    You're going to be very hard pressed to buy a good, reliable system for 200$ Decent wiring kits with adequate sized wires, fuses, terminals cost upwards of 50$ My last slot-ported box I built for a single JL12W6 cost 35$ in materials.

    Good luck though bud. :)

    $200 is really hard to work with. For wiring, go to www.knukonceptz.com they make great wiring kits and are cheap. The system I'm going to be getting my sister this summer is an Alpine 12" Type S sub and MRD-M300 amp. Should come out to be close to $300 after shipping etc. Should sound nice and get loud enough for her. So if you can come up with about another $100, that is what I would recommend. BTW: search the internet for the best deals. www.ikesound.com www.woofersetc.com www.thezeb.com www.onlinecarstereo.com
