New sound system

Imagine a jl stealth box with a jl w3. Instead of one ten, two 8s. On each side. With a rockford bd1000cp to power them. Then a alpine blutooth headunit, with a rockford t400-4 powering hertz energy components in the front and coaxials in the back. That is my plan.

Here was my setup on my focus:

2x 10" Polk DB1040 subs




This link has a few pictures of the build, and the .zip file is my cad-plans. A few other people have used my plans as well.

I don't think its advised that you face 2 or more subwoofers directly at one another. I believe it will cancel out some of the sound

I did have that issue at first, but I swapped the polarity on one of the subs and It thumped hard enough to blur vision. I rarely ever turned it up that loud, but it definitely make the sound come alive in the car.
