bastard. Thats hella cheap shipping. Mine cost nearly $80.

Just so we're clear, you mean SVC 1230 and not DVC 1232.

how many channels is the amp? Is it 2ohm stable? whats the RMS/channel?

shipping may be cheap, but pres, your boxes are nicer, and 99 percent sure, weigh a lot more because of better wood.

but cool box, 2 1230s? thats a lot of low end right there.... have fun, and please dont drive by my house at 4 am in the morning

There should be clearly labeled + and - marks on the amp. The box should have a + and - connector. Connect those to the amp, and do the same for the inside.

To install the sub, buy screws. screw it in. If possible drill pilot holes.

Also peal and stick the gaskest to the back of the sub to prevent airleaks.

Also, that amp is not very good for subs. Far too weak. That will give it 50W RMS. It likes 300W RMS.

The best cheap amp I've used with good results is the Kenwood KAC 7201. Decent power. Far better than the RF.

It's a gaurantee that what you buy won't be Dead On Arrival.

Very important when buying used audio equipment online or off.

Exactly. I bought my MRV-T420 for around 160. Retail is near 500. Works fine.
