    r u gonna build your own box or what??? what kind of car will dictate where and how you mount your subs... also how big you can go, i assume you are not worried about trunk space??
    but you dont want to build some over blown bass monster, with no good sound.
    what head unit you got?? what front and rear speakers??
    you plannin on hi or lo level input?
    3-5 isnt alot for subs and an amp. i suggest getting 10's and a bigger amp than 12's cuz the 12's will need a bigger amp you cant afford.
    do you want to display the subs and amp? or just get some sound.
    i sugest gettin the subs first, then worry about fancy lights.
    build your system in your mind and then buy it in stages...

    I would go with the biggest subs you could fit.
    Here is a good place to buy your stuff. I just upgraded my new trucks system and everything I bought was half the cost it normally is.

    Hey alex,

    what kind of car are you putting this in.......
    I have some brand new Xtant equipment never installed
    Xtant is made by Mitek and is there TOP OF THE LINE equipment
    They also make MTX and Coustic

    Heres what I have all BRAND NEW

    3- Xtant X1244 12inch Dual 4ohm subs........26lbs. each
    1- Xtant X1001 1000 watt mono Amp Stable down to 1 OHM
    1- Xtant X604 600 watt 4 channel amp 2ohm stable

    I used to work at Sound Solutions of Hickory which is now out of business due to poor management.....I bought a bunch of stuff when I worked there to put in my WRX.....after gutting my car and putting 3 layers of Dynamat on the floor,roof,doors,etc. I realized it was going to way me down too much so I never installed anything


    Since you're local I figured I offer......also if you need any wiring help let me know

    - i have my brothers 96' volvo 850 but im going to be putting this stuff in a 99' volvo s70 cuz my brothers is going to be his when he gets outta college.
    - im probly going with 2 10's but the 12's arent quite out of the ? yet.
    - i will be buying a box not making one.
    -this will go in my trunk because i dont haul stuff around the only space i will need is for my soccer stuff which could go in the backseats if i need to
    - where else couold i put the subs in a sedan???? i kno under the seats in a SUV but could you do that with a sedan???
    - also i have stock speakerss....should i get new ones

    i think i pretty much answered everything...anything else u need to know?
