A battery isn't really need unless you go amp crazy. but a RED top to replace the cars battery might not be a bad idea down the road.

You have a good budget there, is that all for bass and amps and stuff, or does that include front speakers too?
Please, I need a hook-up too!!!

for sure........one of my buddies has been making some pretty sweet boxes lately. He made one for his snocross tailer that looks like a coffee table, has an plexiglass x cut out of it, and some red leds in side. he also made another one for a 15 that has a angled/ recessed amp rack built in with plexi to see the magnet of the sub. Plus that ones in a grand marquis with a huge recessed trunk so it sits flush!

I decided Im going to ty out MTX'* components out. Ive always had luck with their amps & subs. Its going to cost me about 1100 dollars for the amps, components, & subs. I should be right around 1500RMS somewhere in that area. This is what Im getting for that price.

T1501D - 1500W X 1 @ 2 Ohms. Class D Mono amp
T564 - 140 X 4 @ 2 Ohms 4 channel Stereo
T9512-04 12" Sub Dual 4 Ohm 1,000W RMS
(2)T8.6 6 1/2" Component 60W RMS


Here is a pic of the 9500 & W7 sitting on their bottoms. The MTX is on the left & W7 on the right.

I personally wouldn't. That MTX sub looks like pure SPL with no SQ to me...

But the almighty w7 has years of experience behind it, a name to uphold, and quite possibly the best SQ....

Who am I to argue with the man? Can't complain about my w7'*

That is one massive sub, but I agree with the rest that it'* a SPL sub, will pound like a **** but when listening to non-bass music, might not sound too nice. I don't really have any MTX knowledge but I've heard as long as you buy above the bottom line your getting a pretty good product. MTX is allways putting up high SPL #'* at the comps but you don't see them in any SQ comps.

Something caught my eye in your list there,

What'* the rating at 4 ohms, 70x4 i bet. just making sure that'* corect since you wont find an 2 ohm interior speakers. What'* your front speakers btw?
