To expand on things,
I think I am pretty close to adding a Zapco I-force 450 4 Channel amp
and an Image Dynamics ID 12 D2 subwoofer
To the Christmas list for the wife.
Does anyone have any experience with either of these brands?
The shop I am thinking about buying from will also make a custom box that fits nicely in the trunk of my wife's car, taking up as little room as possible (and it will be carpeted to match).
He assures me that this sub/amp are capable of playing clean tight bass with great SQ even at lower volumes... but you can turn it up stupid loud if you want (probably not too often since I like my hearing!). the reviews I have read seem to support his comment. Also, a good friend of mine has known the owner of this shop since 1993 and I am pretty sure they wouldn't sell me something that wasn't top notch.
The sad thing is, by the time you add up the sub, amp, custom box, installation, cd deck, door speakers, rear speakers, ect. I could almost have an ep800
