    Bass on a budget advice?

    I want to put some bass in my son's 97 Toyota Avalon sedan for him. Need to keep the price at no more than $250 for the subs, mono amp, and amp wiring. My suggestion is a single 12" Kenwood KFC-W3013PS which holds 400 watts RMS and comes in a sealed box for $85 shipped. My mono amp to match up with sub I'm thinking is the Pioneer GM-D7500M which puts out 400 watts RMS at 2 ohms for $127 shipped. Both are brand new not refurbished. The 4 gauge amp wiring kit is The InstallBay AK4 which was rated a 4.4 out of 5 stars by 67 users for $30. Total price for a 400 watt RMS system $242. What do you guys think of the set up and can anyone find me a better set up for that price?



    Vehicle: 1986 Olds 98 sedan
    Headunit: Kenwood Excelon KDC-X396
    Front dash: 3.5's Sound Ordnance™ P-35
    Rear deck: 6.5's Kenwood KFC-G1620
    Subwoofers: two 10" Kenwood KFC-W2513PS
    Sub amp: 500 watt Kenwood KAC-8105D
    Amp wiring: EFX 8 guage
    Box: sealed Sound Ordnance

    It will work fine

    It will give you bass, but don't expect unrealistic results from it.

    So that leaves a whopping $10 for an enclosure
