Putting in Subs

Any recommendations for a good deck and a good amp?

I'm not familiar with MTX. What rms are the subs pushing and at which ohm? I really love my head unit. I have the Pioneer AVH3300BT. Highly recommend it. As for Amps.. JL Audio makes durable powerful and mostly cost efficient amps. Also they're rated close to their actual RMS.


It all really depends on your budget with sound systems. You can drop $4k into a badass setup or drop $600 into a really good one. I would talk to your local sound shop. Mobile audio stores are usually really good about not ripping you off. I've been to several that have talked me out of high priced things for something that would suit my application better.

Might wanna do some research on the rms and check the ohms and rms of amps. To get an idea of what you'll need.

Yeah, look for an amp that will push the rms of both of them added up at 1 or 4 ohms. That's pretty much all I have to say... And yes. You can get super expensive... But my $350 setup gives me headaches at full volume...

Alpine SWR-1243 sub... 600rms, 1800max
Alpine MRX-M50 amp 500rms, actual power is around 580rms @2 ohms.
And a sealed box... It's ridiculous.

Sub-$200 but $125 off amazon
Amp-$300 but $175 new off eBay.
Box-about $30 custom made by me.

If there the 12s which it looks like they are, at 2ohms its 400 watts rms, just in case you haven't found out yet

And on a side note I have a koiiler XM-6666 amp which is rated at 420 watts and it works really great with 1000watt subs, which I bought on eBay now granted you don't usually have any type of warranty unless you buy them from a retailer

Hope I could help
