Hey guys, I'm new to this forum, but have been reading alot of posts. And you guys seem to know what your talking about, and have good sugestions, so I'm comin to you for help. My next system I want to be nice. All I know is that I'd like to have 3 12's but I dont know what brand is good, and I dont know what amps are good or how many I need. Or really anything, so I you guys could help me, it'd be greatly appreciated. thanks.
Personaly, I like JL audio subs and Rockford Fosgate amps. I havent listened any JL amps, but I have heard people say they are good. Other subs are Adire Audio, RE, Alpine, Eclipse, Rockford, Kicker, JBL, Cerwin Vega, and others I cant think of right now. It really depends on your budget.
Well, I bought an old JL 12W3D4 from my friend with a box for $100. When I had enough to buy a head unit and amp I went to Mobile One and got raped(too expensive). But after learning from that and learning from other experience with car audio I got to the point where I know what I want and how its gonna sound. Lets see, my friends have better stuuf than I do because they have 15's. One has a Punch HX2 15 in a box he built to specs with a punch 401s amp, it hits HARD. My other friend has a kicker L7 15 in a box that we all built, it is 8.5cu.ft. slot port and he has a Rockford Power 501bd, and this thing slams extremely hard. I've also helped other people install stuff and things like that. Now, I built my own box for my JL and it slams way harder than it did in a Q-Logic sealed box I used to have. Still the same amp Punch 150s, but I am getting a new amp, P3001. close to the same thing but mono block.
Probably two or three 12's. Kicker L5 or L7 or JL W7 or RE(never heard them but they get good reviews) or Brahma extreme or maybe some last year model RF power HX2 as for amp RFpower 1001bd,1501bd kicker 1200.1 JBL what ever one is big enough. O yeah, the kicker solo X is suposed to be bad @$$, but Im sure other people would say there is better stuff which there prolly is.
