How about this Amp/ sub combo?

Im playing with the idea of getting a better amp and subs. Right now i've got a lightning audio amp, a rockford p1 sub and a lightning audio sub....(used to have 2 p1's, but one got messed up, so I put the lightning audios in and one of them messed up, so now i've got one of each...lol). Anyways, what do ya'll think about this setup? Audiobahn
Amp:

Sub:
http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAu...roductID=13517

ALSO, I want to get a headunit so I dont have to use that HI output or whatever the crap it is. If I get an amp and subs, I dont want to spend over $150 on the H/U. The last one I had was an Blaupunkt, and I liked it.....it was like $120, had a bunch of EQ setting you could change, including freqencies for the subs, and all the other stuff. It had great radio reception too. Is there anything like that?

I used to know a bunch about car audio and stuff, but I've forgotten some of it over the past year.

neither one would be an upgrade and will probably lead to the issues you had with the other components.

well, I figured out that I messed the other subs up because I had the bass turned way up on the H/U....after I turned it all the way down, I haven't had a problem since.

Also, I get new subs of some kind, should I go with 10's or 12's? I've got 12's right now.

If I had subs with a 400 watt rms rating, and used it with my current amp that puts out 150 rms x2 @ 2ohms, would they hit as hard as a subs that had a 150 rms rating?

rule of thumb...always put atleast 75% of the RMS to the sub, but your question, it would be deeper but the amp would have to work really hard to get them to do right, get a bigger amp then the RMS of the speakers so the amp does not have to be turned all the way up, better to over power then under power
