    Any recommendations for the above would be welcome and any info on extra battery installations if required, and good conponent/tweeters so that the system isnt 99.9% bass with unhearable vocals :
    thanks in advance

    They are both 15" and budget is around £300 mark....Its on behalf of a friend, he,s about to purchase an w reg pug 206.
    He listens to hip hop/ rap music and is open to any recommendations regarding sealed/ ported boxes and any decent component speakers also.
    Cheers

    Its gonna be tricky with that budget if we are honest.... for that type of music (IMO) a large ported box would be best - he will need the thiele small parameters to work out the corredct box size, and be able to build one and tune it to a decent frequency.

    Would buying used be ok? Cos if so, we can make a fantastic system :)

    Or http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=4950&item=5709855389&rd=1

    First is better! That should take care of the subs.... and his teeth :D

    Amp for fronts:

    Obviously very difficult to guage what they will all sell for, but all top notch kit. He'll need to budget for cables (high current stuff!) and with that amount of power some serious dynamat sound deadening.

    Maybe a trailer too, as 2 x 15" ported enclosure subs in a boot of a 206 isn't going to leave much space for shopping in Sainsbury's!

    HA HA :laugh:

    Thanks a million for all your advice and hard work put in searching for links to all the goods!!!
    I'll see my mate tonight and i'll keep you posted on the installations/purchases as /when they take place.

    Just a last thing, will the single rockford amp power both the 15" subs?
    If so how do you wire them up as both speakers are 4-Ohm single V-coils.
    Would you bridge the output from the Amp, then daisy chain the subs or would you wire it un bridged to each sub as normal?
    Thanks again for everything!
    Danny

    Either of the Rockfords will power them... the top one will do it easily - one per channel - you could bridge and daisy chain, but 1100WRMS (Rockford watts being 30% higher than rated as usual) would be painful!

    The 4 channel amp, you would obviously bridge on each channel... i chose those for ease of install.

    A watt is exactly that - a unit of measurement. What makes this one different ?
