    I need help!

    I am a new driver wanting to get some subs in my car to show off at school. I have a 2012 Scion tC and I was needing to know first of all a sick set up that I could get for under $700. I'd like to have dual 12 Kicker L3s, but I don't know what all I'd need for it. Also would I need to upgrade anything, get a new battery, ect.? Please let me know.

    New driver with a 2012 tC? Wish I was that lucky....

    Definitely don't buy the Kickers. You willing/able to build your own subwoofer box? If so, take some measurements of your trunk, see what the max dimensions you have to work with are. Do you want 2 12's, or is a single 15" in the cards? Depending on the size of your trunk a single 12" or 15" might be better and easier for you.

    Are you only wanting amp/subs? Or you looking for head unit, front speakers, 4 channel amp, etc.?

    Re: I need help!

    Im just wanting the subs and amp with a speaker head if needed because i think the pioneer audio in my car already has rca outputs.

    i also want the dual 12's for sure.

    i think this is what im aiming for:Audio Savings | 2 Kicker S15L3-2 L3 Subs+Vented Box+HifonicsAmp + Wires

    First off, stop aiming for Kicker. Do you just want this to look good or actually sound good? Then go take some measurements. Are you willing/able to build your own box? And what do you mean by a "speaker head"?

    ok thanks. I'll definitely keep it in mind. Do you know if I'd need to upgrade my alternator?

    I have no clue what the big 3 is...I've seen people mention it, but no clue. If it helps to know this, I am 15 and just starting research on some subs so I don't know anything about them.

    There is a sticky on it in the electrical section. It's easy.
