Help!!!

I have two PPI 12" subs, some ppl say they are crap but i love them. I honestly dont even know what brand that is.
if anyone knows that would be great!!!

i have an MA audio amp that apparently sucks!!! Someone told me they seen it in a magazine for one of the best amps, i dunt know if that is bullshit or not but i thought my amp was good.
Now i think its shot. my subs stopped playing and ive had the wiring and deck checked out so im looking for a new amp.

i suck and dont know much about this kinda stuff. i am however very interested and i want to buy a good product. i dont however want to spend too much money.

so i guess the question is whats the best amp and best deck i can buy for fairly cheap????

1. to test the subs and see if they are not the ones that blew up take a 9 volt battery and hook it up to each of the voice coils of the sub to see if the voltage makes the cone of the sub move in or out.
2. the other thing you can check is the fuse in the + connection for your amp.
if the fuse is blown replace it.
3. also another thing to check is the voltage coming form the deck through the remote turn on wire whice tells the amp to turn on or not.
4. check your grounds.

... others will chime in with what i missed or did not cover...

um there are to meny places to list, but none of them are free.

i would say find someone on the site who is close to you, like within 20 mins and get them to check it all for like 20 bucks.

Hahahaaah, I'm sorry.

I just think it would be hilarious to hear a Future Shop employee tell me the reason my system doesn't work is because my subs are "too old"...

I hate when my subs get too old. It's a good thing Future Shop knows what they are talking about.

For $140, you could have gotten 2 12" Mach 5's, or almost 3 10"s... Take that back and get these.
