Audio has been ordered, need suggestion...

Well, today was the day I sucked it up and spent money on a Stealthbox and a PDX-V9 (for $300 off). I've searched many peoples threads, and saw some added the LC7i to their set up, is it necessary to have? Also, I saw many decided to go with Focals, where did you go about ordering? I saw Crutchfield had them, but it said it only fits the rear doors.

If you are keeping the factory Headunit then yes you need some sort of Line Out Converter to give you RCA outs to feed the amp. If you're just doing the sub the Lc7i should be fine but if you're upgrading miss and highs also try looking into something better. Crutch field will tell you they won't fit but actually does. I went with 6 1/2 Hertz HSK's in the front and made my own adapter. They fit fine.

Thanks for the input, called and they said they added a Metra Line Out Converter for $15, is it going to be much worse than going with a LC7i

Are you just upgrading the sub? Also what factory system do you have? Is it the 9 speaker Alpine?

9 Speaker alpine is being replaced, new stealthbox sub, 4 new speakers, 2 tweeters, Alpine PDX-V9, and supposedly a line out.

I personally never liked converters. My first loc was the Lc7i and I hated it. Never gives the sound that it should. Don't have experience with any other ones so i can't say every one is bad. If its that cheap then just try it. I'm sure crutch field will return it for you if need be.
