I already have the box worked out. They will fit no problem. 4 10s firing forward with room for 6" aero.
The sa 10's only call for 1.0cuft on their rms power and you could easily get away with .8 with the power you are going to be running... That 4300rms is really going to be pushing those stratos... I think too hard. I would go with either SA's or ZV3's. Or actually A perfect match for your amp would be 4 of sundowns new X series. They are currently on preorder and are 1250rms each. You could run three of them in 10 or 12 and it would be sickkkk. Audio Technix is a great company and I order all of my wire from Coleman and Was going to preorder the 1200.1 and two stratos from them before I went this sundown route.

Im not going to running the full 4300 to the stratos. I just really liked the AQ3500 and want another one.

The Stratos are so cheap and still can take some power. Cant beat them for $100 each. They will be in .8 cubes each and tune to 30 hz. Staggered firing forward with 6" aero.

I have sundown SAs in my lightning. Great subs. Just want to try the ATs.

Yeah the price is awesome on the stratos. it really is a great priceeee... It would have been sick if I went with them and got the 1200.1 and had a full audio technix setup.

The 1200 is a nice amp. I love that it does rated at 12.8 volts.

Id like to try out the 3600 they are talking about.

Still think AQ is the best bang for your buck FOR NOW.

Just sold my 4 wheeler today so its now time for a new setup!

I saw sundown just had a sale in feb for E10s for $85 each!

Between the E10s and AT10s right now. Which ever I can get cheaper. lol

Found a beat up AQ2200 at the pawn shop with a box and 4 kicker comps for sale..... Going to see if they will sell the amp to me for the cheaps.

Been searching around a bit for an amp and speaker/component set up. Any opinions on this combination?

Power Acoustik - 800W Class AB Bridgeable 2-Channel MOSFET Amplifier with Variable Crossovers



Polk Audio - 6-1/2" Component Loudspeakers with Poly-Mica Composite Cones


Obviously not trying to break the bank here. Did however just notice that the speakers are 250W peak and 4 ohms and the amp is 800w and 360w continuous @ 4ohms. My knowledge on getting the right amp/speaker combo is rather limited, so for all I know, these two could be a perfect match or could be so far off. Let me know.

Run away from power acoustics

You have a budget?


dont even look at "peak watts" Just RMS.

For $180 speakers id look at
Sundown Audio SA-6.5CS
Image Dynamics CTX-6.5cs
Massive Audio CK6-V

Amp.
Sundown 100.4 $225 on caraudio.com

Wasn't sure about power acoustics. Thanks for the heads up.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll look into them.
