advice for car audio noobie

Recommended Posts

Hi im new to car audio and would like some advice on putting together a system. I would like to have 2 500w rms sundown audio e 12's. I am not sure what amp to get for them and would like suggestions on one that will power them to there full potential. I was thinking about buying http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_65557_Ground-Shaker-GSP-2-12-BLACK.html for the box. Any suggestions?

I would suggest you build a box. If you have the tools it's only 50ish in materials. And any good 1-1.2k amp would be fine

You can build a box that will be 100000000x better then the one you linked for the same amount.

As for a amp and not knowing how much you can afford use a soundqubed 1200, Rockford fosgate prime 1200. Also look at C2 audio they may be a choice to.

If you need help with a box design post your max LxWxH in the subwoofer/enclosure section and give it a couple days. Some one should be able to help there

Both of those amps look great. Is the soundqubed worth the extra cash? I am going to measure my trunk and post the specs to see what kind of box designs I get. I dont have the tools to cut the mdf but I know lowes can make the cuts in store

Don't let lowes ir any large chain store make ur cuts for you. Guaranteed to be off. They get paid by the corporate hour and their free "service" is designed to make cuts quick, not accurately. Personal experience with multiple stores.

when i went to home depot i had them make my big cuts. they did a awesome Job! talked to a kid about my age. we were joking and stuff And he actually pointed out a mistake i made in my dimensions. some old guy who hates our kind will most likely be no help. but i don't have a bad thing to say. plus running a full sheet of mdf by your self on a table saw sucks! just unsafe!

I'm sure you Can find a circular saw on your local craigslist for $20 it just needs to have a Sharp blade, and something to cut the wood with. if you have your local shop make the big cuts for you and pick up a cheap circular saw you Can do the rest your self. sheet of mdf $35,nails $6, glue $5, silicone $2, circular saw $20 doing the work your self instead of having a crappy prefab... priceless!
