    Newb with newb questions. Use pyle I have or get another pb?

    I just bought a single cab s10 not long ago. It came with a 350w max power powerbass sub with dual voice coils. A while ago my buddy decided he was going to sell off all of his car audio stuff and go to a competition grade set up. So he sold me an unused pyle 12 that maxs out at 1200w and has 2 4 ohm voice coils. (says blue wave on box) for $20. I rewired the PB sub and put 200w through each voice coil and decided when it destroyed itself I would build a box and get a new amp for the pyle. That was 2 or 3 weeks ago and its still going strong. I'm really suprised by it and now I'm trying to decide if I should sell the pyle and get a powerbass 12 or not. I would really appreciate any advice or criticism you guys will give me.

    what amplifier do you have? There are alot of good deals for equipment online. Your best bet is to find someone who will buy what you want to sell locally and then let us knwo what kind of budget you have to work with.

    Honestly, if I were you, I would sell the amp and the subs and buy something off here. Are you set on keeping any of it?

    Subs: 2 12 Incriminator Audio Lethal Injections
    Amp: Hifonics Brutus BRZ1200.1D
    Speakers & Amp: Focal PC 690 & MMATS SQ4100
    Headunit: Eclipse 7200 MKII
    Box: 4 cubes tuned to 32hz

    Not set on keeping any of it. But I only make around $150 @ week and most of that is going into building a 3.4 for my truck and buying an lsd rear end. So my budget is pretty much whatnot get out of this stuff + 20 or $30 a month. And my truck is a single cab so any decent sized sub is going to be a challenge to get to fit. There also isn't going to be alot of space in the box. I was told pillow stuffing would make the sub think its in a bigger box than it is?

    If you're happy with the Pyle build a good solid ported box and leave it alone. You'll want much more later on but that's what's funny about car audio. More, more, more is never enough.
