Hi guys, I wish I'd found this forum a few weeks ago, but better late than never. In any case, I know zilch about car audio, so naturally I dove in head-first and started buying stuff. You'll laugh, but I installed a Sony headunit (CDX-5710) because it was cheap and it had an input for my XM tuner.
Ignorance is bliss, and I was so happy with the improvement over my stock cassette/radio (which had stopped working) that I ordered some Polk DB650 speakers for the front doors. Those are due to arrive in a few days, but in the meantime I continued down the slippery slope and ordered one of those marked-down Orion 4004 amps.
You might be asking yourself if this is going anywhere, and it is. I'd like to run the fronts off the amp, and bridge the other two channels to run a sub in the trunk. Can you recommend a Polk sub that would be satisfied with ~200W? I only have a 75amp alternator, and I'd like to be conservative and stick with just the one amp, if at all possible.
I have a lot of woodworking tools, and I'd like to build the enclosure myself. I'm pretty sure that what I want is a sealed box, since I don't need it to be really loud. Presently, I'm not using the rear speakers, so I may remove them to let the bass pass into the cabin easier.
Thanks in advance for your advice!
