    If you really dont care what it sounds like dont go AQ. Spend a bit more and get just as loud and sound WAY better

    Re: New Car New System Time, Would Love Some Rec's

    Thanks for all the help, but now I got a few different opinions.

    I'm hearing AQ and Fi, and one for American Bass.

    What would you say would be the difference? I listen to rap and a little dubstep if that matters.

    AQ is on sale and gets down. Fi q would be good if you want a better sound quality that can still get loud. Its a preference for what you like your the one that has to listen to it everyday. I like the slamming low bass and my AQ slams the lows and it might not have as much sound quality but i just like loud and the sound quality is fine for me. I listen to alot of dub and it is awesome.

    Crescendo 3500d paired with SSA Xcons or AQ HDC3's would be fun.

    Re: New Car New System Time, Would Love Some Rec's

    OK this is what I'm thinking, after reading the thread about ssa vs aq I want to go with SSA.


    So this is what I want:
    2 10" icons
    1 Unknown amp for them
    1 navi/touch headunit
    1 custom box

    where should I proceed from here?

    Well I confused myself again as I was not aware there are multiple SSA lines, so I really just know I want SSA.

    And I wouldn't try to run 3500w. It's not necessary but every noob on here will recommend it over and over again.

    Re: New Car New System Time, Would Love Some Rec's

    Would I need to do any elec upgrades for 2 Icons? and which amp for them? I checked out the crescendo but that one is 3800ish so I think that one is meant for the Xcons

    2000 watts rms would be fine ,american bass vfl 120.1 or 150.1 .sundown saz 2500 or 2000, or a dc 2.0.anything over 2k you'll need to do electrical upgrades .you still also need 0 gauge wires for the amp as well as the big 3 kit .

    ab vfl 350.4 ,7 pc 2150 and a 150 ah power ware agm ,275 amp singer alt , 2nd one coming soon

    OK thanks. I thought the icons were 1250 rms though? Would i need to upgrade elec for 2500? if so what would I need to do?

    Lastly are you only selling those american bass subs or do you have anything else? I'd like to support you since you've been so helpful.

    Re: New Car New System Time, Would Love Some Rec's

    if you went with the ab subs and amp i can have them at your door in 4-7 days,dc would be 7-10 day build time on the subs and not sure about ssa subs there may be a build time for them as well.they are good subs as well ,but the best bang for your buck would be the xfl ,a pair will take up to 3k easy if you can back the amps power with your electrical .but 2k on them will still be pretty loud .

    Ok forgive the noob but how would i go about figuring out electrical upgrades? also xfl which one were they? the fi?

    also i wish i could hear them, i have no clue how loud 2k would even be. i just dont want to buy and install some and be dissapointed and have to deal with selling and buying again.
