VE SS UTE Install Options?
Posted 09 July 2012 - 08:29 PM
I wouldn't have the slightest idea when it comes to car audio so any opinions would be greatly appreciated.
I already have a set of hertz HSK 165's , but am clueless on amp and sub options.
I would be looking at
-2 or 4 channel to power the fronts
- 12" SUB
- mono for the sub
looking to spend about $1000 for the two amps and a single 12" sub no idea on what brand or options to go with.
I listen to all genres of music but i do occasionaly like crank it with some pretty serious bass.
Thanks in advance

I was gonna put 2 reference r1 12" subs behind seats in custom boxes with only 1 really good set of focal krx3's up front just to try get up over the bass... And a Soundstream xxx 4000d to run both subs under seat and still have a 4 channel If I ended up getting another set of splits..
My opinion for you "MAYBE" in 12" subs.. Due to what you wana spend:
Alpine type R
Theses are just a fue generic subs you can look at just have to watch the depth in the sub itself cause you don't have a great amount of room.. Other then that you can blow it out with other high end brand the list goes on!!!!!
Make sure you check eBay as well I got a bargain on a kicker L7 for $150.. I was over the moon and smiles all round..
Compadable amps to run these subs I'm sure a dealer will help you with that, and those subs are compadable with anything 1000rms.. Check your local audio store and maybe post here what they have in stock in options and I'm sure anyone on here can help you as they have helped me heaps of times.
Your stereo is your stereo not anyone else's was a good quote I got from here just remember that.

Im pretty keen after looking at the L7 Sub ( 2 0r 4 OHM?)
Iv'e had a quick look at some reasonably priced amps.
Would these options suit the L7 and My HSK 165's ?
500 watts RMS x 1 at 4 ohms (900 watts x 1 at 2 ohms)
Kenwood KAC-7205 Car Amplifier
- CEA Rated: 170W X 2 (1.0% THD+N) (4Ohm/2Ch)
- 250 Watts x 2 (2 ohm)/500 Watts x 1 (4 Ohm Bridged)
Also would a capacitor be required for this setup?

1ohm for the amp to it should be fine if it producing 900 to it, and 4 ohm I hear is the way to go to put abit more power into it
2 x 250 is that 125 per channel? Or 250 per channel..... Cause you can get sometimes
E.g 4 x 800 = 4 x 200watts per channel..
I haven't run a capacitor yet if you have a good battery that doesn't lose a lot of voltage you should be good..
In saying all this I have to watch what I say cause in the end im still learning also.. But I'm guessing it won't be long now till the other blokes on here that no there crap back to front to also put the 2cents in and everything will be much easier
