    OP-
    The local shop is not a bad option. However, making things look good behind fiberglass and trim panels is the easy part. Not saying they don't do the design right, just saying that "pretty" does not mean functional all the time. Just remember that who ever you go to for your enclosure does not just toss a few numbers around with out taking your application and response curves for what you want into consideration.


    I'm sure no matter which way you go you will be more then happy/impressed with the results.
    ^ This ^ If you go the local shop route be sure that you can fully trust that they will handle the design before they consider cosmetics because you want good equipment for optimal sound not so much for the looks. If you just went for looks whats the point of caring about the quality. The enclosure is the backbone of a substage. Around here (locally) I stray people away from the local shops because they don't consider much other than making it look great in your car and the equipment lacks the optimal performance that the equipment need. Just have to be careful who/how the enclosure is made, for it is so vital. Some people just don't understand the importance of enclosures.

    1 power acoustik bamf5500d(puts out a little over 2200)$228 new,, ran mine at .5ohm daily no problem
    bassrockers 1" thick mdf ported enclosure $77

    Look for an amp that does the power you're looking for at 2 ohms.

    Well I already bought an sa 15. Plus that 500 budget is firm and I have stock electric so 2200 wrms is too much.

    Re: 500$ budget for new amp and sub

    An amp like this: Kicker 06ZX1000.1 Mono amp would be perfect. good price, good quality, a little underrated, and it does the power at 2 ohms.
