    Starting my build

    Hey,

    I am 15, and don't have a car yet, but I am starting to get audio equipment ready for it. I do not have any sub woofers yet, but I did get some amplifiers.

    So far I have gotten a MRP-M500 and a Rockford Fosgate T5002 off craigslist.

    When I got the Rockford, it was in horrible condition. This is the cleaned up, tri-fan design. 2 dual fans on the top of the amp, plus a third fan that is in the center of the circuit board, under the gray cover. The dual fans have blue LED's when you turn the amplifier on. Soon I will be painting the amplifier a different color. What color scheme do you guys think I should do?

    Re: Starting my build

    Whats your budget? Goals? What vehicle will this be going in? Kinda hard to help you if we don't know what vehicle this will go in. I could tell you to get a pair of 15s, but would be no good if you ended up getting a car that doesn't have room for them...



    Headunit - Pioneer DEH-P8300UB
    Subs - None
    Sub Amp - 2x Crescendo 3kwp
    Front Stage - Polk Audio db651 Coaxial
    Front Amp - None

    Right now.. my budget is nothing haha well.. for the audio equipment anyways, I have $5300 saved up so far for the car. I am hoping to get a few sub installs going on craigslist to make some money, then apply for a job in the spring which will roll in some money as well. Basically I just want to modify the crap out of my car. I am a guy who is very into engines and car audio at the same time so the more the better haha. I am hoping to get either a Mustang GT or a Pontiac Trans am/Firebird. The stang will have hardly any room in the trunk (my buddies got one, and I installed subs in his car, and had to use a small *** box to get them in the trunk.) and I think the firebird doesn't really have a trunk but it has like a few feet behind the rear seats to place things.
