It's Rockford Fosgates entry models, but I had the ealier version and was amazed. And that package is everything you need.

i am not a big fan of RF, at least not their base model stuff, surf around

i got my system for less than that at etronics.com, and i have a 980watt amp, with a diamond and a sony, you laugh at my budget system, but it rocks my single cab at between 130-140dB.

I just had an allergic reaction from bull*hit....wow if you believe that hits 140db you need to be put in a car and listen to 140db...Me and quest are both mecp certified installs and have done alot of installs way more than anyone on this forums and believe us when we say the new rf are garbage....You want real RF you want their old triangle amps or the black ones not this new shiny crap...

Back to topic dont do it wait for the alpine type e package to come it should be ain a few weeks.

x2...i'm not a mcep (or whatever it is...no dissing intended) installer, but I know my sh.it for sure. 140 db is not easy to hit (espeically if you don't know what your doing)

75% install...thats all there is to it

Mark potts makes type s's hit over a 50 (pair of 12's) on 2.5kw

Get type r's at the least, I made 1 10 do 139.4 the 1st run and 139.7 the second run (on tones) MECA style. On about 989 watts....

hey guys i finally ordered an amp. i got me the ED nine.1, should be doing 900rms+/[email protected] but since i got this new install job its a pain getting time to do my own stuff. i have all my sound deadener, new 2channel for the front, sub amp soon and 4-10's just sitting there staring at me. then i have to go work and build 10 ported boxes for our soundroom and a complete dispaly room. our product line is okay. we have soundstrem, MA audio, JVC, Power acoustik, and last but not least.......DD. awesome stuff. i will post pics of our van real soon. it posted a score of 163dB? iirc

you have 2 different subs with two different boxes and they are prefab boxes. how do you hit 140dB i nstall up to $15k systems for customers so dont get me started. i only have 500 in my system, but then again i have box building experience and an SPL meter and an O-scope.

HERE IS YOUR CUSTOM BOX?>>>>> http://i83.photobucket.com/albums/j3...51210/crap.jpg

I am not MECP nor do I know alot about systems but I do know that 140DB is more than what was mentioned above. There is a guy here that does DB drags running 12 10's and only hits 146DB consitently. If I can find the specs and his truck I will post it.
