I doubt your factory cd-player is stable down at 2 ohms. I recommend hooking your speakers in a series connection. Nothing lower then 4 ohms.

Phoenix Gold makes great subwoofers. They have great sounding and very strong rubber surrounds. I have seen one with the rubber surround damaged by flying objects in the truck. Even tough the surround was shaved thin, they still worked great for many years. This was an older model don’t have much ex...

The Kicker L7's require too much power for your amplifier. Your PG Tantrum 1200.1 would be better suited with two 12 inch L5's. You could also safely go with the 10 inch model. The enclosure best for you will depend on the type of vehicle you have and if the truck is sealed or open.

Well sense you didn’t list your model number I will have to assume on some specs. Most Rockford Fosgate stereo amps are only stable at 4 ohms bridged. Assuming your subwoofers are each 4 ohm, you have to hook each subwoofer to one channel. This is the only safe set-up but doesn’t get the maximum pow...

Your car should be able to handle a 325 watt amplifier. What model and year is your car? Are you running any other aftermarket electronics?

If you still want to use your stock radio there are some options. Wire diagrams can be found on the back of the aftermarket wiring harness...

The best advice I can give you start with the top most piece. Take off the screws you can see, then gently pull the dash. The spots where there is no give is where a hidden screw is located. Such as inside a heater vent. Spots that give a little but then snap back could be attached with hooks that c...

Yes alpine produces solid decks I wouldn’t be surprised if they included dual outputs. To clear things up a wire labeled Power Antenna can be used as your remote wire. This is normal for decks with one remote output.
