I don't remember. I got this setup 5 1/2 years ago. The amp, sub, box, door speakers, and labor was 1K.

I'd estimate about $200-250 at that time.

It was a lot of money, but at the time I didn't know how to do anything myself. I know better now

All the stuff I got was brand new at the time, so they were more expensive.

It wasn't fun getting the bill

I looked at the sub on dc sound lab but they show no prices, i havent heard of either brand before, is that a good thing? Will a 480 watt amp be much better then the 300 i have now?

RMS power @ 4 Ohms: 80W x 4
RMS power @ 2 Ohms: 160W x 4
RMS power @ 4 Ohms bridged: 320W x 2

What does this mean? How does it run on 2 ohm or 4? Thanks for all your help and the quick responses, im a noob when it comes to subs and amps.
