I am currently in the process of upgrading the audio system in my car and am wondering where to start.The car is a 1990 corolla gti-16 hatch with:
2 pyramid gold series 6*9s in the parcel shelf
2 tweeters on the dash aircon vents
2 in dash 4 inch speakers
an alpine cde 7822e head deck

I am particularly interested in getting a sub into the car but am wondering about brand/amp etc.

As i am a student I am on a fairly low budget but i am able to do the install my self.


If you just want to add some bass, go to a local shop, pick up a Rockford Fosgate or Kicker 10" sub and a box to stick it in, buy a 150w mono amp...that actually puts out 150w, and you'll have your bass.

It will not be the best, but it will beat what you've got.

Just my opinion!

need a little more info. Like how much base you want, and how much money you are willing to part with. lol

Wtf is that lol.
Well for 300$, u could go with a v-max, u usually find them 125 a piece shipped. With the rest of the money, buy yourself an amp on ebay, a used or refurbished one would be perfect.

I agree with Paddy on this one. But remember you still need to get the amp wiring kit. Ever thought of getting a powered sub enclosure??? They are inexpensive and take very little room.
