how many subs you want, and how much wattage you want to push to them. Not to mention how much you want to spend. Also do you want your setup to be at all musical or just plain loud, which by the way sounds terrible for daily listing. Ask yourself these questions and you can start narrowing down your options

Yeah I have a sealed single kicker 12" CVX and 2ch kicker 750w amp. It bumps but I turn it down a lot. It's nice how the base stays inside unless I open the window or door. You may want more base but just cause it's a 15" sub doesn't mean it's the loudest or best. I've seen 10" bump bro. I think you'll like 12's in a vented box.

Re: Stereo gurus assemble!!
i want a good mix of ground pounding bass but also be able to hear lyrics. i had a couple kenwoods in the jeep for awhile that hit HARD but they were my brothers..i think i can find a sub but i dont know much about amps

Yeah matt has the formula for all that stuff I told him what I wanted. He told me what to buy and I love it. LOL I'll throw up the bat signal to him.

Re: Stereo gurus assemble!!
how much do you want to spend? that is the main question...I had a 10" and went to a 15"...the 10" was way more versatile, but the 15" hits a lot harder (thump in your chest, not necessarily "louder" dB's)...all depends on what you want. Like Nate says, my 100ow 10" thumped, and took up 1/2 the space my 15" does...BUT I do not think I will be going back to the 10" soon ;)

Re: Stereo gurus assemble!!
Depends what kind of music you normally listen to as well. I like bumping with rap music, but also want to listen to some rock every now and then. I used to have two 10's but they just were not loud enough for me. I switched to two 12's and love it.

As far as box design goes, the ported box is going to give you more bass sound and take up a lot more space, whereas a sealed box is going give you more pounding bass with less space.

Regarding speaking and amp brands, depends what your price point is. If $$$ is not a problem I would go with JL Audio as they make some great subs and amps but you could be spending upwards of $2k for two subs and a nice amp. I have Kick Comp VR subs and a Kicker 750.1 amp. Total costs was about $500-600. Also, IMPORTANT, if your amp can go down to 2 ohm's make sure you get subs to match that. I have two 4-ohm subs so when wired together it drops down to 2-ohms and doubles the output from my amp, otherwise I would be pushing 375x1 (to two subs), instead of 750x1.

If you plan on running a your subs and another amp make sure to get some heavy power wire for it as well. Can't go wrong with 0 gauge, but a kit online is going to run you about $150 or so just for the power and ground wire, and should include an inline fuse and distribution block. If your running just the amp for you subs go with 4 gauge. As far as RCA's, I've had cheap ones from Radio Shack, and I've had $100 pair ones, never really noticed much of difference between them so I would go with some middle of the road pair.

Finally, I noticed you got some speakers for your doors. Did you get 3.5" for your dash? If not, I would get the best speakers money can buy for the dash. The reason being is that at most your going to pay $100 for them, but your going to hear the majority of your music from these speakers. With your legs next to the door, you don't hear them as much as the dash speakers, so spend the extra $50 and go for the top of line speakers here.

GL man, let us know if you have any other questions.

Re: Stereo gurus assemble!!
I personally own a 15" Alpine type R.....and well, my two 10" Blaupunkt subs were much better.

However, my 15" shakes the shit out of my truck, 2 15"s is way to much man.

I'll be honest, 6 months ago, you could hardly afford a Jeep LOL....... 2 15" subs, with a custom enclosure, amps, wiring, upgraded factory equipment will cost you WAY more then you think. You can be looking at anywhere from 1000 bucks to 5000...its so expensive man.

Go with 2 12"s
