    Whats all this talk about ports?

    Oh hey, I'm fairly new to car audio but been doing some research over the past few weeks and I've decided to do a build on a budget (500-600)

    I have a 99 XLT explorer
    New stock alt (90a at idle 130a at 1200rpm)
    NAPA Gold batt (stock like)
    No Big 3 upgrade
    Final independence must be 1 or 2 ohm

    My current setup is 4 infinity 6832 powered by an Ample Audio 242x with a 2x6ohm load. This provides me great SQL but I'm looking to do my first SPL build as a daily driver and beat out the local guys.

    I don't have any first hand experience with aftermarket subs, so before I click "check out" I would like to get some opinions.

    I've been looking at purchasing the following subs:
    FI SSD 12
    FI X 12
    Skar vvx 12
    Lethal Injection 12
    Funky pup 12

    Both (2) subs will be powered a AQ 1200.1 If you have links to box plans this will be really helpful because all I can find is pics of peoples final box completion and this does not help me out at all. It's almost like some kind of classified file to find box plans.

    Thanks talyorfade I'm currently trying to track to two funky pups. I heard two 8" pups caused the world trade towers to fall, so two 12s might even be harder to find!

    You realize I was kidding, right?

    I'd go Fi.

    I'd place them in this order...

    Fi
    Lethal Injection
    Funky Pups
    Skar

    What's the budget for subs alone though?

    Get these mint subs right here.
    2 FI q 15teens fully upgraded from fi

    Upgrade the amp to AQ2200D if you can

    and hit up @double 07 ; for any box you need built rather it be 12s, 15s, etc.

    WOW fast replies. Budget for the subs is 200$ each and thats not MRSP. I can go 300 each but I'd really like to try to keep it around 500 for two. If I go outside that I will need a few more months to save on $.

    @caddie: I can upgrade to 2200.1 but I'm worried I will have to put more money towards electrical upgrades like alt, batteries, big 3.
