Need help

I have 3 rockfordfosgate t1 subs and a 2001bd amp. Where would I go to find out box dimensions air space and so on ? What would be a good choice for front and rear deck speakers, currently I have some Rockford series speakers not sure what series but there about 6 years old. I would like a studio quality sound with the option for heavy bass, if this is possible. any information will be help full I don't know much thanks

for the subs and airspace question... look at the manual and it usually gives a recommended sealed and ported enclosure volume measurement. then you can look up basic subwoofer enclosure designs or check out forums and ask a builder for designs and build your own or find a builder that will ship.

as far as cabin speakers, i chose hertz 6.5in components for the front and my old pair of jl c2-650 6.5in components for the rear. some people here will tell you to leave the rears out, i say fudge that. as far as brand, decide how much you want to spend and search for speakers in that budget. id rather get a used high quality speakers than new mid quality speakers.

definitely check out forums. tons of information (and lots of
"this sub vs that sub" threads) and lots of info on amazing brands that your average person hasn't heard of because theyre not in best buy and more than likely not in your local car audio shop

if youre going with a basic square ported box you can use this box calculator that lots have used. plug in numbers and it gives you dimensions of what to build to. gives you the option of choosing dimensions and tuning of the box

heres the template for front door to fit 6.5 speakers. might have to do some trimming to fit the speakers magnet
