I just had a few questions i am starting a new system for my 2001 Monte carlo, who has the best subs without having to spend 1000 a piece, i was really likeing the solar barics, and the memphis subs but now im curious about the RE subs i was wanting 3 12's but if 2 or maybe even 4 is better i would go with that. also i heard sum trash talking about the audiobahn subs, but what about there amps ?

There really isnt a "best sub". I'd personally stay away from all of audiobahns stuff. I see you have ben reading up on the fourm before you posted ;)

yeh i noticed that too, thought that was pretty cool...

what are you looking for, a very loud system (regardless if it sounds good or not), or a very good sound quality system(regardless if its not that loud), or somewhere in between>?

how much are you will to spend ALL TOGETHER on subwoofers?

do you plan on changing your door speakers?

did you change your cdplayer, if so, which one did you get, if not, will you?

how much are you will to spend on an amp?


what do you have already??

250 per sub isn't gonna get you an 18 from RE...you could get an sx12 for 250 plus freight though ;)

that would sound pretty nice...

aint nothing wrong with bangin frequencies between 30 and 80 hertz :puffin:


i wish the people in my area wanted shit like this, i would LOVE to do an install for a system of HIGH quality(make that trunk REALL clean with a wall for subs and all)... they all want prefab boxes, and they all want decent quality at the lowest price...they look at you like, "you can build boxes for subs?, why would you do that when they have some already made??"... and i just look at them and say, "Bitch, just pay me and forget i brought it up"...

yeh, i tried to get my homeboy Ced. to let me design a wall for his trunk, for two 10" 05 kicker comps( i tried to get him to go with twin 15" Comvrs)... he wasnt feeling it, he didnt wanna pay for the wood, glue, silicon, etc...

but i was gonna port the box... it was gonna be a 2 chambered box, with the subs in the center and ports on the outer sides... i then was gonna add some more wood to the rectangular box so that it slanted upwards just a bit, then i was gonna use a template of his trunk (card board) to trace out his trunk design, so i can build a wall (hiding the amp as well)...

the shit i had in mind was REALL nice, he woulda got alot of props when he popped his trunk(the subs would have hit mich harder too, even though they hit pretty good now)...

i had drew the shit out an all (rough sketches and measurements), but of course, we all dont wanna spend money on silly things like car audio right :biggrin: ...

That sounds like up here in Fort Hood. All those army guys get thier signing bonus and want some bump for their POS...then dont want to pay for anything to be done right, and then wonder why everyone laughs at their Audiobahn 1251's, boss amps and prefab boxes. Now dont get me wrong, some prefabs are nice (subzone comes to mind) but most are hack flea market jobbies. They want to spend $350 and expect to get $5000 worth of performance out of it. They'd rather buy 26" rims and run pymarid amps....its retarded.

I meant Fort Knox,....sorry, I used to live near Fort Hood too, but its really the same deal at any base...tons of retards with money and no idea what to do with it. Yeah, you can make a ton of cash off of them..but I personally feel bad taking their money. I dont know how many enlisted folks ive helped for free just because I felt bad for em.

I dont like soliders for the most part so I dont feel bad making cash off of them... I get them shit for less than the local shops do but I still make a nice profit on the sales and a killing on the installs. I do great work for them, but Ill be damned if Id do shit for free :mad:
