you guys now wha i mean?



I know what you mean but I disagree. There are manufacturers out there who can build absolutely stellar equipment but don't. I think a big part of it is places like Ebay. 10 years ago there was no such thing and you bought from your local shop. They wanted your business and took care of you becauseof it. Once Ebay came you could get items (although usualy unauthorized) for much cheaper and brick and mortar businesses suffered. They needed a way to compete with online companies and as such companies lowered the quality so that your local shop could maintain some sort of margin while still being competitive. Unfortunately its consumers that has brought this lower quality (in all things when you think about it) forth by constantly demanding lower prices.

I remember 10 years ago when people lauded over JL equipment and you rarely heard that they were overpriced. Today its all you hear but when you think about it the pricing scheme of all their lines haven't actualy changed that much. Some companies are out there that have a great product at cheap prices but it seems as if most of those companies always seem to close shop after a couple of years...anybody remember Adire, Entasy, and Mpyre?

to m

people are still producing good equipment, look at the herculese amps, earthquake phd20000, soundstream XXX's (just got my hands on 2 of these) but u gotta pay for it, same as its always been, but the quality of the cheaper stuff is alot better, example, also got myself some audiobahn immortal quad voice coil 2ohm 2250 watt 15"s and they pump something insane and were relitively cheap!

I dont think I've ever bothered to post what my actual system is in this thread as it really was not very good lol..

The system when I bought the car consisted of a JVC H/U, Pioneer 6" (front) and 6x9" (rear), with a 12" Pioneer VCCS sub powered by an Alpine 2 channel amp (unsure which exactly).


But good news is now here. Ive just installed my new sub and amp and power cable....and will be installing a new head unit and front splits soon hopefully. The amp is an Option Audio X3100 (3kw rms @ 2 ohms) which is powering a Digital Designs 9512 sub.

Anyways. Will post a pic of the enclosure which is 1.8cu tuned to 40hz as soon as I upload it. I cant wait to get it metered as the thing is bloody loud!

I just cut the trim in the rer near the back seat
There is already a spot for 4" to go there i just made it a little bigger & a quick touch up will look ok

There is also in the boot lid if you take the trim off there room to put 6" there just need to make a spacer

Must be a big sub box i got a 15" sub in my boot now & i can get the spare wheel out with no problems
& still got half my boot space left :)

yer... it is a massive sub box..

i made it custom so it fits exactly in the boot with the 4" still in there from the back.

but its alright now... i took out the 4" rear spacer pod thingy's and i made brackets so i could have the 6" fit on them on the sides of the box..

there is no rattle when they pump and it sounds much better to have rear speakers in.

i knoe people say f*ck the rear speakers... but when u put some in... it make a difference!!! and don't say invest in good front speakers.. cause i have already!!... MB Quartz cost me a few hundred back then!

May aswell post mine up aswell

Alpine CDA-9813 Headunit
Bezerk 2Way 4 inch (sound crap)
Alpine Type S 6x9s in custom parcel tray
Pioneer 800w Mono Amp (another on the way hoping)
2x 12 inch Pioneer Subs

= Under $600 :D

Proposed....New Alpines Up Front :wink:

Its a little mess at the moment, but was only put in night before. Unfortnuately can only run one sub as the amp/cable cant handle it.

already ahead of you, i was just to do the basic wiring and rthey finish it off and make it perfect. I got told it might be the thickness about the actual power wire that connects the battery to the amp (insert technical term here :roll: )

Just waiting till tomoz,
