    So is that new amp, subs, hi, electrical? Or do you plan on just getting a second 2200 and what type of electrical do you have now?

    Re: LONG TIME....NEW SETUP Suggetions/Help

    If electrical up grades is an issue and you have cargo space to spare go with a pair of 18's in a big box on your 2K. Add a good deep cycle in the cargo area and you should be good to go. I see no reason you couldn't get close to 150 with a well built box and a couple high quality 18's on 2KW

    Truck is Bone Stock, if a 2200 can push two 18's or 15's then ill go that route.....

    id rather hold on on electrical until August when i get my bonus...my third row is DEDICATED to Audio so space i have....2 HDC3-18's on the 2200, kinetik KHC2400, Big Ported box would this suffice? what in your opinion would be the best route...

    Re: LONG TIME....NEW SETUP Suggetions/Help

    Personally I'd get an HO alt, couple of batts, and a 3500.1 A single 2200 isn't really going to push 2 HDC's all that well and sure the fug won't be heard from 1/2 mile away...

    I'd personally throw the 2400 under the hood and get something bigger in the cargo area (something like 105AH size). There's absolutely no reason you can't put up a 150 with a pair of 18's on 2K provided you have a large and well built box. From there you can add larger amps and more electrical as budget permits.

    Re: LONG TIME....NEW SETUP Suggetions/Help

    back with a quickie.....in my vehicle would 1 18 be louder than 2 18's on 1 2200d....i know i know 2 18's means more cone area but 1 18 would get the whole 2000 watts...and a side note i know if i go with 1 18 obviously it would have to be D2 wired paralell...but how would i run 2 18's @ 1ohm?
