So I got some money together and a better job. I want something where I look at it, I can say “this mf is bulletproof” I’m going to have a friend build me a sealed box.
I am not sure if I want two 12s or two 15s or one 12 or one 15. Which setup should I choose? Is having two subs better than one? I know one sub with more surface area and more watts will be better than let’s say 2 subs with half the surface area and half the watts. But there is so much I want, but I can’t choose a setup. So here I am coming to you guys for some help! Thank you!

Okay so basically don't have a lot of knowledge about car audio systems just want my car to be obnoxiously loud. I have a 4 channel amp, 4 speakers and 2 subs. Can someone direct me to an installation guide to make it easier. Also is it possible to have all 4 speakers and 2 subs hooked up to 1 amp or hook 2 of the speakers straight to the headunit cheers

Hey everyone, I'm pretty new to car audio, and I have some questions on mono amps and subs.
I just purchased 2 10 inch subs. They are the Polk Audio DB 1042 SVC. It's a 4-ohm sub with single voice coils. I also purchased a sealed box for these subs. (https://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_1747.html)
The box has 2 separate spots on the back for connections. One on the left and one on the right. I also have this amp. (https://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_93307.html) It's a 750 rms class d 2 ohm (stable) mono amp. I also purchased an 8 gauge amp wiring kit.
Now, I know how to wire the ground, power, and remote turn on. That's a breeze for me. It's wiring the sub to the amp that I'm not good with. With my system I have, shown above, could someone give me specific instructions on how to first, connect the subs to the outputs on the enclosure? In other words, how to wire the back of the subs to the enclosure before screwing in the subs. And 2nd, how to wire the amp to those sub outputs correctly.
Hello peeps hey so I have a bit of a situation,, I have a 2007 Cadillac CTS that I have been installing a system on now for a while it’s a pain but fun car,
here is the question
the head unit is still oem if you guys don’t know these car have the “driver info” section here as well as other functions such as the traction control and millege trip info as well as other important settings I really want to replace with a nice doble din with a back up cámara but.. I don’t want to lose the functionality of the oem anyone have any suggestions as to how we might be able to do this? Also I want to keep this covertion of the head unit less than 600$ in parts I can do my labor. Thank you in advance
Looking to fix/upgrade audio system in 05 GTO.
Front L/R Tweeters: Stock
Door L/R Speakers: Rockford Fosgate R165x3 6.5in 3-way Coaxials
Rear Seat Door Panel Speakers: Rockford Fosgate R165x3 6.5in 3-way Coaxials
Rear Deck Speakers: Stock
Trunk Amp: Stock
HU: JVC KD-AVX77
I'm far from an audiophile. The head united was installed by the previous owner. Reason for replacing is that all of the speakers tweak and are audibly broken at a certain volume. I replaced the door and rear side panel speakers hoping that would fix it. Turns out the tweeters still tweak and need replaced. Also the car lacks significant bass.
The Rockford Fosgate speakers were a cheap fix to attempt to fix the broken audio system.
Don't need an audiophile setup, but being able to turn up the speakers without worry that it will cut out or tweak, while still having bass is my goal.
The tweeters are getting replaced, as they are broken.
Do I replace the rear deck speakers to something with more bass capability or would this not create a significant difference? Do I need to add a amp/sub? Do I need to do both? Do I need to toss the Rockford Fosgate speakers and head unit and start from scratch?
Preferably the less work the better, so if I do not have to figure out how to install an amp/sub then I won't. Pretty much the entire interior of the car is going to get taken out in order to get to all of these speakers, so I figured I'd post and ask you guys before I do so to get some help. I'm not on an extreme budget, but I don't need to blow my wallet on some speakers for a car (the Rockford Fosgate speakers I bought were $35 a pair on amazon). If I need to spend a little more to get some better stuff that isn't junk then let me know please.
If you need any other information I'll try my best to respond and add it, but I just typed this up real quick hoping to get some guidance of what I should go with and do.
