Re: My build

Well i had an idea. You can call around to pawn shops around your area, (because many of them have old xp laptops for sale) and ask them if you can rent one for the day. im willing to bet they would do it for like $20. then you could set up it up like you want and just return the laptop. seems like that could work for you.

I have an old Laptop with Win XP that I no longer use if you think it would help. Great build BTW, that's a sweet system!

Re: My build

I want the MS-8 but unless I won the lottery I have no room or business to grab one.

Re: My build

I see all this talk on here about an outboard processor, are the ones you guys looking at EQ's or crossovers because from all the things Ive been studying and as Ive been learning more and more, it seems there is no real need for an external crossover unless you build a completely custom setup in which the comp sets do not include one. Most reputable or almost all companies who put out component sets provide the best possible crossovers for those individual drivers so unless you were trying to use one for a setup where youd be powering a sub and other speakers of the same amp, is a crossover really worth anything? Can anyone say form experience how much of an improvement they make in a setup compared to running without one?

I know a nice EQ would be beneficial unless you have a nice one built into the HU, in my case I have a 3 band pretty basic one even thought its from Eclipse so I may be looking at adding a nice little EQ for some better sound customization.

Anyway all my stuff is being shipped out, if anyone cares, ended up going with the Hertz HSK 165's for up front after reading insane reviews and hearing one set. Pound for pound seems to be one of the best component speaker out there, got mine coming in at under $400 shipped for the set so Im happy with that.

Rear doors are getting some MB Quart PVI components that are much smaller but still had awesome reviews as far as SQ goes so thats what Im going for Sq and some power. The hertz handle 150 watts no problem and the MB take 75-80 watts which is good as Ill be pushing them off an older JL 450/4 (pre-slash)) model which is like new so Im hoping it'll sound pretty good. Will also be tossing my beat up radio-shack RCAs and going to all Stinger/Kicker signal cables/

Also decided to toss the old Type R sub (shell be missed and got a new sub, went with a JL W3v3 rated at 500 watts. Will be pushing it with an older MRP Alpine amp rated at 400watts @ 2 ohms which the sub is so thats should hit nice in my custom ported box. Also plan on dynamatting all the doors and putting some dynaxorb behind each one to kill that backwave issue I believe I was having.

Im planning on using my current speed 9 conductor wire which is plenty big enough and in great shape for speaker wire so that should be good to go. Also will be playing music from my ipod 95% of the time so the signal from the HU should be as good as it gets or close. Im just trying to think what else I may be overlooking as far as getting as much SQ as possible out of my build?

Bought all top notch speakers, pretty solid amps overall in the amp world, say an 8/10 on quality. Power ratings are all appropriate to push the speakers at the right levels. I am making sure I deaden the doors and am using top of the line signal wire (as if it matters, who knows?) Im thinking the last things to look at are maybe an external EQ and tweeter mounting location. Im thinking the top front portion of the door panel like in this build, or maybe the mirror bolt cover portion, right above the panel? Beyond that, what else is there besides spending wayyy more $? Any input is appreciated!

Re: My build

Yea, but Im really not interested in dropping more cash on the tuning system. Im ditching the current sub set up. The system is too much for two 8's so I grabbed the 12" Alpine Type R with a .7 cubic foot box

Re: My build

Ok, I finally made a video but the iPhone mic SUCKS. It doesnt do any bass. At least its pretty clear. Sorry. You can tell my the shaking of the phone that the sub was kicking pretty good.

Ill have to borrow my friend's Canon SLR to do another song.

The song is by Brian Bromberg "Never Give Up". Its a really good tune for benchmark testing.

Dont judge me.

Sound Test
