How good is the system I'm looking at?

They got a sale at a store near here. It's 2 10" MTX Thunder4000 8-Ohm Subwoofers and 10" Dual-Sealed Speaker Enclosure.
[list]200-Watts RMS/400-Watts Peak
Folded Window Steel Frame
27oz. Strontium-Ferrrite Magnet
Dark Grey Aviation Carpet
High Density Carpet[/list:u]

MTX 2-Channel Power Amplifier
Thunder 4122

They didn't give any wattage. The subs and box are all for $99 bucks and the amp is for $149. I know nothing about systems. Seems like a good deal. I know it won't be like this one guys Trans Am with 3 15" Kicker CompVRs, but still. I just wanna be heard.

You wont be heard much with that set up

MTX is not that great of a sub/amp maker imo. Those subs are weak.

How much you looking at spending? Because I think you will be disappointed with that set up

I'm not sure what I'm looking for. The stock sound systems sound good, [I know, only four 6x8s.] but I want a little more thump. I don't want to be outrageous. I just want it to sound good inside and to be heard real close to the car outside.

I'm also looking for a real clean setup like Evals.

I'm kinda selling the system out of my car. It's a pioneer deh-p6400 cd player, 2 pioneer VCCS dual voice coil 12's, and a Legacy 1200 watt 4 channel amp. Sounds good and I always get good comments on the looks of it. Check out my cardomain site to see pics of it. I'm not sure on a price yet and the speakers have to be sold with the amp. But anyways, just getting a little publicity on it.

Ha yeh, it's pretty nice. I'm not sure if I want to sell it or not, I really want the premier version of it so I can control the sub without turning off my rear speakers.
