Hey,

Just got a 2006 Acura RSX Type S.
Its got a decent sound system for a stock system. I'm not going to worry about speakers right away, because they are decently loud. It does have a tiny sub (in the middle of the spare tire) but of course it doesn't give much bang.

I'm wondering what type of setups there are, I have no idea on brands/sizes/prices and all that.
I was thinking two 10" subs, or 12" subs.

I listen to mostly rap/hiphop. Don't want to spend too much, hoping $600-700 for the setup.
Any possibilities? I would like good quality, not all crappy when you turn it on.

Thanks,
Carter

Hey there. If you like rap then go with 12's as you will get more lows. Are you buying online or at a shop?

If you want to get online, which I recommend ( cheaper than retail ) I would suggest either

Car Audio Stereo - Car Subwoofers - Car Amplifiers and Speakers
or
Audio Savings | Welcome to AudioSavings.com

Both ship to canada. You just have to pay brokerage fee which is only like 50 bucks for 12's ( goes by weight )

Just have a look at the subs offered to get an idea of whats out there. Just beware of over inflated ratings. eg. Stay away from power acoustik, boss, and cheap *** brands like that. Try to find eg. RE audio, Hifonics, Soundstream, Kicker, Alpine, etc. Basically if it has a high rms rating compared to others for a lesser cost then steer clear. You get what you pay for.

Audio Savings has FAST shipping. I have ordered stuff from them in the past and gotten it the next day, sometimes 2 days later. Only drawback is they ship with DHL....i dont like DHL much cause they have screwed up my shipping so many times. I have a hard address to find i guess.....even though UPS has never had an issue with it.

I would recommend keeping an open mind about the vendors on this site. I bought from MR2NR and had a very good experience. Just check out his feedback, you'll see that there are no negatives.

Actually im gonna go with MR2NR on this one. These guys give good support. Support you wont get from places like Audio Savings. Not to mention you're gonna get better quality stuff in most cases.
