    what should i buy (4 12"s and amps)

    im looking to buy 4 12"s and 2 amps. what i was thinkin is getting the infinity kappas or references. i dont want to spend a lot. i want low price but good quality and good sound. and which amp should i buy for the subs. i was thinking buy 2 4 channel amps and bridging them. and i want to buy door speakers and put an amp on those so which brands should i go with. i was thinking pioneers in the front doors for the clarity and rockfords in the back for the bass. im planning on putting the 4 12"s and 3 amps in a fiberglass box to replace the back seats which will be coming out most likely. unless i can make it some way that i can still reach my spare if i get a flat. btw i drive a 93 nissan nx2000 and id like to spend no more than $800 if possible

    Try this on and tell me what you think....

    4 Alpine SWS-1041D 80$ each 320$ set
    1 jbl bp 1200.1 285$
    1 jbl bp 300.1 145$
    Legacy LS6995 6x9's 600 watt max 35$

    that leaves you with 15$ for wiring or somthing....that should give you quit a great sound....

    depending on the sound you want? Do you want alot of bass? I would go for the 12's, because personally I was not satisfied with 10's so I had to upgrade...Save the money and just go with 12's......If the bass is what your looking for I would try alpine, fosgate, audiobahn, but there are many other choices out there.....for the money a jbl amp is also a great choice.....good luck!
