Hi, my name is Phil. I just registered today and I have a question. Im completely clueless about amps and subs. Basically i want big noise without a big pricetag. I drive a 2003 chevy silverado extended cab. I bought and had installed a pioneer deh-p80mp deck a month ago. I replaced all the door speakers with boston acoustics speakers and components. the only thing i need now is a amp and subs. this is where im clueless. a friend of a friend sold me what i think is a good package combo but im not sure if i got my moneys worth or if i got ripped off. thats why im posting here with you guys. i need to know if what i bought is good or if its junk. I was told by the guy i bought the combo from that i would need to buld or have a sub box made for my truck that is made of something called MDF? and he also told me that i would need to run 0 gauge wire to the amp and a 3.0 capacitor? he told me all this but im clueless. the package he sold me is as follows:
Amp: clif designs cd-500A. it has 2 measuring meters on the front of it and the guy said it had dual amp fans built into it. i tried looking hte amp up online but i had no luck. does anyone know if this amp is good or not? ive looked in various audio forums and the rumours are that clif designs stuff is Sh*t. the guy said that it was a older amp but that it was when clif designs was actually good. IDK.
Subs: 2 rockford fosgate HX2's. he said that they were the rare 2000W max power subs and not the common 1000w HX2's. these things are massive and weigh about 40lbs each. he said they are dual voicecoil.
my question is: is this stuff any good or did i get ripped off? the guy said he was practically giving it away to me for what he sold it to me for. i bought the 3 items for $200. but he said that the wiring kit and custom box would cost well over than what i payed for the amp and subs. any info on the amp and subs or recomendations would be awesoem and highly highly apreciated. thanx
