Default I am tempted...

I really am trying to save money for college and for my next car(whatever that may be) so I have scrapped my idea for my system. I decided that it would be stupid to drop over a grand into my car for one 12" woofer. The other day while looking in the paper... I saw this:

I am seriously thinking about this... or the two 10" set just to get some bump going... I can't really tell if it is worth it or not though... should I?

I'm assuming you mean the amp? Do RF amps burn out often??

They'll be great! I saw that, and they look nice and it'* a good deal. For that category, that'* the best setup you can get, and a great value. You'll be happy for sure.

Spend the 20 bux for the 12" package IMO though.

Keep in mind you'll need to buy a wiring kit as well!

www.sounddomain.com will be your cheapest solution. Don't buy the stuff @ best buy, it generally costs more then the specialty car shops.

I think that I am going to get my wiring kit from www.thezeb.com I had a lot of good luck with them in the past as far as my 6x9'* and my HU.. Is the amp install kit the only thing I will need?

i have had several rockford fosgate product and have never had any trouble with them that seems to be a great deal from what i can tell. it is amazing how far tecnology has came. so far that you can get 2 12" subs a amp and a box for 300.00 and it is rockford fosgate to boot. it seems like everyhing is getting better and cheaper all the time.
