Where to get subs installed?

Well i am about to purchase a system that has 2 MTX thunder 8000 12inch subs, sony xplod 1600 amp, boxes, and 1.5 farad capacitor, plus all the wires to hook it up. What i was wondering is does anyone know someone locally that could install that into my 93 GT for a good price, and that also does good work? Thanks

Wasn't looking for anything great in a system, just a extra little bass to my car.

1. those subs are capable of ALOT of bass.
2. that amp is a piece of crap, it will likely blow, will put out very little useable power, and if you gain it up like everyone else does who runs those amps, you will kill it.
3. buy a smaller good amplifier, 4-500 wrms, JL 500/1, mtx 801d, memphis 500d, fosgate 5001, etc.


you WILL regret using that sony, FYI. I've seen them take too much good equipment with them while they were being used "for a little bit of bass".

Ok, than what is a sub that you recommend for that. I was hoping to build a nice cheap system, but still sound good. What kinda amp would work well with that setup?

depending on the impedance of the subs, single 4 or 8 ohm, or dual 4, any of the ones i listed would work well.

mtx, memphis, JL, orion, PPI, Phoenix Gold, Etc.


you should never have trouble finding RMS power on a good amplifier, and if they rate the Max power to be more than twice RMS power, consider the amplifier trash.

Autosound in bedford.


if you buy that amp, you are throwing away money, just be aware of that.

Went up to EW's store today and got my subs installed. I must say that is the only place i will go now to get anything audio for my car. Amazing customer service, and damn good prices.

nothing against onebadwagon cause i haven't done buisness with him.

But EW is the man about taking care of people. I'm sure onebadwagon is just as good but EW hooked me up and knew what he was doing.
