    in michigan we got this place called gibraltar trade center where you can get all the sound system shit for the lows so I always went thru them

    Them niggas at Gibraltar be on some bullshit tho. The majority of them ain't true dealers, so if your shit blows you gotta haggle with them to get it replaced. On top of that they sell bullshit like Boss, Kenford, Rockwood, and all them other garbage ass brands.

    Fuck that flea market shit. Just go to a reputable dealer like Mikey's or Car Tunes.
    i'm not sure which entity leaves people more abused and lost; the Porn Industry or Bad Boy Records.

    that's the only reason you got it done with no hassle.

    I worked for these Chaldeans that had a lil car audio shop in Ypsilanti for a few months back inna day. They had a spot at Gibraltar that they would sell from on the weekends and I would have to install it during the week at their brick-and-mortar shop. They used to intentionally sell broken amps, especially higher end Rockford joints, just to get your money, have me install the broken amp to make it look like shit is legit. It wouldn't work so then they would make an excuse for it and try to either move you into some other bullshit ass amp for the same price or whatever, or they might actually order a new one for you.

    I caught wind of it when I started writing down the serial numbers of the shit I was installing and started seeing the same numbers over and over. I quit after two months 'cause I wasn't finna put my name behind that shit. I had a rep in SE Michigan as one of the better installers and especially known for building custom subwoofers enclosures. I wasn't about to fuck up my rep for them dudes.

    I've only really trusted JL Audio when i've had systems, they're true to power, long lasting, and have great sound quality. They don't hit sloppy at all. You can throw a lot of power at em and they'll smile and keep on slappin.

    Hifonics and basically anything from MaxxSonics is heavily slept on IMO, offers the same high quality shit at a lot cheaper price.

    brx12d4.png

    I got 2 of the older model 15's of these series on a older model 1200 watt mono block Hifonics Brutus amp in a Mazda 626 and my shit beat. I had the subs longer than the amp because I used to be on a Crunch 1400 watt 2 channel til I switched to that mono block 4 years ago.

    I had my shit for years and never had no problems, I voluntarily choose to switch out that 2 channel for that mono block cause a car audio tech told me I wasn't maxing out my subs potential on that 2 channel.

    There are a lot of brands that make good quality. U the right wiring the right box and amp go a long way. Trunk type and insulation as well

    Question to the audio heads!

    I have a F150 and it has an factory 8 inch sub under the backseat. It blew a while ago, it still works, but on certain bass notes it rattles (especially when the volume is high).

    It has it's own amp and I think it has somewhere around 120-150 watts. My question is it possible to replace it w/ another 8" sub on some plug and play shit? If so what kind? Would i have to add another amp? I just want clean bass w/o having to completely change everything, b/c the OEM sub is/was pretty good.

    Thanks in advance!

    That amp and sub probably were made for each other and if u get an aftermarket sub it will be t to strong for that set up and u won't get the best sound quality. Take it to detail shop u never know. If the repair for the sub is high I'd just do another amp and sub.

    @MallyG
    U can buy a factory replacement off amazon.
    Or if u want to change it out, u will need a dual voice coil 2+2 ohm shallow mount sub
