    Starting over. This time i want it louder;)

    i want to get a whole new setup for my car. i am selling all of my audio equipment and getting new/better stuff. my car is getting repainted in a few weeks and i want to start getting ideas on what to buy for it when i get it back for the shop. i'm sorta on a budget and am planning on buying all of my stuff new on ebay. heresa list of the stuff i have now and the stuff i plan on replacing it with. i need help picking out some of the blank spots:

    Speakers:
    rockford power series 5.25 and 5x7 coaxials(old)
    cdt-61a comps(new)

    amp (subs):
    rockford 500w rms 2 channels amp(old)
    rockford t3002(new)

    amp (speakers):
    rockford p2002(old)
    ??(new)

    Subs:
    (1) 12" alpine type r(old)
    (2) 10" subs(new)

    budget:
    subs $200-$230
    sub amp: $200
    comps:$150
    comps amp:$150

    i've read that the t3002 is way underrated and it puts out around twice as much power as it's rated for. i want subs that will give me solid, tight bass. i am not looking for spl, mostly sq. any suggestions/comments from my list?? thanks.

    i hate to say it but i doubt you will be much louder at all. i wouldn't got with people sayin you will get twice the power with that amp.

    in other words you may want to re evaluate your plan

    yea i know that my plan might not be the best but that's why i put it on here to get other people's opinions and maybe they can steer me in the right direction on what to spend my money on...

    It's not going to do over twice of what it does at 1 ohm. That's not how bridging works. I wouldn't believe that at all.

    i'm really diggin the amp. i just might get it

    i don't think that 4 10's will fit in my car. i would like to have 2 10's but the most i could fit are 3 if i get a custom box made. any other subs that will be a good match for this amp?
