Inside the car, the sound was pretty decent if played half way up but once pass the halfway mark it was crappy and a few feet away from the car you really couldn’t hear it or feel the bass. I would like help in piecing together a nice quality sounding system with a nice deep bass.

    About two year back I tried to educated myself on car audio but still find myself dumbfounded. I never listened to them in person but fell in love with Re 15’ XXX or MTS for bass, an infinity Kappa perfect for highs and mids I guess and the Brutus hifonic amps or the Orion 2500 amp.

    No set budget as this will be an un-time project but with listed items above you kind of see my spending range (will most likely buy everything from the classified forum on this site). I just don’t want to get cheated, I’m a young black high school teacher that is building this project because it’s a hobby but more importantly to show my students that you don’t have to sell dope to get a nice tricked out car. The car will most likely be a 2002 ford tarus wagon…. the school bus, education pays off lol.
    Your students are going to freaking love you, man. Welcome. The classifieds here are awesome, btw. Good choice on shopping venue.

I’m looking to max out at about $100 per sub for 6 10’s, or 4 12’s at about $140 each, or 2 15’s at $325 maybe a little more per sub (was thinking about one solo x 18 but didn’t like the sound quality of that also). Amp(s) about $800-$1000 could go a little higher, about $200 on the mids and highs and about $300 on the HU. Not sure of about wiring, box etc. As for the set up I would like a nice crystal clear sound with deep bass felt not over powering the music and I’m not sure where OP is located. Total build no more than $3700 but I’m always willing to save a few bucks.
    Wow, $3700 is ALOT for a newb first time build (no offense meant)

    I put less than $1500 in mine (after lots of trial and error, and I do all the work myself, didnt pay anyone to install) and I bet you've heard nothing like it

    I would recommend two powerful 12's.. maybe 1500rms each. Lets say around $400 for those two subs.

    Then maybe another 500$ for the amp.

    $80 or so for all the wiring

    maybe another $150 for a good battery (either replace battery, or add an additonal trunk battery)

    and $150-$200 for a solid pioneer headunit (no touchscreen or anything but top of the line bluetooth, 4v outs, etc, and you are in business my friend.

    Thats $1280, and leaves you ALOT more budget for speakers.

    edit: i forgot about the box. Find someone locally who knows what they are doing, and Im sure you could have one built for less than 150 that will blow any other box out of the water from bestbuy/internet



    Headunit - Stock cassette player - Pioneer P9400
    Front Stage - Pyle 8 inch subs (1000 watt peak!!) - Polk DB6.5 (about to be CDT 6.5s)
    Rear stage - Deleted (stolen) - Deleted
    Sub stage - custom built 15 inch sony xplod (5k watt peak!!!) (huge box) - Two SA12's built by Corey
    Sub amp - Pyle 8000w peak!! (spl edition) - AQ2200
    Electircal - 35 amp alt from ford festiva upgrade, stolen battery, 28 gauge solder coil for my cable - Dual D34 Yellows, 1/0 trystar OFC, 135amp alt

    Re: Cheated !!!

    If it is for a school project, I would talk to some of the shops about donating some equipment.

    Not all shops are bad, people seem to think they should work for pennies. I was a mechanic and our shop rate was $95 a hour, another place was over $130. It takes a lot to keep the doors open on a legitimate business.

    Do your research, lurk around, teaching the kids how to do it right will be invaluable.
