He has a 2003 Jeep Cherokee and about $500-$600 to spend on a nice audio system.

Which subs/amps would you recommend?

He's already going with a Pioneer Headunit, so that leaves about $500 left to spend on the subs and the amps.

check for local sales. A friend of mine picked up a JL 12 W3 in a box and a JL 200 monoblock amp for 300 bucks. It hits pretty hard, especially because its in an SUV.

Is he going to allocate any money for highs and mids? The majority of music lies in that particular range.

For now he just wants to replace the stock headunit, stock speakers and add an amp for bass, and two subs.

thats asking a lot for only 500 dollars.

Well, i'd say that alpine type S subs are pretty decent for the price (2 x 12" on ebay for 140)
Hifonics 500 watt monoblock amp runs about 160 off ebay. With shipping it should come out to be around 350.
Wiring for your amp and subs will cost you around 40 bucks.
Finally, a set of JL or infinity reference components should run you about the last 150 bucks.

i agree about the use of cheap comps, if you can find some that ask for 50 watts, I think it'd be fine off the HU. Kicker compvr's are a good bargain sub IMO

Pioneer subs are pretty good. He could pretty much run a pioneer system and be satisfied. Only thing watch out for pioneer amps. There is a certain mono block that it is so hot it causes fire:lol: . So maybe a RF, JBL,Hifonics, MTX amp will do a good job.

If you want to try something at decent price try Cerwin Vega. I gave my friend 3 of them at 200 watts each and the play smooth. The new improve vega's are great smooth precise bass. You can get 3 for less then 200 bucks with 400 watts of power each.

I'll talk to him and let you know.

Also, for two 10" Special Edition Audiobahn subs (double coil, 300 watts), which amp or how many watts would you recommend?

To be honest I'm not event familiar with those what's the model number. Like any sub just try to run it to the rms. Wire it so it can handle the proper resistance. An amp with the correct power will be fine.

So, if they're 300 watts RMS, a 700 watt amp will be good?
