For my first system I'm thinking about purchasing the following:
1 Dual 2ohm Fi SSD 15" - $209 shipped
1 Kicker zx750.1 Amp - $177.77 + $29.99 shipping
Material for building the box Logan designed. $?
A 4 gauge Amp kit - $??

How doe you like that setup? What besides that would I need to get? I want to buy everything needed and then bring it somewhere to get it professionally installed.

It says that the amp isn't 1ohm stable. Would I be able to use it at 1ohm?

I was suprised at FI's $$$ for their 18" Gives me ideas. You know that Kicker amp is refurbished, well of course you do. Not bad for the $$ overall. Good luck man.

So get the dual 1ohm, wire it to 2ohm, and then if I ever upgraded amps I could wire it to 1ohm?

Oh, now I get it. So if i got the dual 2ohm, I wouldn't be able to wire it to 2ohm? So I'd have to use the amp at 4ohm. I think I see now.

ctmike, is this amp kit the best one for me?
Complete 4 Gauge Amplifier Installation Kit
Item #: KOL-AK4
Category: Amp Installation Kits
Weight: 7.2 lbs
Price: $42.99

So then I can just bring the Sub, Amp, Box, and amp kit to a place and have it installed?

The system components ring up to be around $450-$475 + however much it costs to install. Is anyone here familiar with installation or had it done professionally and know what the prices are like? I have the money for the system, but installation is pushing my budget.

do the install yourself. Installing is fairly easy, and you can save $$ that way. My first install I did on my own, with no help, because I had just paid for a HU install 3 months earlier and didn't want to have to spend more. The people on here will be more than happy to help you with any information you need on how to do it yourself.
