Hello all. I am obcessing about car audio right now and I have a few comments/questions/ideas.
If you are going to do something, you can't do it 1/2 a$$ed. Thats always a good philosophy, but can lead to a big expenditure of time and $$$. So I'm trying to get a lot of satisfaction out of my limited resources (aren't we all?)
I'm looking at the Alpine SPX-177a speakers, just over $200 shipped. Rave reviews by those who have installed. Haven't listened to them as I can't find anyone who stocks them around here. Also looking at the Alpine MRV-T320 amp for the fronts, $150 from teh crutchfizzle. 80x2 WRMS. Considering Bi-amping the fronts... or maybe amping the rears too, although a lot of poeple say just lose the rear speakers. I'd like to do some 6" midbass drivers in the back, but that would be an install challenge.
Thinking about putting the amp under the drivers or passengers seat. Not 100% sure why I want to do this. I don't want my nice amp to get kicked around all the time.
A lot of people suggest using perforated aluminum and raaaamaat to seal the front doors completely. I've seen this (and 100% raaamaattted doors and it looks pretty slick but also a little heavy and labor intensive.
What about a group audio-install day? I know that Sam and J are car audio buffs, anybody else planning on going nuts in the next month or so? I can do it all myself but help is fun. Any suggestions/ideas/comments?
