Default Post Your Experiences: Didn't Know Better

So I will go first.

I got my first "system" i bought two MTX thunder subs in a small bandpass box... hifonics amp, thought the gain was volume, they lasted a long while before killing the amp the subs only got stinky a few times... they got "loud" lol well compared to all the dual and pyle subs around... but the kicker was i paind about 500 for them...

I should've know better, but I found out you can short out your 0 gauge on you wheel when a piece of it is hanging out of your engine bay. I was 19.

I had a PG M25 under the rear seat of my cherokee powering my 12" W0. To it was a walmart 10 gauge amp install kit. The amp got so hot, it melted the RCA's that I had coiled up under the amp.

First setup I heard was in the back of my cousins geo metro. We had it almost walled. He had a crunch 15 and the amp was mine. It was a Sony xplod 1000 watt 2 channel amp.

My first setup was a pair of Infinity Reference 12s on that same 1000 watt Sony in some prefab Walmart single 12" sub boxes. It maxed out my buddies Radio shack spl meter at 126db.

First system was 2 quantum audio 15s in a probox running off a boss diablo 2000.2.

Only paid $80 for it so cant complain. Pounded like hell for a few years, one of the subs is still alive today. Not bad for 2.5" coil cheap subs.
