    Thinking about getting a new sub

    I'll be looking into the subs suggested, but I must be honest. It hit me last night, but I'm really leaning towards the TREO TE. I used to have 2 TREO SSi12.22's and loved them.

    Thinking about getting a new sub

    I'm on my phone at work, lunch break, so my time is limited, but what are the costs of these subs? Link.
  3. It's been awhile since I've been here working 60+ hours aweek. First off, I love my clarIon SSW1200 and have been very pleased with it. I'm looking at lowering the overall wattage in my stereo. I'm looking at the SSA subs. My retirements: SQ Want some good output, SPL. And HAS to fit in a 1.45 cf ported box that is tuned to 37Hz. I simply don't have the room for a bigger box. Let me know please, what's good for 400 wrms AND 1000 wrms both at 4 ohms.
  4. It's cut first, boost last. Some times you have no choice but to boost. The adjustments you can make with the DQS you are referring to are the 2 bands parametric per channel. You can choose the amount of effect over the selected bandwidth. Ex: You select 500 Hz as the freq. You can then choose how far out to effect other freqs. 1/6, 1/3, ...1 oct. Both ways. So you will effect 250Hz to 1K Hz if you chose 1 oct. Make sense?
  5. Earthquake PA-4300 Phoenix Gold MPS2250 w/shroud LANZAR Opti500
  6. I'm biased to Clarion for good reasons, but Clarion aside, I would choose the Pioneer.
  7. How about you just sell me the amps? LOL. Well, it's not very powerful. Bridged at 4 ohms you'll be looking at roughly 150 watts. I'd just do 1 sub with a good sensitivity rating and put it in a ported box. Or, you could just sell me the amp.....

    Need a head unit

    Shows what your guy knows. Clarions looks have been questioned in years past in that they had a cheap look to them and I will agree, but Clarions Quality is as good as it's ever been. For me, personally, I'd look into a Clarion HU. They're coming back with top notch HU's w/features people want. BTW, I'm biased to Clarion, but for good reason.
  9. Also known as a full rande signal....... Or am I missing something? Kenwoods quality has been sub par in my experiances. I would pick the Clarion HU over the Kenwood anyday of the week. Just so it's known, I am biased to Clarion, but for good reason. The 2v vs 4v is mearly to help keep engine noise/other emmited noises out of the signal.

    silverado folding rear seat

    You are fine cutting those. The seat will still stay "locked" in the upright position. The tabs are only as long as they are to keep the back from falling forward when you go to lift the seat up. I used "C" channel to raise my seat up 2" and also 1 1/2" forward. Still locks in. Everything is mounted to my back wall. www.carstereo.com/smgreen20 < shows how I did it.
  11. I too would suggest the Leviathan, but also the Phoenix Gold XS6600 and, what I use, Audison LRx5.1k

    Send Chop some love

    Wish you the best man. I know what you're going through, May 4th 2009 Fired from my job after 12 yrs of service, May 25th 2009 my grandmother died (Monticello, KY), Aug 5th 2009 my Father-in-law died, five days later on the 10th of Aug 2009, MY dad died. It was a rough 5 months, but I got through it and whatever life throws at you and your family you'll get through it too. In my prayers man.

    Need some inexpensive 5.25's....

    $51.00 shipped. I'll be ordering a set for the wifes car in a few weeks. I use the 6 1/2"s in my truck and wouldn't use another mid. I have the PG RSDC's too and they are good, but their mid to the Silver Flutes, SF hands down. BTW, I'm very biased to d@mn near everything PG. https://www.madisound.com/store/product_info.php?cPath=45_228_254&products_id=843

    active set up cheap suggestions

    I would, personally, up the total to $250. They're old school amps but built like tanks and have some of the best SQ even in todays market and the amp will allow you to go fully active on the fronts w/o processing, the amp.... Phoenix Gold ZX450. It has one of the most complex/flexible xovers in/on an amp. You can HP the tweets from 300Hz up to ~5k Hz, and you can bandpass the mids from 30Hz to ~5k Hz. I have one and loved it. It sits as a collectors item now. They usually run for about $250 on ebay. That's where I would start. And if you have the PG RSD comps, there would be no need to upgrade your speakers.

    "No Limits"

    Just as good as the $500 set of Hybrid Audio L6 mids. I would still prefer to have the L6, but for the $30/per mid, I can't justify the cost diff right now. Later perhaps.
