Hey everyone, just wanted some advice from you guys on what type of set up I should go with for my new stereo I plan on getting installed before summer hits. My last set up was two 12 Alpine Type S subs, with custom box, 1 Digital PDX Alpine amp, and Alpine head unit. It was a great set up, which unfortunatley got stollen out of my Chevy Z-R2 S-10 Pick up. But, the amp was bolted into the frame in the rear of the truck, so the theaves didnt' have a chance at removing that unless they had a drill. So, that said I plan on reusing my amp, but am wanting to upgrade my sub/box set up.
The two 12's I previously had were a nice set up for the truck, but I have now changed vehicles to a 2008 VW Jetta 2.5. I have never owned a car, and have already messed up my body kit on the bottom due to over-parking a space (sweet). Anyway, I can't STAND when I pull up to other 4-door cars with a stereo system, and all I hear is the RADDLE coming from the over-powered system they have in their trunk, and that is NOT what I am going for. I am really thinking of setting up two 8" subs, or maybe just one 10" sub for the trunk, but again don't want it to be to much power. So what I am getting at is, for you guys with systems set up in your trunk/car, what have you found to sound the best? I am looking to spend anywhere from $200-$300 for subs alone, I'll probably build my own box, but again could use some help on what the best set up for the trunk/sound would be.
