As far as a budget.. I don't know because there are so many different options out there. All I know is what the shop offered me, and that was at $2500 with everything installed, a box, battery, subs, comps, wires, 2 amps, dynamate, labor, LC2 switch/kill switch.. I mean the original budget was for $2500 for everything.. and I am being told that I can get different equipment that will sound or will be louder/better quality than a memphis setup.. so with that being said.. I would stick with a $2500 budget which would include every...thing..
okay.. well ... thanks for that info.. however.. since I'm a newbie.. I have no idea what you have in your ride based on abbreviations.
HU: VR-3 - what is this, and where can I find it?
Front Stage: Stock (Powerbass Xtreme 6x9s on the way!) - what is a front stage? and where can I find these?
Sub Stage: GPI Attitude 15" - I think I get this one.. your subs.. or one sub? a 15"?
Sub Amp: AQ2200D @ 1ohm
Highs Amp: SSL EV2.1600D
Electrical: KNU 1/0AWG, Stock batt/alt, XS Power D3100 - know nothing about this.. how much is this upgrade?
Box: 3.6cu. ft @ 30hz - hz?
I know these are silly *** questions.. believe it or not, I'm 33. I just don't know this ****.
VR-3 is a brand of head unit. I got it for cheap
Front stage is the speakers in the front of the vehicle, in my case i replaced the door speakers with Powerbass Xtreme series 6x9
Sub stage is well.. the sub. It's a single 15 (It's ~$460 new)
Sub amp. Audioque 2200D @ 1ohm (1ohm is how its wired, very easy to do)
High Amp - Thats the amplifier powering the Front Stage
Electrical - KNU is the wire brand i use. KNU Kollossus its called, got just enough for to make it. The only other upgrade is the XS Power D3100 ($350 new)
Box - Had it custom built by a box builder, the tuning is what determines what frequencies your woofer sounds best at or around. It's all about musical preference
edit: I paid around $1700 all said and done at the end.
If anything to get out of this, im not telling you what to buy. Im just telling you that you can great a loud and clean as hell setup for less than $2000. Definition of 'loud' on this forum is... well way out of our league
(assuming 2000watts, not 200)As for batteries, i always recommend XS power: XS Power D2400 - $300. Never hurts to go too big, and better off for if you do wish to upgrade later.
You are probably getting lost at this point: The installation was easy as hell for this. Hardest part is finding a conduit to run the power wire from front to back, thats the worst part.
