    Cheap SQ Build in 330ci

    Hey guys, just recently bought a new car and want to go with a cheap SQ build sometime next year. My budget is pretty low, the cheaper the better, but I still want bass and sq. I've put together a cheap list of what i'm interested in getting. However, if you know of something better, your more than welcome to say, just remember i'm on a low budget, just bought a new car and i have a wedding next year so most of my money will be going towards that. Of course ill upgrade to something better after the wedding, but for now I want something I can listen to.

    2x MB Quart 12" RWE302 subs
    Audiopipe AP3002 2 channel amp
    Ported Enclosure(would like a custom one, but doubt I can get for something under $70 shipped)
    Wiring from KnuKonceptz

    Total will be around $350

    I'll be using stock headunit

    well its only a budget build now, i just need the money to go towards a wedding which isnt going to be cheap. I just want something nice for the time being until I put 2 w7's in with jl 1000/1 amps. Yes i'm fully aware their are better subs for the price than a w7, but i just have to have a big name brand sub in a bmw. Plus w7's are nice in my opinion, you get SQ and plenty of bass at the same time.

    Well I guess audiopipe is gone, any recommendations ?

    There are plenty of old school SQ amps in the classifieds that are more than capable.

    Id scrap those subs and pick something else. Pick a nice single woofer and a nice set of components for up front and bridge the Alpine to each side.

    Grab this amp:

    Why 2 subs? Your not going to get budget SQ and run 2 subs and a quality amp. Your going to end up with garbage being picky.
