    ok seriously

    ok seriously., now - with that kinda $ u have a lotta choice. There are LOTS of great products out there but I think, as many will hopefully confirm, its like 70% install 30% equipment - even some of the dirtiest subs can sound like some of the best, so set aside a large chunk of that budget for custom made box, good wiring, good battery etc.

    This aside, if u want spl, look into name like dd, treo, reasonnat engineering, orion hcca, mmats, hurricane and shocker audio.

    sq - id max, w7, crystal, eclipse.

    sql - dd, id max, crystal.

    amps - go for BIG class D amps, like Memphis Mojo, or wait for the new MMATS D class - 3000RMS

    for components try id, boston, mb quart, dd.

    but my best advice is to around and listen to as many systems as ou can and then chhose wht to spend yor $$$ on............

    how much should i set aside............

    so how much do you think i should spend on equipment and on installation. How much actually should i set aside out of the $2500 fo installation. Can you give me your option or how u would set yours up if u had that amount of money.

    Do research on what type system you want eg. bassy or crystal clear. Price everything at a
    audio store, and get on ebay and see how much money u save!

    from a sales persons view

    i sell car audio for a living
    a cheap yet loud way to make a system is alpine type r subs about $180 a piece
    a custom box $300 because that is in my opinion the most crucial part, xtant or ppi amps $700 if you can find themif not good ol rockford fosgate, and then a decent pair of boston or infinity components for fronts 300$, and a pair of boston or infinity coaxials for rears 200$. amp those $300 and get good wire $250 and a pro install $300
    also if you dont have it already get an eq because your deck does not have one.

    i want a system that is crystal clear and loud, i really dont stress bass. the type of music i listen to is rap, dancehall reggae, and r&b do i really need bass for a system like this. with that type of a music how would you create your system. what do you think about this for my sub i was thinking about going with diamond m3 15'"(1000watts) and a mono jbl 1200.1 amp. what do you think about this?

    I have one diamond m3 15"
    THIS THING KICKS ***
    i've prob got about 400 watts rms going to it in a 2 cu ft sealed box, and it is lound and very clear. I listen to rap, techno, alternative, punk, radio, whatever, and I love this sub! sounds great with metallica, nelly, nirvana, my parents jazz, and talk shows.
    with a 1200.1 amp that would rip **** up.

    do you think the diamond m3 15" would be better than two 12" for a civic. if you had a civic what would you do go with two 12" or one 15". which one do you think is better and why?

    good looking on the reply
