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.

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

i would not go with kicker subs for this...treo makes excellent equipment

i would say a single 15" SE or SX with about 800-1200w rms would do it well, in a large ported box u make out of 3/4 to 1" mdf probably run you 500 or so if u go with SX and a hifonics bx1000d

pharoh why wouldnt u buy hifonics?

I would have to say that hifonics is probably one of the best-cheapest powers you can buy! of coarse its all opinions but I have a feeling many would agree.

1) I don't want to buy treo
2) I thought MTX was junk?
3) I'm considering 2 12" v-maxes

man if he's going treo, you'll need something much more capable than vmax's...not that theyre bad, they just dont displace a whole ton of air

i.e. idmax, triple x, brahma, juggernaught, etc...

one of these can nearly destroy any compoetition you face it to

that's the thing though, I'm on a pretty tight budget. 400 or 500 for amp, box and sub(s). Are there any subs on www.sonicelectronix.com or www.onlinestereo.com that are priced under 200 that will do the trick?

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!

Alright, I will check those out but I just got done doing a little searching and what about pioneers? http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAudio/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductID=11293 those aren't too bad but I don't know if their spl or whatever is good? and I could get 2 type r 12's here too http://www.sonicelectronix.com/viewitem.php?id=47 under 250 shipped.

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.

So if I take my rear 6x9's out it'll be louder though won't it? and we would probably test it with my seats down anyway...

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.

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.

yes. the triple x is actually better than the sx. it will do the trick for sure. as long as you get some power to it, and put it in a nice box it will do it.

yeah the xx x is one of the best subs out there, powered correctly you wil beat the treos.
