freemind SGT,

Mess around with this for awhile, http://www.the12volt.com/caraudio/wo...igurations.asp

It will help.

02Zetechse Alaskan is right, Its easier to build to a budget than to give u suggestions without a budget in mine , Ohms is something that you just learn , try to wire ur sub each way and see how the sounds arr different

Amp : Mb Quart Onx1.1500 (true power ratings) 1000@2 Ohms x 1 channel
Also stable at 1 ohm at 1500 rms x 1 channel for future expansion

Sub : Sundown SA -15 Dual 4 ohm sub wired to a 2 ohm load for a real life 500-750 rms

Or a Obsidian audio Dual 4 ohm 15 wires for 2 ohms , 750-800 rms


Headunit : Upgrade to atleast a Pioneer with a pair of 4 volt Preouts ( rca connectors 1 for mids/highs amp , the other to the subwoofer amp ) and atleast a 5 band Equalizer for the cleaner sound all around . High pass filter optional but recommended.

Box: 3 routes here really, a high quality prefabricated box around 3.5-4 cubic feet in volume . Build a custom box (requires a good bit of reading up ) , search Craigslist for someone selling a custom box fitting your needs and that will fit in your car .


and of course, proper wiring,fusing, and all other safety goodies


My record is 1.5 miles from being heard to being seen ;)
