okay heres the deal, me n my friends were all 15/16 and getting subs and stuff, i know one of my friends is getting some sh*tty duals with a nitro sub, bu my other 3 friends are getting good stuff like jbl/kicker/rockford fosgate, so i need to get a entire system that will beat that for sure for around 350$, any ideas?, i know all my friends didn't spend more then about 350$/400 the one with the duals spent like 200 for everthing

dude you can take them with a $300 budget, as long as you arent going to upgrade your deck. many say youll need to get a new deck but if your just going for bass just buy a sub, box, amp, and wiring kit. i recommend maybe a kicker crv. then get a $150 amp.

no subs wont depreciate much plus thats like 7 less months of listening to whatever you get. if there is any way to get a 15" in you trunk i have a Kicker in a sealed box that ill sell you for cheap. i also have a rockford fosgate 300w amp that pushes the sub perfect. ill give you everything for way cheaper than the internet, then you can use the extra money for some front speakers.

depreciation out of the store the first day and 1 year later is the same as long as no dents or dings, but dont go with kicker, go with lke an atlas or somen somen noone else has, but i still suggest the 15 w0

so is 1 15" going to be better then 2 12's? and people are still telling me to get the new ascent audio atlas for 145$(12") or 160$(15"), and the only way to get a 15 in my trunk is to use the intire trunk and i golf ALOT so thats not going to work out

but maybe your box will fit what dimensions is it? and how much is your deal with the 15"/box and amp(whats the rms on the amp)

Equipment/Materials Total - ~420-435 bucks

Shipping(etronics) - ~$22

Shipping Atlas - ?

Shipping Total - $50?

Total - ~$480

The Atlas 12 will definitely sound better than your friends' stuff, but if you want to guarantee you have more SPL then you need to find a way to fit the 15. Maybe if you slanted the box's rear face it'd go in there. Oh and make sure you find a way to couple the trunk's airspace to the cabin. Removing the rear deck speakers(if you have em) is the easiest way.

As far as saving money by going w/o the h/u(knock off about $130), you could, but you'd have to either get a line out converter(LOC) or go with an amp /w hi-level inputs. Either way you're going to sacrifice sound quality.

The nice thing about the Rub 300-2(I own one) is that it doubles as a great mid/high amp(75x2 @ 4 ohms) if you ever want to upgrade say with another Atlas 12(if you go that route, x 2 sealed), a 600w sub amp, and some decent coax's/components.

just keep your stock system, and go steal everything your friends have.. leaving them with nothing.
you'll be the loudest car and it won't cost you a penny.

dude I ran a JL 15w0 in my car once. The system consisted of this.
Sony XRU-880(head unit) very old haha
boston acoustic pro 6.5;s
infinity 6x9's
sony 10 disc changer
Rockford fosgate power 650(very old)
JL 15w0

Now I ran this entire system off of that fosgate amp. I was running two channel's bridged to the sub, and the other 4 speakers on the front two channel's. The JL sounded OK for about 4hours untill I cooked the SH!T out of it with only 325 watts so I dont even want to hear about putting 500 of good clean watts(not audiobahn) to that sub. I had a warranty on it so I returned it and got the Old JBL 1500GTI sub and ran that sub for two years flawlessly. by the way the JBL was much louder and sounded better then the w0. JL w0 is their bottom level sub I dont like it nor would I ever recomend it. The atlas will walk all over it!!!!!!!

right now i have a friend running a RF amp to it, i dont know the model number, its 500 watts rms to MY EXACT OLD SUB, and i ran 750 watts rms from a pa amp, and 550 watts from my interfire amp i still have to it, and that sub got really really loud, louder than my 2 p3's or most subs, that sub can take alot and i never once heard it distorted

that deck you recommended will it play mp3's?

No, but this Alpine will:

http://www.etronics.com/product.asp?stk_code=alpcde9845&store=&catid=317

http://www.alpine-usa.com/

The 9843 will too and is a bit cheaper, but etronics is out of stock and the thing has only one set of preouts anyways.

There are some cheaper Clarion decks that will as well, but they're not the pro audio line so I'm a lil iffy on their build quality.

If you just want to blast your friends just get a cheap LOC and use the factory h/u. You can always upgrade later.

Actually here's a good one at a decent price:

http://www.davidnavone.com/detail.asp?PRODUCT_ID=NE-8V

http://www.davidnavone.com/adaptor_products.htm

Just realize if you do plan on eventually going with an aftermarket h/u this is kind of wasted money, but if you're limited on funds and you got to have somethin to impress your friemds now..... well it'll save you about a 150 bucks.

Another option is to find a 2 channel amp that has high-level inputs, but unfortunately most of the one's I've seen aren't what I'd consider top of the line, or even close.

Maybe someone could make a suggestion.
