Default Car Audio: Subwoofers & Amp

What do you recommend,




Power Acousitc 2 12" subs with 1000 watt amp and box and wiring for 150$.


Or,



Infinity 2 12" subs with 1000 watt amp and box and wiring for 200$.







I've been reading up on the Sound Acoustic ones, and I see alot of reviews about needing a very large amp for them to get loud, and also that the quality is not that great.

And I hear good things about the infinity's.

Or of course, 2 12" Kickers and a 1200W amp and box and wiring for 220$




What do you think?


Edit: Or if I was crazy, 2 JBL 15"'s for 100$. I still have to get a hefty amp for them though, ATLEAST 1500watts, and that would run me at least another 150$.







These are going in my trunk FACING my backseat of my 01' Altima:

My cousin had a set of the infinity's they pounded pretty hard, sounded real good. The jbl's would be pretty crazy too.

Also you will find they will sound slightly better facing the rear of the car then facing the seats.
I currently have my sub lying on its back so it doesn't slide around to much so its facing up and i have noticed quite a difference in bass output from when in was facing the rear of the trunk, it doesn't seem like it is a loud as before and ive heard the same with having it facing the seats. Mine shall be back facing the rear as soon as i get something to hold the box in place lol. But thats my 2cents haha.

Im currently running a pretty simple setup. Single 12" MTX roadthunder sub and amp package. I only puts out about 300watts i believe but it still pounds pretty hard. And it was fairly cheap too. Not bad for a first setup.

What he said......

Your not meant to have them face into the car, the low frequencies are designed to reverberate back off the boot (trunk lol) if you face them inwards you have a higher potential to get distortion, and rattling.

if you go with a custom built box made for competitions , the bass will make a difference. real audio junkies have plexiglass back winshields as to not shatter it.

i love the kind of bass that makes your heart go with the rhythm.

edit: i use to own a pair of 1000 watt Atomic speakers, they bumped..

it helps to to have a Optima battery.
