I just recently got a Dodge Stealth and need some kick to the sound system, i don't have much money so what is your recommendation for the amp for under 100$. Also want to know if you have any tips for wiring over the stock amp.
Also what are some nice subs to fit in my 10" trunk (yeah its non existent)
thank you for helping.

Definitely can't do better than above for a system that cheap. Keep in mind though that you will still need an amp kit

No no and no. Avoid prefab ported enclosures. Avoid pyramid. And DEFINITELY avoid boss. If you're looking for good budget subwoofers, check out this link

http://www.caraudio.com/forums/audio-technix/576119-audio-technix-blowout-sale.html - I'd go for a D2 Strato sub and a 4ga amp kit from there

For an amp, you could get the AudioTechnix 400.1 from the above link, or get something used. You could then buy a custom enclosure from a builder on the forum. The only prefab box I would buy would be a sealed one.

RMS. Peak is COMPLETELY useless and used for marketing purposes.

I have a jensen power1050 mono amp i csn ship you for $50. Can include the wireing for it too. if u are useing your stock deck, i have a MX-4 that i can include for an extra $20. You just splice it into the speaker wire and it allows you to run your amp off it. Check my fs threads. $70 shipped for both and amp wireing

No, no, and more no. Don't even touch Boss or Pyle, or Pyramid with a 10 foot long stick. COMPLETE waste of money. They lack both in the quality of parts and the quality of sound they produce and they will NOT produce anywhere near rated. You look for the RMS, completely ignore Peak. Whatever you do, just don't get any of the fore mentioned gear.. I'm not trying to push that deal offered earlier but in honesty for the budget it's the best you'll get more than likely. $100 + approx $35 shipping. Amp kit for $35 so you're at $170 and a custom box for a 10" is around $100 shipped so you cruise in at $270. Can't do much better then that for the budget. Please ask us before you buy anything though, we'll gladly help guide you in the right direction

amazon and ebay have the same things on ebay but cheaper and theres no tax and sometimes no shipping charges either. Lowest Prices on Sports & Outdoor | Home & Garden | Electronics (http://www.vminnovations.com/) is another cheapo place. Seriously though, dont ever look at trash brands that'll explode the next day. Boss, performance teknique, pyramid, etc.. I'm sure there's a car audio trash post on this website if you search for it. Most of all, after you get everything set up. DONT FRIGGEN MAX OUT THE GAIN OR BASS BOOST. Your post about wanting to buy boss is a big foreshadowing of you blowing up your audio equipment in the future.

ease of purchase

No pyramid! No pyle! Pioneer is good

if you like metal, than go with kicker, they'll fit your style of bass more than pioneers.

will agree... had two kicker setups(one being the one im trying to sell lol) and both played well on a wide range of music and i listen to alot of rock/metal and they did just fine picking up the bass

The only banging that would occur from buying Pyramid, Boss, Pyle etc would be from your head hitting the wall for actually buying that junk. Seriously, you'll regret it.

How much will you sell the amp shipped to me? And is it new?

Get reds stuff can't beat that deal with a batt!!!!!

If u must get new stuff something like an audio pipe apsm 1200 $89.00 on eBay and put it on 2 sundown sa8's or if the SA's are too much get 2 e series 10's ...

The SA 8's run pretty good in .5 cubic ft of sealed box each..

What I would do is get 1 Sa 8" in a duel 4 ohm voice coil and a used apsm2000 (I just sold my old one for $100) run the 1 8 in 2 ohm until u get another then wire them down to 1 ohm and bamm pretty good bang on a budget..

I had a 3000gt (same car as the dodge stealth) and brotha I hate to tell ya but its next to impossible to get anything bigger in that trunk unless u get inventive.

But yeah an audiopipe apsm 1800 or 2000 used on 2 quality 8's will bang pretty damm hard in a sealed box. You might even have room for a bigger ported box that would really wake those SA 8's up.

As far as the factory radio and amp either get rid of it and go with an after market deck or buy a jl audio clean sweep.

Dude get the subs and amp for $100. The amp is worth that so u are basically getting the subs for free. No brainer, even if u don't need or cannot fit the subs you can always ebay them or sell em to a buddy.

bumpasauras
07-18-2013, 01:51 AM
Oh and if the kenwood is "new" ill buy it for a $100 Red!! And u can keep the subs lol

They are going for 150$ on eBay right now!!

In fact if u don't buy it I will

Red hit me up if he does not get it... I can make a lil money on that deal!!

And everybody is telling you not to buy boss and pyramid junk for a reason IT'S JUNK and new egg has good deals on home electronics but not so much on car audio.. It's kinda like going to McDonald's to buy BBQ. Yeah they got the Mc rib and the pic of it looks good on the menu but its gonna taste like shizz half way thru the sandwich and its gonna give you the liquid shizz !

One of my favorite setups was 2 Kicker Comp 10's in a big old sealed box on a Pioneer 2 channel. Sounded great and could run it on 8 gauge all day. Not going to blow out your trunk latch or anything but it sounded great on everything! Rock, hip hop, country... Didn't matter.

also is it ok for the amp to have higher wattage then the subs?

Jeffdachef
07-19-2013, 09:22 PM
yes it is because most cheapo amps dont even put out the power they claim. Invest in a multi-meter and google up, how to set gains with a multimeter, Youtube has videos on how to do it too, if you do it right your not going to blow anything, unless you buy junk brands.
