I used to be a big bass head back in my late teens, blew up the amp and sold it all. Now I'm in my mid 30s and got bit by the audio bug again. This time around I'm getting into the more technical side and not just trying to be load lol.
Currently have the following in an 08 Honda civic si and how much I paid so far.
Pioneer appradio 3 - $300
Cerwin Vega xed 6.5 components front and rear - $100 both
10" prototype sub from robot underground $80 -sa8 v1.5 magnets 10" ti basket, carbon fiber cone and dust cap in a ported box -$40
Kenwood excelon 900-5 - $100
I am very happy so far with my budget build, next would probably be add another sub, bigger amp or a dedicated sub amp and afterwards upgrade my components, add a crossover, may add one or two dedicated midbass drivers as well. So many options!
Anyway, thanks for reading and I hope to contribute in the audio world somehow.
