    Not sure what amp..

    Can somebody tell me what the best Amp would be to power 2 of these http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1099396539194
    that is less than 300 dollars? i'd like it to be from bestbuy.com because that's where i'm getting everything else.

    thanks

    please reconsider... bestbuys stuff are overpriced and are mostly crap.... try an ascendant audio assassin, or a alpine type r....

    also you can get orion, phoenix gold, zed audio, jbl and hifonics to power the sub, they have great bang for the buck amps. look here for stuff

    Re: Not sure what amp..

    well then what would be a good amp for under 300 dollars that could power 2 alpine type-R's? its pretty much the same question i guess. i'd still like to stick with bestbuy regardless of the pricing. thx though

    umm... this is a hard one, good choice on the type r's though

    you sure this doesn't change your mind?

    and for the amp.. i wouldn't know what to tell you, i wouldn't buy any that bestbuy is offering... the only one worth considering is the infinity...

    Re: Not sure what amp..

    Well... i think best buy will install for free if you buy everything there. correct me if im wrong. so thats pretty much the reason i wanna buy from them. unless its cheaper to just pay for the install but buy the parts cheaper online? idk... Do you have a link to the infinity you're talking about?
    thx

    ok i'll help you out, but first you have to tell me the following

    what is your budget? (don't forget wiring and battery and big 3)

    what are you concerned with? sound quality or spl (loudness)?

    what kind of music so you listen to most?

    do you want 1 or 2 subwoofers?

    are you comfortable with cutting a hole in your door to mount a tweeter?

    Do you have average technical skill? (connect your tv, computer speakers, connecting computer?)

    If you answer these we can better help you make a good system

    Also I did my first install myself when i was 16, and i have to admit, it was pretty hard. But it was one of the best moments of my life when i finally finished it. I felt the rush that many here feel, diy is the way to go, trust me.

    and heres a good thing to go by, do not buy from a company that mainly advertise it's peak power... they are crap. do not buy from companies that have stuff like 2000 rms for $150, they are crap...

    i would suggest you get this, good quality, cheap, reliable, and great power.

    http://www.woofersetc.com/index.cfm?...roduct_ID=4199

    And about bestbuy, do not get your stuff installed there, search around the forum and you'll find horror stories about how bestbuy ripped them off, wrong installation, fail to take responsibility when brand new sub blew after 5 seconds because they wired it wrong, and many more.

    also like mentioned before, they do charge you unless they say on the advertisement that it's free.

    I have a friend that works there and he can get stuff installed in his car for free, but he'd rather go to a shop and pay money. That should tell you.
