first the bass amp is way too much power for those subs,also consider some better speakers up frt ,components will do nicely.you'll also need to do the big 3 on the electrical and maybe replace the stock battery with a agm battery

ok what amp for those subs? Will this one be better for those subs?
ROCKFORD FOSGATE R500-1 PRIME
I dont know a lot about this stuff trying not to spend a crap ton but want it to sound a lot better then it does now stock.
id rather not do components they seem much more diffcult to wire and put in.
battery is a brand new interstate plus it is a diesel so i have 2 batteries if that makes a difference.
what else needs to be done on the electrical side of things?

a 500 watt rms amp should be fine,or get better subs ,the components are not that hard to install,also the big 3 and your good

ok thank u sir
i have to have a sub that will fit in a box with thses 2 specs, Air Space = .60 cubic foot Per Sub, Mounting Depth = 5.25"
heres a link to the box, Ford F-250/F-350 Supercrew Cab 99-07 Dual BTS Subwoofer Box (http://www.supercrewsound.com/99F250ccbts.html)
will the components make that big of a difference from the others with the tweeter on the speaker already?

yes the components will ,that prime amp is junk and a waste of your money,also consider amping the speakers too.there are some speakers here for you to look at American Bass - SL 104 (http://americanbassusa.com/product.detail/product_id/29) i can give you a price too.

If u could get me a price that would be awesome. I take it there better then the W1's?
What amp for the W1's or the American Bass's?
Would this amp be good for the speakers? Rockford Fosgate T600-4 POWER

next question setting gains, the calculator in the link here: http://www.caraudio.com/forums/car-audio-reference-database/534215-how-set-gains-dmm.html will this work for amp for speakers too? Is this something u should do with speaker amp too?
