    Subwoofer Compatibility Check

    I have a 13 plate Corsa VXR and want to install a subwoofer into it. I'm pretty clueless when it comes to audio so I'm a bit stuck. My stereo is a AVH-Z9100DAB. Does this have an amplifier built into it that'll run a subwoofer? If not, how do I go about getting the correct amplifier for this...

    $300-$500 setup

    Looking to upgrade my subwoofer setup, I would prefer for it to stay under $300 for just subs and box or $500 for subs, amp, box. 2 12’s or 15’s would be best with at least 1200rms total. Drop any advice, setups, or questions May consider building the box, but limited on time with work and school.

    How to wire 2 2-ohm dual-coil subwoofers to create a 2-ohm load?

    So I can either wire each sub’s coils in parallel to create 1 ohm each, then wire the subs in series to create a total of 2 ohm load. OR I can wire each sub’s coils in series to create 4 ohms each, then wire the subs in parallel to create a total of 2 ohm load. Does it matter which way I go with?

    How do I tune both my Amp and my Line Out Converter?

    I am confused on how you tune an amp and line out converter at the same time. I have an LP7-2 LOC, and R1100M Amp and they both have gain knobs on it. I understand that for each, if tuning by ear, you need to put your radio at 3/4ths volume, play a 40hz test tone, and then turn the gain knobs up...
