Should I BUY? Or should I BUY something ELSE?

Hello,

I have 650 dollars CANADIAN to spend. Installation INC.

I was offered by a local shop this package deal, should I go for it, or I can get better for that money:

2 X 12" Subwoofers (KFC-3514 DVC) - 380RMS approx.

BOX INCLUDED

AMPLIFIER - KAC-X812D

+ All wiring done for,

ALL FOR - 650$ Canadian.

I was a little shocked, as I went through a few systems already, and am a little skeptical, I heard KENWOOD is a good top quality brand... but never knew it was so cheap. Let me know what I should do, should I go for it, or should I not...

If Not, why not?

Kenwood is a great brand for ground pounders.

It seems to me like their package is pretty good. That amp is 1000watt rms, they are installing it to. Sounds like a good price to me.

But is there a better way to go for a different system, that much better? with same money?


Also, how good does it pound, if you look at my other thread i had a KAption Audio system, is it better then that or worse or the same?

I'm a kenwood dealer and yes those subs are entry level, but still built very well and will take a beating. retail - $249 each


The amp is last years and you'll see some good power from it, and it's a well built amp.


Sounds like a good deal to me!
