    Re: Kicker vs. Alpine help

    still not saying where I work because I know many people that got fired for this type of stuff.. but my degree is in automotive technology.. so I have connects with the parts industry through my school and personal connects and I can hook up all the extra power goodies up myself no charge.. thinking at least a 270 amp XP alternator from DC.. I'm still browsing tho as it's going to take a couple weeks for delivery

    I've heard both before and they both and plenty of amperage.. and both blow my ears in.. but they were both in hatchbacks.. and I have a trunk go figure..

    fair enough, how much are you planning to spend for amp and sub?

    It'd honestly be well worth it to get a deal on an amp through your discount then grab a bad@ss sub from the SSA store.
