Hello everyone. I am very new to the car audio world but I am trying to learn as much as I can. This is my first car, My 2006 MINI Cooper S JCW. For my setup I had $1000 to play with and this is what I did. Im not very handy with wood or electrical so I had my local shop install it all for me. My local shop only carries Memphis, Image Dynamics, and Pioneer. I chose Memphis because I like the warranty and I wanted to get the most bass I could get for 1000$ and I listen to Rap, which is why i got a 12 inch. So, this is what I ended up with, I am semi-happy because when the bass control is turned more then half way it gets distorted or something and it sounds bad..I don't know how to describe it, but when the knob is at about a quarter the way up it sounds good.
