    Help me build a system for my MOM!!

    Here's the deal... We (Dad & I) just surprised my mom with a brand new Chevy Malibu MaXX. This thing is SOWEEET!! Anyways, we proceeded to listen to the radio/CD's because our old car didnt have such "necessities" =( Problem is that she kinda complains about there being a shortage of bass in some of her songs... This is where I come in. I was thinking that I could hook her up w/ a small compact system to give her a slight boost in bass while not losing trunk space or overpowering the stock components. I was thinking somewhere along the lines of this...
    RE 8"
    .5 cu. ft sealed box
    50 wrms amp

    Im hoping to do this under $100 since an RE 8 is $60 shipped, i need an amp that will give her about 50-75 wrms preferably in the $40-$50 range. I might go and check out some Wal-Mart amps here in the next few days. Any advice on a dirt cheap amp?

    Drop a Buttkicker under her seat and feed it about 1000 watts. That ought to rock her world. I dunno, I hear girls like that sort of thing.

    You can tell from the look on the face of the girl that's on their homepage picture:

    an RE8 would be great. I would just do 2. Besides, they're cheap, small, and sound great.

    Go on ebay you can get profile amps so cheap! Like 60 bucks shipped! If you are using your stock HU you need to get an amp with "hi level inputs" instead of rcas.



    Current setup...
    Infinity 6.5s
    Infinity 6x9s
    Alpine Car Alarm for $14.00 installed (Workin at CC)

    Future Mods:
    Alpine 9825
    Speakers
    Some Amps
    More subs than my car can handle (Four)
    Hydraulics on a Stratus? Sure why not...
