    Re: dubstep car audio set up help !!!!!!

    a JL Audio 1000/1 would be perfect for that sub. A very pricey amp, but certainly good. But it'd use up your budget.

    You'll need an amplifier installation kit - 4 awg minimum. Good ones run ~$100

    what vehicle? what head unit? everything else factory?



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.

    there is plenty of information in this forum. start looking around, reading threads, etc. you'll see a lot of the same questions with various answers.

    don't hesitate to walk into local car audio shops and talk to them. it's easier to explain this in person than typing in a forum. but if you read enough threads, and spend enough time researching, you can figure out the basics.

    or, you can pay a shop to do it for you and just enjoy the music.

    Re: dubstep car audio set up help !!!!!!

    you'll need to determine what size the factory speakers are, what size you can fit, etc. Crutchfield is a decent resource for authorized car audio and they included the necessary installation instructions, brackets, mounts, etc. necessary to do the job.

    buying used gear can save you a ton of money, but there are risks. What is the impedance of your JL W7? It should say on the sub (terminals or magnet)

    Re: dubstep car audio set up help !!!!!!

    impedance is measured in ohms. so the impedance of your sub is 3 ohms. If you can find a JL 1000/1 you're in business. or even JL HD750-1 or Alpine PDX1000.1

    for speakers, you need to determine what will fit in factory locations or if you are willing to build door pods, kick pods, etc. there are so many choices for speakers, and they all sound different. your best bet is to listen to as many as you can, then make a decision that you like the sound of and that will fit your budget and intended location.

    personally, i make the front speakers a priority - i focus most of my effort there.
