I am new to the car audio stuff like amp, sub...etc. But now i am on for purchsing a good hard hitting bass system. As i was surfing through the internet i came across Kenwood 500-watt Dual 10" Bass Package , this caught my attention. How hard this package kicks? If you suggest this package, how much this whole pack weigh? Coz, i need to pack this to India where they allow 23 kg (50 lbs) only.
If not as an entire package, should we go for individual components (amp, player and subwoofer) . if your answer is yes, please suggest me few goodies in my budget not crossing 500$.
Thank you in advance.
It's not a "Bad" package, although I haven't read a lot of positive reviews of Kenwood subs.
Crutchfield used to have an Alpine package with two Type E subs and a 500W Alpine amp.
I don't see it anymore, but I think it was only about $50 more to buy it separately (basically, you got the box or the wiring kit for free if you bought the package).

You would have to contact Crutchfield on the weight - but I have a question: 50 lbs per item or 50 lbs total. (I.e. if the package weighs more than 50 lbs, would you be okay buying the amp, the box, and the subs separately as long as any one of them didn't weigh over 50 lbs, or is 50 lbs the limit for everything?)

I assume you mean amp, enclosure, subwoofer (not sure what player would be), you'll also need a wiring kit.

Sure thing - budget:

Anyone else have suggestions?

speakers, no amp, no subs
Thank you very much for your information. With your input, I visited a electronic mall near by to learn more about the fore said models. I couldn't find the sony xplod amp, there. I will buy that online from clutch field. But coming to the sub and s/o box i need your advice again.
What i understood is that 2 subs (10") and a dual sound ordance box are too much weighing for my checkin baggage. Can i connect a signle sub to the amp? Would that single sub give me enough bass, atleast satisfactory!!! Coz, i can't bag more than 46 lbs while going back to India. Please suggest me a single sub which is more efficient and yet budget friendly. Awaiting your reply. Thanks again, TigerHeli.
Okay - you mis-read a little bit of my reply.
I liked the Kicker subs. I didn't particularly like the Sony amp - but it was the only thing Crutchfield had that would reasonably power the subs in your price range.
Now if you want a single sub ...
I would probably go with the Alpine MRP-M500 amp and a DVC-4-ohm either Alpine Type R, Kicker CVR, or Rockford Fosgate P3 sub.
single sub makes a BIG difference in what i would recommend. you can get approximately similar bass with a single ported sub (perhaps superior, if the box is well-designed) as you would get with a pair of sealed subs.
heaviest item is gonna be the box. if it's possible to build the box yourself (sealed boxes are not all that hard, and very forgiving of minor calculation errors) or have the enclosure built locally, you'd only have to ship the amp and sub(s). that weight savings would allow you tremendous freedom in your choices.
It sounds like the total weight of all luggage is 50 lbs so knowing much is already used can help us on where to go. If we want to get precise, how much does your luggage weigh?
Because my name is on the business, I work hard to make sure you get the best possible shopping experience. I look forward to hearing your comments .
