Okay guys ..

So i'm 15 and i'm getting a car very soon. I plan on getting a Grand Prix, LHS, or a midsize Explorer.

This is what I plan to get for my first system when I get a car :

HU - Alpine CDA-9886

Front - Alpine Type-R 6.5"

Rear - Alpine Type-R 6x9

Subs - (Two) Rockford Fosgate T1 10" Dual 2ohm coils (ALREADY HAVE)

Wiring - Knukonceptz 1/0 Ga into a distruibution block into 4 ga

Amp (Subs) - Rockford Fosgate T1500-1bd

Amp (6x9s) - Rockford Fosgate 200.2 (ALREADY HAVE)

Custom box 3.0 ft^3 after displacements with slot port

Big 3 in Knu wiring

Possibly a drycell battery in the back if lights are dimming or having starting trouble (Kinetik HC800 or something)

How does this sound guys?

I'm only 15, and i spend alot of time on the internet, and i'm not looking to hit 150+ .. Just something to be heard and make some sh*t rattle .. Does this sound reasonable? Any changes or suggestions? I'm not looking to drop an assload of cash on this. I barely have enough to get the T1500 at this point. Give me your honest opinion, but this is what i have come up with, and plan on buying unless stated otherwise here. I dont think i'm missing anything .. So leave comments please!

One other thing - Would it be worth it to have my local audioshop install the amp/deck? I can handle the door speakers haha. But it's all pretty good equipment, and i'd hate to mess it up. Thanks.

Sounds like a very good first setup, but you're going to need better electrical. That 1500-1bd is very very power hungry.

Look like a decent setup...remember though, its all in the install. Equipment doesnt mean much. Take your time and do it right...trust me it pays in the end. Any questions and you have the best knowledge source at your fingertips here.

with your voice coils your ohm load will be 2 or .5.

i would recomend selling those and getting some Audiuque SDC2.5D4 10s

Instead of telling me to get new subs, how about trying to help me find a amp that will run my subs fine, as i already have my subs and plan to keep them

Just looked up at the power handling on the subs, its 150-600 watts rms, you COULD get an eD Nine.1 Amplifier which is rated at 900W @ 2ohms. I think that will run those subs just fine. only problem is that they are out of stock and they have to make more amps, if you're willing to wait a bit
