Hey everyone, Ive been reading your threads for a few days now and Im very interested in getting a sweet system for my car. Problem is, I dont know what anyone is talking about and I really dont know the first thing about buying/installing good hardware. Can anyone point me in the direction of a beginners area or something like that where I can read up on this sort of thing?
Also, because I know I will be buying in the next few weeks, how about a system recommendation for a 1996 Mercury Grand Marquis? I need everything (speakers, amp, subs, head, etc) Ive got a ton of room in the trunk and Im looking to spend up to $1500. Im looking for HUGE bass and decent quality. I appreciate all of your help!
$1500 bucks is gonna give you a lottttt of options. I'm too lazy to build you a system too, and there's so many options that it's impossible for us to tell you what to get, your gonna need to pick some things out yourself.
okay i;ll help a little...lol this is what id do ... (2) 12 inch atlas's for $200 www.ascendantaudio.com zapco 500.1 amp from www.woofersetc.com 380$ zapco 360.4 from same place 430$ (2) infinity reference component sets 85$ each on ebay
thats 1180$ im not going to reccomend a head unit because i feel those are chosen by preference... go to a shop and play around with some.... alpine clarion pioneer premier are a few one to pay attention too though...
but that right there will be a very high quality system that should never give you any problems and will sounds great too
what sub and amp combo would you reccomend though? i was going to say a 12 ava with a zapco 750.2 but that was too much.... maybe because im obsessed with really high quality amps lol... i think i will only ever buy zapco, JL slash, and maybe xtant or us amps or something
Yeah, I guess 1500 bucks can go pretty fast when your buying everything. I really don't wanna suggest amp and sub combo's, because anything I'd say would cost way too much. I hate giving suggestions on combos anways, there's way too much to pick from.
I hear ya on the amps though. I got an Orion HCCA 250 G5.1 sitting in my room. One of the last US made Orion amps. Took forever to find. I'm planning on running an Avalanche 15" with it, but I'm afraid now that I won't have the money in time to buy one. I'm now thinking about an ID MAX or a Sound Splinter 15". Too hard to choose right now though.
Anways, I guess for subs and an amp for Tony, I'd suggest a single 15 or 18 since he said he's got a ton of trunk room and wants "HUGE bass." Rather have an 18 than two 12's.
I was thinking about getting an Avalanche 18" because of the price drop, but I'd never fit a big enough box in my trunk, and I don't plan on doing comps, so it'll be way louder than I'll ever need. James says his 15" makes is ears hurt after a very short time, and he is comparing his to a 15" Brahma, which he was running before off the same amp.
James said, TO HIM, the Avalanche performed well with the 600 wrms that he was running to it. You gotta remember, that meens he was also running 600 wrms to the Brahma. He said the Brahma can of course get louder than the Avalanche, with more wattage running to it. He didn't say either was better, just that the Avalanche worked best with the lower wattage.
