I was thinking of a box like these, but I don't know much about audio systems, so I wouldn't know what amp etc I need...or what the best brands and sizes are..

Thanks for the help guys!

Also I was going to get my sub box fiberglassed high performance white, with a pony on it, would the fiberglass be okay on the box?

doing custom fiberglass work like the one on the left could cost allot.

If you have not already I suggest going to a reputable car audio shop demo some equipment and talk budget numbers......NOT Best Buy


13 GT base, 3.55, Sterling Grey, MGW shifter, BMR LCA's, GT500 AB, silver RTR's, 275/40/19 Michelin pilot super sports, more stereo equipment than I will admit to, more parts to come.

Yeah definitely not best buy...I'll probably buy the zenclousures box, and get a couple kicker 12s, what amp do I need for 2 12s?
I know that a set up like I want won't cost more than 3k for sure...

There is a huge range of 12's available From Kicker anything from 200 to 2000 could be appropriate depending on which speakers you choose. I am running 1100 watts to a single Image Dynamics IDmax 12 now, but it is rated to 1000 RMS and 1800 max. That much power would fry a lower end speaker.

Just for general reference I like the alpine PDX and MRX line of amps they perform well, do more than rated power are fairly clean power, and are relatively inexpensive. Without getting too specific some other brands of amps I would recommend are in no particular order: Arc audio, JL audio, Zapco, Zed, and Zuki , the last two are a bit obscure but very very good amps.

In my current system I am running 1 alpine and 2 Arc's, I am considering replacing the arc's with either a Zed or Zuki the next time I refresh the system.

Thanks for the knowledge! Is there a website or something I can go to so I can learn the things I need to know about car audio?
Lol I am very clueless about the watts and amps and definitely don't want to blow or fry a speaker...and I don't want to sound like an idiot when I go to the car audio shop.
I am slightly mechanically inclined, but I am a computer programmer/hardware specialist...so this is all new to me with car audio..
Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions as they are probably very "noob" questions.
