PLEASE ditch the sony subs. They are not worth your money or time.

Your walmart link doesn't work btw.

Agreed, spend a little extra now to get something nice. Go with a good sub company like TCsounds, JL, or Polk'* SR line.

yeah, the sony HU isn't bad, sony is a good brand when it comes to decks, but look into some better subs... I usually don't like buying my car audio electronics at the same place I buy my jeans .

Best place to find out what you need is somewhere that installs... act like a customer even if your not going to buy from them... Somewhere that is reliable... not your local underground car audio shop (They sometimes make you buy things you really don't need)... go to somewhere like Best Buy or Circuit City, and tell them what you want to do.

Good luck

JL is a good brand... rockford fosgate is too, but I find them a little overpriced... It really depends on what quality you want... do you want 1200 watts of loud bass with not so much quality.. or 1200 watts of quality loud bass? Also, what kind of amp are you using to power these babies?

working for circuit city... i would suggest not using the 210, if you want the sub output control and the ability to add a 4 chan amp later... look at a pioneer at least a dehp3900ib....

also the explod amp isnt gonna give you that great of quality, if your lookin for a good system look @ pickin up 2 CVR 10'* or 12s (buy one get one free right now) at ccity, and a kicker 400.1 (p/n kkr 06zx4001) or a 750.1 (kkr 06zx7501)... i PROMISE it will be louder..

Loud
Quality
Cheap
You can only have 2.

If you are trying to get all 3, then mainstream companies are not the way to go.
