    I have been out of the game for quite some time but I am thinking of getting a system again. Nothing too crazy thought. I have a 2007 chevy silverado extended cab. I was looking at this custom box. [​IMG]

    I already have a pioneer deck. I am thinking of getting rockford fosgate 10" subs but need help choosing them and sizing the amp.

    so your basically buying something you dont need, not to be a jerk, but thats a little consumerist. Enjoy the things you have around you, even if theyre old and not considered "ballin" by some or "posh" by others.

    Not sure if serious. No I dont "need" to have a loud system. This is purely a want.

    I hate all the car audio people out there, it's like they're trying to compensate for having a small penis. Look how bad ass I am. I'm sorry but when I'm driving down the street I don't want to hear your music. When you're driving your car the radio is mere inches from you the factory speakers in your car are more then sufficient.

    You can have a system to enhance the quality of sound produced inside the cab without it even being noticeable to other drivers

    What kind of budget are you working with? A fantastic buy that will blow the doors off Rockford's is the SSA Dcon. They're only around $100 each and don't need too much power to run them. My other advice would be to never spend more money on your subs than you can spend on an amp. If you're looking to have any simblance of quality sound getting to your ears you need to spend at least the same amount for an amp.

    Here's a little clip of what the Dcon's can do.

    For someone looking for expert opinions, there sure are a lot of uneducated posters in here...

    What is your budget TS, and what subs specifically? What is the airspace of that enclosure?

    Don't throw all of us in that lot. The subs I recommended don't break the bank, have a relatively shallow mounting depth, and work well in a small sealed enclosure.

    hey spark, if you want something nice. I suggest you hit up one of them custom audio shops.

    you might pay a bit more, but you will also not have to worry about rattling and other stuff, plus if you want an audio system in your truck, it's always better to get it custom made. A custom audio shop will usually include the dynamat installation when you buy and get a system installed.

    you shouldn't need anything crazy anyway, a couple of 10 inch subs should do the job.
