Amp and Subs recommendations...

I have decided to add an amp and subs to my MACH 460. Need advice from those who know best..... before I spend cash that could've been spent more wisely. Have $500 for this maybe $600

There are many ways to go. Alpine MRP-M350 and JL Audio's CS210RG-W1v2 enclosure would perform very well.

I'll let you know how Eric's recommendation works shortly. Assuming that is the model number for the sealed enclosure. Will be running the m350 with 2x 10W1v2 subs.

Infinity 1230W 12" subs..

I found a killer deal on Infinity 1230W 12"subs. Any of you guys ever use these..?? Haven't bought anything, just researching best deals. I just want to end up with a system that'll sound badass.... At least badass to me.. I don't ask for a whole lot. I've heard some nice systems like Kicker ComprVR 12 in a Kicker box with plenty power ... and oh my GOD. Too bad it doesn't fit in my trunk.

Are they Reference, Kappa, Perfects, or Kappa Perfects? My buddy had (4) 10" References on (2)1500w amps in his Cheby 1500. Rocked like a son of a bitch.

I don't like the reference line. but that could be because i have a perfect. I have a 10.1D for sell, all you would need is an amp. sounded plenty good in my mustang it just wont fit in the truck. check out the misc for sale forum if interested. dunno if the box will fit under the mach460 rack though.

Alpine M350 and 12" Punch II Rockford Fosgate Subs

Well guys, I went and bought a Alpine M350 $170 as per recommendations and a pair of Rockford Fosgate 12" Punch 2s in a sealed box new for $250. I haven't wired it up but hopefully I'll get it finished tomorrow. Exactly in the price range I wanted and hopefully the M350 will thump them well enough.

I'm done with the installation. This thing flat out thumps. Much more than I expected and very happy with it.

Now I need Dynamat. Where's the best price for this...???

Won't go under the M460 rear deck. Need 1" clearance. Gonna build another box soon. Wondering if I can remove that deck but leave the rear speakers and amps installed where they are.

What speakers can I replace my stock one with.??? Any I choose that fit...???

What's that got to do with this thread? The OP has already bought subs and an amp...and installed them for that matter.
