ok, im looking into getting a zx3 for my car, what's a good system i could look into with a 10" and an amp that will make it growl. the less i spend the better, like if i could get it for 300-400 that would be best, 500 being the most i can spend. i dont want to get the crap sound you get from cars where it rattles and what not, i just want a good amount of bass.
mostly anything you put in a car will make it raddle, this would be because people do not know what sound deadener is, and if i were you, i would think about spending 50 bucks on sound deadener, but are you more into spl(sound pressure level) or sq(sound quality) and do you need a box? can u build one, or i can for you for 50 plus shipping, do you need wiring included in this, do you need a hu(head unit) or just the sub and amp and box for this??? im going to work with a 400 doller system
by the way, the 10 inch commment is just personal preference, everyone hears things different
hmm, well i was thinking 10" sence most of my friends have them, and i like them, that and they dont cost as much. the better the sound quality the more i would like it seems to be a general rule for me, i just put a hts in my room, and its build for quality not loudness. as for spl, does that just make them louder or what, im kinda new to this ;). a box would be nice, but given the size of the trunk im thinking about putting the sub in a side pannel of the trunk, so i can have more space, again, if one works better then the other, let me know. yes, i do need wires also, but if your going for $400 you can alow $50ish for wires and screws and anything like that i might need.
12" subs are louder than 10s (comparing apples to apples). They also generally offer better performance at lower frequencies and IMO are the most well rounded sub for most car applications. 10" subs will win out in the area of midbass transition, they will blend in with the front stage better due to both lower resonance and lower SPL, meaning the sub has less chance of overpowering the front stage. There are some very good 10" subs out there, and they can hit low and hard if you get the right ones.
when i first made my account i didnt give an e-mail, forgot to, now i added one, and it wants me to give it an activation key that was sent to my e-mail. i have the key, and the e-mail told me to log in and put it in, but when i log in it i get a message saying i need to give them my reg key before i sign in, so how do i do this?
if i were u, i had the same philosophy. so i got 2 10" infinity reference running off a profile amp. the whole deal cost me 350. email me if you want all of the links to the places i got the stuff. let me tell you, if you listen to rock like the offspring, korn, the killers, etc... these subs blend in well. just dont go around trying to compete with other brands while listenin to rap crap.
that sub will sound GREAT and get decently loud, i have 2 of them and they are pretty nice, but to build a box there is alot of planning on diong it, alot of people on here would do it, or there are placeson the net to buy, if you want to build your own, you need,
3/4 mdf i use drywall screws carpeting for it something to insulate it to make sure its totally sealed
i build alot of boxes, i just dont know what everything is calle dlol
ok, i think i will prolly go with one of those for now, do i need a box to mount it on the side? if i get this, and say when i have more money and want a little more bass, could i just get a nother one with a nother amp and do the trick?
i wouldnt suggest diong somen like that, and besides i think he used an infinit baffle or he fiberglassed that, you canyt really do that well with wood, i would suggest if i were you to build your own plain everyday sealed square box lol
ok, i noticed on other threads yall are talking about hitting like 150 160 and what not, what are yall talking about? oh and you said you build boxes? i might ask you to make me one . can i mount an amp ontop of the box to save space and not hurt anything?
yea thats eay enough, and i do build boxes i love to lol, but with the db things, db=decibles, basically how LOUD it is and basically 150-160 db's will damage your hearing permently if you listen to it for like over 5 mins lol, and we use this system to determine who islouder, people get there stuff rated and go to the shop and get tested with a mic and see howloud they are, its very unwise to listen over 130 db's for long periods of time. you odnt have to worry about this, but alot of people on this forum can get rreallllly loud so they do lol. but yea iw ould build you one, it would be 50 plus shipping, so like 80 bucks, but you only live in Tn and im in Ky lol so it would be to much
oh i see, what do most people hit that i would hear around my school? and what do you think mine will hit? so i have an idea of how load i will be. oh and i just realized, i havnt picked an amp, what amp should i get, the sub has 350rms 1600 max.
