Apr 13th, 2003, 04:52 AM
I was wondering if anyone could help me out. im getting a new head unit and cd changer (alpine) and i am thinking of an amp and sub to go with it (i also think it would be best of everything was the same make). However, im not made of money. so is there a good value for money sub/amp that alpine do that any1 recomands?
[Edit - also if someone has alredy talked about this a link to the post, porbebly should of done a search first, sorry]

the only problem is all the numbers sound good but i dont understand them... for a mini what sorta max wat output for and amp/sub would be ample?

have you looked at the sub/amp/box combos... they usually match them quite well.
Alpine is £200...
Ok... what size sub do you want? 10" or 12"... what music is being listend too or what kinda space do you want to use? There won't be too much difference in space used in single subs, but 10" would be better for punchy music (electronic stuff, dance, trance), and 12" for songs with rolling bass (hip hop).

mainly rock i guess, i know its not the normal thing for subs, but i like my base :D space isnt a problem, jsut as lon as its fits

Just a thought. Have you considered an active bass tube?
They're usually a good bet when space is a factor like it is in the MINI, and they're usually easy to remove if you need the space in the boot.
I had a Kenwood one in my Fiesta, and then my Cinquecento before it got half-inched. Sound was great. Cost about £250 at the time, though this was about 6 years ago.
It's probably the route i'll be taking with my MINI when it arrives.

whats a base tube? never heard of one...

I'd say 12" is your best bet then...
A bass tube is just a 'compacted sub' as it were... won't replicate the bass quite so well but will save a fair amount of space.
This should sound quite good for a low price :)

To be honest, for similar money I think you'd probably be better off getting an Infinity basslink. They go for around 200 squid. Bit more stylish than having a big box in the boot.
