dpando1 You see I don't know how much postage would play into price because everything I order is in the same state as me. I found a guy liquidating his merch from his retail store so I got it cheap. but yeah go on amazon or ebay forsure. I would google whatever you are trying to purchase and click "shopping" and it will find every place you can find it and how much.
If you tell me what you are looking for I could help

spiikey1 yeah? what site did you get it from?? coz 177 for alpine sub is EPIC...but thats in america? what about postage to Australia??

dpando1 DUDE order online....I spent 177 on a sub that retails for 340....man you could get a nice driver for that including box. Now if you are talking about the amp to power it and the wiring to hook everything up then its a little different. That's if you are shopping online though I personally only go to shops to test out stuff and get advice. If you want I would be down to help you find the best deals online

spiikey1 true. However jl audio's shallow sub and alpines type r shallow sub are 200$ difference in price even more depending where you go. I wonder if the 200$ + difference is actually worth it?

Again with car audio, it is much depended no the music you listen to + how much your willing to put in....that said i am going purely on budget an quality for the amount i have.. which is say 450$ for the sub + box

I chose JL audio and when I get my 13W3V3 subwoofer from them tm I will let you know how that sounds. Brands tend to formulate their subwoofers to sound better ported or sealed and JL audio is definitely better sealed which is another reason why I chose them.

ishol69 do you think the JL Audio TR650-CXi 6-1/2" Evolution TR Series 2-way Speakers (TR650CXi) will fit in the front doors of the 2012 focus?

pascalbp Yes the origin amp as a processor but everything (bass-treble) is blocked and can't be touched. If you keep the amp you'll not have any changement in your sound. You have to bypass the amp to get a better changement...

virtualbeas My installer just told me that the amp in my 2013 FF Ti acts as a processor and can't be removed if I want to retain fade/balance/bass/treble/etc. He wants to keep it in there along with my aftermarket amp. I haven't heard anything about this on the forum. Anyone know about that?

1) - I buyed one audison bit ten D : 549,99$
- Wire Kit 4 gage : 99,99$
- Dynamat kit : 49,99$
- 2 speakers set of JL-audio C2-650 330$ on ebay

and I had my own clarion amp. So to give you an idea it's around 1030$ without taxes and without installation.

2) It's my first time with dynamat and I like it a lot. It's like a insulator, you don't lose the sound in the doors. The bass is more present, more real and more loud, I love it!

3) The bit ten and amp are in the same place where the original amp is!
I will be giving the audison a try muh bruh! Thanks seriously now that I know it is worth it to get that!
