Highs, lows? How big? How good is your electrical system? What subs? Just enough to add some bump, get loud, or sound quality? What are your goals?

Sub amp - SoundQubed 1200 is always a good choice.

I myself am wanting to try a Ampere, or Twisted sounds they look decent and get a lot of great reviews. I think the ampere 1200 is $329.

Orion is ok but not what it used to be and I like CT sounds they make nice amps but I would run away from anything skar. Heard a lot of bad stuff on skar, and I usually take bad reviews as maybe right, maybe not, but when there hundreds or even thousands of bad stories of people getting burned I assume it's probably true.

on the ct sounds. T-1500 do you know if the amp has had any defects??? I know that the old ones like the 7k and the 1400 white ones were burning up and I guess there boards inside weren't stable and they were breaking with the vibration of the bass not sure if they made improvements on em over the years I really want one of those but I'm not sure due to the bad reviews in the past

Yes they had some trouble with those 7k's, but I haven't heard anything about the 1400.1. I just ordered a DC audio 2k and 2 lvl 4 12's myself. I had thought about evils, but I can't get a ho alt so can't go that big, and SE gave me a great deal so I couldn't pass it up. Basically the same price as soundqubed on sale, but DC instead. That and I didn't want to wait 3 or more months for subs. Oh well at least I will have my work car up and banging but I wish I could have ran the evils.

That's bad ass how much you pay for the subs? Do you know if the massive 4000 block amps are any good???

I got it all brand new with a two year warranty for $1200 shipped to my front door tax and all. I was gonna run a Evil, but couldn't supply enough amperage to feed it because my alt is already outputting all it ever could (130amp). Just got a new iPad mini today to use as a source unit. The subs are due to arrive the 1st day of march and the amp is gonna take 3 weeks. Now I got to get some birch and build a ported box and false floor for the batts and amp. I'm thinking about doing a trunk wall but I don't really want to seal off my trunk, as it's a late model, low mileage car. May just fire the sub, and port to the rear and mount the amp up front where it can get A/C, and put one XS power battery's on each side. Got to do big 3, and run some zero gauge. I am still gonna run a set of evil mids, and tweets up front off a DC 4 channel, but that will be this spring or summer.

I have also heard the massive where decent little amps probably get close to rated anyways. I started to buy one of the nano's to run my 13w7 but just ended up getting the HD1200/1.

Welcome to the forum.

Take a look at the SSA store : they have all kind of amps you need, from respectable brands. 

I'd rather get a good 1000 watts amp than a bad 1500-2000 w amp.

That's going to be pretty sick once it's done you should post a video on YouTube or something. The amps they sell at ssa like the shark 2500 do you think that's any good?

I didn't think SSA sold shark I have never seen them. I saw where they picked up audio legion those are some good cheap amps built in Korea. And yes I am going to post a video once I get them all done and cleaned up. I put one up of my dodge bouncing a quarter off the trunk and you tube muted the music because I forgot to say it wasn't my music lol. I didn't think you had to when just demoing a system. Next time I will though or just play a tone and show the flex.

      Question about the use of amps crossovers and sound processors. Is it best to go all active not at all or combine?? Are amp filters as good as sound processors? 
      When you buy a component speaker system you are paying for a crossover too. More expensive units have better crossovers. It’s been suggested that these crossovers use up power so not using them and using HPF and LPF on your amps is the better way to go. An alternative method is using a digital active crossover that can be programmed. 
      Different methods are also to influence phase shifts that can create cancellation  or have better frequency curves. 
      The cons would be a dedicated amp just for tweeters and one for mids and one for subs so instead of a 4 channel amp driving 4 pairs it would drive the mids on two channels and two channels for the tweeters then not using the expensive crossover that came with the speakers. 
      I’m running everything thru an Audio Control DQX with sub filter crossover point and EQ that is separating the signal at 90hz which I can adjust. Then thru a programmable crossovers The component and coax speakers are all actively crossed between subs and mids but I am using factory crossovers still. I’m assuming they are only helping tweeters but guessing they may have a filter for the mid too? 
      Do you think I am negating phase advantage by leaving factory filters in? Is the phase pollution not disruptive in high frequency so phasing mids and Subs is sufficient?
       I’m bi amping a pair of JBL competition speakers that has a jumper to remove in the crossover when doing this I am also using amp HPF and running other tweeters off all 4 channels. The JBL owner manual goes into great details about phase shifts and axis to explain what this crossover is doing to help  
      is there a better way to measure it sounds going to me but who knows?

      Good evening everybody. I have a few items to install for an Audio System upgrade; but don't know how to go about it. The Items that will be involved are -1 Distribution Block -2 Amps. -1 Capacitor. -1 Equalizer/Crossover -6 Speakers in Total (2 tweeters, 2 Front Door 6.5's, and 2 6x9's) -1 Subwoofer

      I'm trying to connect 2 amps; 1 for the Subwoofer and the Second for Speakers. My Aftermarket Head Unit has 3 pairs of RCA plug-ins.
      1) Subwoofer 2) Front 3) Rear.

      How Would I connect the 6 speakers (which I'm going to rewire) to the 1st amp? Do I wire the Speakers to the Amp or Straight to the Head unit itself? Also, how would I connect the amp to the Head unit if it only has the 3 RCA plug-ins as stated above?

      Any advice or suggestions are Welcomed. Thanks in advance.
