    2 subs @ 1k rms each and a 2k rms amp?

    Budget is $500...this includes box as well.

    Considered getting a Hifonics Amp...but even then im not sure what subs would be within my price range. Wanting 15s but if all else fails 12s will work. Got a pretty strict budget...wanting something that gets loud and is used dailey.

    Dont have the money right now...but will soon. Most likely trading my current subs+amp towards a good HU that sold for a good bit more than what my current subs+amp is worth when it first came out. I think its a couple years old but works fine.

    So yea anyways halp?

    for budget hifonics will work. but an audiopipe would be better. hifonics are overrated but good watt to dollar ratio. i had a brutus 1606 at one time and it worked fine. even ran it at .5 ohm daily until it burt up 6 months later haha. someone else should chime in about subs

    Only wanting 2,000 not 3. BUT am trying to decide between the 1800 watt Audio Pipe and just getting 2 15" Type Rs or something else. WELL assuming the 15s are like the 12s and are able to handle more than what they are rated for. Kinda like the 12s I got right now...but if things work out I might end up trading the AP15001d and the 2 12" Type Rs I got for a good HU so ill have something better than the little $80 kenwood I got. The AP18001d and the 2 15" Type Rs would be like $70 more than I was wanting to spend...and thats without a box...

    Aye id prefer 2 15 AQs over Type Rs as well...BUT price is a huge factor. Aqs are hand made and with a base price of $300 each if im not mistaking?

    Actually $180 :P. Didnt bother looking at the site since I was sure that AQ subs are all pricey. BUT since their like $10 less than a Type R...I will for sure most likely will be snagging 2.

    Less than I thought lmao.
