    nice setup. how much did it cost you for all of it? and did u build the box yourself or have someone do it for you?

    and what if i went with these http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_10285_JL+Audio+10W1v2-8.html#

    and bought a apline amp pushing 1000 watts. im more concerned on where to buy the box more than anything if you know what i mean.

    alright ill check that out. money really isnt that big of an issue but i dont want to be over priced. al and ed's on beach and warner quoted me almost 1.3k for 2jls,box,amp, and installation fucking dicks.

    autotoyz same setup for around 900

    but i could buy 2 of those subs for 160, buy a box for around 100 and get an alpine amp for about 400.

    what do u guys think i should do?

    Both of those prices you were quoted expensive.

    I'm going to go with Image Dynamics IDQ10v3 and get a single box. Look for a cheap/decent price amp on craigslist. After that I can find wires and get some friends to install. Probably would cost me no more than $600

    I'm sure you can find members on here that can help you out. I'm jealous that I don't live in Cali or AZ, it seems like A LOT of members on here are in those two states.:D

    If money isn't an issue go with JL 13TW5 and a JL 500/1. I have had this setup for about a month now and I love it. I may even consider adding another one if I have enough room for another one.

    3 subs? damn dude.

    i think 2 10's would be enough for me though. or 2 12's depending on what can fit.

    i might just go with the w1's

    Well I listen to country rock and rap. It all sounds really good on that sub. Like I said if you have the money get one and you will not be disapointed.
