I've been out of the car audio scene for probably 4-5 years now and I'm planning on jumping back in.. Due to a new job I drive 100+ miles a day so I had to get rid of my old car and get into something more fuel efficient and "dailyable". I'm going back and forth on what sub/subs I want to run. I plan on getting a HO Alt and get my electrical all sorted before I even purchase an Amp and sub, but my first build thoughts was a Sundown SAE 3k on a Sundown X 18. I used to run Sundown SA 15's in my explorer back in the day and always wanted to move to an X or Z series sub but just never did. If you have any suggestions or recommendations please let me know. I'm excited to get back into the game.

**EDIT** Just seen the sticky thread my bad.


Number of subs preferred:1>2

Size preferred (if configuration allows): Prefer 15-18's looking for lows.

Budget:~$600 give or take

Power to be used (which amp(s), include which resistance): SAE 3k @ 1ohm

Space available (take measurements, do not guess): 6cuft

Goals: Solid Daily drive build

Listening habits: 80% Rap 20% electronic

Preferred brands/subs/whatever: +- Used to only run Sundown, would prefer to keep it "all in the family" to the amp.

Most will suggest the Taramps Smart3 or the MD5K possibly for that sub. They would be easier on your electrical. The MD5 would give you more headroom and allow for a future upgrade to two subs if needed. Just make sure your electrical is straight. You may not need the HO alternator with the Smart3.

Well, you said in you original post that you were thinking of getting a HO alternator and getting your electrical straightened out.
