    Getting back in the game...

    So I used to build systems years ago... got my truck stripped by the local crackheads to many times so I stopped. Well I got a new truck (2006 F-250 Crew cab) and I was out driving and heard a system and decided it was time to come back . So with that being said I have lost a lot of my knowledge, and new things are out now. So I come asking advice I am thinking of doing 2 12"Kicker CompVX's should I go with 2 or 4 ohm ad what is a good amp these days to push these?

    What're your goals for this system? Daily? Do you plan on competing? Also what's your budget for the amp(s)?

    Its a daily driver. Budget Id say $500-$1000. I don't drive it much and I am doing a completely custom interior and the box will be in between the two rear buckets.

    Nope, I am not set on anything. Actually lets do this, my budget is $2,000 for just amps and subs, and I can build up to about 10 cubes. Whats good for $2k.....Im looking for somewhere between SQ and SPL, I want it loud but not noisy

    Pretty sure that's an oxymoron, the two mean nearly the same thing. Look up the definition of loud, and noisy is in there somewhere.
