yea what dave said.....but unless you dont have a hatch..then you'll want to do sub forward port up....(thats if the car has a trunk and not a hatch...

its considered a hatch but not really shaped like a car normally with a hatch

ok then yes subs forward port back would work if you want to make the bottom of the backseat the amprack...

yeah i want it to get real loud but idk if I will be able to power it with the stock alt becasue its not that powerful. I think 4 dds will just kill my alt.

no 4 of those dd's and 2 batteries and a 3k watt amp would be just fine...

Mattp13
05-04-2009, 10:08 AM
yeah how much do those subs normally cost a piece

yeah I just found a dealer for those around my house so I might run by there after I get out of class.

also would a hifinics 261 the 2600 rms rated amp work with those 4

they are going to crave more......i've seen the 1500 series dd take 1000-1200 watts of clean power....but yea that should be enough to make you happy with them..

also which batterys should i got with the kinteick 600 work

you are going to need bigger than the 600 to run that amp....go to walmart and get the biggest everstart you can find(if you want to be cheap) if not... deka intimidator 9A31's are great and budget priced...as your 2nd battery and measure the area under the hood you can use for battery and that will limit your options..

Mattp13

yeah then what would be a good amp to use to power then. I just like hifionics because thats what I used to power my w7s and it worked really well

Mattp13

well could i just use a interstate for under the hood and put 2 batts in the trunk

cj407
05-04-2009, 10:56 AM
yea you could do that also...with 4 runs of each - and + for least amount of voltage loss....

just a noob question how would i put bring that much wire from one battery and it will be hard to hide 8 runs of 0 g in that little car

cj407

use a buss bar...or a marine deep cycle that has the threaded posts and you can add the 4 on that post and use the regular post for your car + and -

Mattp13
05-04-2009, 11:04 AM
