Well, Currently I have a Sony Xplod SDX-S2000 52x4 Detachable cd deck, Four 5.25 (5 1/4) Rockford fosgate Power speakers. I was thinking after I buy the amp kit, to buy a Kenwood 2-Chan 800 Watt amp, and two 12" Rockford Fosgate punch subwoofers, any ideas on the amp/subwoofers?

For subs:Either Eclipse or Cerwin Vegas. Both are top notch imo.
For amp: Phoenix Gold or Kicker.

ninja edit: Pioneer Premiers are nice too.

Yeah, but i'm not going to pay 200 bucks for a subwoofer, I was thinking something along the lines of 120-160 at the most for 1 subwoofer.
And the amp, I'm not going over 250+ dollars.

My Aiwa has more wattage in one speaker than is in your entire system

Do you even know what you're talking about? Both those brands are utter garbage for car audio. Sony speakers can't handle anything, they blow out way too easy. I aslo doubt they'd "blow anything out the water", as you said.

My entire system, save for the head unit, is Phoenix Gold. I have two 12" Xeons (500W rms) running off a Titanium amp (1250W at 4 ohm.) :thumbsup:

Btw, I was just messing with you before. :cool:

Thats for damn sure, my friend went through like 2 pairs of sony explod 12" subwoofers in 4months. Their weak as fuck.

If you want some serious bass and some serious power, go with the RF Stage3 punch subwoofer $649 a pair for 2 subs. :thumbsup:

Anyhow, I already got my sony deck, new rf power 5.25 and 6.5 speakers, now I was thinking either a Kenwood 800/1000 watt amp, or a Rockford Fosgate 1200 watt amp. Hmm.. Choices. :thumbsup:

Then what do you suggest? I heard sony amps suck, kenwood are decent, rockford are pretty good. MTX amps we don't have around here and shit.

Exactly! They're accurately named though, they really do explode.

You're not in the know about Phoenix Gold are you? ;)

Fosgate amps aren't really that great, unless you're spending the money for a 8000 series, or better. A friend of mine just put a Power T15002 in his truck. I still like my amp better, but that thing puts out some serious power.

Read what you said, but anyhow, I've never heard of those kind of amps, and I don't think theres any store around here that carries those kind.

You're never heard anyone say "in the know?"

Phoenix Gold will beat out pretty much anything out there; their products win competition after competition. They cost a bit more, but they're definately the best. Eclipse subs are pretty good as well.

Phoenix Gold amp and some JL Audio subs (get the factory enclosures if you can afford it). Lots of $$$ but good quality sound
