    Re: new here with questions!

    first the bass amp is way too much power for those subs,also consider some better speakers up frt ,components will do nicely.you'll also need to do the big 3 on the electrical and maybe replace the stock battery with a agm battery

    Re: new here with questions!

    ok what amp for those subs? Will this one be better for those subs?
    ROCKFORD FOSGATE R500-1 PRIME
    I dont know a lot about this stuff trying not to spend a crap ton but want it to sound a lot better then it does now stock.
    id rather not do components they seem much more diffcult to wire and put in.
    battery is a brand new interstate plus it is a diesel so i have 2 batteries if that makes a difference.
    what else needs to be done on the electrical side of things?

    Re: new here with questions!

    ok thank u sir
    i have to have a sub that will fit in a box with thses 2 specs, Air Space = .60 cubic foot Per Sub, Mounting Depth = 5.25"
    heres a link to the box, Ford F-250/F-350 Supercrew Cab 99-07 Dual BTS Subwoofer Box
    will the components make that big of a difference from the others with the tweeter on the speaker already?

    Re: new here with questions!

    yes the components will ,that prime amp is junk and a waste of your money,also consider amping the speakers too.there are some speakers here for you to look at American Bass - SL 104 i can give you a price too.

    Re: new here with questions!

    If u could get me a price that would be awesome. I take it there better then the W1's?
    What amp for the W1's or the American Bass's?
    Would this amp be good for the speakers? Rockford Fosgate T600-4 POWER
