    camaro set up

    i have about 700 dollars to spend on subs and amp and a custom box(i can get the box built by a friend for pretty cheap) i have a camaro ss 2002 with the monsoon factory system and head unit. since i have t tops i dont want my subs in the actual part where my t tops go i want them right behind the back seat. does any one have pictures of this setup? if so can you post them? also what would you guys prefer with my budget for me to purchase ive heard 2 10's one 15 and what brand and model subs and amp should i look into? and also can anyone give me a quick explaination of ohms and what should you run your subs at 2 ,4, 1 ohms? i know at lower ohms u get higher watts but whats the draw back to this?
    thanks for your time and help
    chris

    well my buddy drives the same car....i will probably be helping him make some stuff for his car soon....but as for the ohms....subs are rated at diff resistence(ohms) levels....the lower the ohm load the less resistence....most amps are stable down to 2ohms(some are stable lower)......basicly u determine the load the amp see's by different wiring combinations.....its all dependant on the subs u have and what ohm level the amp is stable to.....give us that info and we'll be more than happy to help....peace

    also the lower ohms you get the more apt you are to distortion. u.s. acoustics amps are cheap and good, same with elemental k subs. elementals amplifiers are good too i hear, not sure of price.

    yeah, its all about the wiring. if you got the dual 2 ohm dvc k's you can wire them at four, hook them together to the amp and it will be running at 2 ohms, which i believe is stable.
