    The W7 isn't bad, just very expensive. There are much better woofers for less and if you are not opposed to buying used check out the classifieds. For other brands check out...

    Re: Help on buying and installing a car sound system jl w7 (amp, speakers, sub,head u

    First you need to determine how much power you want to run. The power requirements for a SSA GCON is going to be different for a Digital Designs 9500. All of those speaker brands are good and each have their own nuthuggers that will tell you one is better than the other.

    For a head unit, really just pick one you like. I always use Kenwood but that is just me. Others prefer Alpines, Pioneers, Eclipse, etc. The biggest thing I look for the the perout voltage. I try to stick around 4 or 5v.
