    Ok first off, for your BMW, the Alpine CDA-7893 will be great! I have one myself in my Benz... The JL Audio 500/1 is good, but I don't know about the subwoofers... I would move more towards a different brand when it comes to subs.... Second, in your truck the Alpine unit is fine... Just do not think of touching those Bazooka EL1204s, their piece of junk! They only allow 250w RMS, and a waste of money. I got them one day with a buy one get one free offer, I wonder why they were on sale. I ended up taking them back the next day. Hope this helps...

    HU: Alpine CDA-7894
    AMP: MTX Thunder81000d
    KnuKonceptz 0ga Amp Power Wires/Kit & Tsunami 4ga Power Wire
    SUB: (2) Blown 12" MTX Thunder8000 (Awaiting Arrival)
    Cap: PPI 1 Farad

    To: BudgetSQ

    Actually, I want to go SPL, but the problem with the BMW is that the bass can't get out of the trunk because of some odd reason........

    The budget is basically limilless.......... but within reason...

    P.S.: Thanx for the reply guys............

    For the BMW, as long as you don't mind some permanent alterations to your car, you could cut holes for ports in your back deck, I have done that b4 and had pretty good results, or you could attach your sub boxes right into the back deck and have your subs facing straight up in the cabin, I have also seen good results from that

    for subs, check out diamond tdx subs that will be coming out soon
    they handle insane amounts of power, sound amazing, and THUMP
    my friend has two (he's a JL nut) and he absolutly loves them.
    only problem is they're expensive!
