wow well im not sure how good those subs are or the speakers but they better be pretty good for that much though i dont know how much installation is either so i would say its on the high side.

though depends on the specs

yeah, 2085 and you only are getting 2 10" subs and no head unit. BullSh*t. I would go on ebay, do and you could come out with a system with 2 12"s a headunit and everything else listed for half the price.

uhm, i cant fit that
i have a 2002 chevy silverado and i want to keep my back seats ... so the only option is to put it under my back seats .... http://members.cardomain.com/comet345

also, im not going to put 2 12's under the seat just because i can, and as a result not have proper air-space, etc ...

yeah, orions are good subs but you crazy for that price. you can definately get them for cheaper than that. you can get way better for cheaper. ask around for more opinions about what to get. what are you looking for in a system?

i know orions are decent .... but i havnt heard the p-series in playing music ... but i know they are comparable to the JL 10w3v2's ...

what am i looking for? BASS ... but nothing distorted ... and like i said, i cant fit much w/o sacrificing leg room and or my back seat, or bed space... i want to keep all of the three...

and yeah, i know i can buy cheaper online, but like i said, im going to save around what ... 500 bucks, wow ... id rather pay the 500 more and not worry about hassles of online warrentys and all that bullshit... this place is right by my house, and if anything goes wrong, i can bring it in and thats it ... 500 dollars is not worth the hassle ....

Alex, it you want good subs you may wanna think about Adire Koda 10's.

also you could put 12's under the back seat of your truck, i have a buddy w/ the same model truck as you and he has 2 12's under the back seat in a down fire box....if you're worried about air space for 12's you could knock the piece of wood in the middle of a down-fire box out (the one that separates the two chambers) and just have 1 chamber w/ 2 sub in it.

thats just a suggestion though...

2 10's will sound pretty good though...JL w3v2's are nice.


if you have time own your hands (alot), you could design an enclosure kinda like mine:

It has GREAT SQ! Kinda hard to make the brahma fit and still have the back seat though.


like i said though...2 10's would give you some nice low-end.

hmm, really .... i know, you can make an interconnecting chamber and theoretically have 1 box ... was an idea of mine, and i think that is what is going to be done, but the measurements that im calculating (doesnt seem that it can be done given .75 inches of wood or .5) ... and from what i know, having 2 12's is not going to make MUCH of a difference as opposed to 2 10's ... i mean, i know that it would hit lower notes harder .... but, not really by much ...

yeah, 2 12's will not fit, i mean, yes they will, but the air space will not be the proper amount to spec... even with the center connected, to connect each box ... so 10's are it. anyone have any ideas as to if this is a good setup, good price (again, veer away from the fact that I can save 500 bucks by going online, except I am most likely going to buy my head unit online), and if this will sound nice.

Real food, I totally agree w/ you Marshall, kinda makes me want to go to Mardi Gras this year :-) 2085 not including head unit, and installation is needed? I'll leave you $500 bucks for install and box. I think you could do better personally. Remember, you don't necessarily need 2 12s. One would do if it's a good one. Go to www.woofersetc.com (I'm not saying they're the cheapest, I'm just posting this site b/c they carry it all and this simplifies the process, you can look for better prices).
Try this:
Dynaudio or Focal Utopia 6.5" components, go to $500-600 bucks for either.
Eclipse 33250 amp for the components, 130W RMSx2 at 4 ohms. $269 bucks.
MTX T942 amplifier and an Adire Audio Brahma 12" sub, with one you'd have plenty of room for airspace. $350 or so for amp, $380 for sub. If not, a 10" Brahma would work.
Go to www.knukonceptz.com for wiring.
