So, I'm about to order some stuff and I would like your opinions.
Here's the list!
Alpine type-r 12" sub
Alpine mrp-m500 amp
Atrend e12s sealed box
And a kicker 8 gauge wiring kit.
Does it look good? Any recommendations?

With all that high-end bass equipment, you might want to invest in some better tweets. Just a suggestion, though.

Then sounds great to me. Alpine and Rockford Fosgate are fantastic brands.

And that price is pretty nice.
