those 350 watt speakers are prolly the peak rating, you need to know the RMS, thats why they are recomending the 150 watt amp, you also are going to need a box incase you dont have one (thats pretty obvious duh) but other than that you need some rca wires, some speaker wire, power wire, ground wire, and remote wire, rockford makes wire packages that include the power, ground, and remote for about 40 bucks, you can get the package that includes everything for like i think 60, i recomend to get just the ground and power with the remote wire package, and then get the rcas and speaker wire from wal mart as your not banging much wattage and the extra money will be a waste

Moe,

If you only have one 10, then a 400 amp is enough. go to best buy or some big store like that. you dont seem to know much about systems, so stay at Best Buy or Wal Mart for amps. they sell pretty good shit at good prices for people in your situation. I myself have two 10s Kenwood and a 1800 watt Kenwood amp that hits hard as fuck because they were both made exactly for one another, I got a competition system. Actually, I suggest you sell it off ebay, amps and installation will be a minimum of $100, not worth it cause it wont hit hard at all and would also most likely require you to change your headset or get an euqalizer cause the treble would be covered by bass, that might suck and cost more $$. systems are no joke kid, a wack system is worse than no system.

its up to you though, anything else, just ask cause Ive been around.

 

Tease,

a 10 can hit as hard as a 12 anyday. and probably cleaner too. Dont get me wrong, Id love to have two 12s, and highe watt amps, but Id probably go deaf and my windows would all crack or some shit.

oh shit, wait.

2 10s in a custom box is nto gonan get shit out of a 400 watt amp, better make it at least a 600 watt amp. depends on your budget, amke it also a Lanza amp for better performance.

oh and make sure the subs work by getting them tested at any car ausio store or best buy or whatever for free using any charm you have, if not they might charge you to test the subs. it would suck dick if the subs dont work once the amp is installed, ive seen it happen.

everyone has to realize that his shit is 350 watts each sub, not both subs. I dont think so at least, it doesnt seem that realistic that a 10 sub would only be 175 watts. thats just too gay. trust me, the 350 watt each sub peak performance can get louder and hit harder than you would imagine, but it all depends on other shit like the amp, the headset, and the way the car moves bass and music around. keep your back seats lowered all the time when your system is on.

 

shit Tease, you have two 12s and a 1000+ watt amp in your car and you live in a Texas suburb somewhere? thats some wigger shit!!

a 600 amp is enough for the position your in.

 

tint your windows while your at it, its also a requirment for proper bass hitting cars.

all i hear is rambling, rambling, rambling...

 

moe...

1. get yourself a nice cheap amp

something like a 2-channel amp

that puts out 150watts a channel or so

it will make bass and wont break your wallet

 

2. get yourself the amp wiring kit

from best buy or circuit city or walmart or auto zone, pep boys even

again this wont be the best of components but it will do the job

 

3. hook it all up and have fun until the subs fall apart

 

simple as that.

 

sidenote:

to the people talking about 10s vs. 12s

it all depends on AIRSPACE

the construction of your box

the interior space in your car/truck

the acoustics of your car/truck

hatchback/ trunk

bandpass/sealed

free air/etc.
