i was lookin for subs, amp, and some speakers to go in my 91 chevy s10 extended cab. i like sq more than spl and wanted to know if 1 15" or 2 12"s would be better. i was lookin at 2 rf stage 1 12's or an mtx 4500 15. for an amp i was lookin at kenwood kac 7202 150w rms x2 for the rf's, or a soundstream rubicon 300w rms x1 for the mtx. for the speakers i was thinking of boston acoustics fx5 5.25" speakers. i could get all these things for around 300 bucks.

I would have to say that with $300 your not going to get the SQ that you're looking for, especially if you're looking for subs, amp, and speakers.

If you want SQ get two 12s or one 12 instead of one 15.

The SoundStream amp is are the Boston Acoustics.

Use the Kenwood amp for the Boston Acoustics. No, that will not overpower them as long as the gain is set properly and you use common sence.

Use the SoundStream amp for the 2 12s. If the 300 watts isn't enough power for the 2 12s, then just use one 12. That would be better than one 15 for SQ.

What about a head unit?

All that for 300 dollars...

you should save more money so you have more options, and can get higher quality equipment.
