    500$ budget for new amp and sub

    I currently have a jl 8w3 in a ported box that jl made running off a jl jx250/1in an acura rsx. It sounds much better than the 6x9s obviously but I'm not anywhere near satisfied. My friend has a 10'' Orion Xtr pro with a 500 watt zstat amp in a sealed box in a subaru wrx. It hits a lot harder than my sub and i can feel my hair vibrate but I want more. I'm looking at 2 12" kicker cvrs, 1 12" kicker l7, 1 15" alpine type r, etc, and any other suggestions are greatly appreciated. The amp I am going to buy will probably be the kicker zx750.1. I dont care too much about sq but I want very loud but have limited power as I have stock electrical and I am not planning on ever upgrading alternator, big 3, etc. What do you guys suggest?

    how much is your budget for sub and amp?

    LOOL nvm, read title..

    Id get an 12" hdc3 and you can probably find an mbquart 1500.1 which will equal up to about $500.

    As for the enclosure, you should get it custom made. The price would just be from whoever builds it for you. I dont recommend using a prefab enclosure at all.

    Found that amp for 200$ but cannot find the sub anywhere. Btw the box is also an issue. I can't make one and the audio place near me charges over 100$ for any box. I heard atrend and audio enhancers make alright prefabs.

    aq hdc3 << thatll rape the kicker l7

    From anything, id use the super bass pro box for prefab. Going custom would still be the best bet.

    Looked at the sa 12 it looks alright, too. You think it will be louder than the 2 cvrs? That's a lot more cone area, but I don't have any experience with them.

    Infinity 1600a Reference Series Class D Monoblock Amplifier

    Orion XTRPRO124 (XTRPRO-124) 12" Dual 4 ohm Subwoofer

    FMOD (Filter Module) High Pass RCA Level Crossover = 30hz version

    that comes to $321 then invest the rest in a ported box built to Orion specs which is pretty small (1.5cf3) which'll be nice and light weight for your RSX

    Well I have time to decide but wow there are just so many options that would be better than what I have now. I want the loudest for my money, though, while still being musical of course.

    Re: 500$ budget for new amp and sub

    you could do a lethal injection 15 or sa-15. brand new a little over $200.00. then get an audioque 750 which is $199.00 then save up for a custom box.

    subwoofer
    amp
    custom box

    that extra couple hundred you spend over 500 would be worth it.

    or do an audioque hdc3 12 with a mb quartz onyx 1500. then get a custom box.
