Need Help 2012 SE 6 speaker!

I've read some stuff, I'm an audio noob I've had a SVT with want a sub in my 2012. Looking at a Audio Control cl6i, to go along with a special cruchfield has and I want to know if it's good. Some Kenwood package with a 1200w amp encloser and 2 12" subs, for 450. I just want some good bass, So is Audio Control CL6i, Kenwood 1200wAMP, and two Kenwood 12's Sub a good start for a noob?

If you don't want to replace the other speakers, but just add a subwoofer then the LC6i is a bit of an overkill. If you plan on replacing them eventually it might be worth it, but otherwise it seems like a bit much.
Also, 2 12" subs will take up a fair bit of space (2+cubic feet). You may want to keep that in mind, as it will greatly reduce the utility of a vehicle that was designed with that in mind (which would lead me to believe it was a deciding factor in your purchase).

I went and got 2 12's and a amp. I got this car because I'm a Focus Fanatic, and Ford Fanatic. Trunk space? PShhh, Bought this car to trade in for a 2015ish RS, Still new but learned some stuff just reading and over the past week. I think I got a good start. But thanks for posting. Also that why the back seats hold forward =P

ACtually I've been looking all over for a good place to put the Audio Control, I can't seem to find one. I want it out of the way or in a trim peice that doesn't cost much to replace.. Even with that fact. I still have no clue anyone got tips?

I'm with asting on this one the LC6i is not needed in your application. If you were changing the speakers and adding a four channel amp then yeah it would be good to have. All you really need when adding a subwoofer would be a LC2i and the RLC (if you want to be able to control the volume of the subwoofer).
