Update: car audio setup

I posted a setup that I had planned but it was delayed because I had trouble getting a job (I'm only 16) so I never could get around to it, so now I'll be able to actually keep up with it since I now have a job

Previously I was running 2 10" kickers 150 watts rms each with my 1200 watt rms Brutus (had the amp powered low obviously) Recently I upgraded that to 2 12" Alpime type r's that are 1000 watts rms each.
Which is the setup I run now, still with the powered down because it well, overpowers the cars stalk speakers which are luckily decently loud.

For what I still have left to add are 2 paid of Alpine type xpro component speakers for the car doors. I found for about $300 each pair which will be powered by a Rockford 4 channel amp feeding 100 watts of rms to each the amps around $200 I think I'll have to check when I get home.

Also adding a pair of 6x9 focals to the back which will be lowered by a Rockford 2 channel amp giving about 100 watts of rms to each speaker.

I'll also be buying a 5 fraud capacitator for the system and a equalizer.

The last thing to add to my list is a 7" boss head unit that runs for about $350

In total it'll run just under $2000

Hopefully it'll be done in the next couple off months, any input?

Mods so far:
-6000k HID Xenon lights
-Hertz HSK 165 XL front speakers
-MB Quart 1000 rms 4 channel amplifer
-Kenwood Ts rear speakers
-CDT Audio rear deck 6x9's
-2 Alpine Type R subwoofers 1000 rms each
-Brutus 1200 rms Mono Amplifier
-Black Drag rims
-215/45/17r Tires
-Tinted tail lights
-Underglow led lights

thats a whole lotta sound.

















haha I say do it. It will be one kick a$$ setup, especially in a hatch where you dont have to go through a back seat. I personally used to be into that scene. I had 2 12's kicking with 1000 watt 4 channel amp. had Clarion for all 4 doors. Sucker was LOUD. Now, I'm into nice full sound. I personally cant do loud anymore. Im looking for a simple 12" powered sub to fill out the factory sound. That will be plenty for me

Alpines have been some of the best subs I've seen on the market. I think this setup will be plenty for this little car

As for me I'm running Alpine 6 1/4" type S component in the front, 6 1/2" type E coaxial in the back (due to be replaced unless the new head unit I get makes them louder) along with a Kicker 300.2 amp and Kicker CVR Comp 12" sub just about a grand for all so far but it turns heads

Had them professionally done at a shop he said he had done an accent last week and knew they fit with no gouging because the stock speakers have a housing around them taking up room and they sound great but the back speakers are too quiet I think because the stock radio is only pushing like 47 watts per channel when I want closer to 60 or 65.

Ah I see, I'm jus getting the 5.25" to make it easy, the back speakers on mine are quiet also, I just put the fader back to help compensate for the loss and balance it out, which isn't that bad because then I can turn it all the way up without hurting the speakers I have it set to -3 back I think

Rear speakers aren't supposed to be loud. They are there for "filler sound" so the sound field doesn't sound so hollow. The fronts are the mains in any speaker setup. 47 watts is plenty of power for what they are doing, but if you choose to amp them, keep the sound at least neutral, or slightly forward, not back, if you want the best sound coming to your ears.

I choose -3 because to me it felt the fullest, at 0 it felt like behind me there was nothing there, but -3 to me at least, feels its fullest and nicest sounding
