Okay, so my friend plans on getting 2 12" treo's (not sure on tsx, ssx or csx though). He thinks the stereo guy in town knows all and that guy pushes treo treo treo. My friend isn't loaded but still "doesn't care" how much he spends on his system. I want to spend 4 or 500 on amp, sub(s) and box. Is there ANY way I can get a system that will beat his?
btw, I have a '96 corsica with half the trunk to work with.
a kicker l7 12" dual 2-ohm sub. a hifonics btx1000d amp. id get a 4 guage wiring kit as well. the amp is about $200 and the sub is about $200 as well. as for a box id build one urself out of 1"mdf. have a shop around on ebay.
Have you taken a look at the MTX products?. They are under-rated systems and have good sound. Couple tens in the box would be worth around 250ish, and the amp around the same price, 4 guage kit and ur set. Personal preferance i wouldent buy Hifonix. but the L7 is a good woofer to go with.

Dont forget its rated around 750 watts RMS, so you are going to need sum money and power to push it. Go quality
2-type r 12's(ebay $250 shipped) 1-kicker 600.1(ebay $235 shipped) and get a box either off ebay or somewhere else for like $50-60 and your right at your budget or just a tad over and it should slam prety good!
I would go with the type r's over the pioneer especially if you want to have any shot at competing with those treo's. Also what vehicle does he have the treo's in and what are you driving? this will make a big difference as well.
I would get the typpe r over every one of those speakers you were looking at! The cerwin vega's were the only decent speakers that were on there and the alpines are much better in my opinion. The sony's are just absolute crap you wouldnt beat 2-6in treo's with that sony 15. The kickers are decent but again go with the alpine's. Its gonna be really hard for you to compete against your frien just because the eclipse's are hatchback's and I believe yours is a trunk. You would really have to port it well into your car. I dont know man its gonna be a tough one for you.
i dont think that two type Rs are going to get as loud as you want them to. i would listen to its bacon 12 and get a re sx but instead of the hifonics go with a orion 1200d. the amp will run you about 250. you can build the box. type Rs will not get as loud as wo treos. the sx will.
oh ya spend some money on a whole lot of sound deadener. there are all kinds of alternitives than dynamat just look around and do a search. this will give you an advantage over your friend. you gotta love the friend rivalry. thats why i got into car audio. to be louder than my friend. but now i am and im in to it because i love it
Not a lot you can do to beat those Treos with your budget. Not being mean, with the hobby you get what you pay for though. 2 15s is a must if you want to beat him, you'll need the sheer displacement. Something like two Adire Tempests and a JBL 600.1 for them will run within your budget. The SX's would do a great job too. Ported box definately, tune around 40hz if you want more SPL, 32-35 for more music listening.
