What to Buy??

Sup gentleman, I am looking to buy 2 12in sub's and an amp, nothing too crazy, just something that sounds good, I have a 1990 325is and it is already wired for stereo setup, however, I have no clue about stereo systems and was wondering if I can get a good setup for about 400-500 installed. What should I buy, the previous dood who owned my car had Audiobahn 12's and I think the same for an amp. If you could provide specific model #'s that would be great??

400-500 including the head unit and installation cost? Installing an amp/sub is really easy, so you can save some money there. Another way to save money is to buy off of ebay. I bought an Alpine MRD-301 (~300W x 1) for $200 cad to my door, and another $150 for a infinity reference 12" sub. One sub is all you need for good sound, any more is for showing off and wasting money. Everyone that I know that has 2 12" subs have them turned down, so what's the point? That's 350 for just amp and sub, not including deck, speakers, amp for speakers. Do some research, do it the right way the first time. If you spend $600 on half ass shit, you will be very dissappointed to know that for $1000 you can have awesome SQ.
