    New At This But Please Point Me In The Right Direction :)

    SUBS: I want to get two subs for my Sedan. I'd perfer 12" subs and right now im playing the brand game. What does everyone suggest, I like the look of Audiobahn excluding their prices. I want some subs that I really boom but I don't want to sacrafice any quality. I'd like some that can pound at least 500 watts.

    BOX: I want to get a box and I'm wondering if the ported boxes are that much better than regular boxes.

    AMP: Which brands of amps are good? I want something that can run 500 watts or something more. Also with amps, which way is best to go, 1.) A mono amp and hook both subs to that, or 2.) bridge a 2 channel to the subs?

    My budget is about $400-$450, Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

    audiobahns are definetly going to sacrifice any sound quality you are wanting.....
    there are many many companies that produce subs that should fit the bill

    check out www.respl.com www.edesignaudio.com www.adireaudio.com www.stereointegrity.com and see what you like

    it will be hard to get 2 12's and an amp for under 450...you must account that you'll need about 50$ or so for wires...and another 50 for a good box .. a ported box will get louder than a sealed box but you will lose some sound quality...but usually not enough to make the person want a sealed box..

    i'd say go for one 12 and an amp.....the selection above would not be a bad choice...but look around first

    the right 12 and amp will be louder than 2 12's,but thats if there is more money involved.and eD K(edesignaudio.com) will run you about 135$and a little profile amp will run you about 150$ or so.And a box by loneranger(pm him for quotes) will be very cheap and excellent quality,wires can be about 20$ off ebay for a 4awg kit.
