im kinda poor... but i wanna get a sound system... i need an amp and a sub and i have about 200 bucks to play with... my head unit is kenwood and the other speakers are pioneer (they sound great) the system doesnt need to be great, i am just lookin for a little extra thump so that ppl outside of the car can hear it well.

any suggestions?

thanks

i bought two rockford fosgate 12's in a box for 200 dollars used. then i got a cheap 500w amp from a friend for free.. bought a 30 dollar wireing kit... and my 300zx pounded way hard.. honestly it hit too hard so i sold it all.. used the money to buy my apexi s-afc.. anyway~ look around, i found this deal pretty easy and it turned out to be an awesome system.

good luck

if you can wait, and save, get something good.. kicker, rockford fosgate, jl audio, memphis audio.. i have always ran kicker and rockford, jl audio is probably what i would consider top notch. if you just want some low end, go to walmart, if ya want good quality bumps... get the good stuff

You do not want to waste money on crap like xplod or any other cheap and nasty gear similiar, seriously. You'd be better off trying to find something second hand that's semi decent as suggested above, but utimately the idea is to save up more cash and buy something kickass later; rather than something crappy now. That $200 could be a deposit on something nice; I personally like clarion/kenwood/JL and wouldn't touch xplod gear with a 10 foot pole lol

its not that i dont have enough money now... its that i am going to college in the not so distant future (4 months) and i want something that will sound decent. it doesnt have to be top dollar and i dont plan on upgrading it until im outta college or until i know i have the finances to do it.

get a nice single 10" or 12" and a decent quality amp. If you can't wire it yourself, find a friend to do it for free, it'll save you lots 'o money.

The sony xplods will be fine for what you want. Go to WalMart and pick one up and a sony amp. Thats what I use in my tt and it rocks. I built a custom box for mine though. The boxes as walmart suck.

I am running two 10" Kicker subs with a 1000 watt Xplode amp. For what I payed, not bad... Kind of disappointed though... Does not sound NEARLY like 1000 watts should.

i wouldnt always believe what manufacturers tell you when they are selling a 1000 watt amp for as cheap as they do... go see what a kicker 1000 watt amp cost, or a fosgate amp, then compare to the 1000 watt cheapo amp cost.its very easy to find people advertising cheap subs that hold like 1200 watts... yet my fosgate 400w subs blew them out of the water. i would suggest buying name brand stuff second hand... when i bought my fosgates, my friend had them in a chevy truck along with two solobaric kickers.. his truck pounded so hard it literally hurt my body to sit in it. I figured if he couldnt blow them neither could i, and they slammed very nicely in my shiro.. although i must say, as a young person, i bought them becuase people think they are cool.. i ended up getting tired of the headache and sold them. i dont know how much money you have, or what you want in a system.. but if you want good tunes, no matter what type, and you want people to like it.. get named brand stuff how ever you can.. legally.. of course~ lol order a crutchfield catalog from there site, they are free and have an insane amount of audio gear for home/cars. They generally carry good/great stuff.. use this catalog to deside what you want, and go find it used. It is also very easy to wire a system in, anyone can do it.. if you cant like someone else said, find a friend that can. there is no point in paying what it cost to have one wired when it is so easy to do.. i wire all my stuff and have since my first audio set-up.. the worst thing i have ever done was hook rca cables up backwards, and the subs were distorted. i swap them around, and with no harm done they pounded like they should. good luck
