this is gonna include a stereo:

At the moment i know that i want:

Pioneer DEH-P4850MP Headunit: 300 bux
Jaycar Component Response speakers : 260 for 2 pairs
I want to spend about 800 on the amp, enclosure and 2 sub's

That headunit is decent, but by the end of the year there will probably be something better out.

Good luck bro.

yeah i gathered....
im still not sure about what im gonna do exactly...

IM doin alot of interior work so whatever is left over cash wise will go into the stereo
I think i just night run the RCA leads and power cable to the boot and leave them till i save up for a decent bass pumping setup

clarion has a pre loaded ported dual 12" enclosure retailing for $359 so u can get it less then that and go for a pioneer gm7200m mono bloc to power it for bout $300 should sound good and is what i will soon be running in my car when i sell my 15"

I bought 2 JL 12WO (12") subs, cost me $340 for the pair, and a JL e2150 amp for $350. The subs are rated low (125wrms each), and so is the amp (40x2 wrms), but overall it cranks hard as f**k!!

JL Audio are bloody fantastic, I would definetely recommend them to anyone!!

I haven't had my stezza tested or anythin, but it's set of car alarms b4, and when I go passed Repco my bro (he works there) rekons it shakes the wall so much that everything on it is vibrating HAHA!!

And the best bit of all.....it shits all over a lot of stereo's which costed a lot more then mine :p

About the box, well I paid about $30 for some MDF, about another $15-$20 to get it all precut, then I chucked it 2gether myself. I made it to the subs specs to, which is a downside when u buy boxes already made.

The gear I bought was bottom of the range stuff, but it cranks hard. JL don't make the 12WO's anymore, they have replaced it with another model...they're now white....but I doubt the price would be much more then the 12WO's.

Just did some research...
Place in syndey makes wicked fibreglass boxes to fit 2x 12" subs..
N they ship down here...

Im looking at the Response Pro D-Class amp... 1500W... that should do.. :p
Also looking at the 750w rating response pro subs...

That should give a fair kick...

Having 2 subs only adds an extra 3db to the sound u get... But looks tough..:p
