you'll get the alternatives cheaper at http://www.mcs-direct.co.uk but i like what your planning! Just leave the 6x9's out of the equation cos they dont go well with a sub. Stick some Mid-Range speakers in the rear side panels and you should have a kickin system!

Are you planning on pumping 1200WRMS through a sub rated at 600WRMS?

see: http://www.rockfordfosgate.com/rftech/wiringwizard/index.asp?WoofQty=1+woofer&WoofImp=Dual+Voice+Coil +-+4+ohms+x+2&image.x=12&image.y=9

Probably best to get a 2ohm stable amp that will put out about 600 - 800 WRMS max to run the sub(cheaper too!). Its always better to run a sub with an amp that is a little bit more powerful, so that the amp is in control, but 1200WRMS through a 600WRMS sub would cook the voice coils as soon as you whacked it up!

Not taking the mick or anything but who are MA Audio? Wouldnt it be better to save for longer and be happy with the best that make do with what you can afford at the time? Have a look at www.Caraudiodirect.com for some quality car audio

P.S I agree about the 6x9's, leave them out. Use the money saved to get some quality components up front. Leave the rears out if you can, it will always sound beter.

P.P.S The cap is a waste of time. They are a fad. Totally useless.

I beg to differ. First of all, the 'maximum' watt rating isnt an accurate rating of a sub. You should always use RMS (root mean square)rating, this is an average power rating, meaning, you could run it with this much power all day long if you want. Secondly, an amp that is running a sub should always have an RMS rating slightly higher than the subs RMS rating to ensure that the sub is running at it's full efficency. Thats a fact. Try having a look on www.talkaudio.com for some real advice, all the top SQ and Sound Off guys go on there, they all run their subs at way, way over the RMS rating. I know they only use the subs for burps but the same principle applies in normal car audio.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Ditch the 6x9's and spend the money saved on some decent components for the front.

800watt 6x9's??? seriously, is that RMS or 'peak power'. If its, peak power, you need to divide the figure by 4 to get an accurate rating!!

That sub is more like it! 5000WRMS!!! lol! I would love to see that shake a cinq to bits! But for the money, there are a lot of better subs out there. Have a look at www.caraudiodirect.com if your planning on spending that amount of money look at the RE SE12 which is a lot cheaper and is the 'sub of the moment'!

Before you get a sub and amp, its an idea to look at that Rockford Fosgate site on the link above to see how best to wire it up, it can get very confusing when using duel voice coils.
