 Your thoughts on this sub/amp combination

Polk Dual db124 12” Subwoofers with Enclosure (DB212) 720w RMS ¾ inch MDF: The 3/4-inch MDF is the same low resonance material used in the world's finest speaker enclosures. ABS Trim: The front baffle is clad in automotive grade ABS trim for rigidity and resistance to impact. A sheet of Elastomeric damping material isolates the ABS trim from the baffle as it acts as a sealing gasket for the woofers. This "trilaminate" sandwich construction prevents unwanted rattles and resonance, ensuring bass that's as tight as it is powerful. Power Vent: Polk Audio's patented Power Port venting technology reduces air turbulence at the port mouth for higher bass output with vastly lower noise and distortion compared to conventional ports. ABS Grilles: Wheel-style heavy-duty ABS grilles protect the drivers from shifting cargo. Grilles and baffle may be painted to match the vehicle's interior color. Single Voice Coil: 4 Ohm drivers wired in parallel for a net 2-Ohm load, optimum for today's Class D subwoofer amplifiers. Fire-retardant: Flat NOMEX Spiders allow extended linear motion while providing highly reliable mechanical and thermal stability. With a JL e1800D mono subwoofer. It puts out 800w RMS at 2 Ohms.

Well, I'd really like to keep the spending limit to $1,000 or less. And that should cover the sub(s), amp, and cap. Not to mention any wiring kits.

I like those subs because they're decent power wise, look really nice, and are ready to go. It got great customer reviews too, between CC and Polk's website.

1. Don't get a cap, completely worthless
2. CC customers are retarded
3. With 1k you could get RL-S 12 and a pg xenon 1200.1 :) :) :) <-my dream setup

Other subs easily in your price range to consider are rl-p, SI magnum d2, xxx, brahma, and a whole heap more :) for 1k, you can do a LOT better

You sure about the cap? I've already got one amp installed that powers the rear speakers. It's 250w and then the 800w amp. That's 1050 watts excluding the head unit which just powers the front two speakers which isn't much but some nonetheless.

I never really liked caps, i ended up buying a optima yellowtop battery and put it in my trunk, i also had to get a 200 amp relay isolator to charge the battery in the back and so i didnt have two batterys on my alternator, i love it, works great and i can beats for hours.

you electrical system should be fine unless you have an unusually small alt (<80A) and/or blast heavy bass non-stop.

A cap is NEVER a necessity.
