    what should i buy?

    so im kinda new to car audio an i was wanting to get a system in my car an i dont want to pay alot to get it hooked up by a pro so ive been doing research, an i thank i can hook them up Farley ease.

    i am on a budget at about $300. from what i know i was planing on buying 2 12" subs an a amp an a amp kit (i dont need a box i can build one if the subs dont come with one). here are the subs i was thanking on buying (go to amazon an past this : Pair of (2) Kenwood Kfc-w3013ps 12" 4 Ohm Performance Series Car Subwoofer with 2400 Watt Peak / 800 Watt RMS ) but idk what amp too get i was looking an i cant find a 4 Ohm amp that has 2 channel that has 800 RMS.
    or should i but the amp combo with thos speakers?

    should i buy thees an try to find an amp or do you guys have any suggestions?

    Does this budget include a head unit, wiring, subs, box materials, amp(s), and speakers? Also, are you positive you could properly design/build an enclosure with your own skill and knowledge? That's one of the biggest parts of the install, so it's not something you want to cut corners on.

    Re: what should i buy?

    ok first off you need to rethink what you want ,2 12's is ok and an amp ,but your looking at junk, utter garbage there is some decent stuff to get ,but if you want to spend only $300 your not gonna get much , might wanna look at 1 sub and an amp to power it ,also you'll need an amp kit /wires ,a deck ,dash kit ,harness and a box design if your gonna build one .you need to up your budget some to get everything .

    Honestly I couldn't agree with u more. Why do all these people come on here and wanna spend nothing to get something. Keep saving your money dude. It not worth it ti buy junk. Save save save. What's the rush. This isn't a race. Maybe by next summer u could have a nasty set up. I've been saving for months now to get the stuff I really want. Dont by garbadge.
