    Just Getting Into Some Car Audio

    Ok so I just purchased a new Mazda 3 hatchback and want to out in a woofer or 2. I have about $300 which I know isnt much but should get a some decent gear. $300 includes Speakers, Amp, and Enclosure. I'v been looking into getting maybe 2x10's or 1x12. If someone could possibly reccomend me a setup that would be great because I'm really confused about the amps such as the 1,2,3 and multiple channels how all this works.

    IF your getting a single sub or just two and that's all your powering i'd get a monoblock.. Cheap amps that i know of are the Audiopipe amps and hifonics for really cheap..

    You can get last years gen of the Type R's for super cheap like 80 or so brand new for one if you can find it and you can build your own enclosure for super cheap. 3/4 MDF here is $30 for a sheet and all you need is caulk, glue, screws, and a terminal cup. IF you have a table saw/jigsaw it will be cake. Go to any LOwe's/ Home Depot. Get a box design from someone of here and youll be set.

    Does a 1 channel amp mean I can only power 1 sub?

    No, you can hook up as many subs as you want just as long as the final impedance is within the amp's specification. Granted the power will be split amongst all the speakers as long as they all have the same coil impedance.
