My first Build need help picking setup for 1000W RMS sub for hard hitting bass

Recommended Posts

I need some help with my first real car audio system. I was given some free stuff from my brother that I would like to use. I have two amps- one rockford fortgate T800.2 and T1000.1 bd. I also have a BLOWN Sledgehammer MTX 9515.44 from a loaded enclosure(MTX9515.D). MTX is 1000W RMS 15", replacement cost $800.


I have up to 5 cu. ft of space in my 71' olds. I can run 2-12's or one 15" or one 18" or whatever. I listen to mostly Rap music and want Hard Hitting Bass. It has 6 component speakers sounding crisp n clear and as loud as possible. I am looking at RE audio, DD, Fi Audio, SoundQubed,W7,am I heading towards the right direction? Some of the subs are rated 800W rms and 1200W rms, is that too low or high for my 1000W RMS amp?


Need help figuring out what to do? I am on information overload, need help from the experienced. $800 bucks for a replacement MTX sub or just buy all new? I have $1000 to spend.

Get the mtx 9500 Reconed will be the cheapest..and it can be made into a monster also.. plus that motor is good for more then 1000 watts.

For 1000.00 and that much space available, we have some 15s and 18s that'll fill your need, laugh at 1k rms and not break your budget. I could sell you a 4k and 2 15s for your 1000.00 and you'd be grinning ear to ear for quite some time.

Man I'm gonna get hated on for this but for 1000 dollars I'd get a single 13.5 inch W7 and pair it with that t1000 it would be perfect get a good box built for it I thought ny w7s were very 'hard' hitting idk why they just had something too them I havent enjoyed out of most subs I have owned (I've owned a ton) and the sq is AWESOME I'm not a fan boy but my experiences with them personally make me a fan (but I can't stand jl the compaby in all honesty)

      I bought this off ebay in July 2010. The SC line wasn't even out in my area & couldn't have been out long. This speaker looks almost brand new. There are no imperfections just normal dust. I never hooked up the Sub & decided to go minimum bass in my new car. I will cover shipping at my selling price.
      I have a set of Morel 3 ways, audiocontrol DQL-8, Linear power 3.2HV etc in other autions

      I'm new to car audio and needed help on wiring up my system. I have 2 of the 8" L7 Solobarics and an 850/2 Kicker Amp. I have been told I should wire it up 4 ohm instead of 2 ohm, is this correct? How would I go about this? and To secure my subs into the box is there any specific screw I should use or whatever? It is 3/4" mdf
