    Re: New, and Looking to upgrade

    OP dont listen to all these fuc€ing retards they dont know what theyre talking about.

    if you say budget is $1000 theyll tell you to buy 2 $300 subs & a $400 amp.

    you still need wiring, deadener, & a box.

    dont spend more than $5-600 on subs & amp if your budget is $1000 so you have enough cash to get everything else you need.

    all these dumba$$es giving bad advice should be skull fu˘ked & banned.

    I don't agree with the single 12" recommendation, but if those 1500's were repaired correctly and are legit, pretty nice deal..

A 15" or an 18" would fill out that trunk with a much better look, IMO... Plus, 1 sub = less work for him to do on his first install. Even if it is marginally more simple / slightly less opportunities for a mistake, I think its still a bonus. 1 Cutout, 2 coils, more options for box dimensions needing only 1 woofer on the baffle... I think he should go with an 18".
    ^^^Exactly. A single 12" in a Denali? He's not gonna be happy. A single 15" or 18" is my vote. OP, I'd say see what kind of deals you can get on an amp in the 1500~2000 watt range, and then pick a sub based on your leftover budget, but don't forget about wiring and the box.

    Keep in mind I'm from an SQ and practicality school of thought, so I'm thinking find a decent, powerful sub under 200 that plays well with proper amplification that doesn't take up all of his cargo space. If that's not a concern I think a good 18 would suit him well.

    I was trying to find the link to that sale, but am on limited resources here at work. I think he sent the amps to db-r for repair.

    You serious? 1 18" SSD is going to be under $300.
    1 good condition ~1000w amp is going to be under $300.
    Wiring is $100.

    That's $700. He can build a box himself, or I'm sure get one on here, and have plenty for deadening and a case of beer to celebrate his first successful install.

    Trolling in the dome / random homo pictures is one thing.

    Trolling someone who ACTUALLY PUTS EFFORT into making their post legible, and is obviously intent on doing this, is something totally different. Go fvck yourself. This is an advice thread, how is he supposed to know you are trolling?
