Jma20a Go with the kappa components if you plan on adding a sub. The kappas dont have the greatest low frequency response, i let my sub handle the lows and the kappas for the mids,

Alright I guess I'll go for the sound bar.

I'm going to stick with kicker. I don't want to pay less and then regret it later. Can't wait till I finish my quick discos to start on the subs

That will give you a little bump in the rig without making the neighbours notice. Really, what I would do is find the sub you want (make/model) and then look for an amp to pair it up correctly. If you know you want a Kicker, make sure you are not over amping or under amping. The biggest killer of any speaker is clipping, so if it's not a good match it will kill the sub quicker than you think.
Okay I folded. I decided on what I want. It will for sure be thumping down the street...

Kicker 12" 2ohm 400 rms 800 max
JVC mono amp that is 400 watt rms 800 max @ 2 OHM bridged.

That's not overkill is it?

Haha my jeeps not gonna be set up that well fellas. It's for offroading. Not bumpin down the street. I just want a kicker 12 and a decent amp to push it. What amp brands, Watt min, and ohms would you guys recommend?
03-02-2013 12:27 AM
spr0k3t Save your money. Either that or purchase it for a decoy set. If you are looking to do things right, don't start off by looking at crap gear.

Sub Guys Help!

I threw together my last sub/amp combo... that got stolen. Looking to replace it all but do it right this time. saw a Formula mach 5175 2 channel amp on craigslist for 40$ Audio Savings | Formula MACH5175 1000 Watt Peak 350 Watt RMS 2 Channel Car Audio Amplifier Amp

If I were to buy that, make my own box, and run it with 1 12" what sub would be a good choice? I want a sub that very affordable.
