    I need help picking out a sub/amp combo

    It will be going into a 1996 Ford Bronco. I have around 1000 dollars to spend and I would like to have a mix of loudness and sound quaility with more influence on sound quality.

    Stereo Integrity Magnum D2- 2 X 300= 600

    For amps, JBL 1200.1- around 280
    or Hifonics BX1500D- 315 from
    http://ikesound.com/product-product_id/1507

    Build your own sealed enclosure, with 1.5 cu ft per sub, you have the room in a bronco. Get wiring from wal-mart or www.KnuKonceptz.com. It should pound, and sound really good. You may need some electrical upgrades, but worry about that when your finished everything.

    There's a lot to pick from for 1000 dollars. I would say to do some reading here on the forum(the subs and amp sections). If possible go to some local install shops or even BB, Circuit City and just listen to different setups.

    The W7 is really nice but overly priced. You can get 2 of any of these subs that do the same job.

    Re: I need help picking out a sub/amp combo

    I'd also recommend for your application 2 Stereo Integrity magnum d2's. AMAZING SQ...and they get really loud. Match them up with the tsunami db1800 and you'll be wangin. Drop them in a ported box with 2 cubes each ported @30hz and u'll be amazed.
    www.stereointegrity.com (magnum d2's x2= $600)
    http://www.avionixxusa.com/ep/products.htm (tsunami db1800 $350)

    $950 with money leftover for wiring...and box...peace

    Re: I need help picking out a sub/amp combo

    well, just be smart. ONE 12W7 and an amp to power it well will cost nearly as much as TWO magnum d2's (which...one is comparable to a 12w7) and an amp to power them. keep that in mind...with the magnums you are paying for quality...with the w7 you're paying more for the name. peace
