Talking New Sound system need some advice!

Hello everyone. New to this forum thought I'd try it out and ask for advice. I am planning to buy this sub and amp package http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item...d=180984147928
In my car i have a pioneer deh 1300 mp head unit and 2 xJVC CS-V69476"x9" 350W connected to the head unit.
Will the new amp and sub and these 2 speakers work? Thanks for looking :)

amp is trash sub is ok, you would be better off buying the sub box and amp seperately and spend a little extra for quality

Amp is worthless.. IMO.. But for the price your paying you can't ask for more.

Brands that make good reliable amps under pressure

MMATS
JL Audio
Memphis Audio
Old school Kicker
Old school Alpine
Old School Polk Audio
Old School MTX
Hifonics make sure it's not the blacktop
If your looking for a cheap affordable amp

DHD audio... Ive installed a couple in a buddies Chevy blazer pushing two old school kicker cvr's and they push quite hard.. And virtually no heat.. Quite impressed with the flea market price.

That's just a few names of the top of my head.. But stuff like Boss, Dual, Jensen, etc that claim 2000watts its all cheap and way overrated.

For a budget minded I recommend a Audio Technix 800.1 amp , Sub wise, cant go wrong with a Audio Technix Strato sub

I would suggest mbquart for price to quality! I have a monoblock and 4 channel of the mbquart onyx line and they have really surprised me with how well they have performed. And for a background of comparison, I have had JL Audio 500/1v2 and 1000/1v2, Alpine digital line, and many other amps. But for the price for what your getting I am very please with mbquart.
