I seriously hope you didn't pay those prices. I really hope.
Headunit - $183.54 + $8 shipping.
Amp - $428.94
Speakers - $99.97 (2)
Tweeters - $69.99 (2)
Even for just those few items, I already shaved $790 off.
I didn't even check other sites, just simply checked amazon. Also, if you run 4 tweeters, your staging is going to be terribly off unless they are mounted perfect.
Your sound stage is supposed to be completely in front of you, besides a sub. Most people pouring this much into their system actually don't run speakers in there rear doors, or anything past their seat to avoid sound staging issues. The idea is to have the sound coming from the dash, almost like the music is being played on your hood live.
I'm not here to bash, I just really wanted you to know quantity doesn't buy quality nor does price.
Also, amp volume knobs actually cause your sound to be muddy. They control the gain on your amp rather than the actual volume. You'd be better off running gain off the equalizer on the HU.
Wow very nice build idea!! I can't wait to see your work.
I'm really curious how you like those 6x9 speakers paired with the tweeters. I really want to add some tweeters up front in mine.
And whoa that sub looks awesome! I bet it makes a lot of great sound for being somewhat compact. If I ever get a huge itch for more bass I might have to get something like that JL.
I was about to say if you payed all of that.. Idk if i would even be upset for you.. ha. With $2,500 I could have a competition system.
Yeah man its going to sound sweet for sure. I just bought a new sub a 15" RE audio SE. Powering it to my powerbass 1500.1 amp. Its gonna be stupid loud.. lol. If all goes as planned im hoping to get it installed friday or maybe even saturday. I'm pumped.
The excitement begins!! I bet you can't wait for the UPS/FEDEX/USPS guy!!!
