    What equipment does said person already own? Like amp wiring and such.. Some one new to the scene won't know how bad *** a great 10" will sound compared to a pair of 15"..

    id say. pick a size and number of subs you want that will fit in the space you have to deal with ... then shop sundown, DD, AQ or obsidian then get an amp to run whatever power and ohm you need pretty much cant go wrong.
