    Build me a system!!

    I have 1000 to spend for a system.(wires, box, sub, amp, front)

    I was originally thinking either a HDC318 or a custom 18 from SPLAUDIO on a Ap30001d or ap18001d.

    I want an 18 for sure though because I'm building this for a daily ground pounder, doesn't need to meter well and i will prolly tune it around 28-32 hz.

    All of this is going in an extended cab s10/sonoma. Any reccomendations?

    sounds like u have a good plan for that amount of money. you have power wire? extra battery? have you dont the big 3?


    i would do sub foward and port to the side al below the window line. have RAM_Designs hook you up with a design, very nice guy

    are you willing to consider a blow through?

    What's wrong with a custom 18? 2 12's are so overused..

    Re: Build me a system!!

    No power wire, if I go with the 1800 amp it only accepts 4 guage so that would be a lot cheaper plus the cost of the amp is 100 less than the 30001d. If I go with the 30001d I will need 1/0 which is a lot more than 4 guage so I'm not sure where to go from there. Would it be worth getting the 3000 or will the 1800 be plenty? I pretty much just want something that sounds decent, gets louder than my 2 cvr 15s i had, and demos well.

    optima red top under the hood and going to do the big 3 in 1/0.

    With 1800 watts, will a H/o alt be necessary, what alternator comes stock in a s10/sonoma 4.3 v6?

    and rams designs are only a buck arent they? if so i will do that for sure

    EDIT:

    No blow through and I am pretty set on a single sub set up, pretty set on an 18 also...

    EDIT: X2

    Was also thinking of going 4th order with an 18, not sure if ill have the space though....

    Re: Build me a system!!

    $279 for the 18
    HDC318 Copper Coil Subwoofer
    amp $429
    AQ2200D Amplifier

    then 200 bucks for a solid extra battery (i have some )

    that leaves about 100 for materials for the box

    no, bucks designs are only a buck, lol... but he does good work. so does ram, and pro rabbit.

    as far as the amp, it really depends on the sub you choose, and so does the wiring

    I would get a new 18 but not a new amp, the prices are crazy. Either get a used AQ or get an AP, you will save quite a bit

    Ya but what about wiress.... The 200$ I save by getting an AP will pay for them unfortunately.. I do want an aq2200 though.

    I figure i will run it like that with an AP and then when i get enough ill buy the AQ and sell the AP..

    Alternatively you can get 2 AP1500's for like $270 which is cheaper than the AP3k and gives you some more wiring options too

    I thought this also until someone brought up distro block, rcas and all that and I figure after that the ap3k is cheaper...
