    Help needed

    Starting from scratch. 03 Acura cls. Just bought Focal 165A1 component system for front fill. I now have $1000 to work with. Was considering getting a Boston 600w x2. Amp (125w@4ohms for the focals. I was planning on buying focal 6x9s (690cvx) for 150 bucks but a friend told me to stay away from 6x9s n throw another component system in the deck. The comp system was also 150. Any thoughts??

    Advice on what equipment to run. I listen to hip hop mostly

    Re: Help needed

    depends on your wants and needs ,what subs how many ,power for subs and components .you dont need components in the rear ,just mids for fill by the way . also do you plan on any electrical upgrades as well.i need this info so i can direct you to the best possible equipment for your money .

    Re: Help needed

    this is what i'd do ,the focals in the front doors, deaden the doors ,1 or 2 subs in the rear in a custom ported box ,say 1 12 ,a 1500 - 2200 watt rms amp for the sub and 100 x 2 or 4 rms + amp for the front components. run the rears off the deck power ,0 gauge wire all around and the big 3 , possibly a better battery or even a second battery next to the amp .

    BA G1 subs are great little subs for the $, for a little while I ran 2 12s on 900w rms, they are way under rated in terms of power handling and will handle 500w each no prob
