    I'm not even sure if this thread will be a success but i'm bored and figuring why not.

    Budget: 1500 smackaroos for equipment, then lets say up to 400 for installation gear (I know on a regular basis 400 is going to be more than someone needs but I wanted to leave room for some creativity)

    my system:
    Panasonic CQ-C8300U In Dash CD/MP3/WMA Player 225

    Audio Control Overdrive 110

    CDT Audio EF-61CF 6-1/2" Component System 340

    Hifonics ZX4000 2-Channel Amplifier (for components) 230

    Adire Audio Shiva 125

    Alpine MRV-F540 AMPlifier 300

    Delphi XM Add-on 150

    Total: 1480

    Installation:

    Enclosure 120

    Dynamat Xtreme Trunk Kit 84

    Dynamat Xtreme Door Kit: 36

    50 Sq. ft of dynamat 60

    100 for wiring

    Total: 400


    Does that sound any good?

    depends on how much of a bass head you are a shiva might not be enough i have a brahma 15 and it is almost not loud enough for me anymore , just remember you'll start getting used to it or in my case you'll star going deaf and want more, if you have the room get a tempest and put it in a big ported box its only a bit more

    I've heard very good things about the Acendant Audio woofers. XBL plus a really low price :cool:

    If you get one, be sure to report back on how you like it.

    Just put my order through with Chad 15 minutes ago for $159 shipped.. He said it should be here on Thursday since it's only a state away. :coold:

    Im a complete newbie and havent really heard any nice subwoofers before so I wouldnt know what to report.

    This is the plan for the enclosure it's going in. Chad said it would be alright and to use a low Q setting (gotta go find out what that means now :hs: ) and with 250W it should be pumping.
