    I’m currently installing 3, skar 12” EVL-12 D4 2500 watt max power DVC 4ohm subs, into a diy vented box in the back of my Tahoe, cannot find a amplifier sufficient enough to power them. Any suggestions? Trying to stick to one amp around $300.

    Hi everyone, this is my first time messing around with speakers and stereo systems. I just bought a new car but it was the cheapest version and the audio truly makes me want to cry.

    Background: I first got into car audio about 3 years ago, when a friend gave me a pair of Sony subwoofers in a box with a Kenwood amp for free.

    So, this weekend I decided to buckle down and finally attempt to add my own auxiliary input to my car stereo, after weeks of telling myself that I wouldn't buy a new stereo under any circumstances.
