If that is your budget, and you aren't expecting too much out of it, that looks like a pretty good deal. Make sure to account for a wiring kit, as well as professional installation if necessary.

I really can't see you finding a subwoofer, amplifier and box for less than that.

It really depends what you are looking for. If you want an inexpensive way to get a little more bass to a stock system I would say go for it. If you plan on upgrading further (HU, speakers, etc.) I would say hold off and start with a decent HU and go from there.

I wouldn't say it would sound nice. It would be a afir bit of bass but SQ would be lacking.

Well, i would prefer to get a 12" L7 but, the cost of the sub, the amp, and the other things, i do not know if it would be worth it, and i'm also wondering if 3 of the 10" Punch subs would put out as much as one of the 12" L7's.

Buy the best gear you can afford with your budget. One L7 would sound MUCH better than 3 of those kits ghetto'd together.

I used to work there myself a few months back and I can tell you the bazooka stuff is not really impressive (in performence) by any means. Also Future SHop only sell single voice coil woofers @ 4ohm, so that amp wont put out what you want it to. Though I will agree I do know what cost is on those products, and for what they are asking, it is a pretty decent price. I just think you might disapointed with it. But remember, you can return the WHOLE stereo back in a month if you dont like it for any reason even if everything works. Though you won't get back any labour costs seeing as how they would have already done the work.

Myself I'm running 2 Kicker L7 12" and just 1 of them would destory a combo of three Punch Stage 1 woofers.

So, I've gotten the impression that i should avoid this, and go with the L7s, even if its more money, I'll be more satisfied with it. Am i correct?
