personal opinion, too many subs. and unless you plan on spending about 400-600 per sub you won't get a lot of bass. The infinity subs don't hit as low (htz) as say a fosgate, JL, or even audiobahn. You'll get a lot more for the money with any of those, On the flip side the infinitys make great mid and high range speakers, but still on the high side.

As for the alternator, replace your ac compressor or power steering with a second alternator.

Good luck though.

Peace/\

ya i have a 15" fosgate but i didnt want to put 2 of those since i just bought the 3 12" infinitys and kinda wanted to go through with the infinity project but do u think a 170 output altenator would work

the best box i've ever seen in a hatch (91 SI) was set down in the spare tire opening... it was one 12" in the center and then three 8" around it in a triangle pattern, they were all Polk MOMO.... he's went through three back windows with this setup and i got a chance to hear it at a sound comp.... it was nice as hell... he ran the 12 off one amp and then the three 8 off another amp.... and they were all cap'd and had filters on them set so the 8's didn't bottom out and the 12 didn't go reaching for those high notes

hey bro whats up ... i cant spell but bear with me

First i would not mix 10" and 12" diffrent frequincys your sound would be wayyyy off.

15" subs will only produce LOWS just for rap if thats what your looking for thats cool ..
It also has lots to do with the box build...
you could do a second batt or a beefed up alt but do it right the first time
I can get you equipment and a box design specs for what subs you choose to use .. just pm me if intrested
Good luck
Bro

Weird. 2 H2 15's on 3200rms didnt pop my window. It was enough for 3 state records though.

Bizzar, note the popping hatch glass was in the 4g HB, not like our 5g's.........

Yeah, you can't seal a 5g HB glass, but you can use the "loose" rear glass as a tuning aid :)

Likely a 4g ricer tweaked chassis putting weird stress on the glass, allowing it to crack easy.

Bizzar, reflected wave energy from your setup in the pic would be hitting about mid chest
or a little higher, aimed right at the mic :)
