Sup forum my buddy wants to do a build on his vw jetta. Nothing crazy he just wants something that will sound good at a low price. He wants to run 4 door speakers and a single 15 off of a single amp. My question is what are the best recommendations yall can give. He like the pioneer 1000w 4ch amp on sale on amazon along with a rockford p3 15inch also on sale the svc model 500w max sub. Is that a good match? Basically thats his price range. As for box hes thinking of building his own but if theres a box that would work nicely for the sub and spacing that be an extra bonus help. Thanks in advance

DEEZ what? 🥜🥜 Sorry, couldn't resist.

That's a P1 sub brother. There are plenty of 75w x4 + 500w x 1 - 5 channel amps out there for little money. If it were me, that's what I would find. Single amp to run the whole car.

Few $s more and get a decent sub for the money. I personally would run a 12 and I would run at a 2ohm load to be honest

This is the sub and amp he found interest in. As for the components i have no idea what they are yet.
Thats exactly what i told him that a t ch that can run both would be the best choice. Question is which ones do you reccomend at little money.

And lol thats what the name was made for haha

I forgot about these guys. I picked up 8 - 10inch subs from them (4dvc2 and 4dvc2) pretty cheap. Javelins I believe. Put a pair in an enclosure and ran them for a week, on a PPI Phantom 1000.1 and they did very nice. Shipping was really good on them without any damage.

I like the specs on that 5 ch, price looks reasonable too. I wonder how cool it will run with that sub channel. the last 5 ch Ive ran was my Elemental Designs Nine5..Ive ran a couple other 5 ch, and they get hot and seem to get over worked at times slamming majority of the day and hard to find a decent sub channel with 600 watts on up at a decent price..Might not hurt to place a cooling fan on it if installed in trunk space for sure

I swear the infinity's i had in my first beater car is were i got introduced to that brand. Sad that the car had to go along with them (i installed them using rivets)

That sub looks interesting to be honest i might go for that since i just popped one of the 2 donors i currently have in my set up.
