    Help a n00b please

    I'm looking for a new headunit, subs, and an amp. I've been looking for 2 12s I think, but I would be open for other ideas. I have about $600 to spend for all of it, so what would be a good setup with this budget?

    That's a tall order for good equipment. Used will get you more for your money tho. Of you want new. I'd go with a cz 702 1 better sub and amp But you'll still need wires and a box

    I'd get a used headunit out of the classifieds. Something preferably with USB and aux or maybe a new Pioneer, Kenwood, Clarion, etc. You should be able to do alright with 150 bucks. For an amp there's an Arc Audio 600.1 and plenty of others in the classifieds for around 125 shipped. Get a couple SQ HDS200 12's for 170 bucks and it leaves a little left over for a custom box. Doesn't leave a lot for wiring and everything though.

    Re: Help a n00b please

    I have a $80 Kenwood headunit and it works great, USB and aux input, 2v subwoofer/rear pre outs. You could get one or 2 sundown E series or maybe an Obsidian Audio sub. Soundstream and Hifonics amps aren't too expensive, possibly a cheaper Pioneer or Kenwood amp if you're into name brand stuff. Sky High car audio sells great power wire and accessories at awesome prices. My home depot sells 4' x 8' x 3/4" mdf for $35 and to finish it up i'd go ahead and browse Joann's fabric store for something cool to cover your box with...

    P.S. Set aside like $20 for box building materials! (Glue, screws, spray adhesive)
    P.P.S Set aside like $50 for random stuff that WILL come up during the installation process of your setup. (ZipTies, Split Loom, electrical tape, maybe gauge adapters, solder and a torch to make nice ring terminal connections, band-aids)
