Please be mature. Humility is key.
How to get help in here:
1 Don't be a dick- life lesson.
2 Tell us what you're looking for, what features you want on it, and WHAT YOUR BUDGET IS
3 Google is your friend. Take what you just told us and do a bit of searching for yourself. It's genuinely not that hard.
4 Don't be a dick
5 In general, we're going to want to know what you're installing it in, and where
6 don't be a dick
7 shoot the **** with us, we're pretty okay when you get to know us
8 don't take everything we say seriously. We tend to ignore rules 1,4, and 6.
GENERAL INFO JUNK:
Before posting here. Search on www.google.com
Vids and Pics are welcome
<read everything, and memorize it. This will help you a lot.
Why you don't need a capacitor.
How to install your amp by yourself
If you are looking for subs, but dont know how they sound. Check out the video section on
Good place to research Amplifiers...

Great places to get good products at low prices.
<spare parts, off the wall or more exotic brands
<wiring. Just go here, don't even bother asking us.
<only if you like warranties or for research. They're the top online car audio site, but that comes at a co$t.
Terms to know:
RMS: The "real" amount of power your subs are getting, or, the amount that your subs need to run at optimal performance, so to speak. When an amp says 2000 watts MAX, it doesn't run at that. You need to look at RMS power.
Ohms: Basic unit of resistance. 1ohm=1volt/1amp.
Wiring: When people say to "wire subs down to X amount of ohms", it means to use your resistors (voice coils) to change resistance. Amplifiers run at different power (watts) at different resistances (ohms). When resistance goes up, power goes down. This is illustrated by the equation P=V^2/R.
Forms of wiring: Series and Parallel.
Series: Having two or more resistors, take the positive from one, and a negative from the other, wire them together, then wire the remaining positive and negative to the corresponding terminals. Equation=R1+R2+R3... etc. When two resistors of equal resistance are wired in series, resistance doubles.
Parallel: Having two or more resistors, take both/all positives and wire them all together to the positive terminal. Same thing with negatives. Equation= 1/((1/r1)+(1/r2)...). When two resistors of equal resistance are wired in paralllel, resistance halves.
Voice coils: The positive and negative terminals on your subs. Dual voice coil= two pairs of positive and negative terminals.
There is MUCH more to be said, but I'm tired, and don't feel like linking...
The part where OP makes fun of everyone else under the guise of what used to be pictures of our systems.
What The Heck?:
One picture per user please. If you want yours up Post up a pic that's no bigger than 800 pixels on the longest side, and we will promptly ignore it.
