    sound system in an Hybrid car ?

    Hello guys, i still have my Mazda CX-5 with everything still in, and working ! I am looking for my next car, thinking about an hybrid one, like a Lexus HYBRID suv. Who has ever installed a system in one ? I don't know what those car can handle. I'm sure I must keep the hu, but can I run 2 amplifiers ? I want to keep the same kind of power I have now : one 2000 w bass amp, and 1 or 2 amp(s) for 4 active channels (mids and highs). I'd love some examples. Thanks in advance. Alain

    sound system in an Hybrid car ?

    I will post pictures of the future install! of course ! I think I will have to keep the OEM head unit. But I don’t know what equipment to get yet to use the amps.

    sound system in an Hybrid car ?

    I’m looking now at a small BMW X1 2.0 liters with about 190-200 hp. I’m still undecided.

    They still have a charging system. Ok. Nice. I’ll have to look at their alternator. I will want to add a battery.

    Icon 12 review

    So you want your sub to play mid bass ? I loved my Icon and found it was quite musical ! Sorry to hear you don't like it so much. (did you checked the settings on the head unit ?)

    Enclosure Design for SSA Icon 12

    Hello nice choice : the Icon is amazing ! 31 Hz will give you plenty lows. I usually try to tune around 30-34 Hz. Not much difference. I listen to rap, and reggae (dancehall and old school).

    All my Audio friends has settled on down ??

    I still have my setup playing in my CX-5, and I'm happy with it...everyday ! Sometimes I take a look at the forum, but I think all the traffic went to facebook and all their car audio pages. All the forums took a hit with all the social media apps. I can't say it's better now. I learnt so much from here...Thank you SSA.

    Nice car. I love the sound !

    Looking for new front stage drivers.

    I don't know how loud are those 10s, but they should blend with your front stage ! It doesn't look like a monster sub setup (I may be wrong though). The Alpine type X are nice speakers, from what I remember. What don't you like about them ? Sometimes a new location can do wonders ! From the door to the A pillars or to the dash, you can have great improvements. What are your mids in ? a fiberglass box ? If so, it will be difficult to make them sound good ! Can't you use your doors only ? I'm not an installer, just thinking. You have good speakers, a good 4 ch amp : it's an install problem. You're in good hands with M5. Good luck.

    Need help deciding on components

    Lots of good advice here ! Don't use rear speakers, they're useless, they won't be audible! Spend a little more on the front stage (better speakers, some deadening on the doors,...etc). You will never egret it. .

    New 12" hellion installed

    How is set your LPF ? It seems low, but your picture is difficult to read !

    4 8s compared to a single 15.

    How much volume do you have for your subs ? It looks like you still have (little) room left in the trunk ! Nice choice !

    stupid ? About batteries

    Your second post ?!!! Wow ! IMO you should not run 14v batteries on a 12v electrical system.

    What subs and amp to get?

    You have room to be loud ! Is that only for the box, or for batts and amps too ?

    Cell Phone suggestions

    I have just got a 64 Go yellow iPhone XR ! I know you're not iPhone lovers, but I am !
  21. I love this forum. even if they have nice (SSA) products, they only want you to improve your car sound system ! They won't push you towards theirs products. Buuuut I can tell you their speakers sound very good. I've tried several SSA subs and loved them, and the Evil tweeters are still in my car : they're amazing. Check the available room you have for the sub box, and work from there.

    Amp or HU crossover, and HU suggestions

    The prs 80 is nice...and looks good too ! If you already have that Alpine h u, maybe you can find a good little DSP to have full control like you want. I don't think you can find the Alpine processor H800 (or something) for cheap. It would have been a really good solution. I was in the same boat, I wanted to go active but mu head unit could not do it : I bought a mini dsp , following M5 advice (always !).

    Cell Phone suggestions

    No love for iPhones here ? You don't have to get the latest one. An iPhone 6s+ or 7+ should be cheap enough to compete with those Pixels or Huawei phones. I'm thinking about getting a red XR.
