First Audio Setup
 
Review:simple, out of the way, Loud + deep for first sub, expensive, but works it for me





After much thought and some crutchfield advice, I went with the jl Stealthbox and Pioneer GM-D5800m


Over fall break, I finally got all my stuff done. Audio connection in towson did the initial installation for the amp and the stealthbox. I hated how they would not put the amp in my storage bin. I wanted to utilize my space in my trunk, and I hated be careful about taking down the seat. So i reinstalled myself.

It will be fine.

Many members have done it, including me, and overheating isnt an issue

brands of amps are different......some run very hot and some run cold, i've ran some amps that i could fry an egg on they were so hot, and thats only playin music for about a half hour (4ohms)..... and i've ran my current amp full tilt for almost 6 hours (long highway trip) and it was barely warm (1 ohm), it just depends on the brand and quality of the amp....alot of factors like voltage, ohms, airspace, ect, ect also can effect the temp. of the amp

I was worried about the overheating but I went on an eight hour trip back to college and i never ran into issues. And it was bumpin loud the entire time! :)

Hopfully this class-d pioneer amp holds up.... It does get somewhatwarm down there.

Can u share the price of the stealth box

Tclass117 10-29-2010 11:39 AM

Re: First Audio Setup
 
600$ at crutchfield.com, i believe.

much more expensive then others options. You can get better audio and bigger speakers for less, but i just looooove this option because it stays out of the way.
