    New member with a low budget

    Hey guys, i'm new here, and relatively new to the car audio scene. I was recommended these subs,
    they look pretty good to me, i have a 93 Jeep Grand Cherokee. What amp would you recommend for that sub, at a reasonable price, preferably under 200 dollars? I'm also looking at getting these speakers http://cgi.ebay.com/CADENCE-CWM6-KIT...QQcmdZViewItem
    I want to spend no more than 600 dollars right now, so any other suggestions would be awesome, thanks

    Well two DVC4ohms lead me to recommend a one ohm stable amp. You would be happy if you gave them at least 750 watts per sub, the more the better i suppose. You wanting to take up ALL your jeep's space with music reproduction units or do you still want cargo room?

    Re: New member with a low budget

    you need an amp that can do 1000watts rms at 1ohm mono or 500 watts rms at 2ohm stereo

    edit: depending on what box you put in, you can go with more power

    i have a large cargo area, so space isn't really a problem, but i do still want some space for storage. Any ideas on a good, affordable amp?

    Re: New member with a low budget

    that one is a little above my price range, would this amp be suitable to power both subs? http://www.woofersetc.com/index.cfm?...roduct_ID=6102

    I have heard this very amp. The sound quality and output is insane for the money.
    Anyone here will attest to the quality of the subs.
    Same for the mid/highs.

    say $450 for the above.With 600$, you should have enough to get a decent enclosure for the RE's....I am assuming you have a head unit.


    .............just my 2 cents...I bought my system from Woofers etc. for less than $800
    I am very impressed so far.

    Re: New member with a low budget

    I'd say just get one Audioque SD2.512, put it in a ported box (search around a bit for the info), get an amp around 600-700 watts (make sure you set the gain right, seach around for that too) and be done with it. If you need a head unit, I don't know.
