    Car audio Poll.

    I know this has been covered before, but with the ever changing car audio world, I'd like to know what you all have, why you chose it, or what you wish you had and why.

    I've got,
    PNAV-7015 DVD Receiver w/ Navi
    Sirius Satelite radio
    Rockford Fosgate Punch P4004 Amp
    Rockford Fosgate Punch P5002 Amp
    PPI Par 245 EQ
    Kove Audio Opulent Series 6 1/2" Components (Front)
    Kove Audio Opulent Series 4" Mid-only (rear)
    Kove Audio 10" T3 Armageddon Sub w/ cusrom enclosure.

    I like these components, as $ - Performance is very good, sound quality is decent, but will likely change amps and speakers soon to Audison and MBQ's or Dynaudio.

    Those fools, EVO vs. STi??? That's like comparing ....wait a minute...there's no comparison. The Suby's still working!!! The evo...well... I hope he got the extended warranty.

    I have:

    Kenwood KDC-X679 AM/FM/CD
    Kenwood Sirius Tuner
    MB Quart Reference 6.5" Components
    JL 8w7
    JL 450/4 - 300wrms to the sub and 75wrms to each component set

    I chose this equipment becaust it sounds excellent, with a pretty low total weight. This is in a 2004 Wagon.

    I'm a JL dealer. Where did you buy it from, I might be able to get it fixed cheap (less than $200), if not free (excl. shipping).

    I have (in my current car (S13)):

    Empeg 40GB indash MP3 player - Because I fell in love with it @ 1st sight.
    3 Linear Power amps
    Altec Lansing ALC-10(?) X-over
    5 1/4 component alpines up front
    6x9 Altec Lansings in the rear parcel shelf (with some wild CF cones)
    15" Atlas Sub (forget mfg @ moment)

    To *my* ear, I haven't heard many car stereos that sound better than what I have in mine..

    What I want (for my future car (STi)):

    Kenwood 7015 DVD w/ Navigation added later
    Sirius Satelite
    Stock speakers probably won't last long, and I will probably want some kind of a sub, but nothing nearly as heavy as what I have now.. Too much weight in my current system
    I haven't listened to any new speakers in a LONG time, so who knows what I will like now.

    Hifonics. I'm a dealer for them as well.

    I can hook you up with the 7015, as well as high end speakers and amps. Check my vendor listings.

    Yep, I actually cracked open the rear hatch today to see as I was curious.. I'm gonna miss my stereo when I get my STi.. I'm sure you'll be hearing from me a good deal

    Alpine CDA-9835 -cuz i wanted it to match the gauges
    JBL C608 GTI 6.5" components - no particular reason, shoulda gotten quarts or focals instead...
    JBL Px600.2 amp for mids (180w rms x 2)... Really nice amp
    Resonant Engineering XXX12 subwoofer... cuz RE's subs are absolutely awesome
    JBL BPx2200.1... to match my other JBL in styling, and besides - everyone should have a 2500w rms amp in their trunk

    Rear 4" Full Range Speakers - MB Quart RKC 110
    Subwoofer - Bazooka 8" RS804DVC

    Head Unit & Changer

    CD Changer - Sony CDX-757MX

    Amps
    Power Acoustik LT480/2 Driving Front

    Head Unit: Alpine CDA-9827
    Amps: Rockford Fosgate 4004 (speakers) and RF 2002 (sub)
    Front Speakers: Boston Acoustics FS60 (6.5" mid, .75" tweeter)
    Rear Speakers: Boston Acoustics RX47 (4" mid)
    Sub: Boston Acoustics Generator 10"

    + some Dynamat for the doors, just for good measure.

    I'm pretty happy with it. The bass isn't wake-the-neighbors loud, but it's got enough punch to keep me going.

    Head Unit: Alpine CDA-9833
    Front Speakers: Focal 165 K2P 2-way Comps
    Rear Speakers: MB Quart DKE 2-Way Coaxials
    Amp: Phoenix Gold 400.2 Ti

    I will get a sub in the future, but right now it's not high on my priority list. Also, Sounddomain sent me a defective amp, so right now it's been sent in to PG to be repaired under warranty. Sucks because I've had my Focals in for a month and still haven't heard them play yet.
