    Need Advice/Recommendations on first system

    Greetings all,

    New user here. I bought a car that previously had a system in it. A 96 civic Hatchback, it has all the wiring ran to the hatch, has a fuse on the power wire at the battery.

    They obviously took out the amp and Sub because the radio plays but there is no bass at all. The head unit is a Boss that says 4x80.

    I need to know what to buy to give me a decent system. I dont want to do competiton, wake the neighbors or anything like that. I just want to crank it up and rock out with some kick *** bass. I listen to a wide range of music, Mostly metal/rock, but also some old school hip hop, classic rock, some dub-step, even some classical.

    I have tried to read up on amps and speakers and sub's, but it is overwhelming.

    I can take pics of what is there already if needed, but can someone give me an example of what they would buy, or even an exact part list. And maybe different price ranges?

    Not even sure what a good budget is.


    Is two to three hundred laughable?

    Three to four better?

    Give me an idea.

    build your own box, unless you dont know how to measure or cut wood correctly.

    $200 Fi SSD 12" Dual 2 ohm

    $200 Diamond Audio D61000.1 Class D AMP

    Make sure the wiring is at least 4 guage.

    Thatll put you at like $475 with parts. You could go less than that but just a suggestion.



    Don't listen to me.

    orrrrrrrrrrrrrrr....

    1-12" Alpine Type R D4 - FOR SALE: hcca's. Type r's. 4kw amp.

    PG 600.1 - PG Xenon 600.1

    Puts ya around $275. Then you could have somone build a box and install it since you seem to not know much about tuning an amp/installing them. Good Luck!

    Sundown Audio E10 D4 X 2 underrated, and the best bang for the buck out there, IMO.

    WoofersEtc.com - P1000.1 - Precision Power Monoblock 2000 Watts Max Class D Amplifier dang good efficient, small, reliable, and underrated power.


    Supporting Vendors *NEW* shop around for a good custom box for that car to get the most out of what you buy tailored to your musical tastes..
