Your electrical system better be prepared to handle those U.S Amps 2000's. Those things love to suck major amounts of power. I would go with Treo SSX's. W7's are pretty nice subs', but the cost doesn't justify the performance. The L7 is a sub' that gets nice and loud, but the SQ isn't really great.

all this money and someone with a single brahma setup or a dual brahma setup will have to hand you your ass because they used a signle amp, single sub, single (quite large) box and you hit maybe 6 DB higher then them, and they spent about 1/4 as much as you did. Dreamin is fun, but you really dont get much more from 4 subs than 2.

It takes double the subs AND POWER to raise 4 DB.

So 2 12's hit around 150 ish, and 4 exact same 12's with exact same amplification (doubled) will hit a 153 ish. and that upgrade cost you twice the initial cost of the system.

In car audio, quanity isnt always better unless you have a all out SPL only system.

It might look good, but a well designed setup for 1/4 the cost will compete with what you have described.

Just something to think about, but your shit would look tight tho! Much respect if you want to spend the money.

I know how it goes :) I was part of the crew in BC here who ran for audiobahn in 2001, we had four of the AWC-1500Xi's in a dodge omni, 8 1800D's and 12 batteries and a ohio generator 450A alternator in the car.

We hit a 167 final. BUt man what a waste of money, but we were 75% sponsored money tho :) But it was fun, and if thats your daily look at some new suspension components, CAR AUDIO IS HEAVY ON THE POCKET BOOK AND THE CAR!! Good luck man

I DO NOT KNOW WHAT I WANT TO DO AT THE MOMENT I AM JUST THROUGHING THINGS AROUND IN MY HEAD
Just to let you know I have clowned some fools that think cuz they spend money on 4 subs, they got loud shit.

But like I said, more power to ya if u want to spend! I mean it looks great if done correctly.

But functionality wise, you can hit about the same for way less.

SEE MY MAIN POINT RIGHT KNOW IS THAT I HAVE THE CHOICE OF TAKEING THE BACK SEAT OUT AND MAKING A BOX TO TAKE UP THE EXT CAB AND I CAN DO SOME REAL TIGHT LOOKING FIBERGLASS OR JUST A REALLY NICE LOOKING SET UP OR I CAN CUT THROUGH THE BOTTOM PART OF MY CAB IN TO THE BED AND MAKE THE BOX IN THE BED AND THE SUBS FACEING IN AND KEEP MY BACK SEAT BUT FROM WHAT EVERY ONE I HAVE TALKED TO SAID I WOULD BE SORRY LATER IF I CUT THE TRUCK BECAUSE IF I GO TO SELL IT OR TAKE THE SYSTEM OUT I WILL HAVE A HOLE I WILL HALF TO WELD BACK UP WHAT DO YOU THINK ??

Definelty dont cut the truck. And its hard to fiberglass mods to fit into a truck. Trucks are just.........










A challenge :) But definetly a square box with a single 12" thats like 4 ^3 feet and some power going to that baby , ported of course and tune to about 35-37 hz and wow u have a spl monster. then move on to your mids and highs and your sq.

Its just cheaper, easier, and can look great

yeah i am wanting it to just look real nice when i open it up and i was wanting to do some fiberglasing work but from what i have seen it is something that i would hlaf to keep up on since this is still going to be my daily

i think vinal will be fine and look right

i already have what i am running for my mids and highs picked out

2 sets if alpine 176A comp sets
4x6 alpine 3 ways
6x9 alpine 4 ways

i am running these for 2 resons sound and price i can buy all of this for under 500 so i think it will sound grate and perform well at the same time i am going to be putting the same brand of amp i will have on my subs on these because i think it looks better to have matching componets in a system
